The Boys has been a project I’ve been waiting for since I read volume 1 Name of the Game. Amazon picked up the comic book and turned it into a TV show. There’s an issue with a comic book becoming a movie or a show. How much of the source material will be used in the project? The Boys is a series that has be handled with delicacy. There are certain things that need to be in the show to keep authenticity. This series did an amazing job of combining the source material and making a show with a ton of potential. With this season only being 8 episodes, you have to get into things pretty quick. So things have to be changed.

Billionaire Businessman Shahid Khan shocked the world when he announced he is the lead investor for the new Pro Wrestling Company All Elite Wrestling (AEW). The man who built a multi-billion dollar auto parts empire, owner of Soccer Team Fulham F.C. and owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League was now funding a Pro Wrestling company who many speculate will rival Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment brand. With such high profile success in various businesses surely, Mr. Khan would apply lessons learned from them to AEW; right? Judging by the events of the past week, maybe not.

Where to start with this episode. My wife said “Westeros is purgatory in a logging town”, a reference to the final episodes of both Lost and Dexter. I can’t say I disagree with her. I have said many times that I think people are going to look at this episode the same way they regard the final episode of those shows. So here we go, just going to get right into it and tear the band-aid off.
The first thing I want to say is that right now, at this moment, I don’t even care what happens in the show, and how it ends. For all I care it could end up being Bran’s coma dream and it’s revealed that nothing happened after he was shoved out the window by Jaime Lannister and everything we’ve seen was all just a side effect of the milk of the poppy he’s been given to dull his pain, similar to the “it was all a dream” trope.
The best way I can describe this season is to compare Benioff and Weiss to living with terrible roommates. At first, things are great because they were really happy to have a place to stay; they’re respectful, they do the dishes and help out with the chores. Then things start to get a little rocky, there are some disagreements on the placement of furniture or how to decorate. But the person who invited them in then forgives them and they come to a compromise. This is, though, the beginning of the end….
