Trivia

Ruth Negga, who plays Tulip O'Hare in this DC comic adaptation, has also appeared in a Marvel comic project. She had a recurring role on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013) as the villainous Raina for 17 episodes. Negga also played Nikki in Misfits (2009), a Channel 4 original production based around people with super powers. See more »

Goofs

Humperdoo is introduced as the twenty-fifth great grandson of Jesus Christ. This would mean that only twenty-seven generations were needed to reach the present day. Assuming that the historical Jesus died somewhere around 30 CE it would mean that the average age of fatherhood would need to be around seventy-five years old. However, this could be explained by the supernatural nature of the lineage or the show in general. See more »

Downhill after the first episode, but climbed back on top at the end
3 July 2016 | by Gretel1006See all my reviews

The first episode blew my socks off! I even watched it a second time. It kept my eyes glued to the screen the whole time. A 10 out of 10. The introduction of Tulip and the vampire (can't recall his name) were ingenious. Crazy action that was darkly comedic.

I just finished watching the 6th episode and feel so disappointed. It seems like the show is really dragging and it's hard to keep interested in it. There are definitely great scenes in each episode, they always involved over-the-top action. The action seems to be where the gold is and Tulip and the Vampire make for some good fun. I keep hoping it will take off. I think the town is dull. It is hard to transition from some crazy exciting lethal action to the dust blowing over barren land.

I do have faith that it will at some point turn around and take off. The first episode shows that it is possible. Hopefully the writers and directors will hear what people are saying about the show dragging and produce a brilliant second season. I'll keep watching and waiting.

Edit: finished the first season and the last two episodes, especially the last episode, was perfect! Yes! I knew they could do it. Those were the kind of episodes I was expecting to come from the mind of Seth Rogan.

P.s. Those two angels are great. It is hard not to find them endearing with their sweet murderous charm. Having hired a hit-man of sorts will certainly add some flavor to season two. I am eager to see the mayhem that the Preacher, his Tulip, and the Vamp will unleash.
