The Boys is quite fantastic (a lot of credit to Karl Urban)!!
Idk if anything else like it exists or not. But this is the first anti-suoerhero type show I've seen. If one is bored of Marvel/DC, this show is highly recommended.

Karl is ok but the Homelander actor steals the show.

The Boys is a great show if you are into gory violence
+1 The boys is so fun! But I am not into gory violence at all. There is gore, but its.. 'different'. Not cartoonish, but different. I didn't find it disturbing. For comparison this shit movie : The dinner party, almost made me puke with its gore!
Edit: ok I partially take it back. Started season 2. Some seasons are disturbing. But I look away if something is coming.. so its still ok

The Boys comic, published by DC, is 14 years old mate. Nothing new.
The show is loosely based on the comics, and the later is more violent and gory.
Yeah I did see that its based on a comic but didn't know it was that old and published by DC. Anyway, good show I'd say.

Fair enough haha! Yeah, The Boys isn't exactly disturbing, tbf.

Ah. The comics were really great! In a world where superheroes/vigilantes are criminals? (iirc.) Also, again, iirc the show is very loosely based off the comics. VERY LOOSELY.

Folks if you haven’t seen The Office (US) you’re missing out on one of the best satirical and comical shows of all time.

Must watch if you like satirical comedy shows.

The Office, Breaking Bad and Night manager are all highly recommended. The Office takes some time to get into, but its great to watch post that.

My god, Fleabag was one of the best series i've ever seen in my life.

The writing was perfect. Funny, irreverent and so heartfelt. So many things rightly critical about today's PC society.

I saw phoebe earlier in Run and she nailed the part there too. But that series was nowhere as good as Fleabag.

The Queens Gambit is very good. Its a drama, but engaging. Cobra kai is a lot of fun. Apart from these two I have only seen Scam 1992, Paatal lok and Panchayat. All three are highly recommended!
