It will be difficult not to write any spoilers about this show, but I will do my best. But first, a joke: A man is in a bar at the top of a skyscraper in Chicago. A guy at the other end of the bar sidles over to him and says, "Did you know Chicago is called The Windy City for a reason? Why, the buildings on this block form a perfect wind tunnel, and you can jump out the window over there and you will be blown right back in!" "Get the hell out of here", the man says. "I didn't just fall off a turnip truck." "Oh yeah? I'll prove it to you", the guys says, and he staggers over to the window and without a word he pitches forward, and falls out of the window out of sight. "HOLY SHIT!", the man says, convinced he has just witnessed a suicide. But then a there is a big whistling sound of wind and suddenly the guy blows back in the window. "No fricking way!", the man says. The guy says, "Come over here and watch me do it again." The man walks to the window and watches as the guy stumbles out the window. The man peers down and actually sees the guy falling, but then he slows, there is a big whistling sound of wind, and the guy slowly blows right back up into the bar. The man is astonished, and at the urging of the other guy, he screws up his courage and jumps out the window. "AAAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHH!" SPLAT! The man is dead on the sidewalk far below. The bartender leans over to the guy and says, "Jesus, Superman, you sure are a mean drunk." And that is the basic premise of The Boys. America, and only America, is blessed with countless superheroes, knowns as "Supes". For some reason revealed farther along, no other country has any supers. At the top of the Superhero heap are "The Seven". And the Seven are managed by a company called Vought. Managed in the same way all celebrities are. But it turns out The Seven are not quite the wholesome, god-fearing, selfless images they project to their adoring public. They have a mean streak. And that is where The Boys come in. A ragtag collection of misfit men who are out to take The Seven down. How do mere mortals take on superheroes with paranormal powers? Well, that's what's so fun about this show, isn't it. I like this show, although the blood and guts peg the gore meter. If you don't have a strong stomach, you will not like this show. Not kidding. This is a gory show. And there is a lot of nudity, but it is all male nudity. For the ladies, I guess. Because girls don't ordinarily watch superhero movies or shows. So I guess that's why all the full frontal male nudity in this one.
