Episode 2

Definitely gone a different direction than the comic.  But interesting none the less.  The seven are still dirt bags.  And the Deep?  Oh man how low can one go?  Loved the Patton Oswald voice cameo.  Cracked me up.

Episode 6

Loved all the action in the mental hospital.  And one of my favorite actors back on the small screen!  Also the Stormfront reveals were cool.  A lot happened in this episode showing itís quality is continuing.

Close. I watched it this morning.  ;D

Episode 7

I almost swore off watching this anymore.  Putting current political talking points into Stormfrontís mouth is unconscionable.  If this keeps up Iíll definitely stop watching.

But the last scene in this episode will keep me on board for now.  I would have been blown away if they hadnít already ruined the episode.

Stayed away from this until the show was over as I know I may make some peeps made but...

I am not sure about the unconscionable aspect. She is a Nazi spewing Nazi stuff, not what your values are, maybe your President's, but if that hits too close ... well ... I mean ... maybe ... ya know?
 ;)

I try to never take "one" as "the whole" and I think that is what you are getting mad at, maybe? I don't see where this show is blasting Republicans nor the values they hold here in this show, at all. Yes, they are certainly pointing an armed finger at the current administration and the absurdity that surrounds it, or him more precisely  ... which in comparison to past Republican White Houses only highlight just how far this one insane semi-dictator and his administration has gone, but what was said from a character we know to be a "bad guy" shouldn't hit that close to home for you, buddy. It shouldn't make you mad. Honestly, you have to admit being conservative has little to do with what is being shown in The Boys or even what the current leader of your party, the "Mad Toupee" says. They are not remotely the same. But honestly, like I just said, it is also apparent that very few of those conservative values and/or political matters are coming from the orange dude in charge, so I don't see the connection to you.

Showcasing the similarities of a character and a guy that is totally off his rocker is not saying the entire party fell of the chair. Although some are getting really close ...  *cough* Florida Governor *cough*
 :D

And yes, I understand the desire for separation of entertainment and politics, but we have never been in this situation before. Never. And while I hope we never do again, I understand it is hard to keep such a vast (and ever growing) divide of sentiment out of your personal thinking and thus really hard to keep it out of anything we do. Just pop into any social media site and you will be flooded with people's opinion or, worse, people's opinion being shared as fact/truth.

Hopefully, either after this upcoming election or the one after that, or the one after that, or the one after that we can return to a little more civility, honesty, compassion in everything we do, regardless of who or what party is in the big house. But that will have to start exactly where this hatred has started from ... the top. We need to get back to disagreeing with respect, not name calling. We have to get back to wanting everyone in America to succeed, not just if they are red or blue. We need to get back to compassion, empathy and understanding even when we don't agree. And that last one, that is a biggie, because regardless of what anyone feels about this guy in charge, you can not with a straight face ever accuse him of having compassion or empathy. And if you can, please provide a link as I have never seen him have either. Ever.
 ;D

I really hope you saw it Jeff, but I more hope we are cool.   :) You are one of my (admittedly limited amount) Republican friends, Jeff   :) and I like having different opinions around me ;D Just ask my Trump loving, Fox News recording, Baptist Deacon Step-Dad. We "discuss" all the time
 :D :D

Just remember, Trump is not Republican. He's just saying he is. He doesn't care about your values. None of them. He goes with whatever gives him the most notice. Period.
 :)

But all that aside, haha, I hope you kept watching the show Jeff. Because if you stopped, you missed out on what is quite possibly the best last episode of any show I have ever seen. Amazing!!!

No I stuck with it and enjoyed the ending.

But on the political slant that is my point.  She wasnít spewing only Nazi stuff.  She was throwing in current political views and by association saying they are the same.  Which they are not.    Itís the misrepresentation that gets me angry and itís only there to push one political side over another and suppress debate.

This probably hits me more personally because I have a liberal friend who canít win a debate of words so he always calls republicans naziís and then acts all smug. So Iím really tired of the BS around that.

I can have a civil conversation all day long around the pros and cons of any administration but when it devolves into false name calling it gets my ire up.

But as for the Boys - I still liked the show overall even though itís taken a big divergence from the comic.  I liked the first season better than the second, except for that scene with the whale which goes down as one of my favorites.
