First the writers were mad the audience liked Homelander, then they were mad the audience liked Soldier Boy, now they're mad the audience likes Firecracker and doesn't like the newest season... Seems like the writers are living on a different planet, trying to punish the audience for liking characters they should hate.
Imagine if the writers started punishing the audience for liking Tony Soprano or Walter White...

Which writers said they were mad?

Well said.
I think they mistake being a fan of their character as being a fan of them & their behavior & conduct.
There's a big difference.
And it speaks loudly of the producers/writers character as creators they would respond to such a small minority of their audience by massively altering the storylines of future seasons of the show to supposedly 'piss off' the supposed faction of the show's fanbase.
 
Have you even READ the comic?!? It was just a lambasting of G.W. Bush. Who do you think "Vic The Veep" was in the comic?

"Help my dicky hat..."

Not to get political, but the source material is the source material.

First time popping into this thread since the s4 release. Caught up on episodes 1 and 2.

Are we back to the same old outrage of "when did Rage Against The Machine get so political?!??!"
 
Still need the watch episode 3 but this season is the worst imo.
Too many rehashed story lines. Why do we need another 'Frenchy being haunted by his past' or more Kimiko and the Shining Light Liberation Army backstory? The Starlight stuff is pretty bad at this point too, her scenes are too jarring with her fucked up look.
 
I mean, tame is a bit much. It was gross in the comics but I think they were comparable. The characters sitting on a huge couch giving each other handjobs isn’t so much worse than magneto’ing the blood out of someone’s dick

"But it's STRAIGHT porn!!!"

Man, those kids in that box... :( As another sherdogger so eloquently put it...

"Those poor wee bairns."

It's like Alan Moore and Rorschach, he doesn't think he's a hero at all.

"Alan Moore intended for the vigilante to represent what he imagined Batman would be in real life. As the creator put it, the Caped Crusader would be "a nutcase." There was no love of the character, just an examination of the archetype."

The way they've replaced Noir makes me feel like there's a decent chance Kripke is going to include that particular plotline from the sauce by the end of the series.
 
The user score of the first 3 seasons is 95%, 83%, & 75% which are relatively high for a show that is 'left-wing' mostly because it pokes fun at nearly everything.
Its an absurd world it takes place in, so that's why many of the left-wing messages are accepted by right-wing audiences.

The issue is it dances on a fine red line, and usually when a show does that it always jumps over to the left-wing side and sticks hard to it.

THAT said, (and I really should have mentioned this in my post under the spoiler) it should be noted that real-life politicans have been inspiration for characters in The Boys...


Why Is ‘The Boys’ Trying to Kill Its Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Character?​

"It’s with this reveal that I almost sympathize with right-wingers for the misunderstanding. Revealing that your AOC stand-in character is a deceptive, bloodthirsty monster is one of the most Republican-coded twists a show could ever do, the sort of thing you’d expect from one of those movies produced by The Daily Wire. It’s the plot point that right-wingers will point to as proof that the show’s on their side, and it's what other viewers will use to prove that the show is politically neutral. If Homelander’s their critique of the right and Neuman’s their critique of the left, fans often conclude, then The Boys’ point of view must be somewhere in the middle."

This type of turd makes it so hard to be a lefty. How fucking deranged must you be to draw these conclusions?
 
"the sort of thing you’d expect from one of those movies produced by The Daily Wire."

'....The sort of thing...'
'...From one one of those...'

Good god that sentence structure is attrocious.

It should not be hard for a half decent writer to roast that Gina Carano Donald Cerone western TDW's studio pushed out. Or the hair sniffer movie.

This is like getting a swing and miss in teeball.
 
Neuman is an Alexandria Cortez stand in character? What elements of Neuman’s character are supposed to mimic Cortez?

What was the name of that comedy that made fun of transexuals.... Lady-Ballers? It was like it was trying to be a early-to-mid 2000s R-rated comedy..... and I laughed twice throughout it.

Far too preachy and Daily Wire is on positive terms with many comedians who could have helped write the script.

This 96-second clip is funnier than the whole movie.

 
So, I'm not entirely caught up on the show (I'm about half way through season 3 at the moment), but the people complaining about it "going woke" sound pretty fucking stupid to me. I mean, from the start, it was a pretty explicitly left-leaning show, to the point that I, as a leftist, felt it was a bit too on the nose.

I mean, I haven't started season 4 yet, so maybe it somehow gets more "woke", but I don't really see how the show can make its politics any more clear than when it made the main villain for season 2 a literal alt-right internet troll.

All of that aside, regardless of our political views, we shouldn't let that distract us from the one thing that should unite us all about The Boys. Namely, the fact that Kimiko is fucking adorable.
