Amen to the Preacher

Posted on

I don’t know anything about the comic book, but I do know I love Tulip, Arseface, and the lot of motley, rag tag characters in this AMC series produced by Seth Rogen.

Yeah, that arseface.

Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, Preacher is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power — one being closely tracked by two mysterious agents known as Fiore and DeBlanc. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vampire named Cassidy come together, and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

I am simply happy to watch something fresh.

Fulfilling a promise to his deceased father, one-time outlaw Jesse Custer returns home to West Texas to take over his dad’s church. Jesse’s mission, however, becomes twisted when his body is overcome by a cryptic force that unleashes within him a highly unconventional power. Together with hell-raising ex-girlfriend Tulip and Irish vagabond Cassidy, the preacher-in-training embarks on a journey to find God in a world inhabited by holy, hellish, and everything-in-between characters.

The darkly comedic “Preacher” is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s popular 1990s comic book franchise of the same name. Executive producers include Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”), and Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Superbad,” “Neighbors”)

Preacher airs on Sunday nights on AMC.
