Preacher Season 2 Review

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Preacher is not for everyone. If the cheesily perfect outer space-faring opening minutes of the show’s premiere season weren’t warning enough, the next ten hours eventually amassed an impressive assortment of spontaneous combustion, an Irish vampire with a machine gun for a mouth, mind-control super powers, immortal angels, a supernatural telephone, a guy appropriately named Arseface, and – eventually, confoundingly – the quest for God.

It was – is – a lot to take in. Preacher season 2 has no room for your confusion; the opening two hours of the new season are manic and exhausting in the absolute best sense, because they feel like they have a focused, meaningful purpose. It’s like the show is just getting started, with a road trip plotline that has the figurehead of all existence in its sights, and a pure evil cowboy from hell in its rear-view mirror.

  • MoreHorror
By Seth Metoyer

MoreHorror.com

Preacher is one of my favorite series currently running on TV and it's going to be released on Blu-ray and DVD October 4.

The first season takes a while to get going, mostly because of character development but it really gets going. Lots of gore and is damned hilarious in spots. Very interesting characters as well. Can't wait for season 2. Read more about the upcoming release below.

From the Press Release

Based on the popular 1990s cult comic book series of the same name, the critically-acclaimed Preacher: Season One arrives on Blu-ray™ and DVD October 4 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The darkly comedic, hard-hitting, supernatural thrill-ride follows Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper, TV’s “Agent Carter,” Captain America: The First Avenger) who, after a supernatural event at his church, is thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

Preacher Clip Sees Cassidy Make A Deal With The Angels

AMC has debuted (via Hitfix) a new sneak peek from this Sunday’s episode of Preacher, titled “Monster Swamp.” In it, Cassidy (Joe Gilgun) meets with Fiore (Tom Brooke) and DeBlanc (Anatol Yusef) in an effort to discover more about the mysterious entity that’s inhabiting his pal Jesse (Dominic Cooper).

During their first couple of encounters, ol’ Cass actually “killed” the cowboy hat-wearing duo – so he obviously knows there’s something out of the ordinary about them. The vampire’s first guess was that they were clones, but during the last episode Fiore admitted that they were in fact from heaven – in other words, they’re angels.

Cassidy seems to be striking a deal with the pair in this clip, but it’s hard to imagine he’d betray Jesse outright and more than likely has a few tricks up his sleeve. Of course, that doesn’t mean he

Exclusive: Cassidy makes a deal with the devi...angels in this 'Preacher' clip
Jesse Custard (Dominic Cooper) is possessed by something with great power. This is a problem. Or a blessing. Depends on how you look at it really. But regardless, it’s definitely a miracle. And the problem with this particular miracle is it's more stubborn than barnacles on a ship’s hull. But the angels DeBlanc (Anatol Yusef) and Fiore (Tom Brooke) have a plan. From their perspective, it’s a good plan. It ends with the thing inside Jesse no longer inside of him. Thankfully the Preacher has Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) in his corner. Kind of. Mostly. Right up until the end. But hey, the broker has to get their cut of the deal, right? In the HitFix exclusive clip above (and below), get a kick out of two angels and a vampire negotiating about a human. Preacher airs this Sunday at 9/8c on AMC.

Preacher episode 3 review: The Possibilities

facebook

twitter

google+

Preacher introduces two of the funniest characters on TV in this week's deftly balanced episode, The Possibilities...

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 The Possibilities

Preacher is a world full of interesting, weird characters. There's not a person on the show who isn't messed up in some way or another, from the stars all the way down to the one-off characters. Preacher has one of the deepest benches of interesting characters that you'll find on TV, and one of the highlights of this particular episode is the two mysterious men who are trying to recover the parasite from within Jesse Custer. Fiore and DeBlanc are two of the funniest characters on TV, and any episode that features them hanging out with Cassidy is going to be a funny one indeed.

Every moment with Tom Brooke and Anatol Yusef on screen is a delight, and the angels get to have a couple of fun scenes this week. Their first scene is squaring off with Sheriff Root, which is just a wonderful bit of comedy. Root is questioning, quite rightly, why the two men are there, and why they aren't seeking help from the local authorities if they are the government. The fact that Fiore and DeBlanc didn't actually have a cover story set up before Root shows up is clear from the very beginning, as the two contradict one another or talk over one another with every question before DeBlanc asserts himself and takes over the conversation. Root undercuts the comedy with a pretty horrible story about child abuse and murder (why wouldn't he?) but when Fiore and DeBlanc uncover their cache of weapons, it only underscores just how little attention the two angels actually pay to human suffering; they just wanted Hugo to leave so they could get into their combat gear and go after Genesis.

