If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/26/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Overnight last night, Amazon released the entire first season of The Boys. It’s an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes (who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as Gods) abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven, and Vought (the multi-billion-dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes and covers up all of their dirty secrets).

The Boys are Hughie (Jack Quaid, The Hunger Games), Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, Star Trek), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso, Detroit), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, Hostages), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, Suicide Squad). Other cast includes Antony Starr (American Gothic, Banshee), Chace Crawford (Blood & Oil, Gossip Girl), Dominique McElligott (The Astronaut Wives Club, Hell on Wheels, The Last Tycoon, The Money), Elisabeth Shue (CSI, Constance), Erin Moriarty (Red Widow, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Controversy), Jessie T. Usher (Survivor’s Remorse), & Nathan Mitchell. Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible Fallout) guest stars as Hughie’s father.

I’m not a big fan of superhero shows/movies, but this seems like a fun twist on the genre, and I like the cast. I love Karl Urban, Laz Alonso, & Elisabeth Shue, so I’m looking forward to seeing what they can do in this genre.

Check it out now on Amazon Prime.

I’ll also be watching Sugar Rush.
