Critic Reviews for Preacher Season 1

All Critics (70) | Top Critics (24)

Preacher's energy is apparent from the opening frames. Even if you find it initially confusing, you'll be glued because of the seductive powers of the series' darkly irreverent and anarchic tone, and happy to go along for the crazy ride.

Seeing how it all comes out in the bloody wash for now seems like a risk and an adventure worth taking.

Scripture and subtle wit are sprinkled through the outrageous violence and a particularly lovely vocal accompanies a grotesquely violent massacre aboard an airplane. This one will delight a certain narrow audience. You know who you are.

The series echoes Twin Peaks and The X-Files, but it's definitely plowing bizarre new territory, if you want to go there.

Preacher is a dark, funny and strange show, in the best way possible.

May 20, 2016 | Full Review…

It's an unusual piece of work that has real promise, not least of all because it is so unusual.

With characters this vivid and as much heart as the show seems to have (wink wink) it should provide some fun hijinks on Sundays for viewers.

Despite its violent excesses, Preacher reminds us that although our battle may be against the powers and principalities, the real struggle happens when two or three are gathered.

Aug 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Preacher goes from methodical and expected to being the most gravitating, heart rattling, adrenaline-filled punch in the mouth I've seen from a season premiere in years.

This is a good start for Preacher. Now let's see if it can become a great show.

    Charmingly strange, with intriguing characters. The plot slows at times, but its never enough to loose you, filled with twists and turns, drama and gore. Definately worth a watch.

  • Sep 19, 2018
    One of 2016s most pleasant surprise. While it has a weak finale the rest of the season is over the top fun.
