    Goyslop: the show

      Anonymous

      It is truly the fast food version of goyslop and I cannot believe people on this site actually enjoy watching this past the first season. It should've been canceled after that due to some negligence or Amazon pulling the plug. the first season had it own tone and style. Sometimes dead is better than whatever shit this turn out to be.

      Forgot to end this with:
      but instead Season 3 was some asinine plot about how Soldier Boy being a douchebag and a sexist somehow makes working with him to eliminate a literal existential threat to the human race a non-starter, and we're supposed to side with the people who sabotage the *only* effective plan to neutralize Homelander that anybody in the series has ever come up with.

      >sexist somehow makes working with him to eliminate a literal existential threat to the human race a non-starter,
      This is what pisses me off the most for people defending this slop. It made the entire cast into morons in order for it to end the season like that. Homelander is practically unstoppable unless you have a whole bunch of similar powered supers ganging up on him. He have threaten the country and have the means to vaporize a city in less than an hour, yet the whole cast decided to go after the only guy who can stop him?! Soldier boy had a known weakness and had less destructive power compared to homelander. It doesn't make sense to go after him before he could take down the biggest threat to the planet.

      This israelite series became that exact thing it was parodying from.

        yes ive read the comics in its entirerty and while way too try-hard edgy at some points, is still not that bad, nonetheless the show branches out from the comics significantly that the status of the comics holds little to no relevancy when discussing the show, which despite what this board may think, is a pretty good and enjoyable show, and yes it has its flaws, as every other tv show in existence does, big deal.

            > because it's so fricking ridiculous but tries to stay consistent
            not at all, there are plenty of things that dont add up and/or are shitty writing in the comics, for example, when they take the compound v, the extent of the powers they get is all the same, just super strength and some form of invincibility. yet they able to pretty easily defeat other supes who have not only had their powers since birth but also have additional specific powers on top of that.
            in the show, they at least give them their own specific powers and dont instantly make them super op from them.
            if by "consistency" in the comics, you mean badly written edgy-ness, then sure. truly, the only good thing the comics did was the plot twist at the end where black nori was just a clone.
            >The show is just fricking nothing with no edge, no story or plot at all while trying to be appealing
            very incorrect, especially if you've kept up with the show recently (and the spin off), there's whole new storylines set up for the newest season next month.

                also how I define progress is by observing the story. how far have the characters grown, where are the events of things at? so far it's been status quo except homelander has a kid and his team is even more afraid of him. "The Boys" might be dying and Starlight is officially one of them now. Basically no fricking difference

                this is a double edged sword though, i feel like just as many people, if not more, would have complaints about the show if they made more significant progress on Homelander and how to take him down, instead of how you put it "his team is even more afraid of him."
                the whole main driving point of the plot, which is Homelander, would be gone if there was ways found to take him down with ease/ if he wasn't consistently showcasing his superior power on the other characters.
                you dont write in a main antagonist in a show then have him be easily defeat-able and have the protags not fear him, then he's not a well written antagonist.

                I would incredibly disagree with that notion. look if homelander is the Ace in the hole you want to save for the final season that's great but you need to give the boys more interesting things to do than play repeat each season.
                The central plot around the show is the boys versus the heroes. However the way that manifest is up to the writers but they haven't gone in any significant directions. homelander is already terrifying. we've been shown that he's unhinged and ready to kill basically everybody if he's tweaked out even just a little bit more. The fact of the matter is they don't know where to go with that.

                homelander can keep being the ace of the hall but they need something else to focus on then

                except they arent doing the same thing over and over again. no shit they'll consistently keep trying to take down Homelander throughout it all since yet again, that's one of the driving parts of the plot, but so many other things also come into play and so many new things happen like the introduction of stormfront, soldier boy's revenge on his old team, etc etc. it isn't as repetitive as you say.

                >literally one of the main contributors to trying to get him out of power in the later seasons
                NTA but The Boys had a plan to kill Homelander. They recruited Soldier Boy and cornered him at Herogasm. Starlight and a suped-up MM were both there and witnessed this plan, and if they had intervened it probably would have worked and Homelander would be neutralized.
                MM has the excuse that he's unironically mentally ill in ways that Soldier Boy caused and is a focus of. Starlight just explicitly decided to refuse to work with him for no reason.
                I would be more sympathetic to Starlight if she had any plan at all to neutralize Homelander but she just straight up doesn't. It would unironically be in-character for her to say something like "even Homelander can be redeemed" and try to reach him or something gay like that, but she just straight up has zero plan to deal with him, and makes the *informed* choice to sabotage the *only* effective plan that anybody has.

