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
