This fortnight, Nick and Alastair watch the entire first season of Amazon’s superviolent superhero supersatire The Boys!
But first, Nick’s started watching premium computer show Halt & Catch Fire, while Alastair’s gone to see new crime movie Hustlers.
And then the boys crack into The Boys (9:57) with surprisingly few spoilers, and a lot of thoughts from Nick about how it compares to the original comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. As well as some not-too-detailed discussion of the sexual assault aspects of the storyline, just so you’re aware.
Finally, this fortnight’s big question: Is it realistic to portray superheroes realistically? (33:04) Weirdly, they manage to cram a minor storyline spoiler for the latter half of The Boys season 1 into this. Be warned.
