The Boys on Amazon: Forget Everything You Know About Superheroes

August 26, 2019

Welcome to another conversation with novelist, Literature Prof. and Writing Professor Theo Gangi and Gil Kidron. In this podcast we review The Amazon Prime show - The Boys. The Boys takes a subversive take on the superhero genre and injects realism into it - how would these kinds of people be like if they were real. How would their existence affect our society, politically, geopolitically and economically. What kind of people would these superheroes be? Would they be kind and smart or ego maniacal assholes? We debate those issues and how current this adaption to the 2006 comic book series actually is.
