I thought the first episode was interesting, if not a little slow. I am now 4 episodes in and I am hooked. Really familiar tropes are turned on it’s head and it’s such a great watch. I wasn’t a fan of umbrella academy as I thought the pacing was terrible, however with ‘the boys’ I feel so far they’ve nailed it. Everything feels relevant and not filler, I can’t wait to see more! Edit: finished now, a brilliant watch throughout. The quality of this show put into context what has been wrong in other superhero shows for me. A breath of fresh air in a stagnating genre. Great job guys.

Yes, yes, yes this is what the super hero genre needs. Fresh but gritty thanks to the R+18. Hooked after 1 episode. Keep up the heroics Amazon.

Outstanding!! Funny, serious, and hilarious! Perfectly executed. Binged watched it in a day and then hated myself for doing it; next season please.

This show has probably one of the worst main characters I've ever seen. The supporting cast is not much better (except Starlight but even she was kind of soured). The most interesting character to me was Black Noir and he didn't say a word during the 1st season. The pacing and lack of world building are atrocious to a series that is only in its 1st season. It hurts me to see that after 8 hours I gained nothing from watching this. The ending is very unsatisfying. Innovative/Different doesn't mean good.

Offensive, Vile, Paranoid, Violent, Perverse, Dehumanising, Base. For some reading these adjectives, this will be a positive review, "Gotta see this, just love lurking around in the dark!" For me this is an indictment against a growing trend in art to elevate the vile and stigmatize hope or goodness. This message is all the more dangerous when marked by good performances, a powerful production, and digested by an immature audience (and I don't just mean chronologically). Good and evil have been a part of the world's framework since the beginning, but, folks, when our creative communities slander and misrepresent good as evil and frame life as inevitable moral failure, they precondition our culture to see a future without hope or choice. I won't support this project and rank it as a 3 (vile) out of 10. [Super Hero Noir]

The first impression was very positive. But after the middle of the first season, I began to notice the idiotic plot lines. And the last episode was just disgusting to me. So how so ...

Just finished watching the four first episodes. The pilot has to be one of greatest pilots I've ever seen. It has everything and I was hooked immediately. And it keeps getting better. I didn't know I needed this. It's really bold and a fresh wind for TV.

This is a show that Zack Snyder could learn a thing or two from. It deconstructs superheroes in a smart way, while not forgetting about important things like character development, story coherence or pacing. In fact, this is a show that genuinly has a lot of profound things to say about the military industrial complex, religion, power abuse, and more. It doesn’t just use fetishized costumes and pretentious dialogue to cover up for its own lack of substance. Moreover, this show is darkly funny, original and twisted. Every scene with The Deep in the second half of the season is pure comedic gold. They could still improve the show by fleshing out some of the characters in Karl Urban’s crew, because I didn’t think all of them were interesting. Also, the action scenes are straight up bad, but that’s in no way a dealbreaker, because the show isn’t interested in them. 8/10

I binge watched the series all at once, and have lots of thoughts. The anti-superhero trope is strong lately, like 'Umbrella Academy', and 'Brightburn', which I generally enjoy. I'm not sure 'enjoy' is the word I'd use to describe this show though. The main "superheroes" (called 'Supes') are direct evil twins to Superman/Captain America, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, etc. I would argue that there are NO superheros in this show, just super-villains. The vigilantes trying to expose and destroy the Supes are known as 'The Boys', thus the show's title. But this show series has some triggering issues: 1) The show is based on a comic book series, but with widely varying character development, origin stories, and plots. If you can believe it, the show is MUCH LESS violent and darkly twisted than the comics. And yet still, this is a very violent and visually gory show. Like Robert Rodriguez/ Quentin Tarantino level. Be forewarned. 2) There's some overt plot lines along misogyny. Most of the women characters are victimized, assaulted, exploited, and otherwise manipulated, included the Supes. There's several rape references - and it is implied that the male Supes are repeat offenders. There is 1 woman vigilante of the Boys, who is actually the physically strongest of the group, but is mute and is only known as 'The Female', even after her name is revealed as 'Kimiko'. And more obviously, though she is a woman part of the team, they are still known as, and the show is still called, "The Boys". 3) There are also overt plot lines along homophobia - literally "fear of being gay". Supe 'Ezekiel' is an evangelist described as "Pray the gay away" who secretly engages in sex with men at a supe underground sex dungeon, and the video footage of his exploits is used to blackmail him. The Senator unknowingly has sex with the supe "Doppelganger" who turns into an obese man during coitus and takes pics, which is used to blackmail him. And supe Queen Maeve is tormented by feeling forced into the closet, unable to reveal her queer sexuality lest she be ostracized from The Seven. Sigh. The more I think about it, and the more I learn about the source material, the less I like this show. Meh.

What a waste of good actors (and of my time). Although a quite good idea the execution is simply boring.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
