Homicide with the boyssssss 

 

I don’t have a way to say this elegantly, but... I don’t necessarily mind when a show / movie / game depicts violence against women. But The Boys does it SO MUCH

 

Spoiler

What motivates Hughie? His girlfriend dies horribly.

What happens to Starlight almost immediately? She’s coerced into giving oral sex and then gets spied on on the bathroom.

What does A Train do when he finds out who his girlfriend gave information about V to? He kills her and frames it as a suicide.

What does Homelander do to Stillwell when she confesses to being afraid of him? Burns a hole through her head.

Why does Butcher hate supes? He thinks one raped his wife.

 

And this isn’t violence, but Hughie spends of the show gaslighting the shit out of Starlight.

 

It goes to that particular well super often.

As bad as those events are on the show, they're WORSE in the comic.

 

Spoiler

In the comic Stralight blew the whole team and it's implied that Maeve did it too.

The Hugeie Starlight thing went on much longer in the comic than it did on the show. 

Butcher's wife WAS raped in the comic.

Mother's Milk's wife and daughter are both crackheads and make mother daughter porn (I'm not making that up)

 

They toned down a shit ton from the comics.

I know, it’s peak Garth Ennis, and... that sword cuts both ways. :p

Surprised this hasn't been posted yet...

 

 

This doesn't seem posted from any official channels i.e. Amazon Prime Video or on The Boys Twitter. How did this channel get it?

  Generally liked it, but damn, is the violence gratuitous.

It is, but FWIW that's true to the source material:

Someone should have nerfed Garth Ennis a LOOOOOOOOOONG time ago.

 

Look, the British just didn't have their hearts in it when they were genociding the Irish.

That was a Bonus Scene on Amazon X-Ray during Season 1, not a Trailer for Season 2. The scene of young Homelander that is.

Also, The Deep seems like such a pointless character.  

 

I think that's the point, he's there just to be mocked. he's the joke that everyone always said Aquaman was. He's the fish talker

What does “Stream begins” mean??? Are episodes going live this weekend? Or is this merely a “hype” session?

It's a hype stream. There will be season 2 announcements during it.

September??? This quarantine has gone too far now!!

 

We probably could have gotten Expanse season 5 before Cas Anvar got cancelled if not for the coronavirus. :(
