I don't remember Neuman being so powerful. Black Noir being a Chatty Cathy

Man, Laz Alonzo lost half of himself. I thought he looked buffed and built before, but now he is half that and that daughter is something out of Blade 2. Very freaky, but I'm so glad it's back and i think 5 seasons is perfect. It has been running its course. Still good, but no longer has that fresh car smell.

And, how is Black Noir alive after Homelander ripped his innards out? only saw first ep however, but doesn't seem like they are going back to that unless he is invincible like Kimiko?

I used Amazon X-Ray and see it’s Black Noir 2. And, apparently, he talks.

Yeah. These are rubbing me the wrong way. I don’t like this new shit. Frenchie is gay? Since when? I thought him and Kimiko were good together. I do think Anthony Starr is brilliant portraying Homelander.

I'm liking it so far. I like the addition of Sage and the "Firecracker" supe. And MM leading the team, and the dynamics between Vicky and everyone else. I don't care for the new development with Frenchie because it felt like he and Kimiko were gradually moving toward romance. Also, something is weird with Ryan's voice. Either they're dubbing a woman's voice in to make him sound younger, or he's doing a falsetto or something because it just doesn't sound right coming from him.

I don't know much about the comics, but Homelander was bi-sexual in them. I wonder if they are moving that plot point over to Frenchie (who is really different in the comics), while we enjoyed all three episodes, that point was a little jarring since it wasn't really hinted at in the previous seasons. Still wondering what the true motive of Sister Sage could be, it can't be that cut and dried (she seems to be trying to turn the supes against each other).

Same.

Honestly, S3 was peak with Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy.

This just seems like they're going for over-top, South Park shock value at expense of the story and no Jensen Ackles. When South Park trolls everyone it's an absolute art form. No wonder they're ending it after one more season.

Let's overload the episodes with parallels to real-life events/conspiracy theories and bullshit. Oh yeah let's explore a major characters sexuality because it's time and we missed our chance three seasons ago. Also let's include

Didn't Homelander get it on with that shape shifter dude, who not only shifted into his old boss (the lactating MILF) and Homelander himself?

I think it's pretty bad. Someone needs to remind Kripke to make it more entertaining.

It has Its moments but overall it feels deflated, it lost its charm.

Still enjoying it, but can understand why some dislike it. It's def not as good as the previous seasons.
Spoiler:
What was on that coffee table during that scene between Sage and the Deep (at the end)? Given the 'blood' on that metal rod, did she lobotomize herself? Or did Homelander do that to her? wonderig if I missed something?

Spoiler:
Yes she did... apparently how she takes a break from being the smartest person in the world.

I first thought she killed The Deep's octopus and was feeding it to him.

Meh as always too much a good thing gets worn out. The more extreme they get it seems like they are saying look at what we can put on TV ha ha take that!!

Not digging it so far as some have stated I mean it is Ok but the whole Frenchie thing is really dumb since it came out of nowhere.

I watched all 3 yesterday and forgot a lot from the last season.
