Maybe it is just me but I am finding all...or the majority of the characters are very very whiney. I can't stand Hughie God he is the whiniest

So I’m finally catching up on The Boys and I’m watching Jeremy’s video after I finish each episode. And I agree that this season just sorta feels, I don’t know like a nothing season. Don’t get me wrong; there’s a lot going on but at the same time nothing is? And I kinda think it works perfectly. I mean you take it from Vought’s perception. They’ve just been hit with two big blows, and they’re in damage control. And they’re not really doing much, just tryna act like business is usual until they can properly get on top of it. I may be wrong, but I’d say these next three episodes (6, 7 and 8) will ramp up and we’ll get that feeling we did in season 1. I’m hoping so anyway 🤷‍♂️ Edit: Just cause I feel like I overcomplicated my comment; I mean I feel like all the chips are in place now. Like we just watched a very long winded set up and shit will finally hit the fan in the best way

I'm only this far into the show and it's definitely hard to see where it's going. I'm also thrown by how easily the boys and Starlight walk around freely. They're wanted by the a company with better servailance than the government, text with a member of the 7 who is chipped, but everyone basically goes where they want when they want no problem. Weird

Man... I thought the person exploding heads was going to be Vought... I thought that would have been a great plot twist... leaving a great threat alive... a bigger threat being Vought Why would he make his lover immortal... but not himself I was disappointed in it not being him

Idk I think season 2 is pretty great! Season one was all about shock factor and it being different and making fun of comic book movies and season 2 is actually progressing when it comes to story! What I’m saying is I love Jeremy’s reviews, but can’t agree with you on this review!

I agree. I thought Season 2 was pretty aimless compared to the first season. Character motivations didn’t make a lot of sense in the second season, either. I think it finished strong, though. That said, I still love the show and looking forward to Season 3.

I don't like how its not following the excellent source material big time. So many changes and things sped up but the TV show is not bad. I am worried about the showrunners trying to do TOO MUCH current triggering America stuff vs just creating good stories.

Watching episodes 7 and 8 tomorrow, but I like the idea of them having to remove a bunch of Homelander's scenes from Dawn of the 7 bc of the controversy.. if they think about it. But yeah, there does seem to be an issue with the negotiation Billy tried. We'll see what happens.

My problem with Vought believing billy's bluff is: if he has a trumph card why was he going to fight Black Noir (a losing battle) alone 20 seconds before? It seems like a horrible bluff that no reasonable person would believe

They wont kill butchers wife because they dont want the kid to grow up without a mom, the whole point of it is to raise him different that homelander so he doesnt grow up nuts

I mean not all humanity is united , yeah sure there is evidence that homelander is killing dudes left and right but when has evidence ever stopped people from believing? Flat earthers exist, climate change deniers are a thing, we have atheists and god fearing people. So I think the pace is believable, the one thing that urked me as an ex machina though was lady liberty and how Malory knew it was somehow ginna help them.

I agree, watched this episode last night and was so disappointed. Feels like nothing has happened this season, I was looking forward to Homelander going on a killing spree on the crowd that they'd teased, thought things would finally go wild, but it was only a fantasy. so disappointing.

The Push Back with Godordarwin
I don't want this to be long but I have 3 points to make in agreement of this review& it could get "wordy". 1. Three of the plot points from season 1 have come to light and until jj said it I didn't even notice how it removed the tension. If this is how it would play out in reality that's fine but I don't feel it was replaced with anything as compelling. 2. The ongoing imminent threat of WWHD (what would Homelander do?) is severely undermined by Ep 5. If the only character looking over Starlight's shoulder for the entirety of the "road trip" of Ep 4, that's not great season 2 writing. That's just transference from good season 1 writing. 3. Lastly part of the push & pull for me from season 1 was how can the Boys have compelling conflict against Supes. They managed to pull it off but so far in season 2 there's been 2 confrontations between Boys & Supes, the first one they really don't explain how they escaped & the second one as Jeremy says , felt contrived & nonsensical. I haven't watched Ep 6 yet but so far I do agree that this season isn't hitting me as well as season 1.

I think the fact that the eps come out weekly is working against this season. It should’ve been done the same as season one, all eps dropped at once. Now we’re going ep by ep and Jeremy is having to comment on an incomplete story instead of reviewing the season as a whole. I must state that I’m not against Jeremy all opinions are valid, I love his stuff, so entertaining regardless 😊 I’m actually saying it’s actually almost unfair on him because of what I mentioned.

In some ways I agree it's weak and others it's compelling. I agree that the side quest of Komiko and Frenchy is absolutely useless but I like the mystery behind Storefront because there's something wierd going on with her character. At first I thought that older lady in the picture with her (probably her mother of grandmother) was Liberty but apparently not. Idk shy but I'm sorting to like A-train's character a lot. I think he's going to have a redemption arc but we will see. I think Maeve recruiting the Deep is also going to be very interesting.

Honestly, after watching episode five I feel the exact opposite. I felt like the character interactions were interesting and the tension palpable. And the action scenes we got were amazing. However, I will admit I’m not sure where the story is going with Frenchie and Kimiko. Also Maeve’s only personality trait this season seems to be her sexuality. At least until the end of this episode where she asks for the Deep’s help. Overall, I feel like things are coming together.

There are a lot of inconsistencies. like everyone knows up to a certain point, if there are too many people in part of a conspiracy, the conspiracy will come out. How do you have so many super heroes running around with so many parents giving consent then not have it come out? it would of made so much more senes if vaught did so without consent to babies with genetic make up suitable for compound v or something

The thing with Frenchie and the Female is actually a plot line in comics if i recall. Its been a hot minute since I red the comics.
LOKITYZ 25 dagar sedan
There are a lot of conveniences to move the plot forward for this season IMHO. They also spend a lot of time on uninteresting points. One of the biggest examples is how easy it was for Starlight to break into Stormfront's laptop. That's borderline retarded considering how tech savvy she's supposed to be. Your child's name as your password. And regarding uninteresting points, the whole Collective Church and The Deep thing isn't really well done. And Homelander is starting to get away with shit too easily at some points, just to make him more menacing. There are some clear weaknesses here and there for me, but overall still enjoyable and intriguing....

I don't think this season is as weak as you believe. You brought me around on Lucifer but not here. I do think you are right and they should have released it all at the same time. I didn't start watching it until after episode six dropped. "Iceman" being "Pyro" I'm not so sure about. It conflicts me. I'm interested on where the exploding heads gal is headed and what she is going to do. Maybe the head of the corporations will have as dynamite death as he did in Breakin' Bad?

So, there's several problems with The Boys. Not as many as Preacher had, but still. One of the main problems is that there's no faith in the source material. Whether it's the times or the directors trying to do their own thing, they threw away too many plot points in the first season, and broke even further from the comics. If they'd tried to follow the comics, or have a coherent plot instead random different stories, this could go for at least six seasons. But again, they decide to blow their main load, make everyone weirdly sympathetic instead of straight up assholes.. Well, still watchable.

Your occams razor statement about how a joke is taken more serious than a murder is just bad writing. I believe they are portraying how someone will get "canceled", lose their career, get black listed ect these days for something they said a long time ago (usually without context), and how the insane killings of chiraq, LA, N. Y, or the celeb killing someone or a family in a DUI is swept over.

I agree totally about the consistency! I'll add that The Boys are wanted fugitives yet you see them walking around cities/ towns in broad daylight & they're not even trying to hide at all! I also agree They don't know what to do with some characters, as for Frenchie just following Kimiko is just getting annoying. After the exposure of Compound V, Vought should be having a PR nightmare, worst still there's footage of HL lasering some dude. I agree, the world isn't consistent

3:50 Most of Jeremy’s complaints can be summed up with his naïvety to how the real world is. He keeps saying the show lacks common sense in things, because he expects better of our world than our world actually is. Biggest example was his gripe about Homelander doing well after killing an innocent and Vought doing well after Compound V. Remember when Wells Fargo admitted like a million customers’ bank accounts were compromised and their employees had been stealing money out of said accounts and laundering it? Lmao how many of you still have Wells Fargo accounts? Quite a lot. The bank is simply too big to stand against. Look at the stock pricing of it. They’re not doing any worse than any other bank now. Ezra Miller choke slammed a woman and now his movie is _finally_ being made. Amber Heard cut off her husband’s finger, shit in his bed, committed perjury against him, and ruined his career. Guess who’s still starring in Aquaman 2? Even Jason Mamoa, who I thought was a good man...try to find a single instance where he addressed that. You won’t. His costar cut a man’s finger off and lied about abuse, and he hasn’t said a damn thing about it. Jason Mamoa is as beloved as ever. Jeremy, you’re just naïve to the world and are upset the show is showing you the truth. That’s really what your biggest criticisms boil down to. Cobra Kai is better for you because it’s easier to wrap your head around. It’s a small story about 2 dojos. It’s not the truth of Big Industry.

I heard the same criticisms about S2 you made before I binge the whole show up to current. Honestly, S2 isn't as tightly written or concise, but it's still fantastic to me. S1 feels like almost a complete story where they didn't know if they'd get a second season or not. They had to hit the major beats at a breakneck pace. But S2 feels like they know they're getting a Season 3. They're taking their time with plot threads and character development they can pay off later, not necessarily this season.

I think you’re missing the point of the fact that large corporations like Vought are untouchable to PR scandals. In real life if something like compound V leaking would happen it’d be forgotten by next week. We think the public will care but we don’t end up taking action if it bothers convenance.

In which planet do you live? Corporations have done awful shit, yet they remain unscathed: pharma, oil, tobacco.... why would Vought be any different? Also, Homelander killed a civilian ON A FOREIGN COUNTRY!, That has happened multiple times with the military, yet nobody in America seem to care much about it... hence 9 points!

they won't kill his wife because they want the kid to grow up and not be a psycho, hopefully even hate homelander and eventually kill him. best case scenario is that when the kid is adult, homelander kills his mom and he kills homelander which would make him easy to control. it's like in the comics and what black noir ends up doing. btw i like how they are taking things, you said what you said because you didn't read the comics. they did exactly what you said you were hoping they would do with the tension but it was a shitshow in then end. most people who have read the ending hated it.
