Great first 3 episodes! I did have a glitch, from Amazon's side, where the first 2 episodes only played in HD and the 3rd episode played in full HDR. Hopefully it will get fixed.

Rewatched the last Season 1 episode where Homelander slices up Syrian civilians, then started in on the new stuff. This show is still awesome and hasn't lost a step!

Just finished episode 3. It was IMO the best of the 3. Crazy shit all around. The whale scene. :lol: and then Stormfront going on that killing rampage in pursuit of Kumiko's brother. 1st we think she's some tough badass bitch. Then it turns out, she's a psychotic racist. :lol:

The After Show Inside the Boys is great. It's funny and let's everyone including Aisha Tyler talk very loosely no holds barred uncensored. I liked Antony, Aya and Chace in that episode. They were very funny together.

The episode 3 After show was really fun too. Karen Fukuhara is cute and very charming. And the writer of episode 3 did talk about the episode and how it delved into racism, which is true and has political ramifications in our society.

Overall, very pleased so far. Looking forward to next week.

For the CEO of Vought to be so comfortable dressing down Homelander makes me think they must have some sort of counter to supers. It only makes sense they would have a counter. If I develop a superhero formula, I would make damn sure that I had an antidote or a suppressant in case the people taking the drug went rogue. I wonder if we’ll see something like that if Homelander or Stormfront start actively trying to destroy Vought.

As much as I enjoy this show I guess I will have to be the contrarian here. Way too much time spent with fish boy to set up the whale scene. Maybe it is because I can't stand the character. To me it started a bit slow. But it is still better than most shows. I don't like that I have to wait each week now. But I can understand why they are doing it.

Yeah he was way to comfortable taking Homelander down a few pegs there could be something to that.

I know the original comic did have a countermeasure for Homelander (look it up if you want to find out more), but I suspect the series is not going in that direction. However I do think Vought has something secret to counter The Seven so probably another drug that counters Compound V (they are *primarily* a pharmaceutical company afterall) or maybe a secret Supe whose power is the ability to suppress any other Supe's powers.

I still want to know whats going on with Homelander's face. Specifically, the left cheek/jawline.

He's got two or three unnatural looking lumps in his cheeks, almost like he's eating, but they're permanent. And more. There's definitely something going on with his face, maybe an old accident & reconstructive surgery? Dunno. He's pretty great in the role.

With Jenson Ackles playing a WW2-era supe in S3, he could be in just one backstory scene, so don't get too excited.

I didn't think it was a real thing in S1. They definitely make a deal out of it this year in the first episode, if only to tweak our noses.

Obvious? Stormfronts do some damage and shake things up but I wouldn't imagine RACIST would be included. Out here in the midwest we get stormfronts all the time. Never knew one to be racist.

Stormfront is considered a white supremacist group. The link is to the Southern Poverty Law Center's description of them

I do agree with you about the Deep. I am not too fond of his storyline so far, but maybe this Scientology shit they’re pushing pays off later.

I'm finding the character more sympathetic than I expected. He's a scumbag, but he's trying to reform. The two funniest moments in the series for me were the dolphin in the van and Deep "rescuing" a lobster from the grocery store. The scientology shit is boring though. Can't really see a payoff.

And that is why it is such a GREAT character and actor playing him. One of those you love to hate.

The problem is that the other story lines are just so much stronger that this one feels like it is wasting time that could be spent on the good stuff. But I think the lighter, somewhat humorous stuff actually helps set apart and even intensify the more serious scenes that follow. So not my favorite parts of the episode either, but works as kind of an addition by subtraction.

I did LOL when Homelander threw the kid off the roof. I knew what was going to happen next. I wonder if the "Son of Superman" will be even stronger than his dad? I've yet to read to the comics, so I don't know what happens.

I did think the stuff with Deep was the weakest. I think the gills are gross and felt that the whole thing with Patton Oswalt was weak. Stormfront was a real c-word, but they're definitely going to build on that. Urban still rocks and is my favorite character on the show. The Female is also really cool. I did not realize it was Katana from Suicide Squad. She's pretty.

Loved all 3. Really wish they had not spoiled the whale thing in the trailer. So many different plots going on at the same time. The show is pretty deep with regard to plot.

I do agree with above speculation about the two points.
Spoiler:
Vaught has a way to control the heroes and Hughie somehow takes compound V

I normally watch all trailers, but decided not to for season 2, even though I was super excited for it. Some of the stuff comes out of left field, so happy to not be spoiled!

This show is fantastic. I had never heard of the comics before last season, so this is all new to me and I'm loving every minute of it. I laugh every time Homelander insists on calling them "Supervillains" and everyone ignores him and keeps calling them "Super Terrorists". :lol:
