The Daily Waffle: Episode Ninety Seven

June 27, 2020

  

NO VIDEO TODAY - WE'RE EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES

 

THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN

 

Or at least they will be soon - the second season of the TV adaptation of Garth Ennis's foul mouthed, blasphemous, politically incorrect, purile, violent and gratuitously offensive masterpiece hits Amazon Prime on 4th September.

 

We confess to having thoroughly enjoyed season one, having previously thought the series to be unfilmable. It certainly shows the adaptation of Ennis's other opus Preacher how such things should be done.  The only question now, is will they have a go at adapting the "Herogasm" storyline - because if they pull that off (no pun intended) they really will have broken some boundries...

 

 

WE STILL DON'T KNOW WHEN WE'RE RE-OPENING, BUT EXPECT NEWS SOON

 

Nothing it add to that really - we'll let you know.
