The Boys

Created by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen. With Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty. A group of vigilantes set out to take down corrupt superheroes who abuse their superpowers.

When DC thought they were going to do Grim Dark comic book stories, I bet this is what they were really shooting for, but forgot to take the lens cap off. “The Boys” was a fantastic, tightly scripted 8 episode adaptation of a comic book series that was borderline pornographic with a significant amount of nudity and straight up sex sprinkled throughout the main story and the expansion stories. The Amazon version didn’t have even remotely the same amount of crude content, and they made a couple huge changes to how the story plays out, but I think the choices they made in those changes were for the best and made the entire thing work for the medium.

    Just a brilliant fucking show. Hands down THE best adaptation of an existing work that is currently on TV. Find me a better one. Either you can’t or you’re wrong.


    No, honestly…I liked this better than Preacher.


    You cut that out now. Don’t make me have to come over there!


    Because of this M[c]S recommendation, I just finished watching the first episode; it is fantastic.
    I am truly at a loss for words (which is rare).
    It’s difficult to concede this, but Gropegrope is right 😛 ; It is better than Preacher!


    I just finished episode 6 and it is indeed a bitter-sweet moment; I crave to watch more but there are only two episodes left and I want to savor them.
    The ride so far has been truly remarkable. I don’t want it to end.


    Dammit. Now that I’ve watched a few episodes, I may well have to concede that it’s as good as Preacher.
