Peacemaker – My Take
I just binge wtached the entire first season
Like all James Gunn products, this too have some amazing tracks. This series feature a lot of metal/rock tracks.
The actors were hilarious in their roles. I am sure that they had a blast filming.
It was funny to see Peacemaker making fun of all the super hero’s in DC universe.
The jokes are pretty rude and there are some nude scenes. Everything’s basically over the to. So I don’t think you could watch it with family.
But if you are watching alone or with your friends, then this is a must watch series. If you loved Suicide Squad 2, then this is as good or even better.
