Award nominations in Chace Crawford's future?

by Anonymousreply 109/03/2020

Thanks for the heads-up, OP.

I love Chace Crawford - he is so hot. Beautiful face and body.

I was really caught off-guard by the gratuitous cruelty to the blind superhero.

Even though I think the show is intelligent and mostly worthwhile, it bugs me that that sort of thing is the part of the show that some people most enjoy.

Homelander's cruelty is terrifying in these three episodes. I thought he couldn't get any more evil than season one, but his sociopathic tendencies are cranked to eleven now.

I imagine Homelander acts out now that he no longer has a mommy figure in his life to rein him in.

The Deep had such a LONG stroke on the dick we could not see. One really got the impression he was working with 8 or 9. I hope it's a human cock and not hybrid. Did he agree to fuck the dolphin? Just mutual JO?

Woah. Stormfront is one hardcore bitch who takes no prisoners. And after the ending of the third episode even Homelander can't touch her.

by Anonymousreply 1509/04/2020

During the rooftop confrontation I thought, "Oooh, Stormfront has a double meaning." The actress is excellent.

by Anonymousreply 1609/04/2020

I thought Chace Crawford was by far the best thing in the three episodes. His hallucination of his gills talking to him was hilariously disgusting. His character is so loathsome yet also you feel sorry for him... unlikely anyone else, which is the show's biggest problem. I just cannot sympathize with Hughie. He's like the Wesley Crusher of "The Boys."

I find the Seven are hugely more interesting than the boys, and the female members of the Seven are hugely more interesting than the male members (except for The Deep). Homelander always makes me tense because you never know when he's going to go off, but the character is actually not that interesting after we've seen what he's really like and how sadistic he is. I guess we'll just see him getting worse and worse as the series goes on.

I get really tired of Karl Urban's bristling and posing, which is more the fault of the writers than the actor, although his awful Mockney accent is his own fault.

It's okay this second season but so far not that scary. The cruelty sometimes makes you wince, but they've made the ultraviolence so over the top it's more hilarious than scary. I knew there was no way they were going to have the child be shown to seriously hurt after he was thrown off the roof--that seems to be too far even for them. Even when Stormfront killed the children in the apartment, they kept it off camera.

My guess is they will play with the fact that the actress playing Stormfront is (pretty obviously) Jewish.

by Anonymousreply 1709/04/2020

In the first episode of the second season Homelander opens the final bottle of Madelyn's breast milk and laps it up like a dog at the beginning. That was so fucking creepy.

by Anonymousreply 3809/06/2020

Aya Cash is really good. I was surprised how she was able to shift this character from obnoxiously sassy in the first episode to cruel in the second episode to a psychopathic sadist in the third, all depending on who she was talking to and whether it was in front of cameras.

One of the weirdest things about these show, though, is that it acknowledges the power of social media, but nevertheless no one ever seems to have a cell phone handy to film and stream one of the supes when they go nuts and torture someone or hideously kill someone. They all think Homelander and Black Noir and Stormfront are heroes but somehow they have no idea of the truly horrible things they've done.

I just finished my second pass watching the first three episodes. One of the things I noticed this time around was that Patton Oswalt does the voice for the Deep's gills.

Something they've left hanging to be answered in subsequent episodes is the relevance of older supe "Liberty," from the cover of the magazine that Colonel Mallory was reading; she asked Billy Butcher if he remembered her.

I'm sad that they've already written off Kenji, Kimiko's brother. He was cute.

Just his head, R60. It has become a trope in films/television as far as depicting extreme emotional distress or crisis. Think Luke Wilson in 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐑𝐨𝐲𝐚𝐥 𝐓𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐛𝐚𝐮𝐦𝐬 (2001), just before he attempted suicide. It's related to the practice of cutting; same sorts of motivations.

As I was watching episode 3, it struck me that most of the Seven are wearing gloves as part of their uniforms, except Maeve and A-Train - they have forearm sleeve things instead. Gloves seem to be a required item to the superhero ensemble: Ironman, Batman, Capt America, Catwoman, Black Panther, Deadpool, etc. Got me thinking.... why gloves? They'd be hot and just an unnecessary barrier.

