Fuckin' thing sucked.

I mean, it was kinda okay at parts but it was like a fuckin' Looney Tunes cartoon or some poo poo. Tonally it was flip flopping so violently I thought my neck was going to snap off. Jesse's actor mumbles everything, Tulip makes no sense, Cassidy's okay.

seth rogan stop ruining comic book franchises you fat gently caress

Preacher was dope and deserved better. Only good part was Arseface's mask thingy looks right.

i meant "have you read it recently" in the sense preacher wasn't really dope and doesn't deserve better.

I've never read Preacher (Or any comics really) but I found the pilot fun and enjoyable, but I'm a fan of watching Ruth Negga do anything, and Joe Gilgun is an amazingly talented rear end in a top hat on screen.

the walking dead comic is actually worse than the tv show, that is what is amazing about the comic

do you know what does walking dead better than walking dead?



yeah, that is an archie comic. jughead's dog gets run over by reggie and dies. jughead can't take it so he brings it to sabrina the teenage witch asking her to bring the dog back to life. she does, the dog comes back wrong, bites jughead, and he starts infecting everybody.



the comic is played completely straight, has better characterization than the walking dead, and way way better art

here is archie killing his dad with a shovel


there is stuff with dogs in it that made me cry

The pilot's tone is all over the loving shop, but it's key to look at it in terms of the source material. It's a big serious book about a cowboy going out to find God Almighty and take him to task, but it's also a book full of Big Chocolate Fists and cokehead angels and all kinds of goofy bullshit. This translates to the screen in a really weird way, but it was a weird book. The parts that worked worked really well, I'm not sold, I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes from here.

Adapting this to TV is almost like adapting Metal Gear Solid to TV. Some thing's are gonna be different, just make peace with it.

Yeah, adapting Preacher was always going to be kind of tricky, because in comics you can just sort of get away with more...outlandish things...than you really can in real life. At least they are putting effort into giving this adaptation it's own identity, but by the end of the Pilot, I didn't feel like they got the "mood" that Preacher has. Which is a real shame because they even got the great Willie Nelson version of "It Was the Time of the Preacher" for the start.

Maybe the second episode will be easier to enjoy now that I've already gotten gobsmacked by all the changes.

You read comics op. You're a loving idiot that enjoys lowest common denominator bullshit. It should surprise no one when a lovely work of fiction turns into a lovely television show.
