Loved the Boys.
Haven't read the comics so don't know what's missing or have been toned down.
Anthony Starr was so friggin good as Homelander.
Urban as Butcher rocked also.
Can't wait for season two.

It's quite toned down, Ennis really pushes it a bit much in the comics just for the hell of it.

I'm still behind but finally watched season 2 of legion this week and damn if this isn't one of the best shows on TV. Really hoping season 3 can keep the quality up.

I'll get around to the boys eventually but much like preacher I'm expecting a watered down experience after reading the comic.

I feel like Legion just got better and better. Obviously there will be a couple of less that great episodes, but overall I loved this season. Series finale tonight, gonna miss this show when it is over.

Attempting to mitigate the depression brought on from recently watching Chernobyl by starting The Terror. A couple episodes deep into it and I am really sucked into it already. It feels so cinematic for a network show and I can't wait to see where it goes.

Really glad to hear this because season one is still among some of my favorite TV shows ever. That pilot alone was perfect and I loved the trippy vibe of the whole thing and I am excited to hear that it kind of leans a bit heavier into that side of things.

Just finished the Legion series finale... it was outstanding. Can’t say enough about this show.

I haven't read the comics, but I'm pretty impressed with what they can get away with in Preacher considering it's on basic cable. Speaking of Preacher, I just started the new season, and it's been very entertaining so far.
