CM Podcast 218 – The Boys (TV Show 2019)

Last week, we reviewed the 1st story arc to Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic: The Boys. This week we are reviewing the Amazon Prime version of the TV Show that launched on 7/26/19.

The first season is 8 episodes long and we are talking about the first 3 episodes because that is all that we were able to watch so far. We will be watching the rest of the series because we like it so much.

The Seven

In the podcast, we talk about how the show introduces the Boys and The Seven differently than the comic. The way that Butcher (leader of the Boys) and Homelander (leader of the Seven) behave in the show and the comic are much different. This is not a bad thing. Things change when translating written work to a TV series.

Some things are different but somethings do remain the same like how Butcher finds out about Hughie and how Starlight is introduced to The Seven. If you are a fan of the comic, then I you will like the show.

At the end of the podcast, we talk about Carl Urban’s English accent and how he uses some of the Cockney Rhyming Slang. Then I put Jon to a test and see if he can decipher a Cockney Rhyming Slang sentence I put together.

Enjoy,

Jim

Jon and I talk about the first episode: our first impressions, the new characters and then end the podcast with our thoughts on what will happen during the rest of the season based on the comic.  Guess what?  THERE ARE SPOILERS IN THIS PODCAST!  If you have listen to previous podcasts, you know we talk about everything to listener be aware.

One of the topics of discussion is the selection of Jody on the show.  Here is a comparison of the comic vs the show:

Now, Jon is a fan of the guy who they cast.  I on the other hand am not a fan (but maybe I will change my mind by the end of the season).  Listen to the podcast to hear my reasons.

I’ll tell you what I am a fan of…the new print ads for the show.

These are hilarious.

As always, Jon and I have a great discussion on the show and try to keep it entertaining.

Your comics pal,

Jim
