    Oh, for hotness, for SURE. I mean, that isn't even close :) Starlight's a better character, though.


    I think this was exactly what Homelander wanted and planned when he brought the baby downstairs.

    Man, is this a fantastic show! I giggled my ass off in the 1st episode, but it turned out not just to be a fun, dark show; it also has heart. Great stuff.

    And the Deep gets gill raped. Classic! [\spoiler]

    Well, it was hilarious, for one. And it was classic karma.

    Just finished it last night. This show is good. Homelander is an evil POS. Excited to see where they go in season two.

    The season 2 trailer/teaser is out. All it says about a release date is it's coming in 2020.

    Fair warning, this is one of the goriest trailers I've seen.

    Just binged this recently. Great show.

    Can't wait for Season 2 and cannot believe how different Antony Starr looks and sounds.

    What a transformation.

    I started watching Banshee because of The Boys. I'm kind of glad I didn't make it very far before because no being familiar with him at all helped make Homelander an even bigger a-hole.

    I just hope I didn't ruin Banshee now because I'll be seeing him as Homelander in it. I'm only 2 episodes into Banshee and I like it but this is also as far as I made it live when it started years ago.

    For anyone interested, Banshee is available OnDemand from Cinemax.

    It's on Amazon Prime now, too. I have seen it already, but am giving it a rewatch.

    The first image of Stormfront has been released. She'll be a primary villain in season 2. Stormfront was a guy in the comics but they've switched that up for the show. Her powers are similar to Homelanders, she's at least on his level but she's also a nazi. She'll be played by Aya Cash, who was in the FX series "You're The Worst". I enjoyed her in that, hopefully she kills it here as well.

    Here's a link to the piece from EW that released the image.

    There will be a panel on March 15th with Eric Kripke and the cast at PaleyFest in LA. Hopefully they'll announce a release date for season 2. I think with official releases and panels like that, we shouldn't have to wait that much longer for next season. The first season was released in July and there's a chance they don't drop season 2 before July this year but I hope we get it in May or June.

    I'm a little surprised that it's kept my interest like it has because I was experiencing some real superhero fatigue before season 1 came out but this show basically wiped that out. I've been anxious for season 2 ever since I finished the first season.

    Here's some good news regarding The Boys. It has been renewed for a 3rd season prior to it's 2nd season premiere. They had season 2 picked up just before season 1 aired also but season 1 had the benefit of showing some early episodes to fans at Comic Con and South By SouthWest so they were able to gauge fan interest early on. Of course season 1 was incredible and knowing they have 2 more seasons on the way is good.

    Still no word on the release date for season 2 but the episode names have leaked online at this point. Season 1 debuted in mid-July but the way they've hyped season 2 made it seem like it wouldn't be a full year wait for this season but it looks like it'll be close to a full year wait at this point.
