The Boys is an amazingly good show. It has two completed seasons and the third is still going on. There are a total of eight episodes in each season.

A well-written programme with a solid sense of pacing and a lot of limits being pushed. Despite a few clichés, seasons are engrossing from beginning to end. The action moments are a lot of fun, and they’re vicious and gory enough. The dialogues are wonderful, the direction is fantastic, the cinematography is superb, and the music is fantastic.The entire celebrity cast gives outstanding performances.
The Season one establishes/acts as a foundation, and there is never a dull moment during the episode span. The plot is appropriate for its genre.Expectations for the second season were high as stated by viewers.
