What I Watched This Week: 27 Sep 2020

The Boys – “Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker” (B+)
Felt a bit too on-the-nose, but it’s not the show’s fault the real world is run by white supremacists trying to start a race war.

The Boys – “The Bloody Doors Off” (A-)
One of the show’s darkest and most violent hours yet, with half of the Boys trapped in a hospital for mentally ill patients injected with Compound V. The casting of Shawn Ashmore as an ex-Supe who kills the patients whose bodies reject the superpowers is inspired.

The Simpsons – Season 6 (A average)
Perhaps the show’s second-best season (after Season 4), with a particularly inspired stretch in the back half. And that finale, in which Mr. Burns’ behavior “crossed the line between everyday villainy and cartoonish supervillainy” doesn’t feel so cartoonish anymore.
