  1. Herr Starr is a glaring omission from season 1. Having Jesse and Tulip as childhood friends changes their dynamic.Sending Arseface to hell? Why can the voice send him there and not bring him back? the inconsistencies with the power of the voice irk the fuck out of me. And Quincannon's loophole that he serves the god of meat so the voice didn't work on him the way Jesse intended? vomit! i was hoping to see him fucking his meat fuck doll but I knew that wouldn't happen.

     

    All that said, I enjoyed the finale. but I have a question: in the show, Jesse murders a guy in cold blood. I didn't think, other than the forces against him hurling foes at him non stop, he'd killed anyone before because of that whole redneck hillbilly honor thing. That's why Cassidey is an abomination, cuz he murders. I think having Jesse be a murderer makes his character less sympathetic unless you're playing for the way too obvious restitution/penance angle. I might be wrong and he did kill someone in the past, but I don't think so. The Saint, so far, is elegant in its accuracy to my mind.

  2. I'm just hoping the book is more than a nostalgia fest, that it has something new to say.

    Now, I hope they aren't going back to that over-reliance on the comfortable and safe to appease us long-time fans after they ruined our favourite character.

     

    kinda peels back the skin, don't it?

  3. i don't mean to insult any of the early artists Delano worked with, and it was the 80s, but I wonder how different his run would have been with one of the artists who drew hellblazer for a significant time. i know Simpson had a decent run drawing for Delano but i felt his style was too old school for such an in your face comic. I wonder if Delano had had Jock for longer than Pandemonium, or Manco, or Dillon (I know some of you don't like Dillon's 3 faces, but still) what a difference it would have made among current readers who didn't grow up with the book.

     

    Carey's John was my favorite. Delano, then Jenkins.

  4. The closing credits to one episode was to "Nocturnal Me" by Echo & the Bunnymen, the very next episode opened with "Atmosphere" by joy division. I'm pretty sure I heard "Ceremony" by new order along side Toto's Africa in the soundtrack.

     

    If Stephen King and Steven Spielberg fucked and made a tv baby and hired John Peel as its nanny, this is it.

  5. 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.

  6. Jon did just find out that if he died, the red woman was going to bring him back anyway. He told her not to but she was like fuck you I work for shiny god, it's resurrection central for you, Jonny Boy.

     

    So imagine if immortality were forced upon your weary completely disenchanted soul.You'd have nothing to lose. when all those horses came at him, he didn't seem the least scared, and his baby bro did just get dropped in front of him. I expect we'll see more stupid shit from ol' half dead king of the north next year. (king Rob was kinda dumb too, so was Ned for that matter).

     

    Think about every epic hero tale: the heroes are never that smart. if they were smart, they'd never take so many stupid risks. but theyre heroes, so they do and it works out. these stories help us dumb guys feel empowered. we can fuck shit up big time and still be crowned king.
