The Boys (S1) - A Revealing Picture of Western Culture

Released Sunday, 18th August 2019
 1 person rated this episode

Cinema is crawling with them. You can't escape them. Superheroes are everywhere, and their mythos has gone from strictly nerd culture to passive general knowledge. From grand selfless acts to amazing feats of strength, a superhero represents truth and justice the world over.

And yet, we live in a world that feels sick, hopeless, and cynical. 'Things can't get worse than they already are, because they're already the worst they've been.' That sort of attitude permeates the culture around us, and at times, it's so painfully aggressive, we can't help but think the same. Where does this worldview come from, and why do we resonate so well with it?

The Boys contains a harsh reality where hope and faith seem elementary, but that's not all it harbors. There's something smart about The Boys, and it's begging to be talked about.

Cinematic Doctrine is testing out a new release schedule, but you can still expect episodes to release on Wednesday.

The Boys is Rated TV-MA. It contains nudity, sexual content, violence/gore, and pervasive and provocative language. I recommend reading the IMDB Parent's Guide.

It features Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, and Elisabeth Shue.

Created by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogan.
