Critic reviews for South Will Rise Again
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.
