The first couple of episodes were fairly predictable, even down to where I would say the lines before the actors could get them out. The later episodes did a decent job keeping me on my toes. 
Couple of small items; I did like how they kept the heroes in their uniforms no matter the situation (other than Starlight) .
Simon Pegg's American accent was killing me!

I was a fan of the comic and have to say the show works for me despite all of its changes from the source material. I'm four episodes in and digging it. But yes, Doug, I can't decide which is worse, Simon Pegg's American accent or Karl Urban's British one. Simon Pegg has done an American accent before and it's always terrible. He can however do a pretty damn good Scottish one. Other than the bad accents though the casting for the show is just about pitch perfect, especially the Homelander who seems to have leapt straight out of the comic onto the screen.

I've never read the comic but I'm 4 episodes in and pleasantly surprised. It's a very well done superhero satire with great production values, if you like this sort of thing I'd recommend it.

Curious to see more of Black Noir (the show's Batman analogue) and what he might be like...
