That whole scene with Chase at the table with White Dragon was classic!

That mean tweet bit where he almost loses it when he reads the people would rather watch straight up porn tweet, and just says yeah, if the show just gets a fraction of the audience that views porn he would be over the moon. That was pretty funny. Looking forward to watching this weeks episode.

Jody Hill directed episode 4? He's good combo with Gunn's material. Slower episode but good character moments (Gunn I guess shot the White Dragon convo/fight scene though)

It's kinda fun watching the Peacemaker character evolve as this goes. And Vigilante is just great.

“I think he’s just pretending to be gay to get away from you”

I could watch Peacemaker and Vigilante just driving around and insulting each other for an hour every week

This show is so much better than I could have imagined. Nice depth to the characters as well. Is this a one and done series?

Yeah whoever Vigilante was before, he did every one a service by dropping out. This new guy is hilarious.

Definitely a memorable "star making" role for Stroma in my book (had no idea who he was before this, even though I've seen a handful of the movies he's in). I'm curious what happens in episode 5.5 that sent the other guy scurrying. (Reading his tweets he does seem kind of like a wholesome dude.)

While not the best ratings, this had the 2nd best debut for an original show on HBO Max after ...And Just Like That per Sambas weird rating system.

Gunn had said he wants to make a second season (and Iím sure WB will let him), but he has been working non-stop for a while and wants to take a break after GoTG3.

John Cena wants to take a break too. Iím sure since the US has gotten adjusted to the UK scheduling system that weíll see a second season. Just not right away.

I, along with other fans, waited over two years for Venture Brothers and Iím still waiting on The Orville.

I liked the 4th episode too. Got some more depth to Chris' backstory and what a shitty Dad he had. Also, Vigilante was pretty badass in that prison taking out all those racist goons.

Did not expect the end reveal. I wonder how long it will take for them to figure it out.

I love Harcourt. Badass and hot. at Peacemaker. Your tits look really hot in that shirt.

Loving this show and I love seeing more about Peacemakerís backstory.

And Vigilante is incredible. They did a great job of someone who looks like a total dweeb yet is extremely believable at kicking the shit out of a bunch of white supremacists.

I laughed out loud at Adebayoís ďThat was Vigilante??Ē

this is such a fun, well created show. Gunn sure knows what he is doing in terms of action, fun factor, character builds, everything. this is another blast of fun piece of work and i can't wait to see more of PM and more from Gunn.

I wasn't overly thrilled with the first episode but this just gets better and better as it goes on. They turned what was a one joke/heel turn character into a complex individual with many layers to him.

And the montage/flashback at the end of Episode 4 told us everything we need to know about his past. I love the new Boba Fett show too, but the flashbacks took way too much time. Sometimes less is definitely more.

I'm a pretty big Gunn fan but The Suicide Squad wasn't as great as I had hoped but this series has been stellar. I usually like Cena in small doses, too.
