The Boys Presents: Diabolical Trailer

Tweekums 7 March 2022

This animated spin off from 'The Boys' features eight ten minute episodes, each of which tells a complete little story. The stories vary in style and tone but it is safe to say none are suitable for younger viewers thanks to the level of extremely gory violence and robust language. It is set in the same universe as 'The Boys' so it is likely to appeal most to people who have seen and enjoyed that... while many things can be enjoyed by new viewers it wastes no time re-introducing familiar characters.

Overall I really enjoyed this series, although it must be stated that some episodes were better than others. It started well with an episode featuring a scientist trying to save a baby that shoots lasers out of its eyes and ends on a real high with a story about Homelander's first mission. For me the weak point was the fifth episode; when 'South Park' had a talking poo twenty years ago it was childishly amusing but here it was just weak... at least it was only one episode and things improved again later. The animation is solid and the voice cast, which includes an impressive array of well-known actors does a fine job. As stated before it is pretty violent with lots of characters meeting a grisly end... if you've seen anime like 'Elfen Lied' you'll be familiar with such matter. This certainly won't be for everybody but if you enjoyed 'The Boys' then I'd certainly recommend this; if you don't enjoy it you won't be wasting too much time.

This is a mixed bag. It's cartoonish, but a lot of blood and violence. What you would expect from the show. There are a lot of side characters, ones you would never see in the normal show.

The 1st episode is good, it's cute and fun. The 2nd episode is not good at all. The 3rd episode was hilarious. The 4th episode was good, interesting. The 5th episode was, huh, poopy? The 6th episode was slow to develop, but the ending was worth it. The 7th one was interesting, but then it sort of went off the rails. The ending was good though. The 8th one was good, but I think it shows a lot about Homelander.

I am a big fan of Amazon's show The Boys and now they have released a spinoff anthology animated show called Diabolical. I watched through it all today and here is my review for it. The premise of the show looks at 8 original stories that fit the tone of The Boys and features some of their characters.

This show varies so much that it is really hard to talk about. The best episode by a country mile was the final episode which looks at some of the origins as Homelander, The amazing Anthony Starr returns to voice the character and he does such a great job in showing how he became the character that we know in the live action show. If the show had been all of this then this show would have been amazing and something truly worthy of the title.

But the show has seven other episodes that for me ranged from average to bad. It has an amazing collection of voice actors but none of them get any chance to shine because it is hard to care about them given the extremely brief time we spend with them. The episodes are only about 10-15 minutes long and it makes it an easy watch in terms of length but also quite unfulfilling in the way it presents itself.

The violence is even more over the top here then it was in the live action show but it felt more pointless here. The writing is sub standard and it just feels like shock value to me and something that felt like just an excuse to see just how much they could get away with.

Overall, The Boys Presents: Diabolical is a below average show that unless you like the live action show is not worth the time. Even then just watch the final episode and avoid the rest.

Rating - 4/10.

Simon Pegg and Seth Rogan got really high and these are the ideas that were not produced anywhere else. The success of "THE BOYS" makes this marketable. One episode about the live poop was the worst 15 minutes of my life and I lost brain cells just watching it. These guys have attached themselves to super hero stuff and should not be. They are the worst of us and I am less of a person for watching the eight short cartoons.

Get really high, write a dozen bad ideas, get them produced because you are piggybacking on a successful TV show .. and push this disappointment out. Soooo bad. Just unwatchable trash.

stevebondi 8 March 2022

Irreverent, bloody, violent humor like The Boys series, but amped up a bit with animation. It is focused on getting quick laughs with its short stories, so it is mostly missing the non-comedic heart that The Boys series has.

I actually don't know why I'm even making this comparison, but fk it, I'm gonna do it anyway.

Compared to SW: Visions, this one was more fun to watch and it actually knew when to end it and not bore you to death.

So, given that Star Wars has a huge vast universe and the writers can basically come up with anything and be as creative as they can be, Star Wars: Visions just focused on "where mah lightsaber" and Jedi vs Sith stuff.

I know I'm kinda shooting myself in the foot by saying that, because this show's episodes were all about Compound V too, so it's kinda the same as Lightsabers, but the difference is that the whole world of The Boys revolves around this serum and these superheroes, while Star Wars is more than just Lightsabers as we saw with The Mandalorian. (Well, they kinda threw the whole Jedi and Lightsaber thing into Mandalorian too, but you get what I'm saying).

Star Wars has literally infinite amount of galaxies and planets to explore and the best they could come up with for 9 episodes was just "The quest to find a Lightsaber". And the anime style didn't work for Star Wars at all.

At least this one explores different aspects of this superhero-infested universe.

However, just like Star Wars: Visions, this one has lots of bad or pointless episodes too, but at least they're somewhat fun to watch and the 10-minute format makes them a little less unbearable.

