Burned through the back half of The Boys on Prime until 2 am.
The show has a nuance that I don't remember from the comic, which hated superheroes. The show hates the corporation that finances and benefits from them, and therefore makes them greedy, desperate, corrupted or monstrous.
Same with The Boys themselves, it humanizes all of them in a way I only remember Butcher and Wee Hughie getting in the book.
Violent, but scales back on Ennis's over-the- top shock humor.
This is great news! The Orville has been renewed by FOX for a third season. I love this show.
@theamericanjerk UPDATE 2: Funny story: SHE didn't hose her login. She got one of those, "We're from Windows, and you have a virus" phone calls, and didn't hang up.
Correlation != causation, but I'm guessing the cause behind her other complaints that money has disappeared from her bank account.
So she has been warned not to respond to those calls, my SO will be following up to help her close her bank account, and she will NEVER BE GIVEN THAT ADMIN PASSWORD WHILE I AM ALIVE.
@theamericanjerk - UPDATE: she hosed her main account so badly I couldn't even log in.
Bought a cheap laptop, installed Chrome with AdblockPlus, And LibreOffice.
Set up fake "Word", "Excel" and "IE" shortcuts on her desk, icons included, to trick her into the right apps. Set Libre to save as MS Office formatted docs.
Most important: I set up a user-level account, and didn't give her the password for the admin account.
Now I have a mini tower to image with Ubuntu and find a use for.
My defacto mother in law is coming for lunch and hauling her tower computer here for free tech support.
I am strongly weighing driving over to the Staples at the end of the block and buying a brand new laptop to hand her to save myself the fucking aggravation.
Of course, what she NEEDS is an Ubuntu box where only I hold the sudo password, but I'd get further offering her free herpes - I have a Chromebook she refused because it was "too complicated."
tl;dr - Someone please shoot me.
I want this so that I may destroy my enemies.

In hindsight, having 99.999% of our planet's vast computational capacity dedicated to hedge funds and web browser ad malware bots fighting each other for scraps of cash is pretty much exactly what we should have expected, extrapolating from WarGames and throwing in the one surprise that the forever war of capitalism hasn't yet gone fully nuclear.
I have never liked Venom as a character. I always thought he represented the worst* of the Marvel's 90s Image Age of comics sins.
Donny Cates's and Ryan Stegman's run on Venom, however, is Goddamned SPECTACULAR.
The first two runs are out in trade now, and totally worth the $38 Yankee dollars they'll set you back.
*Yes, worse than Spider-Clone, which was also terrible. But at least that story's catastrophic failure contributed to ushering in Bendis's Ultimate Spider-Man.
I'm not answering any Goddamned questions without my lawyer here.
