For me the whole series is a total and effective satire that lets us see what would become of the world if fiction becomes reality: heroes lose interest in saving the world (or take advantage of its status), are forced to do things that are not right, to follow the company's own interests and do not go out to end the crime if they are not followed by a camera that captures each of their movements, even though they are always transmitting that image of exemplary citizen when in fact they are greedy and treat their fans badly.

It's also chilling to know that people in power act as judges and executioners to decide what crimes are profitable and what millions of dollars they rent their superheroes to other cities so they can be safe. The precision in the denunciation of The Boys is one of its strongest points since satire towards these characters is not new, but combining it with the theme of corporate America and wild capitalism gives it a clear differential touch.

The series is a total hit and is perfectly developed, to the point of making it impossible to miss because chapter by chapter the anguish increases. So if you have free time, I strongly recommend you to watch this satirical series.

Wonderful premise, beautiful pictures, handsome, good and sexy actors, what could go wrong?

Unnecessary, stupid decisions.
Everywhere.

The typical "say something!" \*stuttering and stammering* to introduce some side-story, or secret personas where the only thing to change is the hero's suit, or a wimpy protagonist who has way too many scenes of indecisiveness, long and drawn out dialogues (seriously 2x the speed and it's like things are normal again), extraneous lies to create drama, etc. etc. etc.

It's like a trope collection turned into a superhero series with a "*gotcha!*" twist. Seriously, the acting and the story is good, but the tropes kill every redeeming quality.

It's a tragedy

A great series set in a world where superheroes are a real phenomenon.

Capitalism is omnipresent, profit and money are in everyone's mind.
Of course the 'Sups' abuse their power for their own interests and many more cruel and immoral things.
Every hero's doing is explained, some more, some less. There's a perfect balance between big serious storylines and little kind of darker humor ones.

'The Boys' are trying to destroy this whole system due to personal problems with some of the 'Sups'. The focus clearly is around them and what they're doing.
So it's definitely an Anti-Superhero show which look and topic reminds me of 'Watchmen' or some other more Noir candidates in this genre.

The whole series is explicit, which adds up really well. Without the violence and the handling with sexual situations the whole show wouldn't be that impressive and near to the reality. Not appropriate for younger viewers, if you ask me.