Of course, since it's Fiore and DeBlanc, they fail miserably. Armed with heavy weapons and bullet-proof vests and helmets, the two make their walk towards Jesse's church only to be run down by Cassidy driving the church van; Scott Winant makes sure this scene comes out of nowhere, and we get a build-up for a huge payoff laugh. Two more bodies to dispose of. At least, until, the two men show up again while Cassidy is looking for garbage bags to dispose of the bodies he'd left outside. Cassidy's 'kill first, ask questions never' paranoia works out in his favour, usually, but it doesn't help the angels any. However, the scenes are very funny, and Brook and Yusef deserve all the screen time they get, because their deadpan comedy is very much needed as the rest of the episode gets a little bit heavier.

That's one of the interesting tonal dilemmas that Preacher has. Just what kind of show is it? Is it a supernatural drama? Certainly, Jesse Custer seems to be wrestling with his tremendous power. Is it a conspiracy drama? Well, Danni (Julie Dretzin) wasn't dropping off information to a man at a snuff film convention just for fun. There must be some power behind the appearance of the angels, as well. Cassidy and Jesse could easily fill out the lead roles in a buddy comedy, while Tulip seems determined to turn every episode into a crime caper. It's funny, but it's also very dark, usually at the same time. There's some serious philosophical discussions, but also plenty of pop culture references.

Chris Kelly, who wrote tonight's episode, gets some credit for being able to work that delicate balance. I mean, there's an implied snuff film, and one of the characters is abusing both his wife and son, and yet the show packs laughs in wherever possible. Every horrible thing is counterbalanced by some comedy, be it dark like the many deaths of Fiore and DeBlanc or light like Cassidy wandering around in a poncho and giant straw hat to hide from the sun. There's just enough lightness to counterbalance the terrible things that are going on just below the surface. I mean, in one small town you've got a paedophile, a failed suicide, at least one wife-beater, and that's not even going into the mysterious stranger watching snuff films or the fact that Odin Quincannon has to be some kind of monster given he's being played by Jackie Earle Haley.

Will the show be able to keep up that deft balance between light and dark? I don't know, but I can certainly appreciate the great pains they're taking to stay true to the source material while making it slightly more palatable for cable television purposes. Those are the big questions for the show as a viable television entity. Can it keep Preacher fans happy without running afoul of television marketing executives? Can the show delve into dark places or philosophically difficult areas without alienating viewers? So far so good, but if this show doesn't get any protest think-pieces written about it before the end of the season, I think it's not doing its job.

‘Preacher’ Stars Break Down That Surprising DeBlanc and Fiore Twist

‘Preacher’ Stars Break Down That Surprising DeBlanc and Fiore Twist
AMC’s “Preacher” had a very bloody Episode 2. Although it initially looked like two characters, DeBlanc and Fiore, were getting the ax early on in the season, there’s more to these two mysterious hitmen than meets the eye. Variety spoke with Anatol Yusef (DeBlanc) and Tom Brooke (Fiore) on what to expect from their supernatural characters this season, the experience of shooting that crazy fight scene with Cassidy, and how surprisingly easy it was to get cast in AMC’s new drama, produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin.

Have either of you read the comic?

Yusef: No, but Garth Ennis was my neighbor in New York. So that’s my relationship to the comic before the job. Trying to be true to a character is a slightly dangerous game because we’re not the writers. You get a lot of information from the script so it

“Preacher” is one of the most unique shows on television right now

We may just be in the Golden Age of television, ladies and gentlemen. I know people have said that for years, but as someone who mostly sticks to film and only occasionally goes in on a TV show, it takes a lot for me to notice things on the small screen. A new exception to that is Preacher, which has just launched on AMC and is looking like a special program. It’s unlike anything else on TV right now, which I can always appreciate. It’s gory, humorous, sad, and serious, all in equal measure, which I really respond to. In short, I think we have a show to really pay attention to as we head into the summer. The show is an adaptation of the cult comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis. The premise is ridiculous, I grant you that, as it follows a preacher

The first sees Fiore (Tom Brooke) and DeBlanc (Anatol Yusef) perform a bizarre ritual on a sleeping Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper).

The next clip features Tulip (Ruth Negga) making friends at a poker game. For the chuckling fella behind her's sake, let's hope she's in a good mood.
