A series of actions that speak of a world of superheroes and their dangerous behavior into a series of challenges to destroy the universe, which could jeopardize the safety of the world. In order to deal with all that is happening, a group of volunteers are engaged in a dangerous task to eliminate these corrupt superheroes who misuse these great and dangerous powers.
It's an entertaining series without perhaps the abundance of dry wit of "Preacher," and a subplot involving a mysterious substance called Compound V never really warms up. But for summer fun, sure, why not?
It's shocking and crude, but it's profane for a reason and outrageous because it actually has something to say about those in power and the heroes we worship. It's crazy, but it's also a hell of a lot of fun.
[Almost "fresh" because it's fearless] The character development from the comics isn't here and without that you really don't understand who The Boys are, so you can't really side with them-and in their twisted universe they need someone on their side.
The Boys can be called a lot of things. It's vulgar, crass, violent, and bloody. It's absurd, but earnest. But The Boys has something to say about hero worship and absolute power, and it blends well even with the often indelicate delivery.
The Boys is by no means perfect - the jokes often fall flat and the show is already guilty of an uneven tone that juggles heart-wrenching drama one minute and Tarantino-esque scraps the next - but it's undeniably refreshing.
