      Haley Joel osment saw his own death Now that's funny

      Yeah I think I am done with comic book movies also. A dime a dozen at this point. But I think I will check out this one.

    3. Standing man

      Would've liked it more if the main character wasn't an absolute pushover. It made him so unrelatable.

    4. Lucha Jon

      Who the fuck is Garth Eenis?

    5. emchartreuse

      OMG! Please watch Preacher! It's created by super-fans Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and Garth Ennis approved. The actors are great and the characters are even somewhat of an improvement on the books. It's everything a Preacher fan could want. Watch it just to see a real live Cassidy, for fucking real! Binge and then tell us what you think, pleeese! Do it now... and I love you guys.

    6. Mitchell Arnold

      Speaking of Too Old To Die Young, I really need you guys to talk about it. I’m split on it like I’ve never been with a tv show before.

    7. SavageRush012

      The show can seem like it's trying to be mean for the sake of being mean, sometimes.

    8. 연설자유

      She got hit by "a train" - oh, I see what they did there.

    9. jeffnewmanactor

      Rich! I'm a huge fan of the Preacher comics as well (they got me back into comics after a long absence) but I have to tell you the AMC show is the REAL DEAL. It may be the best adaptation from panel to screen ever made. I may be just another mentally maladjusted mutant RLM fan, but I really think season one (at the very least) is well worth a watch. Keep up the great work! You guys are by far my favorite channel on US-new.

    10. Joe Pagram

      This show is brilliantly dark

    11. Lee

      Has anyone informed Jay and Rich that Amazon renewed The Boys before it aired?

    12. Flavius Retea

      Preacher is actually great!

    13. Skeletal33

      GREAT GREAT show. Nothing like it

    14. thoughfully lost

      great show but i thought preacher was dope

    15. Count Zero

      Nobody recommends Preacher? I f´cking do!

    16. Nick Ryan

      Jay thinks drug addiction is funny. My entire family died of marijuana use you insensitive prick!

    17. M S2

      A good show but again not the most faithful adaptation. I get it, the comic is hard core but that ending. Ugh. I felt like I was watching Dallas or Dynasty with the stupid emotionally driven cliffhanger ending. That kind of ruins Butchers character.

    18. karthikarn

      Please review Sacred Games on Netflix.

    19. Motivation Exceeds Me

      Bones' Kiwi accent comes through so hard it just sounds like a kiwi trying to do a British accent. But I'm guessing the States can't tell.

    20. M. P. Barnett

      Garth Anus.

    21. quexalcoatl somnium

      That's totally Rich's basement apartment.

    22. Tumbles

      Man I don't know if you guys read but you gotta check out Worm, it's available to read free online

    23. Catseman

      The PReacher show is kind of better than the comic tbh

    24. earlallison

      Meh. Some of the books were semi-interesting, but it's Ennis' usual "I hate superheroes and the stranglehold they have on comics" with a heaping helping of "Hard men making hard choices." The books went on too long, guess we'll see how the show goes.

    25. Keepper

      Talk about Cobra Kai you hack frauds!

    26. Strike

      It is amazing that superhero Rich Evans managed to take some time out of his schedule to converse with the mortals about a superhero show

    27. light saberAddiCt

      Out of all of Snyder's screw ups in the DC movies, I actually had no problem with Superman killing Zod. He was given a choice, let Zod kill a family, or end him. Seriously, WTF would you have done? I hate to say it, but Man of Steel was the only decent movie he did in the DC, and that is saying very little. Snyder is an overrated director, and I think it is hilarious that everyone hated him, hated what he was doing to DC, then when he leaves, acts as though his cut would have been great. Hypocrite anyone?

    28. Mike Miller

      Really, that's when you decide to put the spoilers warning in?!?

    29. PCGamer688

      Ya'll should watch Preacher. Its fucking phenomenal

    30. Game Warrior

      Preacher is a good show

    31. Chris Storrer

      I feel like Watchmen covered all this territory already.

      1. Nineteen1900Hundred

        Watchmen and Boys have some crossover, like "fucked up versions of heroes from DC or Marvel", shocking violence and very dark humor, but the similarities end there, really.

      2. Ryan McWhinnie

        Except The Boys is actually good

    32. Forkez

      Preacher was pretty good. Though I didn't read the original comic.

    33. Tom Birmingham

      i recommend Preacher to everyone and I think the readdaption is great. It's like a 10 inch dick, you gotta see it to believe it.

    34. Anthony Lawson

      You are so wrong Rich. Preacher goes there...I can't believe the things they actually keep from the comic. It is not a direct translation...but it 100% keeps the essence of the comic.

      1. VolV8

        Dinosaur eating it's own shit...

      2. infant jones

        fighting over the genesis capsule that was previously up the ass of the man who's exploded body is currently being mud wrestled in was definitely Going The Lengths

      3. Levi Johnson

        Can confirm. The first season is a slow build-up and a bit tame, also set before the series until the finale, but once season 2 starts they’re nearly adapting the comics 1:1. The lack of discourse around the show works completely in its favour; if they can get away with a Jesus sex scene they can get away with anything

    35. Matthew Blom

      Homelander is the best superhero (villain) since The Comedian. Antony Starr needs an Emmy. He is one of the best psychopaths on film.

      1. jcardboard

        Yep. The last episode in particular he made my skin crawl. It's like Norman Bates with superpowers.

    36. Steve Walker

      How about the anti-religious speech in episode 5? And Amazon turning off comments because their blatant bigotry via heavy-handed exposition was earning them 1 star reviews? The characters might as well turn to the camera and say "We interrupt this show to bring you opinions from the writers, on how much they hate religion." Telling people how much you hate religious groups is so woke. So progressive.

