The Boys

For someone who more or less doesn’t give a solitary flying fuck about superhero properties, The Boys was incredibly captivating.  Almost an extension of where Mystery Men left off – this fairly cynical series featured superheroes-as-antiheroes with normal hopes, dreams, and foibles, alongside a toxic capitalist culture driving the idealism agenda, and being pursued by a damaged outsider with baggage.  It portrayed much more complex if still roughly 2-dimensional characters in the superhero roles, and I’d definitely be keen to see where the story goes. 👍👍
