If you are a fan of The Boys since the release of the first season and you follow the news related to the series, what follows should not surprise you too much. The Amazon Prime Series the most trash concerning superheroes is used to facing controversies indeed, controversies which relate to the artistic choices of Eric Kripkethe showrunner of the series, who regularly proves to us that he has no limits when it comes to criticizing certain aspects of society. And it is always for the same reasons that Internet users rise up; which does not impact the showrunner in the least, who could even, if we know the character, well and truly revel in the show in progress.
In 2020, when the publication of season 2 of The Boys, a wave of criticism regarding the weekly release rate of episodes had hit the show. We could then read, in comments on the Amazon Prime platform, things like: “It’s 2020… We don’t want offbeat episode releases! It’s a shame. I was looking forward to watching it… Now I’m just going to wait for it to be canceled before I can watch it without any interruptions”, or : “Shift the broadcast of episodes? The best thing about Prime TV is the binge-watching factor. It’s a bad joke, you just set sail for failure”.
The release rate of episodes had been taken down by part of the public, but this year, it seems that it is more the political side of the show which is attacked. Among other things of course, since, as you will be able to see, the sulfurous series with your favorite Supes still much talked about.
Season 3 of the boys is experiencing a wave of bad reviews
The first three episodes of season 3 of The Boys premiered on Amazon Prime Video last week, and the release came with a slew of 1-star reviews only. Naturally, AmazonPrime should have expected some fans to be upset with the content offered, but this wave of bad reviews still raises questions.
Among those who substantiated their poor ratings, many complained about the series’ release schedule (which is weekly), and the abundance of male nudity present in the early episodes. Among the reviews of season 3, some netizens also complained that “the series suddenly becomes political”. We let you discover an anthology of comments on the subject :
VERY political and VERY anti-masculine. There are plenty of men’s butts and sausages! Have fun.
I know you are probably reading this.
I’m just going to go ahead and tell you this: if you care about your future and want to be remembered as a great actor, avoid nonsense and garbage like this. Accept the contract and run away from the trash like season 3 of this series. Season 2 was also shit.
In 10 years, no one will care or remember what you did here. People will look at the show the same way we look at the pregnant man emoji: with bewilderment.
Already in the part of the first episode a bunch of useless sex stuff, but BE CAREFUL, after the first 10 minutes in there is a weird gay scene where if you’re prude or homophobic or something like that you should probably jump in minute 15 or 20. Please don’t let your kids watch this.
Seriously, I’m not. The human body does not have to be hidden. So when I say I found it too vulgar and sexually explicit, that’s too much. It got to the level of disgust and I’m not here for that.
Communist, Marxist, Leftist, Bolshevik GARBAGE!! IT’S SAD !!! A question about who runs the media and controls what we are allowed to think, say and hear?
Whether “any criticism is welcome”as they say, however, it is curious to point out negatively, in the third season of a series deliberately committed to violence, this same violence, and so to speak, his bias. The same goes for its rate of publication, now deeply rooted in the collective consciousness, and for nudity, which we knew was ubiquitous, especially following all our articles on the adaptation of the Herogasm. Likewise, the political satire began as early as season 1 of the series; this topic is therefore not new.
For the moment, despite this wave of indignation aroused by season 3, the latter has a score of 96% on Rotten Tomatoessince the wave of indignation in question, presented above, was mainly measured in Amazon Prime reviews. The critical consensus, far from the opinions above, is for the moment the following:
Managing to up the ante on what was already one of television’s most daring satires, the third season of The Boys is at once invigorating, visceral and wickedly clever.
