Anyone watching?
Just binged the whole series and found it the perfect antidote to the usual Super Heroes stuff!

GrimDamnFanjo Fri 09-Aug-19 17:17:00

No one? It's fabulous!

I'm up to episode 6. It's so good!

One of the best series to come out in a long long time I think.

Henlie Sat 10-Aug-19 08:08:50

Yes! We watched it all last weekend. I thought it was brilliant...! I’m guessing there’ll be another series coming along??

GrimDamnFanjo Sat 10-Aug-19 10:40:29

Yes I believe a second season has been commissioned.

Netflix? Prime?

bakedbeanzontoast Sat 10-Aug-19 10:56:12

It's on amazon prime if memory serves right

It’s awesome!

Some of the deaths are impressive.

Yep, I saw it, really enjoyed it. Slightly predictable twist at the end but I still want to see what Butcher will do. Had to look away at some points as the violence was pretty brutal, especially from Homelander.

Not sure what to make of The Deep. At times comic, but also pervy and very tragic.

GrimDamnFanjo Sat 10-Aug-19 14:46:12

Yes the Deep ended up as my favourite character. He didn't do it "on porpoise" ;) the management of his behaviour was darkly comedic.
I wonder if we will see more people that didn't make the 7 in the next series?

bakedbeanzontoast Sat 10-Aug-19 17:02:01

Homelands is my favourite.

Love a good baddy.

*er

I binge watched the whole series too. Wasn't sure what it was going to be like but found it excellent! Wish I hadn't binged it now, too log to wait for a second series.

JustHereWithMyPopcorn Sun 11-Aug-19 14:03:33

Butcher's accent was annoying, he's a New Zealander but I think they were trying to make him English? It was painful. That's my only negative comment.

HoneysuckIejasmine Sun 11-Aug-19 14:45:54

Yes, Urban's "British" accent was a fail.

I8toys Sun 11-Aug-19 16:04:49

Loved it. Binged it and want another series

iklboo Sun 11-Aug-19 16:12:27

It was SO good. Especially playing the C bomb drinking game wink

Rahul88 Sun 11-Aug-19 20:00:58

I enjoyed it. Didn’t realise he was supposed to be British till it was mentioned about halfway through.

minou123 Sun 11-Aug-19 21:50:08

I've just started episode 2.
Im enjoying it so far

I dont know all the names yet, so bare with me.
I love busters fake British accent, but I love it when actors put in fake accents.

GrimDamnFanjo Mon 12-Aug-19 01:45:08

Butcher is very Dick Van Dyke!
Loved the Haley Joel Osmont character too.

Tartyflette Mon 12-Aug-19 02:01:08

Just watched the first two episodes tonight and really enjoyed it. (Although I had to look away during some of the really gory bits).
And Karl Urban's (Butcher) 'English' accent really was all over the place!
I just read that the actor playing Homelander is a Kiwi too but he obviously has no problems playing American.

BG2015 Mon 12-Aug-19 17:39:14

Watched the first episode and thought it was really good. Definitely going to watch it all now.

Mookie81 Mon 12-Aug-19 22:30:35

The scene when Homelander and Queen Maeve left the plane of people was rough!

HoneysuckIejasmine Tue 13-Aug-19 17:16:31

I think QM is going to crack, Starlight is clearly getting to her. After the whole plane incident, and when she realises what Homelander has done with the Compound V... That's got to be her limit.
