Jensen Ackles from Supernatural is joining the cast for next season (3).

If you've never seen Supernatural, Eric Kripke, who created and is showrunner of this series, was also the creator and showrunner for the 1st 5 seasons of Supernatural.

Jensen is going to kill in this. Too bad we have to wait for season 3 to see it.

I'm so in! Especially for more of Homelander's slicing and dicing. Have they ever made Superman's powers look so gruesome? I guess that's really not the brand. Starting a rewatch binge of S1 in anticipation.

Amazon tends to add stuff the night before. So be on the look out.

Re: The Boys (Amazon) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 9/4/20

I saw 2 of the 3 last night. The opening episode with the funeral of Translucent was great. And great to see Giancarlo Esposito back. Amazing that he's on 4 high profile shows right now.

and great way to bring back Billy in episode 2.

For those unaware, there is an After Show hosted by Aisha Tyler. It's broken up episode by episode. So you can watch the episode that coincides with the one you finished.

I loved when she said in the 1st episode at the very end.....Normally we would give you a sneak peak of episode 2, but the episode is already out. Go fucking watch it!! Esposito, Quaid and Malcolm Barett were the guests in the 1st episode. And it's no holds barred, they do curse in it. And it's not done on Zoom. Tyler is in the studio, but the guests are in a different room.

I was looking forward to watching this but I could only make it through half the second episode before I grew weary of actors lecturing me with dopey cliches about how awful America is instead of, oh I don't know, actually discussing the show?

On the other hand, really enjoyed the first three episodes.

Great start to the season! But, man, episode 3 is pretty fucking grim.

When I was in Junior High in the mid-80s, I remember we had a Suicide Awareness lesson (part of a national campaign?) which featured that Billy Joel video. As soon as Hughie started listening to the song in episode 2, I knew he was really struggling.

Also in episode 2, I thought I recognized the voice of The Deep's
Spoiler:
gills, and he confirmed it on twitter: Patton Oswalt. That scene had me rolling with laughter, especially when they broke out in song.



This show is fucking nuts.

Re: The Boys (Amazon) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 9/4/20

I saw 1 review headline before I watched and it was like "bloated second season loses its mofo" or some shit like that so I was a little nervous but I thought the first 3 episodes were not bloated but crammed with just awesomeness. And I am not a violence/gore guy and there is a LOT. Such an awesome show. I have a theory:
Spoiler:
Fring (fucked if I remember this characters name) is actually a SUPE, maybe one of the first supes and Homelander is in for a little surprise when he goes all laser eyes on him.

Theory 2: Hughie some how is going to take Compound V this season


Just a completely awesome show. And each episode is a full hour hopefull WoT is the same.
