The girlfriend insisted on bringing a TV with her when she moved in, so we started this to have something new to watch. It's actually really good, in ways I didn't really expect - both more gratuitous and over the top than I expected, but also a lot more... human, I guess, and relatable? I'm either 7 or 8 episodes in, just far enough to have seen firsthand why Billy Butcher really hates Homelander, and it's been a lot of fun.
Oh, you're just getting to the good stuff. Enjoy the ride.

Loved season 1, two episodes into season 2 and it's just dragging. Hope it improves.

It's certainly moving at a much slower pace than Season 1. I'm enjoying it, but not nearly as much as I did the first season.

The part where Homelander uses his laser eyes to kill hundreds of people looked like things were going to go absolute batshit crazy, but then it turned out to just be a fantasy/daydream of his.

I was hoping that Black Noir was coming to team up with Billy Butcher, but nope. It just kind of sizzled out after he destroyed Butcher's aunt's house.

I think we’re an episode or two behind. I concur with season 2 being a bit slower but not painfully so. I dig the Aya Cash addition and I’m curious where they’re going to take her character.

And stupid me just had to fucking read Naren’s spoiler. I only read the first couple words and quickly scrolled away. Anxious to see this, but the wife is gone on a business trip for a few days so I’m just going to watch the Eric Johnson Total Electric Guitar DVD I got last week and masturbate profusely to it.

This show has had at least three of the most disturbingly hilarious sex scenes in the history of TV. It is slower than the first season, but it would almost have to be.

"Fuck it!

Good Boy!" :lol:

I'm not clicking any spoilers since I've only seen the first two EPs this season. Homelander still steals the fucking show every scene he's in.

I don't give a shit about the deep anymore. :\

I hated him in Season 1. Now I'm more just like... meh. I don't like him or feel sorry for him at all, but I don't despise him like I did during Season 1... which is in a way kind of similar to just not giving a shit about him. I wouldn't really care if he was just killed off.

OMG I am so sick of him too. It's like when The Sopranos would have an episode about AJ, or when family Guy has a show about Meg or Brian.

They turned an already unlikable character into an unlikable little bitch of a character.

Wow, that last episode was the best one this season so far. I'd say even better than a lot of the most awesome ones of Season 1. Hopefully the rest of the episodes this season are at that level of quality. :yesway:

It's sort of becoming a running gag how the show just continuously, creatively, finds ways to kick him when he's down. I'm only 3-4 episodes into Season 2, probably, but already... The whale... :lol: But, I kinda agree with Mike. This feels like the show is priming us for something.

Homelander is just... smarmy. He's amazingly hateable.

Yeah, the whale scene was flawlessly executed TV right there!

Finished up to episode 7 tonight. Well then.

This show captures the same magic of a Tarantino film. It shows you some of the most visceral, messed-up things and plays happy, almost sarcastic music either during or right after.

Season 2 started out really slow, but the last 2 episodes have been really crazy. Especially that ending.
