TV Review: Preacher

PreacherI’m in a very confused state of mind going into this week’s review. It’s Preacher, the new AMC show, that has me perplexed. Here’s what it’s about:

“What if an angel and a demon procreate? What would that offspring be? Would it be holy or demonic or both? Preacher Is that tale. The offspring has no body, just a soul. That soul needs a body and chose Jessie. A preacher from Texas with a loss of faith and a drinking problem. The offspring called Genesis bonds with Jessie giving him the word of God. What he says is done.”

I just can’t figure out how I feel about this show. I have a laundry list of good and bad things to say about it. It’s like when you sit down, fold a piece of paper in half, and list the pros and cons, but you come up even and still can’t make up your mind.

Mainly, I come away for most show confused. It’s all over the friggin’ place, so much so that quite often it loses my interest. Maybe it’s because I haven’t read the comic series. Maybe it’s because I haven’t been watching Talking Preacher, and I’m dense and need someone to explain what I’m supposed to be leaving each show knowing. If you ask me, that alone makes it a bad show.

Still, I’m into the characters most of the time. They feel right out of a comic book, and I love that. Dominic Cooper who plays Preacher then lose my interest, and I’m back wondering why I’m watching. Same goes for the storyline. No consistency with this series. But the cinematography is awesome!

Why does Preacher keep losing me only to draw me back in with each new show? Why do I keep watching? Considering we’re 9 episodes in, I might have to tell you if something clicks during season 2, but right now I’m taking the cowards way out and rating Preacher right in the middle.

My Rating: 3 out of 5 Bloody Brains

Please leave zombie movie suggestions in the comments.
I prefer movies rated below a 4 on IMDB.

    • I like how you say leaving something for the viewer’s imagination, Blaze. I do find my brain going in many directions and I think that’s what’s keeping me watching.

    • I didn’t mention it, but I did like how last week’s show ended with the angels. Next week could go in so many awesome directions.
