THE BOYS are back, 2022

Ratings are up-

Amazon has announced that the first three episodes of the new season released last week saw an increase of 21% in viewership over its first four days compared to the similar three-episode, third-season launch.

 
Supersized episode 5 was easily the most INSANE, bloodiest, yet funniest of the whole series. Even the music under the closing credits cracked me up. Jefferey Dean Morgan was brief, but hysterical.

Loved the killer chickens and flying sheep. Cracked me up. Hughie and his dad's story was sad. Homelander is rubbing off on his teen son. He is becoming more like Homelander every day.
 
I think I'm 4 episodes into the season. The writing is getting lazy. They are repeating plot devices way too often, and it feels like they are squeezing things in as if they cut out other ideas but didn't want to drop the idea completely. Most of the characters in general are just inconsistent. No one learns anything, everyone is stuck in neutral. And they are twisting Starlight's character in a manner that isn't consistent with the previous information provided about her. Just tossing it in to propel the plot.

I do not agree. I think it's the best (and funniest) season yet.

Last week I really started to tune this out and was wondering if I'd finish the season. Just some jokes like mentioned above are just too real and real life is plenty.

This episode tonight, felt like one of the better of the season. Everything felt like it had a purpose, stories moving along.

Really feels like they're giving a few different big characters sendoffs, letting them say their goodbyes, explaining some missing backstory elements, showing them kind of getting their things in order, etc.
