The Boys Season 3 Episode 1 – 5 – There Are No Heroes

Share:

The Boys is back for Season 3 and it's as wild and crazy as you could imagine. The show was never afraid before to "go there" but this season, they're really decide to not even try to pretend anymore. This season is very clearly tying Homelander's behaviors to things we saw from Donald Trump and his administration. It's interesting watching some people get mad when this show takes some of the absurd and ridiculous behaviors of Trump and has Homelander do them and all the sudden be mad about "politics" being injected into the show. Mind you, last season had a whole ass Nazi on it. And it's not just Homelander. A-Train out here looking like a whole ass sellout just to get a pat on the back from folks that hate him. 

And then there's Billy Butcher and Huey. This season really is about crossing the lines and trying to do "whatever it takes" to win and how that's never a good choice. This is all going to end poorly. But that's what makes The Boys so good. Yes there are some over-the-top and gratuitous moments but the story is actually very well put together and it doesn't just lean on shock and awe. 

We'll be back to discuss the final 3 episodes in a few weeks.

    I love this show and I enjoy it for what it is. It’s a show about what if superhuman people were real people and that’s great, but I have an issue with people calling it a superhero show when it’s clearly not. There are no heroes. They are all terrible people. Maybe Annie and Kimiko could qualify as superheroes, but that’s it. Everyone else is no from me. The comparisons to other comicbook properties is bothersome. Not everything can be ultra violent or a gore fest and everything shouldn’t be. I love Ms. Marvel for what it is because I know what kind of story they’re telling. The excuse of it’s a kids’ show is tired. These same people went out of their way to watch Spider-man in high school at midnight. Gtfoh! I’ve been listening to you guys for years and thank you for what you do. I look forward to your young justice phantoms talk.
