    Thought Id start a season 2 thread to keep the clutter out of the Season 1 thread for those that haven't watched it yet.

    Im one episode in and think they're off to a great start. We've already seen more of Black Noir than we did almost the whole first season.

    I was only able to get halfway through the 1st episode, but damn it looks like they're upping the ante on the gore this season. Giancarlo Esposito is great in whatever he does, but I'm wondering if he's getting tired of playing the cold, calculating, menacing, super-intelligent big bad.

    I watched all three episodes last night. Patton Oswalt's guest role in the second episode was unique.

    Stormfront is very different than in the comics - at first, I wasn't sure about the way they were showing her, but after the third episode, well, that's more like the Stormfront from the comics. I'm not trying to be a purist and say the show has to be the same as the comics, but Stormfront was one of the more evil characters from the comics and we don't really see that in the TV version until the third episode.

    I wish they had dropped all 8 episodes at once instead of making us wait. Of the 3 they did drop, the first 2 were slow, especially with all Deep-related stuff. At least things finally got going in the third one.

    The thing with the whale was almost as funny as the flying dolphin from season 1.

    There is so much going on in the comics you would need at least Game of Thrones kind of money. I love the Boys and have read 10% of the comics. There is a huge amount of storylines.

    I finishes the first three episodes. There had better be some a monumentally great payoff for the incredibly mind numbing, boring scenes involving The Deep. I wish he and Klaus from The Umbrella Academy could get their own spinoff show together so I could avoid both of them.

    Giancarlo Esposito is like bacon or extra cheese - he makes everything better.

    Even though I knew Homelander was going to push his kid off the roof and the kid would go splat, I still laughed.

    I thought Homelander was evil. Stormfront is eeevil. I hope Kimiko kills the crap out of her.

    Loving it so far, curious though that the rating on AP is just 2 1/2 stars.

    The rating is bad only because of edgelords who are voicing their displeasure via reviews that it's not all released at once.

    Personally I like being forcibly limited to a week at a time at this point. I would already be done with them as I have no self control under current conditions. Now I have something else to look forward to each weekend :)

    Yes in this case I'll be all edgy and downvote a damn good show just because I can't binge watch it ten at once.

    Downvote amazon prime video in general or cancel your membership instead.

    I wouldn’t give a bad review because of it, but not releasing the whole season sucks.

    To me, releasing it all at once hampers my enjoyment. I like to take my time and I inevitably get exposed to spoliers if I don't completely sequester myself from most corners of the internet/real life. Heck, I waited a day or two for new episodes of "The Mandalorian" and most of those got totally spoiled...

    But I get wanting it all at once too. If I was a content provider, I'd certainly prolong the release schedule for my most popular shows.

    I've rather enjoyed the "after shows" Amazon has for this season.
    Except the host, she's a bit grating.

    I'm not sure I understand why (how?) Raynor was killed. It seemed like she was going to tell the Boys something about the super terrorists (sorry---super villains) when she was killed by a supe.

    The Boys already knew that Vought was responsible for the super villains (though they probably believed that it was sanctioned at the top). So what could she have been about to tell them that warranted her execution? And, more to the point, if it were Vought that killed her, why didn't they just kill Butcher instead?

    It's a mystery.

    I think the mystery is by who(m). We haven't seen anyone with a power that works like that that I can think of.