Ep. 4 was waaaaaay too talky. It astonishes me it that amazon allowed it to be an extra nine minutes beyond the hour length. They could have easily cut back the dialogue scenes with Butcher and Becca, and with Hughie and Starlight, and the monologues from the auditioning girls.

Kripke seems incredibly self-indulgent because he knows he's making a fortune for amazon.prime right now and they'll give him whatever he wants. Despite the fact that Karl Urban and Jack Quaid are weak in their roles (Quaid is completely miscast), we were forced to see the two of them "act"--inadequately--all over the place tonight.

The only scenes that got me interested were those with Homelander (Anthony Starr is terrific--I'm always afraid he's going to go off suddenly, and he often does) and the big meeting with Dawnn Lewis. She is a terrific actress.

In episode four I thought Starlight would turn out to be Doppelganger reporting back to Homelander after the road trip. But then we got that creepy scene at the end.

I think that show has the potential to turn off any nerd's obsession with superheroes for good. They do some fucked up shit on the show. Including that Lady Liberty in the flashback scene (the still alive victim on the hood of the car will probably give me nightmares for days).

I feel very sorry for Queen Maeve's ex-girlfriend, Elena. She basically has a permanent target on her back, and she'll never be safe while Homelander is alive. I'm very curious what Maeve's plan is to save her that involves the Deep.

One of the biggest points of curiosity for me is what kind of fail-safe plan Vought has in store if either Homelander or Stormfront turn on them. they seem fully aware of how unstable they both are, and yet Mr. Edgar seems to be completely confident he can keep them both in check. They must have some sort of plan for how to stop them if they run amok.

The worst thing about the show is that the Boys themselves are so much more less interesting to me than the Seven. Since they have no powers, really their only weapons are subterfuge and blackmail, and while it might be interesting to see normal people cope with fighting supes, I find all of them uninteresting. They're mostly antisocial jerks and sociopaths, except for MM and Hughie, and so far MM is not very interesting (though the actor who plays him is charismatic) and Hughie is whiny. I like the actor who plays Frenchie, but I just cannot stand Karl Urban's Butcher. He's completely unappealing--whenever he gets in a big fight (like today's episode) I don't root for him at all. Only Garth Ennis (who loves antisocial characters) could have created him.

We don't know that exploding the CIA lady's brain was done by Vought with microchips--Hughie said he thought a supe assassin with the ability to make people's minds explode (like in the movies "Scanners") was in hiding nearby and did it unseen.

In any case--I'm not sure they could even do that with Homelander. They could have done that to Translucent, since only his skin was invulnerable; but they've suggested Homelander is invulnerable on the interior of his body just like on the exterior, much like Superman is.

Maybe his kid will kill him? Homelander, Jr? Vought could just use the threat of his mom's safety and the kid would throw a tanty and off his pops.

by Anonymousreply 13309/20/2020

The mom is really kind of fucked. She needs Vaught to protect her and her son from Homelander, but can she trust them with her kid? They'll do all sorts of experiments now his powers have emerged.

Apparently they recast the actor who plays Ryan with one of the twins from Big Little Lies. They give some ideas in the article, but nothing relating to him being twins. But they could expand the role and have both act and thus being kids have him able to do more screen time. Or they could easily do a split Good Ryan/ Bad Ryan storyline. Or a reveal that there were twins all along and Vought kept one and they are doing experiments with one as a controlled base. I think there’s a reason they went with twins.

The souped up Supes have obviously been around for decades so surely hasn't one of them ever been a parent before? Have abilities been passed off to progeny before or is this the first time with Homelander, Jr., and, if so, why is this time different?

r136

I think this was the first time it was passed down since the other were injected with the compound V

by Anonymousreply 13709/20/2020

r136. I think that's a difficult sell when these superheros are portrayed as fucked up taking it decades for them to cross the line of getting someone pregnant. It probably happened in the past, but like Compound V it was kept a secret by Vought. I wouldn't be surprised the whole town, where the mom is, is like a giant lab experiment where the superhero offspring is kept under observation in a so-called controlled environment.

