Lots of interesting trailers happening. Did not hear anything about this coming out. I am carefully optimistic about the project.

Looking forward to this! So Pegg plays the father of the character that was based on him in the comic book?
 
Starlight looks fine but I also hate Garth Ennis so I'm torn between my love of good old girls and my hatred for a bitter Irishman

The Boys Teaser Trailer #2

This time it's the "official" teaser, when the last one was just a plain teaser, I guess. :p

Until the one stopped the truck with her butt I was trying to figure out what it was supposed to be. I was thinking some gangster nonsense. I had my fill of that. I was not expecting costumed supers. :cool:

Can’t wait. The Boys was a superb comic book series.
[MENTION=16253]Aeson[/MENTION], the premise is they are a group of non-powered humans who are employed by the government to do the dirty work of keeping the costumed heroes in line. Often very violently. The super team being kept in line in this case is a direct Justice League analog. The costumed heroes sometimes step out of bounds, and that’s when The Boys are called in.

Thank you. I hadn't heard of it before. That does sound interesting. The Boys are the ones who watch The Watchmen. Awesome.

First episode was excellent.

I’m a bit disappointed Wee Hughie has been turned into an American. But that’s my only complaint so far.

Anybody watching?

Not yet. I mean, it only became available today, and it is still before noon local time, and I have a job and all...

I might actually try an episode tonight. Or, I might finally try out Discovery.

I’m two episodes in so far. Really liking it. The gore level is high though; be warned! This is *not* for kids.

Just watched the first episode, never read the books, so still trying to understand who everyone is and how they connect.

Came away slightly confused but intrigued, not compelled to binge but I will go back for more

Thank you. I hadn't heard of it before. That does sound interesting. The Boys are the ones who watch The Watchmen. Awesome.
A little more than that, their boss has a more personal reason to do what he does. The only half decent person is Hughie, and maybe Annie. Everybody else is a complete tool.

Also, its the most Garth Ennis thing I've ever read. It's like Peak Garth Ennis.

Haven't watched the show yet, but I can only imagine.
