I’m getting close to the end of the first season of The Boys. This world is dark and depressing, but oddly compelling. Things are building to a head as both sides are feeling the pressure and events gain momentum. A major confrontation is coming closer, we learn some motivations for major characters, and fewer and fewer of the characters are among “The Innocents.”
The Boys is a brutal, ugly, and arguably sick and twisted series about superhumans as celebrities. It’s also remarkably well written, with a lot of detail and some great interlocking plots.
While I consider myself a big hero fan, I can’t watch everything at once. Sometimes, this results in me taking a while to get to something that’s been out for some time. That’s the case with The Boys, which I’m just starting now.
