The Boys Review

Amazon prime premiered The Boys a few weeks ago and I’m fiending for season two. Like most superhero type shows it’s adapted from a comic series, but this series was never intended for children. This was made for people who grew up in the 80s and 90 and are enjoying the comic pop culture explosion but wish there was a dark outlet that was actually good (Sorry DCEU). What happens when you take the Justice league and add in the cruelty and corruption of corporate America? You get this show, you get The BOYS! Eric Kripke from supernatural and the team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who are on their last ride with preacher, team up to give us the dark yet funny show.

Hughie ( Played by Jack Quaid some May remember him as Marvel from the hunger games series ) plays your shy but lovable Everyman whose life is ripped to pieces when his girlfriend was hit by a speedster hero called A-Train. The scene is quite graphic and tragic so let me reiterate this show is not for kids. Instead of a heartfelt moment between Hero and victim where the hero apologizes and tries to make amends. In this world, A-Train is represented by the Vought corporation a company who sponsors and manages over 200 superheroes and makes billions off merchandising them and making movies and tv shows (sound vaguely familiar don’t it ) they meet with Hughie offer him some money and an NDA. 

He didn’t take it well and that’s when we meet Bill the Butcher, an FBI AGENT  who has a personal vendetta with people with superpowers. Bill is played by Karl Urban who has become a constant fixture in comic / sci-fi over the last 10 years. The kiwi plays the role as rough and rowdy as a modern cowboy with a love for expletives. The rest of his team a guy by the name of Mothers milk ( played by Laz Alonso ) and Frenchie (played by Tomer Capon) tried their best to take down Vought and their team of “superheroes “

The show and comic are a complete deconstruction of the superhero world by driving straight into our modern society in every dark way possible. Pro-choice vs pro-life all the way up to the #Metoo movement are being thrown at you. The show echoes a lot of similarities of philosophy with Watchmen. I don’t wanna spoil it but I think that’s the best way I can put it ( btw the Watchmen series COMES ON TV IN THE FALL). The Boys is a must watch show!! You don’t wanna miss it. 

Don’t worry we will be doing a full review with spoilers on the Amerime Junkies podcast.

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes. 1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matc

Scissor Seven on Netflix Stream or Skip

STREAM OR SKIP?   Scissor Seven is a Chinese animated series that was streamed in 2018 with the name of Killer Seven. As soon as Netflix streamed this show at the start of 2020, it became a hit globally! With the increasing popularity of Anime, Netflix has created a whole Anime library for anime fans. Scissor Seven is the first Chinese anime being streamed on Netflix. It’s a serious debate on whether to call it an anime or not, but I won’t get into that discussion for now.   Why Should You Watch Scissor Seven? If I needed to coat only a single thing in the list of why you should be watching it that would be the COMEDY! It is hilarious! Seven might not be the best killer, but that Goofy-head is the best entertainer for sure! It is a hilarious satire on the whole hero business, as we can how Seven is nothing but a Professional Goof! Scissors is his ultimate weapon on which he uses his telekinetic abilities. Every Hero needs a sidekick, here our sidekick is an angry bird with
