I’m looking forward to this
KeijiKadekawa - Agreed, but luckily they have Eric Kripke as showrunner and writer for the series.
Einar - I've binged the show, and I thought it was great. A lot of changes from the comic, which normally annoys me, but it all worked IMO. Some of the changes are even for the better. The Deep and A-Train are much more fleshed out characters than in the book. Homelander is fucking perfect, Butcher is great too. The over the top violence and peversion from the book is toned down, but still present, which is ok with me as I feel Ennis just tried too hard to be shocking sometimes.
I might give this a shot. Amazon is impressing me with their original content. They seem to be trying for quality projects, unlike Netflix, which has some good stuff and a lot of abominably terrible stuff.
Well, I'm four episodes in and I'm not sure I'm going to continue. I seem to remember that The Boys were a tightknit group, right from the beginning, so the scene where Butcher owes Frenchie $40 000 and then Frenchie puts a gun in Butcher's face was really off-putting. These guys are basically thugs from a Guy Ritchie movie instead of highly lethal, highly capable special forces.
The fact that Hughie knows Annie is a super hero is a major change and I don't know if I like it. Maybe they looked at that sort of set-up and thought it was too lame to build tension, but, Jesus, when you write characters as well as Ennis, you can make that work. But they can't write characters as well as Ennis, so maybe it's better that they changed it.
but then... a few days after his fiance was killed in front of him and he's asking for Annie's number? That just doesn't make sense, unless it was some kind of attempt to leave the door open to use her in their mission (which really isn't a mission so much as they're a bunch of wankers in a bad spot).
I don't enjoy many TV shows these days and I don't think this is doing it for me, tbh.
Little things, but it basically comes down to me just being tired of television conventions.
Loved it. Never read the comic but thought it was great.
The scene in the finale in the chair was epic!
