20 Facts About 'The Boys' (Which Might or Might Not Explode in a Bloody Mess)
Well, the third season of The Boys ended a while ago, and it was awesome. Seriously, as the MCU keeps disappointing us (some of us haven’t seen Love and Thunder yet, so no spoilers!), The Boys just soared, all drenched in blood and edgy dick jokes. Quality fun. And indeed, what
Prime Video’s Pee Billionaire’s show has done is pretty amazing. The idea of adaptations being better than their sources (even according to their creators) is not new, but The Boys surpasses the comic in pretty much every possible sense – which actually means in the one sense that actually counts, considering comic books and TV shows are two incommensurable mediums: its writing.
Indeed, The Boys’ TV show has tightened the story, improved on its themes and ideas, and given its characters way more depth than the mere “what if superheroes were loco??” concept. Also, we know the answer to that question is “Jared Leto playing comic book characters”, and it sucks. As for The Boys, we’ve already devoted an entire Pictofacts to the show for all you hungry, thirsty Pictofans (yeah, we know you’re out there). In this latest version, we add a bunch of facts about the show, its production, some behind-the-scenes stories, and even facts about the comic books themselves. We have no delusions about these facts, by the way. Our hope is only that when Season 4 comes out and you’re blazed out of your skull binging it with a friend, you’ll stop those funny, awkward-silence thoughts by blurting one of these awesome facts out. That’s what we want, that’s why we care, Pictofans.
