Yeah, shame it's not a Netflix joint as the pacing would lend itself well to a good bulk weekend viewing.

Dropped in to say Hi and throw my support behind this show, didn't think I'd dig it but I'm loving the style, story, and characters as much as I ever enjoyed the Vertigo book.

Notice our Constantine buddy Dave Blass is in on Preacher?

He clearly has a great fondness for his job.

I think the show sucks. It's not Preacher.

So it turns out this show is in the same universe as Breaking Bad. Or rather they use that dam for shady transport.

It's been ok but not what I expected and the random flashbacks can be annoying and confusing at times.

As a TV show it's OK. As a comic adaptation it's really not good. The Saint was the fucking business in the last ep though.

havent seen the last episode yet.
i think its a cool show, its far away from the comic, but that mustnt be bad. i don't think you can run a succesful tv show on ennis' cynism.
i watch it with my best buddy and hes hooked, so thats nice.

I respectfully and totally disagree. Cassidey, Jesse and Tulip in the comic were way more interesting characters than the cardboard cutouts playing them on tv..

I'm not criticizing the actors, but the writers. They are written to be just uninteresting. the only part of the show with any interest to me is the saint of killers, and with one episode left, it'll either be a cliffhanger or won't happen til next season. i also hate that they've stayed in Anneville all season. the slow pacing is just killing me. they left Anneville in issue #1.

I am loving Ruth Negga's Tulip. Saint above all, of course.

Tulip's not horrible, i guess. by far the most interesting of the 3 characters. i just don't find jesse likable at all. that's a problem.

that's fine for you. i would just rather have something more like the comic than just the characters have the same names.
