GAL APPROVED! The Boys Are Back And Filthier Than Ever! Watch The Penultimate Season 4

By   |   June 21, 2024   |   Entertainment

The Boys has prided itself as the superhero deconstruction, flashing the proverbial middle finger at the machine of Marvel and D.C. Following the Gen V spinoff, The Boys are faced with greater threats. The ever-frightening Homelander (Anthony Starr), always a ticking time bomb on the brink of massacres, is closing his grips on the politics of the U.S.A.

Homelander got help too, recruiting Sage (Susan Heyward), a super with hyper-intellect. She’s a cynical Black woman game to twist Vought conservative politics, despite being impacted by racism, and her perpetually glassy look compliments her numbness to any morals. Also joining Homelander’s side is Valorie Curry as Firecracker, the perfect pick-me pundit white woman for Fox News (er, I mean Vought News).

And yet, these Vought supers as not as invasive threats as their own insecurities. Needless to say, the Boys are more of a hot mess. Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) wants to extract Ryan (Cameron Crovetti), the superpower son of the late Becca, from Homelander’s corruptive clutches, though he may slip into questionable methods of attempted extraction. Complicated is that Temp V has left him with a grave prognosis. Now dealing with leadership, Mother Milk (Laz Alonso) has to worry about his own sanity. Frenchie (Tomer Capone) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) have to deal with their own histories. Much of this season dives into the tension between mental-physical fatigue and the straining obligations of their missions.

In regards to some priceless treats among the grimy narrative, Tilda Swinton’s oozing cadence guest-voices the Deep’s (Chace Crawford) octopus mistress, Ambrosius. Her treatment, though, ultimately charts Deep’s own plunge into the trenches of his bitter, immature soul. Nathan Mitchell returns as a 2.0 version of Black Noir, this time portraying the wearer as a guy gobsmacked by an acting assignment that hasn’t given him much details or direction. At least, though, A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) faces his personal reckoning after a series of humiliations humble him to his senses.

As of this review, The Boys has entered episode 4 of season 4 in which Annie (Erin Moriarty) plunges deeper into burrowed insecurities. If anything, the Boys are more vulnerable to their psychological pains. The Boys series also cares deeply about how the world’s politics—mirroring our politics—affects and corrodes their psyche.

The Boys season 4 is streaming on Prime Video. The eight-episode screeners of The Boys have been viewed for this review.
