Binged it in 2 days.  Really, really good. Sets up season two very well. I can see why this got picked up fast.

 

I have to say Amazon Prime has really stepped up its game, fewer series then Netflix, but the quality is much more consistent. This, Expanse season 4, and the MMM (yes guilty pleasure, it can't all be Comics and SciFi), they are developing a really solid library of shows.

Shhh - I've only stock piled 12 copies of Boys #1 and was hoping to get up to 20 high grade copies before stuff starts filming.

Quoting my comment from almost 2 years ago - I wish i would have had the patience to keep all 12 copies until the big run up but any profit is good profit.

I loved it. Wish it had been longer than 8 episodes. How many issues of the book does the first season cover?

One minor critisism that Americans won't catch is Karl Urban's English accent is just awful. I wasn't sure if the charcter was English or an Australian until it was spelt out and It's not just me a bunch of other people have said the same. Strange considering that he is a great actor who did a perfect English accent in LOTR and a decent one in Ragnarok. It does get better in the later episodes.

I'm trying to not binge.  I wanna be able to have some anticipation build and not try to find something new in a couple of days.  Helps to have a few shows to cycle thru .

Loved the  2nd episode, better than the opener.

(Regarding MMM - the Catskills was some of the funniest TV ever )

Amazon's The Boys is making a big impression on fans, including an ending that definitely leaves fans with some big questions after the credits roll. That's led to many wondering if a season 2 is in fact on the way and if it is wondering what sort of storylines and themes we'll see explored in that second season. Showrunner Eric Kripke recently broke down some of the biggest questions and reveals in the initial season, and that included that big cliffhanger and what the focus of season 2 will be. Warning, some massive spoilers for season 1 of The Boys are incoming, so you've been warned.

 

“Once you end up on that season 1 cliffhanger, you know that’s going to be a big part of season 2, you know that Stillwell’s death is going to be a big part of season 2, and superheroes being in the military,” Kripke told EW. “I always try to write the season finale as a pilot for the following season and make sure that whatever we’re talking about in that finale are issues we’re going to be interested in exploring next year."

 

"So far, we’ve been doing that and it’s been turning out well," Kripke continued. "We have this real quirk of the show that it keeps reflecting reality. Now people are scared of people coming over the border and people are feeling like we might have to go to war, and suddenly the world is so much more of an intense place than it used to be — and so is our season 2.”

 

In season 1 Homelander managed to make the heroes in the military goal a reality, thanks to him spreading a powerful superhero making drug all around the world. Now the heroes have superpowered villains to face, and that pretty much makes them a necessity. Not only that, but then there's that whole discovering you have a superpowered child thing to deal with, and Butcher's got a few revelations to deal with as well.

Stone Me - that's how you do it!

Loved this comic since I read the whole series years ago.Even bought a #1 3 yrs ago to keep on my wall - could NEVER see this being made into the R rated series it had to be (Think Preacher)

They nailed it!

Only complaint - would have preferred Anthony Starr to have played wee Hughie - kinda looks like him a bit from the actual comic...

 

Jings!
