The thing that really annoyed me in it was Butcher's (Karl Urban) Cockney accent floating in and out. I don't know why he just couldn't use his normal NZ accent, seeing as that was prevalent most of the time anyway.
But if he wasn't English how would we get the random Spice Girls references? ;)

Great first season. Really enjoyed it. I'm not a huge fan of the superhero genre movies. I've only really loved Nolan's Batmans and Watchmen and a couple of other things. I don't really go out of the way to watch them when they come out these days.
I found this really impressive and compelling. The dialogue and action well balanced. The plane scene was really something else. Also the tv show Banshee was a guilty pleasure of mine so really rated Anthony Starr's performance here. Homelander is diabolical!
Dick Van Dyke would be impressed by that accent from Karl Urban lol.
The Deep lmoaooooo

The end felt like there was another episode to go, i went looking to make sure i didn't miss anything.

But best line ever
"Where are you going"
"Home"
"You ain't going anywhere you just blew some campaigner up with a bomb we shoved up his ass"

Finished, love it. Best show I've seen in a few years - when I first had that thought I did a double take thinking nah that can't possibly be right. Crunched the numbers and yep, can't think of anything I like more that's come out recently. Would agree with whoever said its probably more black comedy than drama. Actors aren't gonna win any awards but I reckon most are serviceable enough, Homelander is great and thought Hughie/Starlight did a lot of the heavy lifting fairly believably.

Season 2 when!? Gimme.

Seen 4 episodes and It's amazing, The dolphin scene might be the greatest scene in television history.
Haha yep, I lost it. That, and when Butcher weaponises the laser eyes baby. Knew I was completely in :tearsofjoy:
