If you have been a fan of the superhero genre on TV, then there is something new for you to watch and no, it's not one of Netflix's Marvel shows or CW's DC Extended Universe.
Amazon Prime's The Boys is primarily a satire of the whole genre without being preachy. I will not give you a review here but I'll let you read what Twitter has to say about it.
#TheBoysTV is the best superhero tv show I've seen outside Daredevil and The Punisher. Please go watch.— Tia Fabi (@TC_Stark) July 28, 2019
I just finished #TheBoys and man.. that ending messed me up. I’m hype for S2, whenever that is. But overall, a great show and damn good deconstruction of the super hero genre. Takes the tropes of old and new and just flips them on their head. A solid 8.5/10— Darius of House Targaryen (@HeathenianKing) July 27, 2019
Okay, THE BOYS is batshit crazy and undeniably awesome! A bloody, gruesome, hilarious, and sometimes utterly terrifying show about fucked up superheroes in a fucked up world that I simply cannot get enough of.— Walt (@UberKryptonian) July 26, 2019
Give this as many seasons as possible. #TheBoys pic.twitter.com/n4YAj54cDy
Fucking thank you to #TheBoys for using the content warning ‘rape’ for forced oral sex/sexual harassment in the pilot episode. Pretty sure even a few yrs ago, that’d be listed as ‘strong sexual content’. pic.twitter.com/7ZEJm3coR5— Niki Tesla (@NikiTesla710) July 27, 2019
I’m 5 minutes into The Boys and whAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED 🤯 #TheBoys— Colin Danaher (@Whitatron) July 27, 2019
Blazed through #TheBoys and hot damn, I’m hooked. This show is so much better than it should be. Manages to be both a satire of superheroes, while also being a great commentary about them at the same time. Some real love and care went into making this one.— Paul Shirey (@arcticninjapaul) July 28, 2019
Holy shit! If Twitter is endorsing this with such excitement then it has to be that damn good.
