    I watched the first 3 last night. The direction on this is oddly flat for such wild material so it feels a bit underwhelming. A more Preacher-esque approach seems appropriate. On the whole though I'm into to it. It's nicely disgusting and Banshee is killing it as Homelander. What the fuck is going on with Karl Urban's accent though? I can't work out where he's suppossed to be from.

    On episode three.. The changes aren't bad. Right now just hoping the show lasts long enough to tell the entire story.

    I'm up to episode 5. I welcome the changes because I thought the comic was shit that had good ideas.

    Lady and I watched it. Never read the comics. I enjoyed it. Some seriously dark stuff in there. Also fun to do Hamilton and Toronto site spotting; CGI Roy Thompson Hall is awesome.

    Finished it last night. I thought it was overall really good, some flaws to be sure - some of the music choices were too obvious and familiar and the comedy stuff with The Deep annoyed me - but still a really good show. The last episode was awesome and sets up what should be a compelling season 2.

    Looks like Amazon did request once scene be removed.

    Odd they'd have an issue with that. There must be something in the air. Culikns brother did the same scene in Succession earlier in the year. Finishes with him wiping cum off the glass from memory. No one blinked at that one.

    Maybe the Superman Stand-in's jizz is so powerful when it falls it kills people? Then he screams "Dropping loads!" Like Evan Stone.
