    Paperweight TOE!

    Started watching The Boys yesterday while doing dishes.

    I read the first trade of the comics, and while I enjoy Garth Ennis's writing; I was never a fan of Darick Robertson's art. So this is a pretty nice concession. Plus Karl Urban is always fun to watch. Glad to see Simon Pegg made it into the series. If I recall correctly, Huey was based off of him in the comics. So it's cool that he's playing Huey's father.

    Plus, the show really feels like a welcome relief from all the vanilla family safe superhero fare polluting everywhere these days. Not that I don't enjoy superheroes, but man - let it cool off Hollyweird. I remember when you scumbags were too chickensh*t to make comic book movies.

    I'll deduct a few points for some really awful action filming in the third episode - when the Wonder Woman stand-in is "beating up" some sparring partners. That may be the most edits and cuts I've seen since Al Pacino's stunt double was running and hopping fences in Insomnia. :p

    Binged all the way through The Boys, and I loved it!

    Finished The Boys this past week. Overall enjoyable.

    I particularly enjoy that the dialogue is very on the mark for a Garth Ennis comic. Now I'm curious if they managed to do anything similar with Preacher, which is a series that I hold in much higher regard - so I'm reluctant to risk Hollywood butchering that one. It was more profane, grotesque, and violent.

    Talking about Streaming numbers, I may be off base but I have noticed that you have to stream almost daily, set time slots, and for hours to increase viewership and gain traction. With this being a second job for PSNation staff it is going to be difficult as you have jobs and family.
    You may have to make streaming a full time job, or each member of the staff has a set day of the week and at regular times that you stream, to pull those numbers.

    Yeah, but even when we schedule streams a good deal in advance, our audience just seems to not be interested. That even happens during our Extra Life streams

    Binged the entire season and I really liked it. Quite the ending of the season too :-O
