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.
