    A few comments on deviations from the comics

    S01.E08: You Found Me

    I felt more analogous to Stargirl, regardless of the costume, just based on her power set and he role as a young newcomer/replacement to Lamplighter(who, a least w/ the little we know about him at this point, feels a bit like a Green Lantern/Starman amalgam). Translucent doesn't doesn't have a real Justice League/DC counterpart, i felt like he was added to open the door to a line of invisibility gags that they wanted to do.

    1. Chase Crawford a more recognizable name than Karl Urban or Simon Pegg? Not even close. 2. The character is a play on Aqauman, whose been derided for years as a pretty useless character outside of the water by comic book fans. 3. Your really missing something. The Deep didn't just expose himself to her, he coerced a blowjob from her by by threatening to blackball her from The Seven and destroy her reputation. And he didn't act like it never happened, he openly mocked her at her first team meeting with his comment of how her new situation is "hard to swallow". If you have any doubt about that, her conversation with Hughie in the park makes it very clear that is what happened and what she did. He didn't simply "drop his pants so she could get a look at him"(as bad as that is on its own), he casting couched her into performing sexual acts.

    S05.E13: All's Well That Ends Well

    Yeah, I don't think pointing to that review holds any weight, they also claim Liv and Major are living on Zombie Island with "the Freylich children", who could not be zombified and who are all dead by that point.

    S01.E05: Good for the Soul

    I think it's a bit naive to go into a show based on a Garth Ennis property and not expect religion to be skewered...

    She reminds me of a young Kristy Swanson, especially her voice.

    S01.E01: The Name of the Game

    Idk, I think Pegg could handle it in a vacuum, but it would change his dynamic w/ Butcher a lot and even more w/ Annie(who I thought was great. I never really cared for her in Jessica Jones, but she nailed this). I can't see pairing a 50ish Pegg w/ 25 yr old Moriarty(who plays younger than that), and I don't think an aged up Annie would work, more so than an aged up Hughie. Urban is perfect as Butcher. I like the actor they have playing The Frenchman, but I kinda wish they wouldn't have changed his personality so much. There was something great about this ridiculously over the top affectionate Frenchman that was also a brutal killer.

    Simon is definitely too old for Hughie now, and while I like the nod, it kinda just just makes me disappointed in the Hughie they got. Maybe it's that I have a young Simon in my minds eye as Hughie, maybe it's making him a New Yorker(I'm sure it's much easier on the production and budget), but he just feels off.

    I need to rewatch that final showdown, but did we just see Butcher blow up a baby? Murdering innocent children is about as terrorist as you can get, and when you factor in that he knew damn well he wasn't going to kill Homelander w/ that blast, wtf? He had already gotten to the point that I can't see him as the good guy, but now I can't watch anyone that even works with him and be in their corner.

    Someday, sure. But he hasn't earned that yet. As we see, he ends up profiting off of his behavior.

    S04.E01: Spring Break Forever

    They might have overdone it just a bit, but i liked it. It really makes for a nice running theme w/ Veronica/Kristen. They adopted frak from Battlestar Galactica(along w/ a slew of other BSG references)and used it throughout season 3, Kristen is forced to say fork as a running gag on The Good Place, so it just fits to me. I might have liked it more of they had just gone ahead and used one of those substitutes. Implying that Veronica and Keith watch The Good Place, starring Kristen Bell, would be the most meta joke ever.

    I haven't seen anyone else comment on this yet, but am I the only one that found Leo inviting himself over to watch The Big Lewbowski incredibly pushy and borderline creepy? I just rewatched that scene, Veronica was immediately non-responsive to the idea(and her facial expressions definitely showed it) and he kept pushing it. I like Leo, but maybe I'm still colored by the initial creepiness of a sheriff's deputy going to a high school dance w/ a 17 yr old junior, I've never really shaken that off.

    He's paying kids to mug people at knifepoint(and this is an area where I side strongly w/ Veronica over Weavel). That is a violent crime. One that could EASILY turn deadly. Mug a few drunk college students at knifepoint, eventually that is going to go HORRIBLY bad. It's a shock no one had been injured or killed yet, as far as we know.

    Which didn't make sense, since he didn't remember saying it the next day. I like Logan, I've found the relationship entertaining, but I've always found the swooning over this speech odd, since he banged Kendall later that night.

    S01.E01: The Name of the Game

    It's a scene straight from the comic, and if anything it was toned down considerably. Which, considering it's Garth Ennis, shouldn't be surprising. His whole shtick is shock value. The comic series was originally sold as something that would "out-Preacher Preacher" in terms of violence, sex,and shock value
