Our top picks for September

The Boys

“Never meet your heroes.” Amazon Prime’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s dark comic book series, The Boys, has never seemed more timely. The show follows Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), and the rest of their group as they try to take down the corrupt superhero team known as The Seven. Last season ended with The Boys on the run, as Antony Starr’s terrifying Homelander revealed to Butcher that his long-missing wife, Becca (Shantel VanSanten), has been raising Homelander’s son for the last eight years.

Butcher is still MIA when season 2 begins, as the Boys regroup and Homelander consolidates his power. However, Homelander has two new rivals this season: Vought CEO Stan Edgar, as played by the incomparable Giancarlo Esposito, and Stormfront (Aya Cash), a heroine who may be even more twisted than Homelander himself. When Butcher finally returns, the proverbial bleep is gonna hit the fan, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Utopia

There are no superheroes in Utopia, but the heroes of Amazon Prime’s upcoming original series may soon wish there were. The series is based upon a British drama with the same name, which features a wildly popular comic called Utopia within the world of the show. While the Utopia comic has been uncommonly prophetic, a group of fans soon discovers that the conspiracy depicted in the comic book is all too real. Somehow, this motley group needs to find a way to save themselves and the entire planet from a pandemic. John Cusack, Rainn Wilson, and Sasha Lane lead the impressive cast of Utopia, which may prove to be Prime’s sleeper hit of the month.