                >Starlight and a suped-up MM were both there and witnessed this plan, and if they had intervened it probably would have worked and Homelander would be neutralized.
                M.M never took compound V, and he was mainly there for soldier boy, which even that failed, that whole arc of M.M wanting to kill Soldier boy was pure moronation and not even i get it.
                as for Starlight, she didnt just decide not to help take down Homelander at herogasm, she acted the way she did because the fight was going to occur at a crowded location and she wanted to avoid mass death.

                you're autistic. I'm obviously not expecting them to kill homelander.

                its almost as if Homelander is significantly more powerful than any other supe in almost every way possible, the show even makes a point to show that other supes (even relevant ones like Maeve and A-Train) are afraid of him. and as for the other supes dying, it wasnt due to incompetence but either logical thinking that outplayed them or because they were drugged up not paying attention.

                they practically are. there has been no significant advancement of the story or characters. deny that all you want but look at where they were at the end of season 1 and where they are now. those are literally just red fricking herrings to distract you from the overall problem. Those can be obstacles but they should shape how the overall core of the plot has changed. BB had a great example of this with Gus. Hell The Boys show runner Eric Kripke did it with supernatural. The first 5 seasons of that show are very purposeful and lead to a natural conclusion.

                Yes they've made the same point over and over again. He's crazy, he's strong, his presence terrifies his team and the boys to a degree. We fricking get it. Now they need to do something with him. Anything. Or if not they need to shift the focus to undermining him. Literally anything that doesn't just result in him remaining stagnant. again the fact that the boys as a team have not killed any targeted superhero aside from Translucent makes them basically irrelevant

                it seems you think that their attempts to ever successfully take down Homelander means that there is no story or plot development, which is an absurd way to look at it. it's an ongoing show, not a one story per episode cartoon. it wouldn tbe realisitc if they tried one or two things and they worked.
                you say you "get" that Homelander is proven time and time again to be a strong character yet complain when he is just that. it's like you want his character to be both strong and easily defeat-able at once, it makes no sense.

                because that's the entierty of his character, starlight has powers and Butcher has been doing illegal shit for years now, Hughie is just some random guy who get sucked up in it all, why would he be anything more than what he's been so far? wouldn't be realistic if he adapted instantly and became some op badass.
                't die due to literal token status
                kek, you clearly werent watching the show, it clearly shows that Soldier Boy's beam only takes away powers from supes (as shown with kimiko) why would Maeve die when we already saw that the thing she endured was already survived by another supe?

                the only good points you made here were:
                on starlight and kimiko, although I think kimiko's actions can be explained by how she isnt just killing for fun, but rather is killing those who have wronged her/ the group. it's not like she's using it for malice.

                I'm paraphrasing but he basically says if you keep fricking with me and destroy my reputation I will destroy the entire country and then the world yet she decides to live stream him to an audience later on seemingly forgetting that little aspect. It's completely reckless.

                she can somehow empathize and understand kamiko wanting to protect frenchie but God forbid understand the perspective for Hughie. keep in mind Huey's main motivation for protecting her in the first place is not only because she's his girlfriend but she literally was on the phone earlier in the season crying about homelander desperate for him to think of a solution. It seems pretty contradictory to condemn him for wanting to protect you and chalk it up to toxic masculinity but then tell kamiko it's fine for her to go out of a way to protect frenchie at the detriment of herself and him.

                because that's called a character arc. they were hinting at that in the beginning. Hughie is a massive pussy and the whole show's natural evolution form is to make him braver. It's why he stands up to homelander in the beginning of the season when homelander calls Starlight a good frick. He doesn't back down and at that point he's powerless. instead the show negates that for literally no fricking reason. The entirety of his character isn't to play second fiddle It's to be a member of the boys. The softer more empathetic one but a boy member nonetheless. It's not like it happened overnight It was a natural progression.

                I don't know if you got but they both fell out of 100 ft building and she was powerless at that moment The fact that she survived is fricking absurd and the people who wrote the show admitted as much because they said they didn't want to kill an LGBT character. like damn near word for word that's what they said

          >Trumplander
          See for the first 2 seasons he wasn't like that. Maybe the writers were shooting for it but I didn't get the impression that they were.
          In season 3 they got triggered because people were watching their show wrong and threw all their goodwill out the window with Trumplander.
          The premise of the show is that The Boys hunt rogue supes. Homelander is the biggest and baddest Supe, but they could have killed him and replaced him with a new villain (like, as I suggested, a rogue Soldier Boy. Soldier Boy is strictly speaking weaker than Homelander and it's been demonstrated that he can theoretically be contained, but he's smarter and more charistmatic so he could be a threat in different ways).
          I was speculating on directions that this show could have taken with better writers. I'm well aware that in its current state it's probably unsalvageable.

