Watch The Boys season 3 blooper reel!


Homelander makes inappropriate hand gestures, Hughie does his best Butcher impression, and Jensen Ackles spits water at everyone in the blooper reel for The Boys season 3. The Blu-ray and DVD release of the season is coming out soon, and Amazon is giving us a little treat to get us ready. Watch below:

The Boys season 3 comes out on home video on October 24. As for season 4, it’s on the way, although it’s been delayed thanks to complications caused by the ongoing actors and writers strikes. We’ll have to wait a little bit longer to see the continuing adventures of TV’s grossest, most transgressive group of amoral superheroes.

Speaking of the strikes, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke had something to say about them…

The Boys showrunner takes aim at Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan over the writers strike

The Writers Guild of America has been on strike for over 100 days at this point. In general, they’re demanding better pay, increased job security, and guardrails on the use of AI, all pretty reasonable demands.

However, there is one demand that I, in my capacity as an outside observer with absolutely no skin in the game, raise an eyebrow at: minimum staffing requirements for writers rooms on TV shows. Some folks in the industry have spoken out against this request, like Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan, who writers pretty much every episode of that show himself.

As it ends up, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke has some things to say about that, as he told Deadline:

"There’s no way that one season can come out of a single person’s head. It’s a collage, and that’s the best part. Whatever Mr. Yellowstone and all this stuff about like, ‘I don’t want to have a room’ or ‘I don’t need a room.’ My feeling is, you’re missing out on the best part of this job. All of it is a grinding s*** show. Except you get to hang out with the smartest people you’ve ever met at a cocktail party that never ends. That’s the best part. So I don’t understand why that’s even an issue."

Okay, so I like that Kripke called Sheridan “Mr. Yellowstone” — that’s funny — but I’m not really seeing his argument. Obviously there is a way one season of TV can come out of a single person’s head. Just ask Taylor Sheridan. Or ask J. Michael Straczynski, who pretty much wrote all of Babylon 5 by himself. Game of Thrones had a very small writers room, with the great bulk of episodes written by David Benioff and Dan Weiss. Clearly, having only one or two writers can work for a TV show. (Yeah yeah, insert joke about how the ending to Game of Thrones was bad, but it was groundbreaking TV. And plenty of shows with writers rooms have had bad endings as well, so…)

It’s nice that Sheridan gets so much out of having a writers room, but I don’t think that’s the only way to make a TV show, and I think there should be allowances for one-writer rooms if that’s what the writer in that case feels is best. We’ll see how things shake out once the AMPTP finally cuts new a deal with the writers guild.
