How super is the first season of The Boys TV show on Amazon Prime Video? Usually, the Nielsen ratings play a big role in determining whether a TV show like The Boys is cancelled or renewed for season two. Amazon and other streaming platforms, however, collect their own data. If you’ve been watching this TV series, we’d love to know how you feel about The Boys season one episodes. We invite you to rate them for us here. Status update below.
An Amazon superhero drama from Eric Kripke, based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Elisabeth Shue, Jennifer Esposito, Alex Hassell, and Simon Pegg. It unfolds in a world in which superheroes are more idolized than celebrities, and some of them are abusing their superpowers. After Hughie Campbell’s (Quaid) love becomes collateral damage to one of the Supes of The Seven, he teams up with Billy Butcher (Urban) and his gang of vigilantes called The Boys. Now they’re out to expose the truth about superheroes, and about Vought — the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that both manages the Supes and covers up their dirty secrets.
