Can't wait for season 2.
Itís an excellent show  
illmatic : 8/12/2019 5:13 pm : link
As soon as I watched the last episode, I was ready for season 2. Thankfully, I think theyíre filming it now.
It's brilliant TV  
montanagiant : 8/12/2019 5:23 pm : link
The hit it out of the park in every aspect. Pace, Story lines, Action, Plot twists all are on point
Good show. Really well done.  
Heisenberg : 8/12/2019 5:25 pm : link
And a good offset for our over-saturated Superhero Movie film industry
Excellent show - season ending felt abrupt  
MM_in_NYC : 8/12/2019 5:29 pm : link
Starlight is hot. Just looking at her makes some of the scenes interesting.

Would've liked a few more things built up before season ended, but they certainly have me anticipating s2.
There's like a post on this every few days lol amazon

5 or 6 post dedicated to this show already on here smh
I kept reading about how brutal the show is  
santacruzom : 8/12/2019 5:57 pm : link
and when I caught the first episode, I was expecting "brutal" to mean "gore." And though there was a bit of that, nothing was as brutal as the way the first episode ended, which I actually thought was legitimately affecting, almost upsetting. Definitely got my attention.

It is funny how the same thread keeps popping up.
I was on the fence

As far as dedicating time to watch the show, but with all the positive reviews I think I'll give it a go, thanks for the ringing endorsement.
Great show.  
LauderdaleMatty : 8/12/2019 10:55 pm : link
Really really well done. Urban did a really good job(IMO) in Almost Human. Only one year but a good SciFi series
My wife and I finished the last two  
jvm52106 : 8/13/2019 8:45 am : link
episodes last night (ending at 12:30). Love this show. The ending we kind of saw coming or at least, some part saw coming. Starlight is a cool character. Hate the Deep but curious where that psycho goes. Want to know more about Black Noir.

Urban talking to Pegg was a nice Star Trek nod without actually doing it or hinting at it.
Loved the show  
ATL_Giants : 8/13/2019 8:58 am : link
Watching a youtube recap of the comic book storyline was very revealing. In the books, the incident with Starlight and Deep, is actually with 3 of the men on the 7.
not really into super hero / comic book type shows.

Is it still worth watching?
finished it last night.. freaking awesome and most realistic  
GMAN4LIFE : 8/13/2019 9:32 am : link
super hero show ever.

Homelander in the terrorist hideout was badass

Similar to GoT I don't think you have to be into fantasy or comic books to enjoy this. I'm pretty much done with the Marvel/DC movies but this is awesome so far. Its like a much better, more "realistic" version of Watchmen.
thanks  
ron mexico : 8/13/2019 9:45 am : link
I'll give it a shot

Agreed. It's a revenge story, with some great characters. I was aching to know more backstory about most of them.

It has similarities but the story arc - in terms of the antagonist/protagonist - is completely different.

I thought it was a nice antidote to all of the superhero movies out there.

I've read issues #1 to #13 of the comics - which much more closely follows the Boys than it does the seven. Think the show did a great job of taking out the important parts of the comics, without trying to be overly graphic, or pornographic, in the way that the comics are.
Great show!!

Great season finale, canít wait for season two!!
holy shit

I just realized that the guy who plays Butcher is the same guy who played McCoy in the Star Trek reboots!

And Simon Pegg, who plays Hughie's father, plays Scotty in those movies - and he was also the inspiration for Hughie in the comics.
damn  
santacruzom : 8/14/2019 4:22 pm : link
I thought that guy looked like Simon Pegg, but he doesn't resemble him at all beyond just appearance. Pretty good acting job.

He also played Hela's Executioner in Thor Ragnarok.
His name is Karl Urban.

He was pretty good in the Judge Dredd remake too.

Neither am I, this show actually has more appeal to us that don't like the super hero/ comic book type shows. A ton more depth and grey area.
I'm surprised  
santacruzom : 8/14/2019 7:11 pm : link
by how wrenching some of the scenes really are. Just wrapped up episode 4, with the plane scene... tough watch.
Holy Joel Osment!

Same guy who played the bad russian guy in the Jason Bourne movies
Just wrapped up  
santacruzom : 8/16/2019 5:10 am : link
Season 1. Not quite sure what to think about the decision to throw a "what the fuck" cliffhanger out to end it, but we'll see how they write themselves out of that corner.

I liked the ending - sets up some interesting possibilities for Season 2.

You think that's crazy? I just realized that the girl who plays Starlight is Kristy Swanson, time traveled from 1992 and fresh off Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

Um, ?
It was ok  
BigBlueDownTheShore : 8/22/2019 11:16 am : link
I thought the Sups were very cheesy and for some reason that took away some of the enjoyment. I thought it was ok not this master piece everyone is calling it.
Just finished episode 6  
Sonic Youth : 8/22/2019 11:21 am : link
Really really liking this show. Awesome premise, great production value. It's shot like a movie for sure
And yeah  
Sonic Youth : 8/22/2019 11:21 am : link
Starlight is a dime. One of the best looking actresses I've seen lately.
I loved it  
Joey in VA : 8/22/2019 11:50 am : link
I've watched it twice already start to finish. The two most cringeworthy moments though, I almost had to look away, and I won't say what they are for those who haven't finished but...gross.

The comics are much worse....
Finally finished it last night  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 8/24/2019 8:53 am : link
Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next season. Like someone said, let's see how they deal with the final reveal but it sets up a few new storylines for Season 2. Karl Urban is always good but he took it to another level in this one.

But I gave this show four episodes, and I really don't like it at all.
