Looks like it should be fun after seeing what Seth Rogen did w/ Preacher...

The first trailer for Amazon’s The Boys showcases the upcoming series’ violence and sexuality. These heroes aren’t going to save the world anytime soon.

Based on the Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic book series of the same name, The Boys takes place in a world where superheroes exist — but because of their high-profile celebrity status, most of the world’s superheroes, particularly an elite group known as “The Seven,” are corrupt and reckless. Thus, a secret CIA task force known as “The Boys” is in charge of policing superhero behavior, something they must do without any super powers.

A film version of The Boys was optioned in 2008, but by 2013, the project was canceled. The Amazon series will be its first on-screen adaptation, and is produced by the team behind Sausage Party (Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg) and the creator of Supernatural (Eric Kripke). Starring Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Elizabeth Shue as Madelyn Stillwall, and Karen Fukuhara as The Female, The Boys premieres on Amazon on July 26.

Holy sheet! When Maeve showed up and that beat down started... that was freaking amazing and so brutal.

Of course, as soon as she flew off I knew what was going to happen with Ryan, Becca and SF. That seemed to fit the narrative arc they were setting up.

The season Finale.... HOLY CRAP!! I mean, I had to pause it to come here and write HOLY CRAP!!

LOL
It’s an over the top genre show so it will never be judged alongside prestige dramas, but it’s one of the best constructed AND acted shows (at least among the leads) out there

Yeah. Them removing Beeca from the table was one of the most obvious takes they hinted at. Everything else? Wow.

That arse-whipping SF received was a thing of beauty. Makes what moment we got in Avengers: Endgame look like nothing.

I honestly don't know who this is referencing.
Ashley that works at Vought.

I find the way villains are dealt with in too many shows seems to be very underwhelming. That arse whooping Stormfront received and how she ended up was quite satisfying.

What do ya'll think explains the difference between "laser my tits" and what Ryan Butcher did to Stormfront?

i'm sure HL was holding way back on lasering the boobs, and that was Ryan's first ever experience of hating - 'i'm watching a hateful woman kill my mom' kind of hate - i imagine that's way more powerful than what HL used

but i agree that there's something weird about SF's power this episode - she can toss a whole minivan a ton, but 3 Boys she just pushes back a bit - i wonder if we'll find that Vought gerryrigged her V or something

"Girls really do get it done." I laughed so hard I had to pause and back up. Best one liner of the whole season.

So we've taken two seasons to get to the plot of the comics. Now The Boys DO work for a government agency policing Supes. Also, Butcher's wife now has died because of her son, but with a different twist here - and her son is still alive, so that's different, too. I wonder where they go next with this. Will they fall back onto the storyline of the comic now or continue to take their own path?

That. was. so. good.


"Hey, Kraut" was probably the most fist-pumping moment in this shows 2 seasons. I was sitting with my basset hound in my lap and she had to move quickly when I jumped out of my recliner.
I actually thought it was Kimoko at first - like the neck snap fixed her vocal chords. Regardless, I woke my dog too


So SF's lightning seemed to kill the plebes pretty easily early in the season. But now it seemed to knock the Boys down and maybe give them a rug burn and a headache. I know they had some weapon to handle her, but I didn't see anything about a defensive countermeasure.
They have plot armor on, it blends well with clothing haha

What's the deal with whats her faces hair falling out?
UTJ mentioned it already, but she's pulling it out like a nervous tic. I do the same thing on the right side of my beard and it's obvious.

In addition to previous replies, he's had no real control over his power - that was just unbridled raw power. Also, it could be that it's his primary power whereas Homelander may have it as a weaker "additional" power. IE: HL has so many powers, they may not be as strong as someone with fewer.


And last
You just knew when Butcher said "remember what I told you" it was going to be "don't be a vajayjay" - and I still fell out laughing

Thats one of the great things about this show. Every episode has one really good comedic moment that makes you bust out laughing.

Wouldn't Starlight be able to absorb SF's electricity and essentially get a serious power up to throw back at her?
i think that’s what a lot of us were assuming
And maybe she did draw some ofSF’s power which is what weakened her enough for the curb stomp
It definitely feels like they’re going to address that next season
