The Boys Universe (The Boys, Diabolical, Gen V etc)

Fuck fuck fuck what a finale.

I have to admit this season was a bit of a chore to get through at times and I wasn’t really sure where they were going with it but they really brought it all together.

Maeve being iconic, WOMEN getting shit done, I haven’t been this satisfied with a TV show since Dany got her arse on a boat in 2016.

The 3 women beating the nazi senseless was great and a nice payoff to the “girl power” talk from earlier this season.

I found the season rather convoluted overall but I think it set up nicely for a 3rd. The AOC character twist was unexpected. Curious where they’re headed with that.

The creators gave an interview saying Amazon nixed that Homelander rooftop scene last season so it’s hilarious they got it in this year.

This sums up my thoughts perfectly. Fairly bland season trumped by a blinder of a finale. Starlight finally getting to kick some arse, and Maeve saving the day being the highlights.
 
I’m late to the party, but I flew through the first season and am two episodes into the second. It’s great! I’m really impressed at how interesting all* the characters are - they are mostly assholes, but layered, interesting assholes.

Homelander has to be one of the most compelling, terrifying antagonists I’ve seen on screen in a long time. Perfect casting, too: Starr embodies the clean cut, all-American (and clearly did more homework on his accent than Karl Urban) but there’s something a little off about him and it’s fascinating.

*I am both bored and continually annoyed whenever Butcher is on screen. I can’t stand the accent and I’ve completely gone off him as a character.

What did you think of his family member accent? I don’t understand why they didn’t just hire a British person for those roles if that’s what they wanted?

I have just seen the episode his Aunt is in and fucking hell it is one of the worst attempts at a British accent I’ve seen on TV. So distracting.

Watching five minutes of Eastenders is *not* enough research, Barbara.
 
That he didn't receive a nomination this time around is mind boggling.
It really is. The show being nominated for Outstanding Drama Series seems to be a step in the right direction though, so hopefully with some luck (and interest from Emmy voters), he can get a nomination this year.
