Storyline

A preacher sets out on a mission to make the almighty himself confess his sin of abandoning the world.

Trivia

The magazine rack seen briefly early on in this episode has a Preacher comic on it. See more »

Goofs

Cassidy has tattoos. However, he heals, and since a tattoo starts out by being skin "damage", it is unlikely any tattoos applied would survive any healing session he undergoes. See more »

Quotes

Cassidy: Jesus, what kind of a preacher are you?
Jesse Custer: The lousy kind.
Cassidy: No, I'm sorry, mate. I've seen the lousy kind. As long as you're not walking around with a little kiddy's arsehole around your finger like a bloody wedding ring, I'd say you were ahead of the game, there.

A non-addictive replacement for Ambien
3 June 2016 | by hoeechSee all my reviews

Since I'm not a fanboy of the comic, I can approach this show with a completely unbiased opinion.

It put me to sleep. Four times.

It took five attempts to get through this first episode without drifting off to sleep at some point during the viewing. While I'm sure that fans of the comic are squealing with glee at the prospect of their favourite comic being adapted for the small screen, I sincerely hope that future episodes include elements to make this show .... what's the word I'm looking for ...... bearable. While I'm sure that the show is being faithful to the source material, so far that doesn't speak well of said source material. It's only because AMC has delivered surprise hits like "The Walking Dead" and "Breaking Bad" that I'm giving this latest effort the time of day. If it's still anesthetizing me by the third episode, I'll relegate it to the "They can't all be gems" pile.
