‘The Boys’ Review: The Nihilistic, Cruel, Heartless Superhero Show We Probably Deserve The Boys, Amazon’s new anti-superhero series, is so nihilistic and cruel that it’s either unbearable, or the perfect show for the current era we’re in. There’s a longstanding argument about whether or not entertainment loaded with unlikable characters can be enjoyed. It can – as long as the characters are well drawn, and there’s at least some specter of empathy lurking beneath it all. The Boys is not a show like that. It is void of hope, and void of heart. But that’s also the point.

This July, winter came to the sweltering heat of Nashville, Tennessee, for the third annual Con of Thrones. Or at least, crowds of fans dressed for winter did, as cosplayers in full plate armor and enough furs to stay warm beyond the Wall braved temperature highs of over 90 degrees Fahrenheit to make it to the air-conditioned sanctuary of the Music City Center. There were giants, wolves, and practically every iteration of Sansa Stark seasons one through eight.

I know we’re in the throes of Peak TV and there are more shows to watch than ever, but if you haven’t given Netflix’s Dear White People a try yet, you’re missing out on one of the streaming service’s best original series.
