Season 3 is over and while the finale wasn’t exactly to our tastes, it was a pretty good season overall. We’re back for one final podcast to consider your thoughts before we close the book on this season.
Ouch. A lot of people avoided becoming chunky salsa, and we’re actually disappointed. The episode had to pack in A LOT of information to wrap up the season full of psychopaths and potential patricide. Between the smackdowns, The Deep’s stoic murder felt too tame and that’s when we know that The Boys has corrupted our brains. And, um, where did Stan Edgar go?! Next season looks like it might be a return to a similar place as Season 2.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is more Marvel fare and delivers exactly what you’d expect, but Sam Raimi is in full Raimi form with enough of a twist to keep it interesting. It’s just too bad that it’s co-protagonist is a MacGuffin. Join us for the podcast to hear our non-spoiler thoughts and what we think about the trailers for upcoming movies then, if you’re a club member, stick around for the full spoiler review.
The Batman is the darkest take on a Batman movie yet. It’s also a familiar Batman story, with some minor updates and a few twists. It has an excellent cast, (yes, Robert Pattinson is a good Batman) a memorable score, and it looks fantastic. Does all this add up to a great Batman movie? Check out the podcast to find out. If you’re a Club Bald Move member stick around for the full spoilers after the trailer talk.
