AMC Presents Garth Ennis' Preacher (written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg...yes really) - Page 13

I just wish it hadn't taken so damn long.

I turned to my gf during the episode and said, "Now that Jesse isn't acting like a sad fucking sack this is actually great."

Gave it rewatch earlier and realized I'd missed someone shouting "What did you do to the dinosaurs?" at 'God'. Gotta admit that I raised a smile when I heard that.

Actually I think it was with dinosaurs. As in where are you hiding them.

Yeah, I think you're right. Actually, that's much funnier.

I confess that by the end of it, I quite liked Donnie, his wife, Emily, and Sheriff Root so while I'm glad the gang are hitting the road at long last, I was sad to see the others blown the fuck up. I'm also in that small group of people who believes the 'Salvation' arc did serve an important purpose in the overall narrative so losing Odin so soon too kinda worries me somewhat.

Still, for all its faults, I am glad this show exists and is continuing.

That moment at the end where they're in the car and finally ready to hit the road, then pause while the Stones are playing. Cassidy from the backseat: "What the hell are we waiting for?" So good.

 

Doing the first season this way may have been how they felt they had to get people on board who didn't know the source material. It was cool to see Desmin Borges as Carlos, who plays the sad-sack roommate on YOU'RE THE WORST. I had no idea he was going to be on the show and died laughing when it cut to him tied up in episode 9.

 

There was enough good stuff throughout the season that I'm excited for year 2. Between this and HAP & LEONARD coming back, we've got a nice little Texas noir TV sub-genre happening.

Thanks for the reminder. I need to get on that show.

I kinda wonder if Cassidy's "I can get you Angel hands" dialogue was meant to echo Goodman's "You want a toe?  I can get you a toe, dude." dialogue from Lebowski so similarly.

I'm pretty certain it was.

I finally caught up, after this languished on my DVR most of the summer, and I think I can easily call this the biggest disappointment of the year for me, thus far. I was really with it for a while, but aside from Cassidy, nothing here suggested to me they have any idea what they're doing with the source material. They can throw some very good sequences together every now and then, usually an action scene, but they spent an entire season on the first half of the first trade paperback, material you'd read in your first sitting, no problem, and made it ten hours long. And added pretty much nothing at all!

What are we supposed to think about any of these characters? I loved Jesse and Tulip in the books, and here they're mopey, entitled whiners who take no personal responsibility for anything. Eugene is more likable than he ever was in the book, but then we find out he shot a girl in the face with a shotgun because she wouldn't date him, and he's not in jail for some reason? Emily is nicer than anyone, until she feeds the Mayor to Cassidy out of no where, no one ever mentions it, and she dies off screen? And Quincannon is basically right about God...and that's it with his story, I guess?

Fuck this show. I'll be watching next year.
