The Boys goes to Cinemax helmed by Rogan

Recommended Posts

The Boys had a great premise and not a bad mythology, and there's not a thing to fuck up. I don't think they can do the excessive digs at the big two so they'll tone it down.

It was, too!  Not amazing but enjoyable.  It changes plenty from the comics, in particular it's missing (nearly) all of Garth's weird sex humour which is a definite plus.

Wonder what the deal with

the occasional flies buzzing into shot

is ?  Presumably we'll find out next season.

The dude from Banshee's fantastic as The Homelander.

It was! Far too good to the the confluence of Seth Rogen and The Boys.

Didn't notice the thing you mention, John.

I checked on the internet to make sure I wasn't seeing things...

From 

here -

The first time the infamous fly appeared was in Episode 4 at around 46:29. On Reddit, fans shared a clip of the fly’s moment. It really seems like they purposefully added buzzing to the sound, as if there’s a reason the fly shows up in a few scenes. The only problem is, that reason was never revealed in Season 1.


The fly makes another appearance at the Christian expo that Starlight attended in the next episode too. It’s buzzing around her head when she’s talking to the teens and lies about being a virgin. The fly is seen again later buzzing around Hughie’s head when he’s walking outside at the same expo.

Just finished the last episode of season 1. Wow! 

I nearly dropped it after episode 2 because I thought there were no surprises for someone who's read the comics. Damn, was I wrong! They kept the concepts but made the story their own. There's so much to like, I wouldn't know where to start praising it. I guess the casting... the characters weren't true to the comics, but the casting was amazing. Even Karl Urban's accent improved! :biggrin: (He still lapses into New Zealand occasionally, for what it's worth.) 

Despite being f*cked-up, it's easy viewing. Showrunner Eric Kripke is one of the people behind the equally-likeable Supernatural and the similarities are there. 

Definite thumbs-up from me.
