I'm in -- totally hooked after just 1 episode. I knew very little about the series going in, something about a preacher, supernatural stuff, AMC Network... that's about it. Sounded like a maybe, turns out it's a home-run :-)
The first episode hits the ground running with a dizzying array of plot twists and characters, then quickly turns into a category F-5 tornado.
Blockbuster production quality, inventive storytelling, good acting, action-packed, top-shelf effects -- there hasn't been anything like it before, and while other networks will undoubtedly try, I can't see anyone being able to duplicate "Preacher".
If you're looking for a roller-coaster ride of a TV series, one that you'll hate waiting a week until the next installment, "Preacher" is it.
I love this show! Plus, that's a new way, to me at least, for using corncob! This show is hilarious, scary and brilliant! The cinematography is beautiful and the music only adds to the comical nature of the fight scenes. I love the characters, no spoilers, but there are some really well written characters of whom we only glimpse a little of in this Pilot. The main lead character is sad, lonely, disconnected. I imagine his life is going to be far more exciting, very, very soon...
This is already on my, 'LOVE LOVE LOVE!' list. PLEASE let them keep this insanity going!!!
Can't recommend highly enough, just my opinion. I'm going to re-watch the episode right now. :D :D :D
