Goddamn Grail, I was intrigued by the prospect of Les Enfants du Sang being released into the wild.



 

What is Saint of Killers agenda now he's "killed" Satan? He's got no reason to go after Jesse now, although it seems like Arseface has got it in for him.

 

Great season though, not one duff episode.

Just binged season one, I watched the first couple when they came out but it never grabbed me for some reason. So glad I picked it back up, it's incredible! 

 

Apologies if this has been answered about a million times, early season 2 thing that's been bothering me:

 

Spoiler

How has Fiore managed to become so famous as The Amazing Ganesh so quickly? The main characters have only been out of town for a couple of days. How has he had the time to repeatedly Groundhog Day himself, do it in a way that resulted in him becoming recognised/"talented", and drawn the amount of fame required to get a large show, TV ads, merch etc? About three days ago he was down in Hell. 

 

I realise this is a silly thing to get annoyed about in a show containing angels and demons and angeldemons in coffee cans.

Officially renewed for season 4. Production is also moving to Australia. I'm not sure, but I think it's just filming there rather than the story being set there.

It's more likely that Australia has some nice tax credits and is versatile enough geographically to resemble parts of the United States.

Seth Rogan (Executive Producer) says season 4 will be the last. And apparently announced it's starting on 4 August.

Three episodes in to season 4 and it’s dismal. The pacing is all wrong. It seems to be meandering around looking for a point, which is absolutely not the feel you want for a final season. They’ve been riffing on the same gross out joke for three episodes now. Character motivations feel bent to the plot rather than vice versa. Cassidy, in particular, has been behaving illogically and the writers try to clumsily justify it by sticking in a traumatic flashback of his brother - whom we have never heard him mention up to this point. 

 

I think the most telling moment was a technically impressive and extended fight scene in episode three, which left me bored to tears. I’m going to give it one more episode, but right now Preacher feels like a show that didn’t expect, or even want, to be renewed.

Yeah, I've watched the first two episodes and I'm not really feeling it. No particular desire to watch the next one. Then again I think I said the same thing about the last series and ended up enjoying it, so maybe it'll turn around.

I only watched series 1-3 this summer and I've been looking forward to this but I've really not enjoyed the first two episodes.

 

Even Herr Starr

Spoiler

sporting an ear made from undead foreskin

failed to raise a smile.

 

I will see it the end but this has been a hell of a year for disappointing finales.  At least we still have The Expanse to look forward to.

Much better that was. Thought the fight was superb and not boring at all 

 

No one else spotted Garth Ennis as Cassidy’s dad then.

I think the biggest issue for me is that it felt nonsensical. Jessie will use the word when he wants to smoke in an airport, but not to talk down a load of armed psychos? You could argue that he just loves to fight, but when you consider what he wanted to achieve in that situation, choosing to do so was idiotic. 

 

I could imagine the writers saying ‘shit. Things have slowed down too much. Let’s throw in an epic fight scene because of reasons!’

He does that in the comics though, choosing when to use it. I think the emphasis is more on how he fights in the comics actually.

 

I am slightly non plussed to this point with the series, though I still think it improves on the source material when considering the program as a whole.

I'm massively confused by this series so far. Are all the scenes on the plane a flashback/forward?

 

I had to rewatch the end of episode two after he went in to the De Sade place, and in the next scene he was sat on an aeroplane. I couldn't work it out until I watched the latest episode.

 

Also what country are they in? It keeps flashing up Australia and Middle East but they were all in the same place a few scenes ago, and the truck driver and pilot etc have all been American :/

 

edit - didn't series 2 end with Herr Starr sending out an entire army from Masada? What happened there then?

I'm not sure of the EXACT time line, but yes, episode three happens before the end of episode 2

Wow!

 

3 episodes in and all I can say is..what a stinking, festering pile of garbage this has turned into for season 4.

 

Really don't think I can subject myself to anymore.

Yeah it's nonsensical but it has been the entire run to be fair. Although wouldn't 

 

Spoiler

Herr Starr have them cut off Cassidy's ear JUST ONCE instead of sewing a bunch of foreskins on? What did he think it was likely to look like?

He's not exactly a normal chap. That's the only rationale I can come up with - he's a bit cracked.

 

In the comics he got progressively more and more disfigured as the story continued so I think this is just part of following that path.

True, but it’s done in such an asinine way, and seemingly just to keep the joke going. As Starbreaker says, it would’ve made more sense to...

 

Have him take one of Cassidy’s actual ears, but then maybe the graft fails and it starts to rot on the side of Starr’s face - while he refuses to have it removed.

 

But I guess that’s not toilet humour enough. Preacher has always been gross to some point or another, but as a natural consequence of grimy characters and seedy lives - this part, by comparison, feels like someone jabbing their elbow in your ribs and going ‘Eh? See that? Eh?’

Latest episode is strong and very funny. Great stuff, I find the show isn’t as consistent as the boys as it meanders a lot. But when it delivers, it really delivers. This season has been the most consistent possibly due to it being the final.
