The announcement of the animated spin-off show ‘The Boys’ Presents: Diabolical from Amazon Prime was sincerely exciting. If you’re already a fan of The Boys, learning about this show was a treat! Now the time has come with all eight episodes of Diabolical out, and boy did they do this right.
The different episodes were unique not only with every show imaginable but within itself. The anthology-like nature of this show was a perfect choice and there is so much talent flooding the lifeblood of this series that it’s almost hard to believe such a collaboration exists. Buckle up buttercup, this is about to get wild.
Warning: Major Spoilers Below
Episode 1: Laser Baby’s Day Out
This episode is what most of you will be familiar with from the trailer. A Vought scientist chases after a baby on the loose. That baby has laser vision and kills all the soldiers trying to stop her. It’s absolutely hilarious and disgusting. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg co-wrote this fantastic Looney Tunes-style episode. There is no dialogue and enough physics-forgetting stunts that quite literally made me laugh out loud.
Episode 3: I’m Your Pusher
Billy Butcher finally makes an appearance in The Boys Presents: Diabolical, and thankfully so because he is one of the best in the show. Unfortunately, Karl Urban doesn’t voice Butcher but Jason Issacs does a bloody-well job in his place.
Episode 5: BFFs
This episode is NOT what you expect it’s going to be in the beginning. Awkwafina wrote this episode and stars in it as well. I admit that until Shang Chi, I had no idea who she was, but her hilarious talent is on full display here.
Three teens head out to buy “one $20 marijuana bag and that’s about it” before this takes a wild turn. Sky, voiced by Awkwafina, gets into the car with the drug dealer and they get into a crash. She finds a vial of Compound V and steals it.
When she’s home, she sinks into her own mind and how depressed she is. She’s a loner and a misfit and decides to drink the Compound V instead of injecting it, which we haven’t seen anyone do yet. Well, the V went into her body and literally brought her poop to life. They become BFFs, hence the title of the episode.
