Screener Squad: The Boys – Season 1

The Boys Season One review


Considering how wildly violent, shocking, and anti-establishment (on, like, EVERY level) comics writer Garth Ennis’s output has been, it’s really surprising that he has TWO television show adaptations of his work on the air. The second (after Preacher) is The Boys, now streaming on Amazon Prime. It follows Hughie, a young man whose girlfriend is turned instantly into a blood mist when Flash-analogue A-Train runs straight through her. He ends up teaming with the very angry Billy Butcher to start teaching the superheroes of their world a much-needed lesson, even if that means killing them all. Chris, Johnny Neill, Kim, and Lara were the crew on this review. Check out what they had to say about The Boys right here.
