    The pretty much eats shit from the get go. His friends with benefits dolphin goes splat while he was trying to rescue it. Mr lobsters gets the knife, he pretty much gets finger fucked in the gills against his will. Everyone in the 7thinks he’s a joke, he gets kicked out of the 7 and sent to a mid west town where there is only a small shallow lake. Had a mental breakdown and shaved his head and on top of all that he is noticeably scared shitless of starlight. He knows he can’t take her in a 1v1 . By the end of the season, despite knowing what a piece of shit he is I started to kinda feel sorry for him.

      Are you kidding me? Blac Noir has the perfect comedic timing. The scene with him bogart'ing the pianist, and to go on playing classical music? Perfection. Or the scene where Homelander gives him kudos for doing a good job while he's on the verge of ripping the entire room to shreds. Everyone is in fear, and Black Noir is just there all calm and stoic. Hilarious.

              In the comics, the airplane scene was supposed to be 9/11. Yep.

                Preacher ain't too bad honestly the hype just died down really quickly for some reason.

                      No, STFU just because it was done wrong doesn't mean Superman isn't THE BEST character to make a dark philosophical movie about..

                                Jay should give the comics a read, too. They went different directions, but I'm excited for Season 2 of this. Can't wait to see where it goes.

                                  "Preacher" is weird.
                                  by design, it is very religious, but the things it has to say? NOPE, that shit won't fly in 2019.

                                  too many Religious FANatics around, if that series get popular... it will get destroyed in the spot.

                                          They renewed the show for a second season before they even premiered the first season, so it'll be back.

                                              “The flash who runs near the speed of light” the flash is way faster than light he actually outran death himself he is basically so fast that speed as a concept doesn’t really make sense or apply to him

                                                Black Noir (in the comics) was a clone of Homelaner, bred to kill Homelander, if he ever got out of control. I dont think this is a spoiler because the show kind of combined the two into Homelander's character. HOWEVER, his character may be more than he appears, which actually works with his, behind-the-scenes nature.

                                                  Watch Preacher and do this. I really like it, but don't know the comic. Would love your thoughts on it ☺️

                                                      This is one of those TV shows where I hope they have a rough story set out and a plan to end it after X number of seasons. If they Walking Dead this I'll be annoyed because the first season was really good.

                                                          I think that if this show goes the way that Supernatural has, that it will end up a disappointing mess.

                                                                              FredrickTesla  2 months back

                                                                              The show was wasted potential written for stupid people and those who don't actually read comics. This was evident by the end of episode 2, when their best solution after hours of thinking about it, for how to kill a man who could form an indestructible shell around himself is to put C4 up his butt. Things that also would have worked and they should have thought of mere minutes into capturing him: Make him drink gallons of bleach/antifreeze, hook a hose up to the exhaust pipe of a car and pump carbon monoxide into the room. Simplest solution: literally just shock him, chain his hands, and put duct tape over his mouth and nose. This was a dumb problem with a dumb solution.

                                                                              2nd dumb problem with dumber solution: the plane crash. A dead instrument panel doesn't make the controls stop working, and both the pilot and co pilot have controls. Water landings are the most survivable types of crash, and planes like that are designed to withstand them and keep the people inside from dying. They didn't have to stop the plane, they just had to aim it right to distribute the energy from the impact evenly and slow it down a little, both of which could easily have been done by both heroes. They just became conveniently stupid and heartless/cowardly when they needed to be even worse bastards for the plot.

                                                                              There were some cool scenes and great ideas, but half-way through the series, everything gets bogged down with ham fisted MeToo bullshit and completely unnecessary and contrived plot tangents. (Either The Deep is a piece of shit, or he's a flawed man who did good and bad things, pick one. Don't tell me he's off the team, then keep cutting to fucking Iowa every other episode like we're supposed to give a damn. Redeem him, or discard him.) The ending also put me off of any subsequent seasons. There is no way they can write a season 2 that isn't going to be utter horse shit. You got heroes that don't want to act like heroes or villains, obvious villains who don't want to act like villains, and the two villains that were willing to be complete bastards just got reasons not to be. (Homelander might not be a rapist, he might have been used by the giant corporation the whole time, Billy's wife might just be a skank, Billy might have been going after the Seven for no good reason.) If there's a season 2, it's just going to be a soap opera, where everyone is halfway between being a good guy or a bad guy, there's going to be even more ham fisted 'current year' tangential bullshit, and our main character has no reason to continue his quest for revenge when his chance was right in front of him and he threw it away. It was a great idea for a story, too bad the writers have no idea how to write that story.

                                                                              • Shawn Clay

I feel so bad for him and he turns into a likable character... but rapist... also Homelander is such a great character with such a terrifying concept. Cause they’ve done evil Superman a few times and it’s always kinda something like him having a god complex, but what if Superman was a flat out a psychopath. That’s Homelander for you.

It ran four seasons, 38 episodes, and was the TV show Tarantino would’ve made if he made TV shows. All you, all day.

You go from loathing The Deep to feeling sympathetic toward him, because his fall from grace has taken him from this guy who could have just about anyone to being raped and abused and knowing that not only would no one care at this time because of his new reputation, but that he can't do anything about it.

They should've stayed single. One is a rape victim, and the other is avenging their loved one's death. Imagine if Marlin and Dory hooked up in Finding Nemo
