After years and years in development hell, Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s Preacher has finally made its way to the screen via AMC and from my view, we’re off to an okay start.
Our premise for the pilot is more or less right from the books. Genesis, a heavenly force with power that can rival God himself, comes to Earth and inhabits the body of preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) and gives him the word of the Lord. Meanwhile ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Irish vampire Cassidy (Joe Gilgun) happen to stumble into Jesse’s life and join the ride as angels try to track down and retrieve Genesis.

It follows Jesse Custer, a preacher of a small town in Texas with plenty of skeletons in his closet after he’s possessed by a supernatural being. Jesse is joined by his ex-girlfriend Tulip, as well as a drunken Irishmen named Cassidy, and the three take on a variety of [...]
Throngs of comic book loving geeks have been cautiously anticipating AMC’s adaptation of the comic Preacher. With the premiere coming up, footage has been sliding out. It seems the pilot was shown at SXSW and a certain joke may have infuriated a certain star of action flicks like Mission Impossible and Top Gun.
What I’m about to tell you is a tad spoilerish so you have been warned. The joke in question revolves around preachers of the world exploding in a gooey mess. One of the said explodees is the poster child for Scientology, Tom Cruise. He pops like a ripe cherry tomato I hear. Good fun.
That joke prompted a call from Cruise’s team to ask [...]