        The show is hard carried by Karl Urban and Homelander, and would be trash without either of them. Soldier boy was too straight up likeable to replace homelander as the antagonist. they did fumble his conclusion though.

      It's actually astounding how efficiently the writers of this show burned its goodwill.
      Like, if I, knowing nothing about it, saw a post on /misc/ describing the downfall of The Boys, I would dismiss it as some triggered homosexual crying to his safe space because the show featured an interracial couple.
      But no, the writers of The Boys genuinely are living strawmen.

    This show is great.
    The fan favorite characters are the ones the writers try really hard to make you hate. And no matter how sympathetic they make the other ones (Hughie, Kimiko, Frenchie, etc), no one gives a shit about them.
    It's a show that's only possible in the current era, where an anti-talent industry force their agenda on the fans they hate.

      please tell me that's not what she looks like

      it seems you think that their attempts to ever successfully take down Homelander means that there is no story or plot development, which is an absurd way to look at it. it's an ongoing show, not a one story per episode cartoon. it wouldn tbe realisitc if they tried one or two things and they worked.
      you say you "get" that Homelander is proven time and time again to be a strong character yet complain when he is just that. it's like you want his character to be both strong and easily defeat-able at once, it makes no sense.

      I'm saying there's no story or plot development because they cyclically repeat the same patterns over and over again. Again the characters are pretty much in the same place they were in season 1. A story is happening but it's not evolving. It's getting older but not maturing so to speak.

      I'm not complaining that homelander is a strong character. I'm complaining because the show hasn't done anything interesting with him aside from pointing that out. There's been no strategic undermining of him or his team from the boys. The only significant advancement they've made was getting temp v and fighting him head-on. again look at breaking bad in relation to how they treat Gus. Gus is a significant threat yet they lay out a possible and intriguing trail that leads to his downfall.

      What I want is for his character to evolve. I want all of them to evolve. no more unnecessary repeats of his hallucinations or craziness we already know he has. What is he going to do going forward that isn't just a retread of previous seasons. same thing for the boys. these are the questions I want the writers to ask and answer.

        but its still entertaining so is it really that bad? especially since they, like you brought up with BB and gus, set up a pretty solid seeming plan to take down not only Homelander but supes in general in the new season with said virus that can kill supes.
        and i still dont get what you mean by no development/evolving since the attempts/ plans of taking down Homelander have literally progressed with proper reason in relation to what has happened in the plot/ new information learned by the characters. you're acting like they’re having the character try the same exact thing over and over again.

        • 3 weeks ago

          Yes because it undermines the entertainment aspect of it. don't confuse what BB did with TB by the way. breaking bad thoroughly fleshed it out whereas the boys have been putting up artificial roadblocks to create tension. I'd wager the only reason we're getting anything about some superhero virus is because of how far we are season wise into the show.

          I'm saying the literal story beats of each season have been repeating the exact same thing. The Boys enact a plan to get homelander, it fails, they go back to the drawing board. It's been the exact same pattern. It's been moving at a snails pace.

          Season 1: Billy blows up Homelander. It fails. We're introduced to Ryan and Stormfront

          Season 2: Stormfront is dead and Ryan's taken away

          Season 3: Ryan is with Homelander.

          These have been the biggest changes overall. Otherwise the boys are still the same people they were in season 1&2
          The members of the seven with the exception of a-train and black noir are the same. Now they have another character (The AOC stand in) who's essentially going to act as one of the other characters that were made just for that season. It's entire cyclical. They're generally right back where they started at the beginning of every season.

          meanwhile to put this into perspective Eric kripke who created supernatural and is the show runner for the boys at season 1 through 3 focus on main character's father coming back dying, one of the main characters selling their soul and then finding a way to beat the clock. That's progression, that's evolution. There's a continuous path. The same cannot be said for the boys

            there is no middle ground to be met here, your stuck on this hill that not succeeding in taking down Homelander is the equal to no development happening in the story even when countless things have changed, characters have died, new characters have been introduced, new info discovered, and so much more.

              If they don't wanna kill Homelander then give The Boys another goal that isn't just them failing over and over again. Literally anything. Until then they're going to keep the wash rinse and repeat cycle going while morons like you prop the numbers up.

