The Boys (Amazon) #1: "Just remember who your friends and who your enemies are."

The Boys
{#1} ;













+

The Boys is set in a universe where superpowered people are recognized as heroes by the general public and owned by powerful corporation Vought International, which markets and monetizes them. Outside of their heroic personas, most are arrogant and corrupt. The series primarily focuses on two groups: the Seven, Vought International's premier superhero team, and the titular Boys, vigilantes looking to keep the corrupted heroes under control.

The Boys are led by Billy Butcher, who despises all superpowered people, and the Seven are led by the egotistical and unstable Homelander. As a conflict ensues between the two groups, the series also follows the new members of each team: Hugh "Hughie" Campbell of the Boys, who joins the vigilantes after his girlfriend is killed when one of The Seven, A-Train, collides with her at super high-speed, and Annie January / Starlight of the Seven, a young and hopeful heroine forced to face the truth about the heroes she admires.

Cast:
Karl Urban as Billy Butcher
Jack Quaid as Hugh "Hughie" Campbell
Antony Starr as John / Homelander
Erin Moriarty as Annie January / Starlight
Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve
Jessie T. Usher as A-Train
Laz Alonso as Marvin / Mother's Milk
Chace Crawford as Kevin / The Deep
Tomer Capon as Frenchie
Karen Fu kuhara as Kimiko / The Female
Nathan Mitchell as Black Noir
Elisabeth Shue as Madelyn Stillwel

How do you all manage to watch 8 eps so fast? I can only manage 2 a day and mostly binge on weekends.

My favorite character is actually Homelander. I know he's a psychopath but there's something about Antony Starr's acting that I really enjoyed. Then my other faves are Billy, Hugh & Annie. That ending though...what a cliffhanger. No wonder the show's renewed already.

I usually watch overnight. I understand why you like Homelander, he's kind of tragic, really.

He is. I'm glad we got that small backstory on him. I usually don't like "stock" villains but he is nothing like that and I really have to credit Antony's acting otherwise, I wouldn't care for this character.

I think my threshold for gore & violence has gone up because I wasn't fazed by any of the graphic scenes we got on the show.

I haven't seen Banshee and now I want to watch it because of him. I also didn't know he's from NZ so wow, the American accent is very good.
