I watched the first season, and felt in a few instances, episodes could have been combined.

Just caught up with this, solid all around.

If it were a different kind of show, Anthony Starr would be up for an Emmy. His performance is both terrifying and very funny at the same time. His little TAXI DRIVER gag sympathizing with Travis Bickle ("How much shit is he supposed to take?!") had me in stitches.

The introduction of the Stormfront character is interesting too. Behind her faux feminist, "tell it like it is" persona there are a lot of alt-right tactics (social media agitation, "drain the swamp", etc.) that are being used right now and she provides a good contrast to Homelander's more "traditional" fascist.

Also, she is a racist but that didn't come as much of a surprise considering her superhero name of choice.  

Fun and smart show, looking forward to see where it goes from here.

Enjoying the new season but it does feel like it's more about The Seven and The Boys are subplots.
