If this show took itself a little more seriously, it'd be easier to take seriously.

This is another fine episode of Preacher. It really comes from having a good amount of familiarity with the characters at this point and seeing the randomness dialed down, as we make more sense of the craziness surrounding them.

It was nice to get a chance to learn more about what makes our characters tick and get a chance, however slight, to take a breath.

Unfortunate as it is to say, South Will Rise Again suggests Preacher isn't going to fix its biggest problems before the end of season one.

The viewers are getting small revelations in each episode, building a larger picture of a town and story with much more to uncover and that's part of the fun here.

"We grow or we die," Quincannon tells the mayor. Finally, Preacher is doing one of those things.

There's enough that works to make the failures worth ignoring, and "South Will Rise Again" gives a clear enough sense of rising action that it's possible to have faith that the writers do know what they're doing, more or less.

Preacher reached its halfway point this week and "South Will Rise Again" felt like a purposeful pivot toward something new.

Although it still manages to destabilize the audience and reposition the story in what initially seems like an odd place, the hour does more to connect the various threads than previous installments have.

There's a ton of cool aspects to this show and it has quickly established itself as something different in the TV landscape, and I'd love to see it continue to develop into something even more special.
