The Boys (July 26) Not your typical superhero show…in fact more like an anti-superhero show. Based on the comic book of the same name, The Boys, ventures into what the world would be like if superheroes were to indulge more into the dark side of the celebrity that comes with being super and a band of vigilantes (known as “the boys”) has to take on a group of corrupt superheroes known as The Seven. Pretty good line up as far as the cast goes.
Pennyworth (July 28)
The show wants to get all up into what the Wayne’s’ butler, Alfred’s life was like before he was old and wise and just brought Batman his dinner on a shiny silver tray.
The Righteous Gemstones (Aug) A show that follows a family of world-famous televangelists? I was in when I saw that John Goodman was in it.
HOW THE HELL HAS NO ONE MADE A BIGGER DEAL OUT OF THIS!?!?!??!?!?! THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (August 30, Netflix) It’s been 37 years and I’m still a little creeped out by the puppet people. Also, when saw that Mark Hamill was one of the voice actors, I was sold.
Fear The Walking Dead (June 2) I watched the first season…maybe even the next of this but I think we discovered another show and forgot all about this one.
The Handmaid’s Tale (June 5, Hulu) It looks like I’m going to go ahead and finish what I have left of this one so I can watch on June 5th like everyone else. It got to where I was getting so pissed I would just yell at Doc immediately when he got home for pretty much nothing so I had to take a break but I think I can handle all the rape and abuse and all around fuckery that is the premise of this show….maybe.
Black Mirror (June 5, Netflix)
