    Thanks for the information! I'll look forward to another season of adventure. I still have the finale episode to go. I'll watch it tomorrow.

    I watched the first episode, and I think I’ll like this. I’m so sick of superhero stuff, and I’ve only seen a fraction of them. I like to see them lampooned.

    We just watched the first episode. As someone who grew up in the 50’s when superheroes fought for “Truth, justice, and the American Way” and even Batman wasn’t so dark back then, this is quite a different look at superheroes. I think it fits in with today’s world when everything is for sale. We’ll be watching this series.

    Yep, you'll find the superheroes here do some pretty dastardly things during the course of the season.

    You had me at violent and superheroes.

    I heard about this last week listening to The Completely Unnecessary Podcast with Pat Contri and Ian Ferguson (shameless plug) and immediately thought it might be something I would like. I’m about to leave the hospital now and go home for the night so I should be able to watch at least two episodes (maybe three) before I have to go to bed.

    Visiting my wife’s mother. She’s undergoing treatment for leukemia.

    My plan was to watch a couple of episodes but our internet was out last night when I got home so it will have to wait until next weekend.

    Watched the first two episodes of this last night. Needed something a bit lighter after bingeing the first season and a half of The Handmaid's Tale :unsure:.

    My favorite bit so far was A-Train
    doing the Make-a-wish visit with the kid with cancer - "Well, maybe (Translucent) can swing by next week.. or something?" (Looks at doctor, doctor quietly shakes his head no).

    Yes I have a morbid sense of humor, so this show should be right up my alley.

    The second season of The Handmaid's Tale is extra nasty. Particularly involving Alexis Bledel's character. Her encounter with (the almost unrecognizable) character played by Marisa Tomei is especially brutal.

    The music choices are excellent! Who's ever doing the music editing is doing a bang up job! Little end of ep 2 pun.

    Jane's Addiction
    The Dammed
    The Clash
    Iggy Pop
    The Runaways

    And I'm just starting ep 3!

    Just realized at the end of ep 3 that Homelander is Antony Starr from another awesome show I used to watch - Banshee.