It was established that Translucent had a son. So it seems that Homelander's spawn is the only one where the powers have been inherited. Or Homelander's powers are so special that Vought wanted to keep an eye on his kid.

This has been my favorite show on Amazon.

by Anonymousreply 14309/20/2020

This episode: we discover Frenchie is a huge Golden Girls fan. We also find out the truth about Stormfront (who it turns out is a 100 year-old Nazi).

The story didn't make a lot of sense to me. Given how easily Frenchy and Mallory have killed before, it made no sense to me they could not kill Lamplighter. I also didn't buy that Starlight would have been so callous about the Hyundai driver--that's just not her character.

If Kimiko won't fuck Frenchie, I would. Chace Crawford has the body and he's cute and all, but I find Frenchie sexy.

I'm glad this episode was light on Homelander and gave room for the other characters.

A unnecessary spinoff is in the works.

“The Boys” are going to school. Amazon has announced a spinoff of its popular satirical superhero series that the company has billed “part college show, part ‘Hunger Games’ — with all the heart, satire and raunch of ‘The Boys.'”

Per Amazon, the show will be “set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (and run by Vought International). ‘The Untitled Boys Spinoff’ is an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities.”

A friend just auditioned for Season 3, for a new character, a superhero from New Jersey.

Of course the show had to make an episode where Stargirl and Butcher bond over Hughie. Interesting episode though.

Any epo

by Anonymousreply 149Last Friday at 7:53 AM

Sorry, about that! Any episode that has Hughie passed out and unresponsive most of the time and we don’t have to hear him or see him much is a good one. This show is so good except for him as the weakest link. Maybe he’ll get recast?

by Anonymousreply 150Last Friday at 7:55 AM

I'm hoping they dose Hughie with Compound V and turn him into a baddie supe. Or whatever. Something, anything, ffs.

by Anonymousreply 151Last Friday at 8:16 AM

IIRC in the comics, all the boys took compound V to level the playing field

Did we know Frenchie was bisexual before this episode? That was a nice surprise.

by Anonymousreply 16120 hours ago

r161

I thought he said he turned tricks but that doesn't make him bi(not that I would complain.. he is oddly sexy to me)

by Anonymousreply 16219 hours ago

There were a million references this episode that Frenchie was not straight r162. He used to turn tricks for a living, he seems to be in a poly relationship with a guy and a girl, he wants to hire chicks with dicks as strippers, he tells MM to be more open minded about the penis.

The writing was very purposefully trying to make a point about his sexuality.

by Anonymousreply 16319 hours ago

OK, there are those who might disagree with me, but I stayed up all nights and binged Prime’s new show Utopia and I think this crowd would get into it as well. First off, it’s dark with lots of violence and central to the plot is a comic book sequel that everyone is after. Our heroes/anti heroes are a ragtag group of outsiders who meet at a Comic-Con convention and they’ve only known each other online. And one of the character’s from the comic book is a real life person who becomes part of the group, but is quite evil and extremely brutal.

John Cusack is in it and does of his best work in decades as a seemingly benevolent CEO, who may not be all that. The woman who wrote Gone Girl is one of the key creators adapting a Brit 2013 series. And I didn’t mention yet that it’s about a pandemic about to wipe out the US and whole world that they’re fighting to contain. The word timely is overused, but it’s like this was made for today. I’m considering starting a thread as I didn’t see one yet. Anyone else watch?

by Anonymousreply 16415 hours ago

I wouldn't mind seeing Hughie getting choked by a dick - outside of Hughie/Homelander slash fiction.

by Anonymousreply 16515 hours ago

I'm not sure I can watch something with John Cusack anymore, after finding out what an asshole bernie-bro "Male Susan Sarandon" arrogant fuckwad he is in real life.

The real question is why did Frenchie think of himself as a Rose?

What we know about him is that he is a big slut and pretty cunning. Clearly he is a Blanche!
