Gurlfriend, season 3 aired last year and season 4 does not have a trailer yet. But yes, it starts June 13th, so you got that part right, at least.

I'll be abroad when it's released, but will watch it when i get back from the UK.

Antony Starr is fantastic as Homelander, but he is too evil to live. This season has to be the end of him.

OOPS! I meant season 4. Thank you for the correct info R1!

I'm hanging out for this new season. It's been a long time coming.

Here's a trailer for season 4:

I had lost interest in the series, and might have only seen the first couple of episodes of Season Three (and I'm not even sure of that - I'd have to review 'em to be certain). I'd have to catch up before moving on to Season Four.

I’m skipping because I’m sick of Homelander’s ugly ass always winning. He should’ve got his ass whipped by Maeve and Patriot far worse than he did. Plus, if you read the comic series, they took away an opportunity for a major twist that would have everybody talking.

I wish TPTB would stop letting that ugly ass pothead Seth Rogan adapt shit. He totally fucked up Preacher and I will always despise him for that.

r5 That's a teaser mislabelled as a trailer by a third party, which happens all the time. When they drop the full trailer, you'll know, because Reddit will explode.

Sorry everybody.

Yes it's pretty good too R9. Not as good as The Boys but close. It's called Gen V.

I only watched a few episodes of GEN V. It wasn't for me. To be fair, I kept comparing it to The Boys and I find The Boys to be the superior show.

Loved the first season, liked the second, but the third season lost me. It became the thing that the first seasons were satirizing - just another superhero series.

by Anonymousreply 19May 14, 2024 2:32 PM

If Homelander doesn't lose this season, I'm done with this show. His constantly winning is getting tiring and shows a lack of imagination.

Just finished the first episode. They gave Frenchie a boyfriend, finally! Flirtation, a blessing from Kimiko, first kiss, and first fuck in the same episode, they are wasting no time.

Tomer Capone remains as beautiful as ever.

I like that they didn't delve into Vought recasting Black Noir so that the public wouldn't know he was dead. We just get a new Black Noir (still played by the actor who previously inhabited the costume) who is a dedicated actor. He's hilarious.

We get that self-dividing man rimming himself, but no in-depth sex scene with Frenchie and Colin. It's established Frenchie's into bdsm, we need to see it.

by Anonymousreply 24June 14, 2024 5:55 PM

Yeah, Black Noir speaking for the first time and going "yo, what the fuck was that?" cracked me up. I had no idea it was the same actor, that's pretty cool.

They gave Frenchie a romantic interest, but then immediately added the backstory of him killing Colin's family. It's like the showrunners going "guys, we know this is a gay couple, but fear not, they're doomed and will be done by the season's end, so don't turn off your TVs just yet!"

The skating rink bloodfest was very entertaining, those ice skates are lethal!

Chace Crawford's biceps looked so much nicer in the first season when there was just one seductive vein running down his arm. Now there are more veins than muscles, total overkill. Also, sis eye area is completely free of wrinkles, I wonder what his secret is.

The slaughter on ice was a little over the top... I mean, I can imagine one or two accidents after the initial zap, but it kept going and going... it got kind of ridiculous.

Anyone know who played one of the "sacrifices"? The guy with glasses who was the last to die... the actor looked really familiar but I couldn't place him and I can't find him online...

Canadian actor Matthew Gorman. He hasn't been in much, you're probably confusing him with someone else.

I just started watching season 4 tonight! I love this show. Very political, violent, graphic, tight and hilarious.

by Anonymousreply 32June 16, 2024 12:59 PM

The first three episodes of season four were good, not great. The political satire of this show has never been that deep, but with the first three episodes it was obvious to the point of being obnoxious. Still, I'm interested to see where the rest of the season goes. Black Noir suddenly speaking was hilarious.

by Anonymousreply 33June 19, 2024 3:35 PM

Satire is more obvious this season because the showrunner got annoyed that Homelander became an aspirational figure for MAGAcels. You really need to hit those fuckers over the head that you're making fun of THEM, otherwise they won't get it.

R33 Black Noir was killed in the finale of season three. Vought covered it up and hired an actor to play him. The reason he’s speaking now is because it isn’t him.

by Anonymousreply 35June 19, 2024 4:08 PM

I love that they’re pissing off the Maga crowd now. They’re so annoyed that they’re review bombing the show.

