Ron Hogan Sep 5, 2017

The latest Preacher season 2 episode is funny, suspenseful and a good reminder of where the power really lies. Spoilers ahead...

2.12 On Your Knees

The Grail has proven its power on several occasions, but there has been nothing quite as impressive as the feat that Herr Starr's organisation has been able to pull off this week. Jesse Custer is faced with an enemy that cannot be controlled, cannot be reasoned with, cannot be beaten or killed, and the only people who are able to get him back in line come to Jesse's aid because The Grail asked them to. That's the sort of thing that Jesse doesn't have, even with the gift of Genesis inside him. The Saint was the only thing he couldn't stop, until he gave a piece of his soul to it, »

‘Preacher’ Review: Jesse and Tulip Get Domestic in a Flashback-Heavy Episode About Everything They’ll Never Have

17 July 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Season 2 of “Preacher” has been built around the idea of the nightmare past: Eugene and his infamous cellmate across the hall have each been given a bit of backstory to help fill in the gaps between the broken people we see on screen and the life they enjoyed somewhere in their respective histories.

This week, it was Jesse and Tulip’s turn. After rekindling their affection for each other in the show’s casino detour, the doomed supercouple of “Preacher” has spent the past few episodes cruising right past each other. The opening shot of “Dallas” shows Jesse literally disoriented by Tulip’s revelation that Viktor, the owner of the house where she was being held against her wishes, is still technically her husband.

‘Preacher’ Review: ‘Viktor’ Takes Us Into Each Character’s Personal Hell — And The Worst Is Still On Its Way

10 July 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eugene might be the one trapped in an eternal prison, reliving the worst day of his life in a cell within shouting distance from history’s most infamous dictator, but this week’s “Preacher” suggested that he might not the only one in his own personal Hell.

The pursuit that seemed so noble in the early going of Season 2 has soured somewhat, both on Jesse’s part and in the overall placement of the show. No longer seeking out God in one of the 138 New Orleans area jazz clubs, Jesse and Cassidy stumble on a familiar face when watching late-night TV.

Meanwhile, Tulip faces the horde of henchmen sent to capture her at the close of last week’s episode. Wandering around a mansion filled with minions and spitting children, everyone seems all too eager to ignore her, as if she were someone sentenced to share a bunk next-door to Eugene. »

Preacher season 2 episode 4 review: Viktor

Ron Hogan Jul 11, 2017

Once again, Preacher finds a way to make violence entirely too much fun in the latest bold episode...

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Fargo season 3 episode 1 review: The Law Of Vacant Places

2.4 Viktor 

There are a lot of things you can say that Preacher has done that not a lot of other shows can claim. It's shot off more penises than any other show on basic cable. It's a show with a vampire that isn't a show specifically about vampires. It's killed more people in three episodes this season than every Godfather movie combined. However, one of the weirdest things you can say about Preacher is that it's made Hitler into a likable character. Yes, Eugene, that Hitler.

In the world of Preacher, Hell is an interesting place. It's essentially a combination of solitary confinement in a modern-day prison mixed with a little bit of the paranormal waiting room in Beetlejuice. »

‘Preacher’ Review: The Year’s Best Fight Scene is the Highlight of a Neon-Infused Noir Episode

3 July 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Well, at least no one died this week. In the present, anyway.

After the Saint of Killers-inspired bloodbaths of the opening of Season 2, “Preacher” set its gaze on New Orleans, the ultimate destination teased at the outset. The camaraderie that made those first few installments so freeing and energizing fell by the wayside in “Damsels,” but what took its place was a mystery that dug deeper into the philosophical and delivered another prime action set-piece as a chaser.

Before we resumed with Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy in the Big Easy, it was high time the show finally addressed the Hellephant in the room and gave us some Eugene-related answers. Seeing the unfortunate teenager lively and spry and free of any physical or emotional scars was even more jarring than the Jesse and Tulip flashback at the close of Season 1.

Preacher season 2 episode 3 review: Damsels

Preacher wastes no time in its latest season two episode. Here's our spoiler-filled review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.3 Damsels

Of the characters on Preacher, there's only one that's essentially a truly good person. Cassidy is selfish, Jesse is violent and temperamental, Tulip is involved in some serious criminal activities... the only character that's a good guy, pitiable in his way, is Eugene. He's so positive and so upbeat, he always seems to be trying to make others feel better—whether we're talking about his father or Jesse—and every little bit of his background that we see only makes him all the more pitiable. In TV tropes terms, he's a woobie. Every nice thing he tries to do only ends up getting him hurt, and it all goes back to his very origin. »

The Walking Dead season 7 episode 15 review: Something They Need

Ron Hogan Mar 27, 2017

The characterisation feels a little off in the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead season 7. Spoilers ahead...

This review contains spoilers.

7.15 Something They Need

Is it a step forward for The Walking Dead when the creative crew don't stretch out a cliffhanger and opt for a simple resolution? When Sasha ran firing into the Saviors compound, I had assumed that it would be a week or longer before we found out what happened to her. Fortunately, that's not the case. Last episode, Sasha ran off; this episode, Sasha wakes up in one of the Savior compound's many windowless closets. Thankfully, it's not as »

‘Walking Dead’ Recap: Everyone’s Allegiances Are Tested in ‘Something They Need’

26 March 2017 7:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched the penultimate episode of season 7 of “The Walking Dead,” titled “Something They Need.”

If there’s one place where “The Walking Dead” consistently delivers, it’s raids. Rick and co. are so damn good at running up into other settlements and taking what they want, as much a testament to their apocalyptic skills as the show’s directors. In this case, the credit goes to Michael Slovis, who previously directed the infamous “Thank You” episode and worked as cinematographer on the unimpeachable “Breaking Bad.”

But before we get into the great action of “Something They Need,” let’s take a step back and recap what’s going on in the rest of this crazy world. Sasha, unsurprisingly, has gone and gotten herself captured by the Saviors. Some creep named David visits her cell and immediately starts throwing out rape vibes when she asks for water. It »

'The Walking Dead' Recap: Knives Out

26 March 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Let's begin with the ending, both of this latest The Walking Dead and the one before it. As it turns out, that Daryl-shaped figure who showed up in the closing seconds of last week's installment was in fact the show's other scraggly-haired, crossbow-wielding badass: Dwight. And in the final minutes of this week's episode – "Something They Need" – Rosita reveals that Negan's reluctant lieutenant saved her from the shootout at the Sanctuary at some point after the closing credits. He then apparently volunteered to be imprisoned in Alexandria, just to prove »