              New shit being added doesn't matter if it doesn't substantially and fundamentally affect the change of anything. They can throw 100 new things out in the new season but I'll wager a guess that at the end of it, the boys are gonna fail to kill Homelander after spending the entire season on a bullshit pointless side mission. Homelander is gonna be even crazier with nothing done differently to him. If you like watching jingly keys good for you but it's not good television

                this is literally what you sound like. who cares if their plans so far have failed? it wouldnt make sense why they would suddenly just change plans and change targets, it makes perfect sense why they'd try again. it'd be ridiculously cliche and holly-wood if they managed to succeed in their 2nd attempt or smthing.

If the show is nothing other than watching morons fail and do nothing interesting then it's fricking boring and I might as well wait until the last season of the show ever to see how they resolve things. them trying different ways to kill homelander isn't the problem btw, it's the fact that that's the only thing they do. it's not interesting

      This. The show writers fricked up by making the big baddies the most likable characters and then turning around and going “NOOOO you’re not supposed to adore these characters!” I turned both my mom and my girlfriend onto the boys early into season one and after season two I kinda dropped it but they both still adore the show and talk about it all the time, they both absolutely love Stormfront and she’s unironically both of their favorite character. My mom always goes “the show makes you want to see her as a bad guy but she’s so cute and clever I love her” and she desperately wants them to bring back some form of cyborg storefront, she was so upset when she gets BTFO’d at the end of season two and said they should have killed off that self righteous dyke Maeve instead. Her words not mine but yeah even to normal mainstream audiences they fricked the dynamics up real bad considering what it seems like they were actually going for. This ain’t it

                You're exaggerating. It might be disturbing sure, and on those grounds I suppose you could still say that it might not be a good idea to let a kid watch it. But the kind of paranoid reactions you and the other guy have are definitely unjustified.

                which side are you taking? if you as an adult can understand that something is disturbing, what would make you think that's agood idea to let your child watch? i literally looked up that movie he said his mother let him watch and its pretty damn gruesome, would easily terrify any child as young as 10. it's not good parenting at all, let alone "based" to let your kid watch that.

                My first rated R movies were saving private ryan and 127 hours. For some reason my parents wanted me to start in the deep end.

                Also got me COD: black ops so 10 year old me was playing that mission where Woods and Hudson stab sleeping vietcong in the heart

                And how young was anon when he watched it? He clearly says that he wasn't traumatized. So why are you sitting here getting your panties in a twist over it?

                > im not the one autistically throwing around the word "based" and pretending to be better by watching scary stuff as a kid.
                Yes, you're the one throwing a hissy fit and judging people's 'social character' through text on a screen while thinking the word 'based', which is not a serious word, is being used in a serious way. So, thats how its ironic. Because you're blowing things out of proportion.

                he said he was 10 which is insanely young to be watching such things
                >b-b-but he didnt saaaaay he was traumatized
                lmfao and? its not rare that childhood trauma often manifests in strange ways once that person gets older. i also suspect that anon may not even be old enough to be on here anyways, he seems very young still.
                >you're the one throwing a hissy fit and judging people's 'social character' through text on a screen
                he's the one that started judging me first, he started it.
                >while thinking the word 'based', which is not a serious word,
                in this context, yes it is seriously used.

                Yes, I suppose so. But you're not his therapist are you?

                >i also suspect that anon may not even be old enough to be on here anyways, he seems very young still.
                Another ironic statement.

                >he's the one that started judging me first, he started it.
                Okay, this is where you're right. But yours was a much bigger overreaction to his slight overreaction.

                >in this context, yes it is seriously used.
                It wasn't. This word is never used seriously. If you feel like it was, I can only imagine that there are times where you use it seriously. Which would make you the autist.

                I said I was 10 but it was probably more like late 11-ish if not 12. Idk man it was 20 years ago and clearly didn’t traumatize me the way autismanon insists it MUST have kek.

            i was wrong he's not gay, i still dont get how he "owns chudlander" though? like the guy who plays him is a great actor but his character isnt anything at all? he's not even a supe? he literally has nothing against Homelander, the only leverage he has is mentally which isnt that impressive since Homelander is kind of a man-child at some points.

    does the show even follow the comic plot? I thought the homelander / black noir twist was a good way to drive the plot and end the comic.

    Although apparently black noir is dead already?

      It's incredible how much of this show is dependent on shock value. No different with the actors for homelander and butcher. If Neuman true power is to manipulate blood, then couldn't she have just cause people to have heart attacks, brain aneurysms, organ failure, etc.Why make things needlessly bloody just to attract attention? I get it because these israelite writers can help themselves with their senseless depravity, but it doesn't make sense in-universe. Although you could say it made sense during the court case scene due to it being live for people to see.
