    The Boys (Amazon Prime series)

    Anyone else watching this? I finished Season 1 last night. I have to say I'm really enjoying it.

    Just started reading the comics. Garth Ennis also wrote Preacher. So far the quality is similar, and I've heard good things about the show. I guess I'll be in to watch it whenever I finish the first few collections.

    I was merely curious when I saw the first trailer. The involvement of Karl Urban made me check it out. I got about 1/2 way through the first episode when I truly realized it wasn't a Marvel knock-off or spoof and I bought in. It's dark, sinister and well acted. I am anxious for Season 2!

    P.S. Homelander is a dick. Holy shit.

    I'm in the middle of episode 5 and really enjoying it. My son watched it and recommended it.

    My brother recommended it who's a fan of the comics, I'm about 4 episodes it, its really good stuff. Working for an American Multinational makes me cringe with the accuracy of the Marketing department. Brutal.

    BTW, my son said he glanced at the first page of one of the comics and got a major spoiler, so beware!

    As to be expected, the comic differs in several ways (no “Wee Hughie”! The character is Scottish in the book) from the show.

    Some of these elements look like they’ll drive the plots of both in different directions. So far I’ve read 12 issues and seen two episodes. But a lot of the “beats” (if you will) occur in both.

    So, yeah, you’ll get some spoilers for the show if you read the comic (and vice versa). But both are thus far entertaining.

    The comic is a hell of a lot more viscious....

    Not bad, some really clever scenes strewn about the season.

    Homelander is the star of the show, I just couldn't bond with the "Boys".

    My son said one of the creators did an Ask Me Anything on Reddit and someone asked if there was stuff they wanted to show that Amazon wouldn’t allow. He said there was a scene where Homelander was jerking off on top of a tall building while laughing maniacally. LOL.
