    Bones' Kiwi accent comes through so hard it just sounds like a kiwi trying to do a British accent. But I'm guessing the States can't tell.

              Meh. Some of the books were semi-interesting, but it's Ennis' usual "I hate superheroes and the stranglehold they have on comics" with a heaping helping of "Hard men making hard choices." The books went on too long, guess we'll see how the show goes.

                  It is amazing that superhero Rich Evans managed to take some time out of his schedule to converse with the mortals about a superhero show

                          I feel like Watchmen covered all this territory already.

                            Watchmen and Boys have some crossover, like "fucked up versions of heroes from DC or Marvel", shocking violence and very dark humor, but the similarities end there, really.

                          Preacher was pretty good. Though I didn't read the original comic.

                            i recommend Preacher to everyone and I think the readdaption is great. It's like a 10 inch dick, you gotta see it to believe it.

                              You are so wrong Rich. Preacher goes there...I can't believe the things they actually keep from the comic. It is not a direct translation...but it 100% keeps the essence of the comic.

                                Can confirm. The first season is a slow build-up and a bit tame, also set before the series until the finale, but once season 2 starts they’re nearly adapting the comics 1:1. The lack of discourse around the show works completely in its favour; if they can get away with a Jesus sex scene they can get away with anything

                              Homelander is the best superhero (villain) since The Comedian. Antony Starr needs an Emmy. He is one of the best psychopaths on film.

                                How about the anti-religious speech in episode 5? And Amazon turning off comments because their blatant bigotry via heavy-handed exposition was earning them 1 star reviews? The characters might as well turn to the camera and say "We interrupt this show to bring you opinions from the writers, on how much they hate religion." Telling people how much you hate religious groups is so woke. So progressive.

                                Might have been nicer if they'd closer to the source material. But ok. It was a bit too current year.

                                  Just wanted to let you guys know that I simply love what you're doing. Watching your reviews of films I've watched gives me sometimes better insight into them. Watching reviews of things I haven't watched might either make me wanna watch them or just at least be aware of what that thing is about. I've learned so much from this channel and after years of following you I still look forward to every new video!

                                    I watch Preacher and I mostly love it. The first season is too slow but the rest is great. I recommend it all the time and no one takes me up on it.

                                          Having tried the comic run and bouncing off hard (seriously this series is downright wholesome in comparison) I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised by this show.

                                            "The whole show goes so much darker than I expected!" Yeah don't read the comic run. It's downright gratuitous.

                                            I don't really think it ended on a cliffhanger. They answer enough questions to be satisfying. You find out what happened to Butchers wife and it wraps up the thread with Starlight and Hugh's drama. It leaves enough to go on next season with the Deep and Supervillians. I don't really see why anyone would be disappointed with this ending. Had it ended when he pulled the C4 trigger then I'd say it was a cliffhanger.

                                              Not to be "that guy" but isn't the point of the comicbook villains who have a powerset that mirrors the main protagonist to show what happens when those abilities are in the hands of the corrupt & the incompetant?

                                              It stuns me Reverse Flash has never vaporized anyone like A-Train did. It's usually just a lot of bloodless but still unsettling methods.

                                                      The show was good but had a number of flaws that dragged it down for me.

                                                          I think Jay meant each episode is a short movie, not the entire season.
