Premiered back in 2019, The Boys felt like a perfect bold remedy to superhero fatigue. Producer Eric Kripke‘s show not only parodied the overwhelming presence of superheroes in popular culture but also critiqued corporations, politicians, and their corrupt connections.

What Is The Boys About?

THE BOYS is a wicked take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, & as influential as politicians, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” and their formidable Vought support.

Is It Worth Watching?

There is one thing that The Boys excels at, which is consistency. If you anticipate the same disturbing visuals, social critique, and acting as seen in previous seasons, then you’re in for a treat. Three episodes out of the eight are LIVE as of now. So far, Homelander remains the sociopath who views humans as “toys” and inferior to himself and other supes.

Moreover, Butcher remains the cunning & destructive saviour of mankind. The rest of the team strives to achieve their objectives, while The Seven exists solely to cater to his master Homelander.
