    Just finished this weekend and, wow, hell of an ending. Sets things up nicely for season 2 hopefully. Did anyone notice the easter egg of Giancarlo Esposito's character "going to Belize"? This has to be an intentional reference

    They definitely go some different directions, compared to what I remember from the comics. Homelander was much more of a psycho in the original. And I don't remember the plot twist with Becca still being alive, and raising Homelander's child but that might just be my poor memory. Good stuff overall, would definitely watch a season two.

    EDIT: Jesus, just went back and skimmed through some of the comics. That is some GRISLY shit.

    By the way: if you don't want to read the comic, do your best to avoid spoilers. There are some bombshells coming, really good twists, and I think most of the pieces are there in season one of the show... so hopefully they're planning to drop those bombs at some point.

    I see lots of love here for this show. Personally I don't get it, it's too much. After the forced blow job scene with sunshine girl I wanted to puke too. I never did finish the first episode.

    It certainly has some triggers in it. Sounds like some of them matched up with your dislikes. Show's not for everyone. \_(ツ)_/

    I'm with you. I totally get why people would love this show. The premise is really interesting. Production values are great. The actors look really good. I have no sense of the writing, but to be this popular it can't suck.

    But it was too dark for me. The Punisher is the about as anti-hero as I want to get in the super hero realm.
    - Definitely
