It seems as though you can’t throw a rock without hitting a streaming service these days. If you’re Amazon Prime, it’s quickly becoming a crowded market, never mind the difficulties in keeping up with the likes of Netflix, and with Disney+ arriving this fall, things will only get tougher. Amazon may already have an Oscar under their belt, but to separate themselves from the pack they needed something big. What’s the big dog in entertainment these days you ask? Superheros of course. So in comes “The Boys”, a show based on a comic book mini-series, that oozes style and plays off the superhero genre in a refreshing, if somewhat graphic, way to great effect. Julian and Dan discuss how the critically acclaimed Amazon Prime series is able to walk the line between satire and drama, explore it’s roots in DC archetypes, and then dive deep into each of the main story threads. Beware of spoilers!