      1. Teras_Kasi

        You sure it's Garth Ennis and not just the writers?

    37. Carl Manvers

      Might have been nicer if they'd closer to the source material. But ok. It was a bit too current year.

    38. A Diversion

      Just wanted to let you guys know that I simply love what you're doing. Watching your reviews of films I've watched gives me sometimes better insight into them. Watching reviews of things I haven't watched might either make me wanna watch them or just at least be aware of what that thing is about. I've learned so much from this channel and after years of following you I still look forward to every new video!

    39. durban73 37nabrud

      I watch Preacher and I mostly love it. The first season is too slow but the rest is great. I recommend it all the time and no one takes me up on it.

    40. TechMetalRules

      Second season was greenlit before the first even aired.

    41. Silverbreaker

      dark noir is a clone of homelander who rescued butcher - later he will kill homelander and than butcher will kill dark noir with the drug, before dark noir will kill the president. butcher will than kill the whole boys-crew and andy will kill butcher in the end, before butcher can detonate his anti-hero-virus. read the comic

    42. Rowan Atkinson

      Having tried the comic run and bouncing off hard (seriously this series is downright wholesome in comparison) I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised by this show.

      1. Rowan Atkinson

        "The whole show goes so much darker than I expected!" Yeah don't read the comic run. It's downright gratuitous.

    43. T.J.Ball.

      Preacher the show is great. Seriously

    44. sweetamishbutter7

      I don't really think it ended on a cliffhanger. They answer enough questions to be satisfying. You find out what happened to Butchers wife and it wraps up the thread with Starlight and Hugh's drama. It leaves enough to go on next season with the Deep and Supervillians. I don't really see why anyone would be disappointed with this ending. Had it ended when he pulled the C4 trigger then I'd say it was a cliffhanger.

    45. Giovanni Ahrcherii

      Not to be "that guy" but isn't the point of the comicbook villains who have a powerset that mirrors the main protagonist to show what happens when those abilities are in the hands of the corrupt & the incompetant? It stuns me Reverse Flash has never vaporized anyone like A-Train did. It's usually just a lot of bloodless but still unsettling methods.

    46. A Syme

      Zack Snyder obviously wanted to do Miracleman - but tried to apply that character to superman. And it was... weird.

    47. Justin

      15:15 Did Jay just describe an 8 hour season of Television as like "a short movie"??

      1. Ethan Brown

        He meant each episode goofy

    48. Springfield IL Uketopians

      "The Boys" is like "The Tick" as interpreted by Bukowski.

    49. Alex Ander

      You guys in the comments are the real heroes!

    50. Michael Smith

      The show was good but had a number of flaws that dragged it down for me.

    51. Robby Millsap

      Jay math: "There are 8 episodes, an hour each, it's like a short movie."

      1. A Ham

        @NerdyTurd307 No, I think he's just waggling his patrish cred around. "Oh yeah I watch Andy Warhol's "Empire" at least twice a year and catch something new every time."

      2. NerdyTurd307

        I think Jay meant each episode is a short movie, not the entire season.

    52. Franco Baggage

      Rich and Jay sit down to give their general thoughts on the Amazon series The Boys, a superhero story for people that are sick of superheroes.

    53. Neil Herceg

      Okay I'm not sure if I can watch this without mr. Plinkett

    54. Apoptosis Jones

      They slaughtered other Ennis comics. I don't know if I should care. I read the boys, I think that's enough.

    55. The Nihilist Geek

      In the comicbook, the plane was the one that was going to hit the twin towers

    56. Chad Adams

      if you're gonna do a comic book adaption do Doom Patrol, much better show than the boys.

    57. Rainbow Factory

      I'm fatigued over your superhero fatigue. Comes up every time... blaaaaaarg.

      1. Nineteen1900Hundred

        Yeah honestly, I'm fatigued from garbage movies like Batman V Superman or The Last Jedi. I don't care what genre or franchise, if is great I'm not fatigued.

    58. Dasveiner

      17:06

    59. Black Void Hell

      15:54 rich saying it's great after Jay just said many of children got murdered is the funniest shit ever lol

    60. Iroga

      Is Rich and Jay talks about replacing Rich and Jay?

    61. Sweet Bro

      I can assure you, Black Noir has much more to do later in.

    62. Horacio A. Baca Amenábar

      Bring Mike back, you couple of sidekicks! Not you, Rich. You are great.

    63. Aemon Warrick

      I watched it and it was amazing, thanks RLM.

    64. MuphynToy

      If you liked this series, you should check out the reckoners book series. Same idea and it's one of my favorite book series by Brandon Sanderson

    65. Kevin Harris

      The comics are 100 times worse as far as being vile. IMO the TV show while I enjoyed was really watered down. You guys really should look at the comic and then compare.

    66. Freedomsaver

      Thanks for making this video. Watched 1 minute... then watched Season 1 of The Boys... and then the rest. :) Great recommendation!

    67. Archi Teuthis

      I'm still waiting for a live-action adaptation of _Marshall Law_

    68. anthos332

      Done with Marvel as well but nah... this show was a waste of time :/ The comics way different I guess so I'll give that a go.

    69. Doğukan Doğkan

      if you guys are interested in another "fucked up Superman" story, you should definitely check out Irredeemable.

      1. CharlieBrown20XD6

        I liked IRREDEEMABLE. but i wish it had stayed an evil Superman story instead of veering off into weird sub plots

    70. Pink Hoodie

      Jay looks like Zack Snyder But I’m just here for Rich and his laugh
