“Preacher” S01E10: Call And Response

Published on :

We’ve reached the end folks. Well, the end for now anyway. After ten episodes, Preacher Season 1 has completed its run. The series started on tough terrain, with meandering based around far lesser versions of the characters we have now. Then, we slowly but surely got a closer thematic adaptation of the source material. Still, Preacher had a lot […]

“Preacher” S01E09: Finish The Song

Published on :

Despite having a literal vampire as one of the major characters, Preacher rarely feels like a horror television show. This week, Sam Caitlin and his staff made up for lost time. This is definitely the goriest episode of Preacher, but also the most horror atmosphere driven. There’s a burnt up vampire, more than a few bodies and even […]

“Preacher” S01E08: El Valero

Published on :

AMC hasn’t been afraid to use explicit gore since The Walking Dead became their highest rated show. Yet, it’s rare that said use of gore has more than a passive affect of killing a zombie or shooting anyone in the head. This week, Preacher kicked itself off with a simple yet powerful use of gore. In a flashback, […]

“Preacher” S01E07: He Gone

Published on :

“Plot matters,” Cassidy says as he delivers another nasty blow to The Coen Brothers’ style of filmmaking. It’s a mantra that Preacher has finally decided to follow in the second half of its first season. “He Gone” continues the trend by making it perfectly clear that Jesse Custer’s done it now. After expelling Eugene “Arseface” Root to hell […]

“Preacher” S01E06 – Sundowner

Published on :

“Genesis? What like the band? Terrible name,” Cassidy says after hearing the name of Jesse’s otherworldly power. After five or so episodes sidestepping the central aspect of the comic’s plot, Preacher gets to finally putting a name on the divine entity that has possessed its titular creature. The aftermath of demon and angel sex backstory is confirmed […]

“Preacher” S01E05: The South Will Rise Again

Published on :

Last week, I begged Preacher to actually do something. After a few solid episodes of zilch happening of interest, “The South Will Rise Again” starts with quite a bang. We return to the Old West setting with our mysterious Cowboy, who rides into Ratwater searching for medicine to help his ailing daughter. The Cowboy witnesses the type of […]

“Preacher” S01E04: Monster Swamp

Published on :

Preacher is definitely not going to leave Annville any time soon. It’s something the pilot promised right off the bat, but “Monster Swamp” seems to have confirmed that the action will not be leaving this dirt covered hole in the middle of Texas as much as it will be coming directly to it… eventually. Much like AMC’s The […]

“Preacher” S01E03: The Possibilities

Published on :

Forward momentum seems to be a constant cocktease on Preacher. In “The Possibilities,” we get total confirmation of a step forward in the story yet at the same time a step backward for our lead. It’s this kind of back and forth that makes me incredibly worried for the future of the series. One can see […]

“Preacher” S01E02: See

Published on :

The second chapter in the televised Preacher adaptation starts off on a rather confident note, one I was worried they wouldn’t really get to on the series as it was one of the more bizarre aspects of the comics. It’s 1881 and a stoic cowboy wanders from his house, wife and ailing daughter to the lonesome trail in search of […]

“Preacher” S01E01: Pilot

Published on :

Preacher, one of the most celebrated comic book series of the late 20th/early 21st century, is hard to adapt. For years, there have been feeble attempts to capture the 66 issue series (not including one shots or a Saint of All Killers mini-seires) by acclaimed author Garth Ennis, from the likes of a film produced […]
