The Boys/Better Than Us

Zardnaar

Hero
Two shows we have watched in the last week.

The Boys- Amazon
Its a super heros subversive show where heros are very very flawed. Gas not Superman, Not Captain Marvel, Not The Flash etc. R18 you have been warned.

Better Than Us- Netflix
This is a Russia show we watched with dubbing although subtitles are available. Superficially similar to Humans its a decent take on the old Android/human am I alive type dynamic.

Other stuff
3% Netflix

Foreign language from Brazil. Downward slide since season 1 set after global disaster. Still not to bad just not great.

Money Heist Netflix

Another foreign language show from Spain. Very clever show one of the best I've found on Amazon.
 

Hussar

Legend
Loved The Boys. Excellent show.

Better than Us - I watched the first five or six episodes, but, I've kinda lost interest. Fantastic production values though. Surprisingly good.

Season 1: Though the premise is implausible, it's clever & entertaining.

Season 2: ..... :(
If you've only seen season 1, just skip season 2 & assume the entertaining rogues lived happily ever after.
Because the clever plan from season 1? A slightly re-hashed version is just tedious & more absurd this time, the characters do bafflingly stupid things, & then turn them selves into actual villains by the end.
A 3rd season is teased in the final episode. (no idea if they did a season 3, but if they did I'm not watching.)

I've seen all of it, season 1 was split in two for Netflix?

Still enjoyed it but yeah not as good

Maybe?
Season 1 on Netflix ended with them getting away with the loot.
Season 2 started with the idiot getting himself caught on the island while his GF goes partying.
I don't know how it was originally aired in Spain.

There were 3 season on Netflix, been watching since it started.

They cut the Spanish season 1 into two parts.

Might vary by country on Netflix idk

But yeah the new job wasn't as good. I still liked it but not as much.

The Boys is fantastic and has a lot going on in it, surprised by some of them at the end of season 1.

Pennyworth, great background and stories.

He's kinda sympathetic, never really had much of a chance.

Fan of Antony Star via Outrageous Fortune and Banshee.

A series on broadcast err... cable that keeps getting better is Siren. Teo seasons with third coming in spring. Interesting merfolk development. Plays on Freeform and also Hulu.

Additionally, still merely but different Netflix Tidelands or Tidelander. But it was different take and one season and gone.
