The boys discussion.
« on: August 20, 2019, 04:07:23 pm »
Anyone watch the amazon show called "the boys".  I binge watched whole season in pretty much 24 hours.

It's great.  Only shows that I have binged like that are game of thrones and breaking bad.

Bill Butcher is played by Karl Urban who also plays McCoy in the new Star Trek movies:

He is total badazz and my favorite character.  He should win some awards.

Elizabeth Shue should have been a Hollywood icon.  She is such a good actress.

It blows the marvel universe out of the water, IMO.  Marvel is made for kids.  This is made for adults.  It has plot twists ... it is funny ... it's got a great storyline.  In "The Boys" the super heroes while having powers are still like real humans in the sense that they have flaws and issues they struggle with, just like real people do.  They are flawed humans with this immense power and this dynamic allows the writers to do a lot more with the super hero characters than marvel ever could.  In marvel they are all like Mickey Mouse wholesome and perfect beings with nothing but goodness.  I've seen almost every marvel movie made and while I enjoyed them, I didn't enjoy any of the marvel movies as much as this series.

Here's the official trailer for it and it has some teasers, but I recommend skipping the trailer and just watching it.  The official trailer reveals too much I think.

I am in withdrawal after binging and looking for something else to watch that is as good as that, but I think I'll have to wait for season 2.

I think Billy is my favorite character cause he kinda talks like me, except I have a Chicago accent.

And just like that I got banned from r/theboys cause some Muslim said they felt bad that muslims were portrayed as terrorists in the series.  I asked if they wanted the show to have Eskimo and Aborigine terrorists, lmfao, and it went all down hill from there. Haha.

A Pakistani was calling for white genocide cause I said no to their demands that we adopt them like shelter pets cause of climate change.

The Pakistani who called for white genocide deleted all their posts and then had me banned. I didn't call for genocide of anyone.  If I want Pakistanis to suffer horribly, I don't have to wish for genocide ... I just just have to let them govern themselves.  I don't have to lift a finger or wish anything upon them.

The truth is outlawed.
