Likewise.. He did a dam good job.. Also shows how hard it is for non A list black actors to get high profile quality work. Id never been impressed with his work prior to this. But he killed it.

8 episodes left me feeling cheated btw. That finale felt like a build up to a climax. I thought there were atleast 2 more episodes after watching that. Kinda ended abruptly imo.
Nah 8 ep is good bigbro cause onze they go pissed it they will fuck it up. 10 max

Also he was good in breakout Kings until they decided to kill him forshock

killed the mayor
knew he was being hunted
killed the airplane and had a new narrative by the time he landed
planted super terrorist to go kill
found out about his son and took the dude to his wife who left and didn't think twice about it
Damn...

I think i let the comic effect my judgment

To think they've only showed a tiny corner of the boys universe.. Those other camps.. All those missions.. Man shit gets fucked up.. It's some shit going on they can definitely leave out. That's where being true to the source material meets your offending my senses..

It's crazy.. garth ennis hates supes and that Probaly makes him one of the best people to write them. He exposes the flaws peels back all that pretty shit.

Great show. Now I'm not a big super hero fan so I thought all those Netflix shows were trash. I watched this and then watched the Avengers Endgame for the first time Saturday smh The Boys ruined Endgame for me. This show is more my speed when it comes to this stuff

Who said anything about superhero fatigue?

Amazon Prime has reported that its Garth Ennis superhero adaptation from producer Seth Rogen, The Boys, is already among its most watched original series ever. And that's only after two weeks.

“I’m so beyond thrilled with the response to season 1. And mainly, it’s made me get my ass in gear and work even harder on season 2,” executive producer Eric Kripke said. “I don’t want season 2 to go bigger, I want it to go deeper. A more intense, more insane, more wrenching, more character-driven season. It’s my one and only goal to make season 2 even better than season 1.”

As a streaming service, Amazon Prime has followed the lead of its competitors and peers in not making actual viewership data to the general public. So any self-reporting of success should be taken with a grain of salt. But in this instance, it's not hard to conceive of The Boys's major success. The show currently has an 81% on Rotten Tomatoes with an audience score of 94%. And anecdotally it seems to be a driver of much online discussion.

The Boys is among the darkest and most intriguing takes of superherodom on television yet. The show takes its lead from Ennis and Darick Robertson's bleakly hilarious comic book series. The Boys imagines a world in which superheroes are not only real but actual celebrities. When those superpowered celebrities' reckless behavior jeopardises the safety of the world, the CIA squad known as "The Boys" are sent in to check them.

“We are thrilled that The Boys have surpassed our predictions for viewing in its first two weeks, and has become one of our most watched Amazon Original series by our Prime Video customers,” Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement. “This creates great momentum and excitement for us as we get ready for season two.”

Damn, I didn't think I would be into the show like this. Now I can't wait for season 2.

My thoughts below (hid for spoilers)

  • Black Noir is my favorite supe. Turns out dude who plays him is black.
  • Butcher is just as much as an asshole as the supes.
  • Elisabeth Shue played the hell out of her role. Now that she is gone you know our boy, Giancarlo Esposito, is gonna take her place as the corporate antagonist.
  • LMAO how they portrayed real life B-list actors as washed up has-beens on the show.
  • Damn, all that hate and rage and years of planning vengeance only to find out your wife, that you thought was murdered, was simply a cheating bitch.
  • Mother's Milk shouldn't have put his family at risk like that.
  • Doppleganger is a real problem. Dude could ruin more lives than any of the other supes.
