A series that doesn't take itself too seriously and yet is chock full of Grade A performances and solid writing.
There are only a few episodes of Preacher left before the Season 3 finale, and the pace continues to pick up in the latest episode.
Note, the clever rearranging of his name to the complex anagram: Hilter! This is that suspension of disbelief BS that allows Clark and Superman to be indistinguishable because of some glasses and Shea Moisture hair product.
The things that took me by surprise on Hilter may be in the comics, but to me, they are brand new -- which makes the show that much more enjoyable.
Let's touch on Hitler for a minute. I was so glad to see him step back into his evil Hitler ways. For a while there, they were painting him in a brighter light, showing that Hitler has a good side. Interesting, but a leopard never changes his spots.
Up until this point, we've known the characters have a complicated and toxic history, but that history has been more conceptual than something that read on the actor's faces.
Overall, "Hitler" hits the mark most of the time, but I was left feeling like Preacher continues to pull its punches a bit. But when a punch truly lands, it makes for some truly brilliant moments of television.
Though the sentence feels strange to type out, Hitler is the best episode yet this season, setting up what promises to be a rip-roaring final act. It also assuages my fear that the series would continue trying to make Hitler a sympathetic character.
