What happens when you cross demented nursery rhymes and Empire Strikes Back? This episode of The Boys. With the members of the show living out different plot lines, it doesn’t quite feel like the boys are back in town. But that doesn’t stop the classic “Boys” antics of beating the living daylights out of each other. We’re seeing great characterization of Soldier Boy and the not so great use of the “Chris Pratt calming right hand” technique and we’re asking you to stop.
It’s a shocking thing to be witness to Herogasm, let me tell you. What’s more shocking still is to be witness to Herogasm yet somehow underwhelmed by its depravity. Even though the event itself disappointed, the episode did not. Join us for the podcast for a discussion of what went wrong and what went oh so right.
The satire is hitting close to home. You may feel bad about yourself, but so long as you don’t sleep with Butcher, there is hope for you yet. We’re sensing some red herrings in the mix, who is telling the truth? And place your bets, who will be a smoky corpse or chunky human salsa by the end of the episode?
Homelander is…just the worst. Everyone seems to have some sort of plan, but not telling other people the plan…maybe that’s why it’ll take a whole five years to execute? Butcher is crunching V24 and gearing up for a fight with an opponent that may not be as super as expected. And if you want Jim and A.Ron to believe a character is dead, you better show the corpse. The tools are present to cripple and de-power Homelander, but is it possible?
We’re excited to welcome The Boys back. Stormfront has been Anakin-ed after Obi-Wan got the high ground. This show has violence, deception, and childhood trauma in spades in only the way The Boys can. Who is a pawn? Who is the controller? And who’s on the chopping block next? Members, grab some chips and a can of chunky human salsa and join us for our Twitch watch party.
The Boys are back. After almost two years, we’re ready for the next season of blood, guts, and fun. Can Karl Urban hold up to his own high standards? We’re hopeful that he will and for many other things. We’ll be covering each episode with podcasts dropping Friday nights. Send in your (non-comic related) feedback to email@example.com.

Listener beware, there be spoilers ahead. On this episode A.Ron is joined by the one and only Pete Peppers as they discuss all things Expanse. A.Ron’s been itching for a fellow human to discuss the books with, any other hardcore fans out there? As avid readers and watchers of the books and TV series, A.Ron and Pete have plenty of in depth opinions for fans of The Expanse to digest. They highly recommend the book, by the way.
This week A.Ron gives his impressions of Amazon Prime’s Reacher series. Then we talk about Severance through episode 6, and wrap up season two of The Righteous Gemstones.
We recently sat in on a massive 3-hour livestream with Pete Peppers and BenjaTV about the end of The Expanse. If you want to watch the video you can find it on Pete’s YouTube channel or if you’re a club member, you can listen to it here as a podcast. Enjoy!
Join us for one last episode of the Beltalowda podcast to celebrate the end of the perhaps the best sci-fi show to date. It’s a super-sized, feedback-packed episode where we quibble a little over the necessity of certain events and wonder what could have been but come out the other side appreciating what we did get.
