Quotes

Chris Schenck: It's about my dad. I don't like him.
Jesse Custer: Why don't you like him?
Chris Schenck: 'Cause he's mean. Not to me. I mean, he is, but you know, mostly...
Jesse Custer: He's mean to your mom. So do you want me to talk to someone?
Chris Schenck: Talking won't help.
Jesse Custer: Well, you're hangin' there like a shirt on the hook, so you got somethin' on your mind? Words, kid. What do you want?
Chris Schenck: I want you to hurt him.

I don't usually write reviews but i want to talk about the Preacher.
25 May 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

In quite some time a TV show hasn't been able to surprise me the way Preacher did. I will be honest, I have not read the comics and i do not plan to, because the show is more than enough for me.

The Preacher is not for the weak of heart, it strikes down on what you believe it will be and constantly makes you let go of any sort of forward thinking regarding the direction it will head. You cannot possibly fathom who the characters are, you cannot predict where they will go, I found that just letting go of any critical thinking while watching, and just enjoying where the show takes you makes for a wonderful experience.

Subtle but hilarious short bits of comic relief packed on such a serious subject has just boosted this T.V. show at the top of my list. Good action and an appealing story. I recommend it wholeheartedly for anyone willing to "waste their time" with a good show.
