if you don't like superhero films for what they are but think of them as action films you may not like the boys. so i get why people may not like it

people hate what they hate and like what they like. people's taste will always differ. what is a masterpiece for you is another person's trash.

But there has to be some degree of objectivity.

Even if somebody hates superhero movies, the person still has to agree that Avengers is a good movie.

when someone has made up their mind to never watch anything superhero ish, what makes you think avengers will be any different? objectivity doesn't apply to petty likes and dislikes. for example I hate cartoons. death note is something I will never watch because it's a cartoon. even though it's highly regarded by anime lovers, it's still a cartoon to me. when it comes to viewing pleasures, people think in terms of this one good, this one bad. it's basic.

Re: What Series Are You Watching Now? Part 2 by kendrick93(m): 3:28pm On Aug 11
first three episodes of the boys was really good....thought the latter episodes were boring..
Basically nothing was concluded after eight episodes...for an eight episodes series I'm surprised how much they dragged things..

Abeg what did they drag? Did you want everything to end in the first season? The fact that the wife Butcher aims to avenge is alive with Homelander's son is not conclusive enough for you? What was boring about the 5 other episodes? We're you looking for fight scenes?

ehm maybe some fights eh... imagine me thinking a superhero show should have some fight scenes..
The boys(butcher and co) spent a full eight episodes without confrontation against their so called enemies apart from the translucent fight which was literally the most exciting part of the show..
Don't tell me u didn't feel the tension when they captured translucent...
them not having an open confrontation for the most part is a big Plot hole imo

The fact that you think the Translucent fight was "literally the most exciting part of the show" tells me with absolute certainty that you didn't get the goal of the series.
Them not having an open confrontation is a plothole? Dude, they're fvcking ordinary human beings with the exception of Kimiko and you saw how Black Noir and A-Train bodied her. They defeated Translucent by luck and barely survived that fight. This is not the Arrowverse where Oliver Queen uses The Flash and Supergirl to shine. Any open confrontation will end with The Boys dead in less than a minute.
Open confrontation he says. You must be high on Compound V

I'm guessing your best series is the flash. Movies like the boys are for mature minds. The way season 1 ended is phenomenal. All along butcher has hated and hunted sups because he was sure homelander raped and killed his wife, but he didn't it was a romantic affair and she got pregnant. But homelander is still a psycho

Are you sure you've seen the series . One episode was enough to tell it is complete trash, will probably be worse than iron fist. What are they gn be acting for a whole season the plot is too week, you'll get sick of the main character in no times, and the graphics mtchewww

it really was...they chickened out imo..
what stopped homelander and his fellows from going after the boys then.
don't even get me started about the whole a-train dude.
dude is basically flash and all he ever did was racing in tracks. is he superhero or an athlete?
Like I said the show was carried mostly by the acting performances of Karl urban(butcher), homelander dude.....strong acting chops from the most of the cast...

Homelander didn't know their identities until Mesmer sold them out and he had been looking for them before then. The moment he discovered their identities, he and Vought went after them and their families. Milk immediately got his family out while Hughie and Kimiko had to incapacitate A-Train to get his dad out. Seriously, are you sure you were following the story?
How many times did you see the supes do any heroic stuff? Most of their saves were PR for their brands. A-Train's racing story showed his insecurities and addiction problems, as well as the workings at Vought.
Like I said before, the show ain't for you, bro.

I have come to realise that many people cannot think deeply about the stuff they watch. This is why simple plot movies consistently outsell complex plot movies.

i'm not the type to criticize people for not liking a particular series. We all have different taste in series, however you need to understand what the series is all about, the series is not your typical superhero series.

1. to these people they are after two things,, money and power. That's why they are pursuing the military deals and that's why they have PR teams. you will notice only people with either great superpower or marketable superpower were selected. ( in the context )

the series is trying to focus on the "dark" side of superheroes telling us things are not what it seems to be and it's very much relatable in this part of the world. some people present themselves as our hero and saviour when in the right sense they are only after their own selfish interest and they are too powerful to be confronted, when you raise alarm and expose them for who they really are people find it hard to believe and their minions come for you. they continue their bad deeds secretly unchecked under the disguise of being the saviour.

if you can see it from this perspective you will get what the series is all about.

2. like i said the boys is not your typical flash, arrow avengers type movies/series ....

another example is the way they handle casualties also relatable. how people in power treat killing their fellow humans as "collateral damage"



lastly the ending was epic, imagine fighting for something all your life and discovering you have been fighting for a wrong course.

The idea of a one-on-one confrontation had me in fits. One-on-one confrontation with who? Even Ezekiel (The elastic preacher) would give them a sound trashing talk more of anybody in The Se7en.
