“I didn’t like it that much. Ever since Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad, I feel like loads of American production companies decided it makes TV shows better when there’s pointless nudity, gratuitous gore and the word c*nt every twelve seconds; The Boys is one of them.
“I get that some of it is necessary to convey the plot and the general tone – and I’m not a prude – but come on, I don’t need to see Alex Hassell’s dick for literally no reason.“
Good way to fill the word count, there. But yeah anyway, while I still stand by what I said about films and TV shows being as rude and violent as possible just because they found out they’re allowed to and it’s fashionable now, I actually quite liked The Boys after watching it enough.
Not only is is pretty fun and a huge twist on a very saturated genre, but it’s the first time I’ve ever seen superhero costumes not in a high-budget film actually look good.
That’s a good compliment in my book and listen, it’s far better than Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, which I suppose would be their equivalent.
With that, I’m quite excited to see the new season, and as actor Karl Urban has it, that’s finished filming.
In an Instagram post, the New Zealand actor wrote:
“Cut and print! That’s a wrap for Billy Butcher on season 2 of @theboystv. Massive thanks to our awesome crew n cast, love you all.
“The Boys 2 – On yer telle mid 2020 #gonefishing.”
Get more handsome with age, doesn’t he?
Previously producer Seth Rogan spoke about the upcoming season and what we can expect, saying:
“They already have more resources for the second season. They’re adding more characters, the scope of the show organically grows as the show continues. We just watched, actually, the first episode of the second season this week. It was a wonderful thing as producers. This is way better than I ever could’ve hoped it would be.
“With a show like The Boys, especially, where the tone is so unique, for the actors to be able to watch the show and to see like, ‘Oh, that’s what it is.’ It allows them to come back completely locked into it.“
Midway through 2020 on Amazon Prime video. I’ll be there.
