The Boys, SII

The Boys is a blockbuster Amazon Prime television series based on a Bush-era comic book series of the same name, which revels in pushing the envelope in terms of ridiculously morally offensive over-the-top depictions of sex and violence. In the comic’s transition to television, it has been imbued with smart topical commentary and great performances and, consequently, at the time I’m writing this, The Boys is reported to be the highest-rated and most-watched Amazon series to date. The action takes place in a world much like our own, with the exception that superheroes are real and many of them are celebrities – movie stars, television stars, televangelists – and, also, the majority of them are secretly hedonistic sociopaths. The series centers on a powerful A-List team of supes known as “The Seven,” and their nemeses – a group of vigilantes known as “The Boys”. The vigilantes came together to seek justice for tragic losses they suffered individually due to a series of ill-fated run ins with the Seven, whose criminal acts were swept under the rug by the powerful corporate publicity machine that protects them.

The show had significant requirements for graphics, as this TV version of the world is saturated with superhero merchandise. The second season opens with the public funeral service for a member of “The Seven” who The Boys killed in the first season. The script and the showrunner asked for the scene outside of the church, and the merchandise being sold that capitalized on the mass-grief, be reminiscent of Princess Diana’s funeral crowds and funeral-souvenir merchandise.
