Saw the first 3 and love it. I’m a Preacher fan, also written by Ennis.

I watched the season and thought it was clever. It would be in my top ten fav series, maybe in the 9th or 10th spot...

I enjoyed it. Terry thought it was about something else.

or the wife; unless she appreciates something like this.


Lost count of how many times she's asked, "How can you watch that crap?"

Almost done with episode 2.

I’m not into the superhero movie comic book stuff but this has been engaging so far

Superheroes are real and all work for a major corporation. They’re all narcissistic a$holes, drunks, and druggies worries about their own fame and fortune. There’s a group of regular people that have been wronged by the supes and are trying to take them down. Lots of blood, guts, sex, and violence sprinkled in with some hilarious dark humor.

I’m not normally into it either, but this is a completely different take on it. I really enjoyed it.

So I went ahead and watched S1E1 because of DWC.

Well that was entertaining. Ended up watching until the end. Wow, I liked it. Will there be a season 2?
Was that wrong? Should I not have done that?

It's great that they shifted the "evil" more onto the corporation than characters like Homelander doing insanely disgusting and depraved acts like in the comic, this is one instance where the show is actually better than the comic IMO. Doesn't help that in the comic, Homalander eats babies.
