Wasn't the spinoff gonna be called Varsity? Going with a different name or is Varsity something else?

Looks good, but never did finish the The Boys, whichever the last season was. I guess I stopped watching it the season right before Jensen Ackles shows up. Superhero fatigue and all that.

You should finish it up. Thought the last season was easily its best one.

I'm not sure about this. Seems pretty much like a cash-in, using the license, a few tiny supporting characters, and hiring younger cheaper cast. Has kind of the cheap, knock-off feel of the New Mutants movie. Of course I could be wrong (and hope I am -- I kind of dug The Boys).

Yeah I am pleasantly surprised by the very positive critical reception this show has received. I thought the show looked like Amazon's Agents of Shield, but glad to hear it's worth watching.

Three eps dropped today. About 50-60 minutes each.

Watched the first episode. I thought the opening would be the "highlight" but nope, that ending. Honestly I don't know what's in the second and third episode but they could've just dropped that first one alone and I think it's enough of a hook.

Also that's Arnold and Maria Shriver's son?

Why wasnít this promoted more? With the success of The Boys, I would think this would be a big deal. I had no idea this was even a thing. Glad I have this place to let me know. Looks great.

At first I didn't recognize the male version of Jordan Li because his hair is so different from the promo shots. I do like that he's got Legion-like switching powers, though. I guess both forms have invulnerability but male form has much more?

It was promoted. Quite a bit. What do you want, a plane with a sign flying over your house?
