Quote from: checkoutgirl on July 01, 2022, 03:35:56 PMThis is getting high marks by critics so far in the third series. Is that justified?
Quote from: up_the_hampipe on July 01, 2022, 03:39:06 PMI'd say this is the best season of the show so far, at the very least.
Quote from: stonkers on July 01, 2022, 06:22:16 PMI think they develop Homelander very well in this season.
Quote from: up_the_hampipe on July 01, 2022, 03:39:06 PMI like that we get full versions of the in-universe TV clips, especially the Robert Mitchum calypso parody https://twitter.com/jensensboyjared/status/1542693383864467456If they can stick the landing next week, it'll be one of the best seasons of television this year, along with Barry, Better Call Saul and (so I've heard) Stranger Things. I'd say this is the best season of the show so far, at the very least.

Quote from: Small Potatoes on July 01, 2022, 01:58:56 PMAnother belter episode, but by Christ those Cockney accents were appalling.
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on July 02, 2022, 07:37:38 PMThis show is different enough from the comics now that I have no idea where they're going with it.
Quote from: BritishHobo on July 04, 2022, 10:08:02 AMThat would be really really fun. Although Spoiler alertthey would have to come up with a really good reason as to why Butcher doesn't just kick fuck out of him until he's dead.[close]
Quote from: phantom_power on July 04, 2022, 11:50:31 AMWhy are we spoilering guesses?It could happen without Butcher being around of course
Quote from: up_the_hampipe on July 04, 2022, 04:20:45 PMMy theory for the finale:Spoiler alertDuring some big fight where Homelander and Soldier Boy are now on the same side, Butcher & Hughie play some Russian music which triggers SB's PTSD blast. However, due to the long charge-up time, Homelander is able to escape. Maybe MM and Frenchie use the nerve agent to subdue SB for the remainder of that fight. Someone may die during the blast, maybe Maeve (Black Noir will factor into this somewhere, maybe getting some good shots in on Soldier Boy). Later, HL is furious thinking that his dad tried to kill him, unaware of the PTSD stuff. "Of course he couldn't stand to see someone take the spotlight!" So he kills Soldier Boy either in a 1-1 fight or an immediate death cos SB doesn't want to fight his son, probably confused by the whole situation since he blacked out. Next season HL has spiralled worse than ever with no one on his side, he finally had a dad but killed him in a misunderstanding. This leads to his endgame rampage we've been waiting for.[close]Or not. That's what's so exciting about this finale. We have veered so far from the source material, but in a very interesting way imo.

Quote from: BritishHobo on July 04, 2022, 08:03:18 PMHow different are the comics then? Is it just the order of the plot events, or is the characterisation significantly different as well? I've been thinking of getting into the comics and probably more likely to do so if it seems like the overall story might end up completely differently.
Quote from: dissolute ocelot on July 02, 2022, 07:27:33 PMThe Butcher house looked very American/Canadian rather than British too, the panelling on the walls and everything. Stop getting Britain wrong!But fuck me can't wait till next week.
