This looks great and I love Karl Urban in everything he shows up in .

[Red Band Trailer] F*ck superheroes. Why? Because when people score limitless power, they become a**holes. Drunk with power and fame. Thatís where The Boys come in. from u/TheBoysTV

Welcome to the Banshee club. What a fine ass-kicking, tits-and-ass, pure entertainment series it was.

So 3 episodes up front and then they'll release a new one every Friday? What a load of shit. Hopefully the episodes get leaked early and the pirates put them all up on rarbg.

Maybe I'm expecting too much. The first season blew me away and the second seems to be dragging along. The first season spent some time with backstories for the characters however nothing on Stormfront. I also find The Deep really annoying...

I agree that The Deepís scenes really drag on for me. I couldnít care less about his arc and just want them to get back to the main plot whenever heís on screen.

Patton Oswalt might've worked as the voice of the gills if he hadn't done the same character on Happy! and if I hadn't binged half of A.P. Bio right before.

Is A.P. Bio good? I love Dennis in It's Always Sunny.

I'd characterize it as . . . uneven humorous.

It's a sitcom, and it does that well with decent characters, bits and lines. The premise and execution requires a suspension of disbelief on another level though.

Basically, 'Dennis' is a frustrated academic who got hornswoggled out of some of the acclaim and status he thinks he's entitled to, and has to return to his hometown and teach a HS Bio class. Only he spends all his time scheming and using his students to try to get some o his status back.

Think of Costanza's premise for the show within a show on Seineld, where the lead gets into a fender-bender and is sentenced to be a butler. It's ridiculous, but could work if the writing is good, if you get my meaning.

Basically the premise is just what they hang their bits and plots on. Lots of teachers not teaching, and students not studenting.

But it's a reliable chuckle. . .

I really thought the big reveal would be that Becca's a Homelander groupie and it was consensual

I was irritated a bit by how this plot line developed, even if it makes sense (I cant fathom a mother not caring more for her child in most instances). Good episode even though it was apparent this was the budget saver/plot service episode.

Not your fault, but there needs to be some way to 'super' spoiler this particular spoiler, as it's a huge twist of the comics that may or may not even show up in the show itself [some say that particular narrative has already been thwarted or at least neutered], and even the existence of it changes how you watch the show.

I mean, it's an inherent danger of a show with big twists that already exists in another medium.

[maybe add something like 'don't look unless you want the existing comics to affect your viewing experience']

On another board I frequent, people are required to notate the spoiler is related to the comics.

So according to the showrunner, it was the show's producers that decided against dropping all episodes at once, not Amazon, yet the guy wonders why people are giving it 1 star on the various rating sites.

:-)

It's really difficult to underestimate the stupidity of such a move, especially when millions upon millions of people are still stuck at home.
