For me, it's still an enjoyable show - plenty of violence, dark humor, and pokes fun at both sides of the culture wars. Maeve has been MIA though, to the extent that unless she does something dramatic in the remainder of the season, I can't see why she is a promoted character/cast member.

Didn't mind Charlize Theron's brief guest appearance at the start of the first episode though...

For most of the comic, Maeve spent the entire time drunk as a way to deal with the massive amount of death and destruction that she and the Seven caused when trying to stop the 9/11 attacks. She also acts as a living example of what Starlight will become if she stays with the Seven. I do like how the show seems to be trying to give Maeve a bit more but suspect that more involvement from her is coming as Homelander continues to go off the deep end.

Boys Season 3 is on the same path of sex, violence,  gore, and abuse of superpower retired superwoman Crimson Cyclone with similarity to StormFront

Yowza !  
As much as I dislike the character, this is pretty cool.

I agree with Woodclaw that I so dislike Homelander to the point where he ruins the show. Way too single dimensional. Lost my appetite for the show due to him.

Intriguing that the new Homelander might be a hot blonde, but if she’s written much like the original,  then it won’t work for long with me. Hopefully they will take the opportunity to make the role more nuanced and a bit more human.

There's an excellent fight scene (spoiler alert) in s03e06. several examples on youtube under homelander fights butcher similar (next spoiler) to a big fight scene with Stormfront.

I disagree with the comments about Homelander, he IS the reason of the show, a mockup of the Superman comic book character, always in a dangerous balance between the need to appear ''perfect'' and adored by all people and snapping in a catastrophic way .... and the actor does a magnificient job with all his hilarious face expressions (especially in S01)

That's one of the great wonders of fantasy, and of creative art in general.

People can have opposite opinions and disagree on everything and it's all goodness. No right, no wrong. No winners and no losers. No good, no bad. Just opinions. 

Too bad the rest of life isn't so simple.

Yes ok but you didn't elaborate on your thoughts. To write that is just like saying ''eh everybody has an opinion, it's like the a**holes, everybody has one". The point of The Boys comic book and later the tv-serie is exactly to mock the whole superhero fandom.
If you wanted Homelander to be a more likeble superhero, more down to the standard image/perception we have of the "super" good guys, after almost a century of comic books and superhero movies and tv series, then you are looking at the wrong place here.
They made Homelander (and most of the other superheroes) like that on purpose, total egomaniac pieces of sh*t with no empathy at all towards the other people (super or regular, doesn't matter). Only looking for fame, prestige and money. To the point you cannot even understand who are the good guys and the villains anymore.
If you think about it, in real life, most VIPs (actors, singers, politicians etc) and other people supposed to be so too (CEO like Steve Jobs, influencers, etc) can be depicted in the same way.

I've known a few tech CEO's, and more than a few other C-level types, back when I was an executive, and none of them were like what you describe. Sure, they had special motivations to make the company successful given their bonuses were constructed accordingly, but that was true of all of us, just to a lesser degree. Some CEO's were good at it and some sucked. But when they got drunk, they all got stupid like the rest of us.

The most common vice, given these were men who'd been geeks since they were kids, was that they were suddenly attracting the interest of the kind of women they'd always lusted over, but who'd never given them a second look before. Their ego thought that because they could date or marry stunningly good-looking women, that they were now cool. That was a real sh*t show. Those rich geeks kept diving into waters that were WAY too full of sharks. Those savvy and experienced women took them apart bit by bit until they could claim a huge divorce settlement. At least that was my observation as I saw it happen again and again.

So that was the most common flaw of tech CEO's. Which was pretty sad, and rarely talked about. None of them were sociopaths or fame seekers like Homelander, so I can't see painting them with those same brushes. 

As far as the TV show goes, it just wasn't my cup of tea, and Homelander was the face of what I didn't like about the show. And yes, I know I was watching it with the wrong expectations.  But I might give it another try if the new Homelander is a hot blonde. Might end up in the same place assuming the same writing and direction, but who knows, she might be able to bring a bit of nuance to the role.

Although as you suggest, it was never intended to be nuanced. 

Anyway, I remain always hopeful...

You do realize that the girl is a cosplayer and it's never gonna happen on the tv-serie, right ... ?

Didn’t know that. Figured from the discussion that she was a new character in show. Obviously I’m not watching the show any longer.

But for a moment, I thought there was hope for the show.

oh well…
