It gets better! Looking forward to a second series.

It has a good twist in the tale at the end.

Re: The Boys

I have only seen episode 1 but I fell in love with it right from the opening scene. The thing which has confused me all my life with regards to my realism factor is that with every iteration of Superman you always get some armed bank robbers, high speed chase etc etc and that is without the uber bady in the film and the bad guys just keep coming back and trying again and again because they know they can get away with. Superman, like Starfleet, has the means to stop or put down his enemies yet always goes to pain staking lengths to do the complete opposite often to his detriment. If Superman showed them who was boss and that he was a force to be reckoned with everyone would think twice before embarking on a life of crime and the crime rate would go down. I think it is great that he is throwing bad guys down the street and hopefully we'll see some heat vision from the sky. All you need to do is set an example, the word will spread and everyone will fall in line.

Re: The Boys

I am just over half way through. I have to say that I thought the bit with the baby at the end of episode 5 was hilarious.

I think that's why The Boys is very different to a lot of mainstream hero's.

Superman and others fight for truth justice and the American way. They are there to save people and stop bad guys, they are not murderers so will do everything they can to avoid deaths. Same for Batman, he usually avoids guns, instead incapacitating his enemies.

I'm up to ep5 so far with this and the 'heroes' are a bit out of control and pretty loose cannons. It's great though.

Re: The Boys

Just finished it and I must say this was a fantastic surprise of a series. There have been a lot of scifi series coming out of Amazon and Netflix such as Origin, Nightflyer and Another Life which have been very sub par. The Boys was fantastic. It is very much like Game of Thrones where it isn't black and white and you don't have clear cut bad guys and good guys. I have enjoyed it so much so that I force rationed myself to one episode per night because I didn't want it to finish. I wish they had made a full season of 24 episodes to finish the current story because it would be a amazing for them to tell it all in one go and as it went along you could imagine the social media discussions going on and the hype building up. Shame they decided to spread it over multiple smaller seasons and we have now got to wait a year to find out what happens.

I loved how it ended, there is so much going on and all I can say is thank god we know it has already been renewed for a second season.

Re: The Boys

They did change quiet a number of things from the comics though.

Some of the plots from this first season doesn't happen till late on in the story of the comics.

Very good adaptation though.
