The Boys season two 

Probably my affection for Problematic Comics™ is a big part of why I do not assign moral value to anyone's media consumption. Identity Crisis, Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, The Boys, they were all foundational comic books for me. Love em! Won't defend em! Except maybe Watchmen, which I think is genuinely one of the best pieces of comic book literature ever created. But holy hell Alan Moore does not seem to have a high opinion of women.

The Boys season two 

Let me be clear: I read this entire comic. Got the first trade shortly after release, then collected every issue from 7 to the end, including the various plot-essential miniseries. It's basically a tijuana bible with a plot and lots of gore. If that sounds like your jam, go ahead, but if not, don't bother. It treats very serious topics as shock value add-ins and sometimes even as fodder for jokes. Foul, ill-considered tripe. Again, I really need to stress, I love it a lot.

I think the TV show The Boys is a pretty good TV show. I think the comic, which is very dear to my heart, is depraved garbage which I would not recommend to anyone without knowing their tastes extremely well.

I guess the comic book version is supposed to be a cipher for the audience to insert themselves, for whatever fucking stupid reason, into this world where Superman is a rapist

I think the most remarkable innovation of this show is that Hughie has character traits besides "sad" and "looks like Simon Pegg"

The guy who plays Homelander is such extremely perfect casting. He looks exactly right and the actor does a fantastic job.

Simon Pegg's American accent is so good that he sounds like he's been dubbed over by someone else