I was so happy (and shocked) to see Frenchie go gay, that was a nice surprise. They are a really hot couple, too bad they’re doomed. I’ll enjoy them while they last.

by Anonymousreply 36June 19, 2024 4:12 PM

I got gay vibes from Frenchie in the very the first episode. But yes, it's a nice surprise they gave him a boyfriend, gay stuff has mainly been used for comedic purposes up to this point (the MAGA pastor and the dick miniature guy). Speaking of...

They used rimming as this huge punchline, expecting people to be grossed out. But some of us engage in that activity on a near-daily basis? I don't know, it just hit weird, especially during Pride month.

by Anonymousreply 37June 19, 2024 4:33 PM

The rimming punchline is that it's a guy who can replicate himself having a Human Centipede moment with himself. Then the pink eye that hobbled him was the payoff.

by Anonymousreply 38June 19, 2024 5:18 PM

I love that the showrunners hated Homelander becoming a rightwing hero and now just punch people in the face with the message. The Margie Pipebomb Greene character and Sister Sage are nice additions. I'm also worried for the octopus

The octopus seems clingy R39.

by Anonymousreply 40June 20, 2024 1:15 PM

I had no idea the octopus was voiced by Tilda!

Did you all clock the distinctly Gal Gadot-looking Hyperion in the first episode? Special powers: super intuition, divine femininity, fireproof hair. Tee hee.

I've never understood the appeal of figure skating, but I get it now – it's all about the thrill of knowing a shocking decapitation might happen at any given moment.

by Anonymousreply 43June 20, 2024 1:31 PM

If the season doesn't end with some kind of check on Homelander's powers, then that's just bad writing. If your villain is all-powerful and has no weaknesses, there's no drama. And unless you're going for a downer ending with the villain winning, your explanation for how he gets defeated won't make any sense.

Erin Moriarty's face in some shots of episode four was ... strange looking. It's smooth to the point of looking like a mask.

Firecracker being exposed as a pedo and using that as a talking point for Christianity was so disgustingly real. That's exactly what fundie assholes would do to justify their evil.

by Anonymousreply 44June 20, 2024 4:25 PM

Next season is going to be the last, so I can't imagine they "defeat" Homelander this season. That sorta has to be the climax and end game of the series, no?

by Anonymousreply 45June 20, 2024 5:55 PM

I think Erin looks way better and seems to have gained a tiny bit of weight. Poor girl, I can't imagine getting plastic surgery and it going so wrong. Buccal fat removal is a crime 99% of the time altho my cousin got it done in the 80s and looks great.

That head-exploding hoe is the one who'll die this season, I think. She seems pretty invincible to me right now. Then Homelander next season.

If Trump wins, the writers might do a scathing indictment of Homelander, as a political statement against Republicans and MAGATS.

Maybe something like an "evil has triumphed" type of political statement.

Speculation: Butcher's cancer worm is sentient and has a symbiotic relationship with him, similar to Venom. The Becca ghost is the worm talking to him. Butcher fights Homelander for Ryan, and during the fight, Ryan turns on Homelander. They fight and Homelander kills Ryan, but not before Ryan mortally wounds him.

Meanwhile, Sage's master plan falls apart right as it's about to come to fruition because Deep has lobotomized her to have sex with her. Homelander lasers her and Firecracker, not having any use for them any longer.

by Anonymousreply 50June 21, 2024 4:37 PM

I fully expect The Deep to accidentally kill Sage by cocking up her lobotomy.

Surprised to read that Valorie Curry (Firecracker) is a lesbian (after coming out as pansexual).

I first saw her in Fox's The Following where her character was in a threesome with Nico Tortorella and Adan Canto.

Why didn't Firecracker use her powers – puny as they are – when Starlight was beating her up?

by Anonymousreply 52June 21, 2024 4:56 PM

They all have to learn how to use and control their powers, so maybe since Firecracker is so new, she didn't have complete control to marshall up her powers.

by Anonymousreply 53June 21, 2024 4:58 PM

So following the lead of Doctor Who and Star Wars we get a franchise with a show runner who hates his audience so much he is willing to ruin his own show to punish them. Isn't that special.

I wonder what is Hughie's mom's endgame. I knew she wasn't there just so the series could delve into Hughie's family life.

R52, because Firecracker's agenda was served by getting Starlight beating her up on camera.

by Anonymousreply 56June 21, 2024 5:14 PM

The sound of the coffee pouring in the machine was a nice touch. I feel like mom was always a Vought (or maybe US federal) agent of some type, and might've been in the Middle East doing shady special activities when she left them in the 2000s. I hope she doesn't just turn out to be dumb, since I'm getting some nice sinister vibes.
