Critic Reviews of "The Boys - Season 1"Boston GlobeJuly 25, 2019
The cast is fine, particularly Shue, who is icily effective; Quaid, whose neurotic but brave fumblings are endearing; and Urban, who is Hughie's gonzo guide.RogerEbert.comJuly 25, 2019
The Boys fails to be truly subversive in ways that count more than just wagging a middle finger at Marvel CEO Kevin Feige.indieWireJune 06, 2019
"The Boys" might not feel essential to our culture's ongoing superhero conversation, but it does cross a few lines other franchises might not.Geek Girl RiotJuly 26, 2019
[Almost "fresh" because it's fearless] The character development from the comics isn't here and without that you really don't understand who The Boys are, so you can't really side with them-and in their twisted universe they need someone on their side.TV FanaticJuly 25, 2019
The Boys can be called a lot of things. It's vulgar, crass, violent, and bloody. It's absurd, but earnest. But The Boys has something to say about hero worship and absolute power, and it blends well even with the often indelicate delivery.ColliderJuly 25, 2019
A lot of wild things happen in The Boys. But underneath all that superpowered ass-murder is genuinely one of the most timely TV series I've seen in a long time.Radio TimesJuly 25, 2019
Amongst all that, it's nice to have a palate-cleanser like The Boys to present a darker, more screwed-up version of superheroes. If nothing else, you'll never look at Clark Kent the same way again.SFX MagazineJuly 25, 2019
The Boys is by no means perfect - the jokes often fall flat and the show is already guilty of an uneven tone that juggles heart-wrenching drama one minute and Tarantino-esque scraps the next - but it's undeniably refreshing.The Mary SueJuly 25, 2019
It's shocking and crude, but it's profane for a reason and outrageous because it actually has something to say about those in power and the heroes we worship. It's crazy, but it's also a hell of a lot of fun.Pittsburgh Post-GazetteJuly 25, 2019
It's an entertaining series without perhaps the abundance of dry wit of "Preacher," and a subplot involving a mysterious substance called Compound V never really warms up. But for summer fun, sure, why not?
