TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Cohesively summing up a bizarre and audacious first season while offering a prologue for the series to come, Preacher's finale feels especially well-earned.

Critic Reviews for Call and Response

The season finale of AMC's supernatural comic-book adaptation Preacher was everything we wanted it to be; funny, cathartic and gleefully destructive.

By the end of "Call and Response," it honestly felt like the entire season was set-up, to introduce the real series to come.

[This episode] might be the most horrific installment of "Preacher" yet, not only because of the shocking violence that overruns Annville, but because of the existential question at its core.

You still have Cassidy and Tulip, two of the most electric characters anywhere on television, together with an all-powerful and complicated protagonist.

While the slow pace was a turn-off for some, it paid off in the beautifully surreal finale 'Call and Response'

May the people of Annville rest in peace and Jesse Custer drive off never to return. Good riddance.

So ends this chapter of Jesse Custer's story, one that offered plenty of surprising moments for both readers of the comic and new viewers alike.

"Call and Response" as a whole was illustrative of a season of TV that never entirely figured out what story it was telling, what its focus should be, or how best to spend its time in this particular time and place of the main characters' lives.

And I'm happy to say that Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin's adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's acclaimed DC/Vertigo comic sticks the landing.
