Preacher the movie? Televangelism!

Recommended Posts

I'm going to save up all of the second season and binge through it - the first was a little rough in places but the casting's great and it's definitely got that Preacher vibe down.

It is a fairly broadstrokes adaptation and yet everything about it I feel could have been done by Garf.

So I'm curious, how much have they changed ?

 

Also if they do change anything, can they maybe nerf the Saint a tad ? Cause he was so absurdly overpowered in the original series where the only way to propperly describe it is bad writing.

i concur: the saint is the embodiment of hate. hate is unrelenting, overwhelming and powerful beyond reason. it can under some circumstances be appeased by love for a time at least and the saint does not have any love left to give,

does he? so the only thing to defeat him is to throw a ridiculous high bodycount at him to exhaust him. which basically is how the series ends.

 

and to answer your question. they have changed a lot. they still haven't been on the road so far and yet some of the story-arcs have taken place already in some way. and herr starr (or any of his associates) have not appeared yet as far as i remember. also the overall tone of the series is a lot more slap-sticky.

I'd question that, actually. The comic series deliberately sets him up as a foil to Jesse's happy ending. He needs to be pretty ruined as a person to work in that role given some of the ghastly crap in the protagonist's backstory and the comic's storyline.

(Also, another dig at God, obvs.)

......Seriously now ?

 

Have they even bothered to do Angelville for one ? My guess is no.

 

And really, they're gonna bring this up now, and not later in the story when Custer is supposed to drift there as a broken man, both physically and mentally, and kind of be tempted to stay by finding his mother there, alive and mostly well, among other, very nice things ?

Nah.

That's the Comic.

This is a lovely work on the theme.

And fun.

 

Proves what Hellblazer could have been.
