Going as per the reviews, the superhero series opened to a mixed response with many calling it 'unhinged' and 'tamest' while other users felt that the first three episodes were 'lit.'
One of the users wrote, "I’m no prude but some scenes in the new season of #TheBoys are just tooooo much and we’re only 3 episodes on. I didn’t know stuff like this was even allowed on TV even if it isn’t cable" while another wrote, "Thoroughly enjoyed the first 3 episodes of #TheBoys Season 3. Easily the best live-action show released so far this year. I had so much fun watching it and can't wait for the remaining episodes to drop. This was lit!".