And to be fair, just like I liked only two episodes from SW: Vision, I only liked two or three episodes from this show too, but like I said, these are at least shorter and more fun to watch. But if I'm being real fair, this show had the worst episode out of all of both shows' episodes, and you know which one I'm talking about. Not even Rick and Morty and their Sperm episode writers would dare writing something so stupid and pointless as that episode.

The show is ultimately a forgettable one, but it's at least kinda nice to get back to this universe since the last season came out a long time ago. I just wish Amazon put some effort into it and hired better writers like they did with Invincible and not just make a cheap and quick show with random shorts.

Anyway, this is my rating and quick review of the episodes:

  • Episode 1, "Laser Baby's Day Out": 6/10 - Fun little first episode cartoon from the great Vaught company


  • Episode 2, "An Animated Short Where Pissed-Off Supes Kill Their Parents": 7/10 - I want to see that in the live-action show


  • Episode 3, "I'm Your Pusher": 8/10 - Billy Butcher rocks!


  • Episode 4, "Boyd in 3D": 6/10 - Fun, decent episode, ruined by the ending.


  • Episode 5, "BFFs" (Should've been named "skip this episode"): 1/10 - Not funny, didn't laugh.


  • Episode 6, "Nubian vs Nubian": 6/10 - What was the point exactly?


  • Episode 7, "John and Sun-Hee": 5/10 - Ok and?


  • Episode 8, "One Plus One Equals Two": 8/10 - Yup, Homielander is a psycho alright.

The core strength of an anthology show is that it can deliver a different flavour each episode. However, they usually come from the same complimentary palette.

Here though, the tastes are all over the place, with some being literal faecal, and not every viewer is going to enjoy every episode.

There are only two episodes here which are really closely associated with The Boys: "I'm Your Pusher", and "One Plus One Equals Two". Both of those are presented in straight Westernised-anime style, and stay strictly on tone and message for the comics and live action. They anchor the series, and the latter episodes closes it out strongly and gets it back on brand.

The rest of the episodes are linked only by Vought, and are wildly different in art styles, score, tone, pacing, and intent.

We start with "Laser Baby's Day Out" which takes the Incredibles short "Jack-Jack Attack" to its extreme, juxtaposing a cute baby, classic Warner Brothers animation and orchestral score, sans dialogue, with extreme cartoonish bloody violence. It's as simple as it sounds, competently done, and can be enjoyed for exactly what it is.

"An Animated Short Where Pissed-Off Supes Kill Their Parents" is absolute truth in advertising, and is a strongly Rick and Morty toned episode - quite literally, given that it was written and (bit part) voiced by Justin Roiland. It will appeal to Rick and Morty fans, or it won't appeal at all.

"I'm Your Pusher" is a straight comic adaptation by its author, Garth Ennis, and will appeal to people who just want to see an animated version of the original source, or the live action. A basic story, no surprises, and decently voiced, although Jason Isaacs can't replicate the gloriously Shatnerian hot mess that Karl Urban brought to the live action.

"Boyd in 3D" is the strongest concept and most tightly written episode. The art style is Walt Disney, 1960s to 1980s, and the theme is the self destructive nature of social media, borrowing themes from Black Mirror episodes like "Nosedive" and "Fifteen Million Merits". It crams an astonishing amount of effective story arc into its short runtime, and the inevitable twist ending is likely to provoke a genuine emotional response. Whether you love it or hate it - and I hated it, having invested in the characters - you won't be able to ignore it. That's high praise for an animated short.

"BFF" is the literal stinking turd of the series, incompetently written and voiced by two people whose garbage inner natures are inadvertently mirrored in its premise. It's poorly conceived, infantilely implemented, and should have been flushed rather than aired.

"Nubian vs Nubian" is conflicting. It's basic and under-written, although there are a few genuinely funny lines. It falls short of real Blaxploitation, and thankfully there are no hateful identity politics. However, it abuses a young child actress to deliver some vile lines which will have destroyed what's left of her innocence. This is not OK, and it doesn't become so just because everybody in a degenerate industry does it.

"John and Sun-Hee" is the Akira-meets-Studio-Ghibli episode, and stylistically it's right on point with the artwork, animation style and premise. However, it's a wafer thin premise, sparsely written, and merely competently voices. Unlike "Boyd in 3D" there's no emotio

Not all episodes were bad and I giggled a few times here and there. I would prefer a live-action spin off of the boys rather than an aminated anthology. With anthologie series there are bound to be some turds. I'm referring to the episode with literal 💩. I cam see people enjoying the different animation styles and a few episodes. The diabolical is not for me.

Diabolically speaking the 1st and 5th episode was the real deal but the rest not so good, but i enjoy the series cause it was fun and all and yes Amazon outdid their self's.

johnbell863 13 March 2022

The Boys is very cringey, liberal garbage. That's about it. I hope it gets canceled, and that will in turn kill this awful spinoff, like killing the head vampire kills all the other vampires. What a pile of crap. I don't know how people can be so stupid.

Literally only complete idiots would enjoy something like this. You can tell yourself "NAH UH!" but yah huh. It's meant for stupid people like you.
