Preacher: The TV Series


#204

Except that’s one instance where a TV show format actually works to its advantage.
This season felt frozen solid.


#205

They ought to keep exploding towns then they can do a spin-off…

Preacher: Eff-Bee-Aye

As a team of agents take an interest in this trail of dead towns, that all have one thing in common…


#206

Maybe there’s a good reason for that? :wink:


#207

Very much so! But sometimes experimenting with the boundaries can lead to interesting results. I thought such was the case here, but I completely understand every viewer like Ben who is frustrated with the decision.


#208

I wouldn’t be as critical if the ep or so before they hadn’t done these character development moves that then don’t matter because the town blew up.


#209

Yeah, which is why they should have just done it in the first episode.


#210

Well, the show had a crescendo of “absurdity” all along, which culminated in the town blowing up, in a very absurd manner as well… from the introduction of the voice in ep1, Cassidy, Tulip, the hotel sequence, the meat King’s shenanigans, etc… to the town blowing up. Now, I don’t remember the comicbook that well, since I speed-read it a long time ago, but from what I remember the comicbook also had that absurd tone. So, in that regard, I thought the town blowing up fit pretty well with the rest of it.


#211

Looks like they’re not going to following the comic’s road trip destination order at all.


#212

Wouldn’t have expected that, given how the town was a conglomerate of towns in the comic.


#213

To be honest I think the comic is a bit of a mess. Huge distraction arcs and not paced right for 70 issues.


#214

So much dislike.


#215

It definitely has a huge wandering problem.
But I can overlook it cause the cast themselves are wandering.


#216

Man, you’re not kidding, some of those arcs must have really distracted you. Preacher only ran for 66 issues! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#217

He might be counting the one-shots


#218

I didn’t think there was a need for pinpoint accuracy. I think the Saint had 4 issues and Arseface, Jodie and Starr all had one shots. I don’t think Cassaday did but I’m not sure. It’s been 20 years and I never revisited the books.


#219

I think the Saint’s was 2 issues but spot on the rest.


#220

Yeah I’m just ribbing. I happen to agree. I actually gave up on Preacher in singles because of it.

Then it’s 75. :smiling_imp:

Cassidy did have a one shot. It covered his first visit to New Orleans.


#221

:angel:
So we were both right


#222

That’s the best one, IMO.


#223

I liked the Starr one. He’s a pretty interesting villain who became too much of a cartoon character. I can’t wait to see him on screen.
