I don’t want to talk too much in depth about this show because it is still pretty new and I don’t want to spoil any of it.
An overview of ‘The Boys’ describes it like this:
“Superheroes are often as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and sometimes even as revered as gods. But that’s when they’re using their powers for good. What happens when the heroes go rogue and start abusing their powers? When it’s the powerless against the super powerful, the Boys head out on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the Seven and Vought, the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. Based on the comic book series of the same name.”
Honestly, that’s just the basics of what ‘The Boys’ is. However, it is just enough to get you watching without fully knowing the chaos your about to get yourself into.
The Boys is intense. It’s pretty graphically violent and not at all family friendly in any way. In a similar way to how GOT is not at all family friendly.
However, it has a lot of good political commentary. Some intense depth with all of the characters. As well as some really interesting twists and turns. I don’t think I have a favorite character for the first time in my life, because everyone feels so real and has their own purpose and uniqueness and I cannot choose one person over another. Also, pretty much everyone feels almost equally bad as well. Except for Homelander, Homelander doesn’t even have a soul.
The Boys has this creepiness as well with many of the characters. There is more then a lot of questionable behavior. But, it also has a lot of grief motives on both sides and some interesting dynamics with characters like A-train that make you think about their morality in some interesting ways.
I won’t say more on this. Other then this show is really good and very timely. I’ve really enjoyed watching Season 1.
