THE BOYS Is Amazon’s Highest Series On IMDB

The Boys (Amazon Prime)

It feels as though everyone is talking about The Boys. The graphic superhero show has caused a storm, winning audiences and critics over. Everywhere I go, someone mentions The Boys.

According to IMDB, The Boys has an 9/10 rating. However, Forbes‘ article states it has an 8.9. As it stands, The Boys is the 36th highest rated show in TV history, with 40,000 votes. Additionally, it is both Amazon’s highest rated show and the highest rated superhero show on TV.

Looking at other Amazon releases, here is a decent comparison:

Amazon Shows:

  • The Boys – 8.9 (40,000 votes)

Now, looking at the other Superhero shows (strictly live-action), here is how The Boys has dominated the cape-wearing world:

Superhero Shows:

  • The Boys – 8.9 (40,000 votes)
  • Daredevil – 8.6 (333,000 votes)
  • The Punisher – 8.6 (153,000 votes)

  • Umbrella Academy – 8.0 (77,000 votes)
  • The Flash – 7.8 (280,000 votes)
  • Agents of SHIELD – 7.5 (185,000 votes)

Obviously, as time goes on it is indeed possible for The Boys to drop as more and more people watch and vote- there is almost a 300,000 voting gap between Daredevil and The Boys. Even if it does dip, it won’t be a lot and it appears as though Amazon are already over the moon with the shows overall success:

Head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke had this to say:

“We are thrilled that The Boys has surpassed our predictions for viewing in its first two weeks, and has become one of our most watched Amazon Original series by our Prime Video customers.”

Whether you think it is the best show on Amazon, honestly comes down to taste. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the show, so leave them in the comments!
