News & Interviews for Preacher: Season 1
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.
Audience Reviews for Preacher: Season 1
An entertaining and provocative supernatural series from AMC, Preacher is remarkably daring and gritty. Based on a Garth Ennis comic series, Season 1 follows a country preacher named Jesse Custer who gets possessed by a strange spirit that gives him the power to command people to do his will, leading to a pair of angels to come and try to remove it. Dominic Cooper is especially good as Jesse, giving an outstanding performance. And co-star Joseph Gilgun does an excellent job as the comic relief, playing a hundred year old Irish vampire. Also, Jackie Earle Haley makes for a terrific villain, stealing ever scene he's in. However, there are some storytelling problems as there are a lot of flashbacks and tangents that make the episodes feel disjointed at times. Yet, the characters are well-written and it all sort of comes together in the end. While it has a few weak points, Preacher has a unique vision and delivers a solid first season.
