I didn´t see a thread and the old one (https://forums.somethingawful.com/s...hreadid=3824182) for season 2 is closed, so:

Season 3 of Preacher is here! And in fact already two episodes in.

https://www.amc.com/shows/preacher

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEpMnzW9mOc

To recap: Tulip is dead, Jesse lost his power and Cassidy hates him. On the bright side, Hitler and Eugene escaped from Hell!

Since Jesse kept Cassidy from turning Tulip into a vampire to save, his only choice is to visit his dear old voodoo-practicing grandma to somehow bring her back, even if it cost him what is left of his soul.

I'm watching. It's decent so far. I've read the book that covers these characters and I have no complaints which is good. I was waiting to see if someone was going to make the thread and was surprised it took this long. probably less viewers coming from season 2

Did you miss the bit where Herr Starr went to India this episode? And the show's definitely going back to Hell at some point, and then there are the ongoing misadventures of Hitler and Eugene.

I wouldn't be surprised if Cassidy and Tulip gently caress off without Jesse though, depending on how TC's little crush plays out.

I was a little weirded out how quickly the woman she wants to kill suddenly shows up and Jesse doing that felt like dumb plot armor. I get why they can't be taken out right away but that still felt lame and they could have written a better scenario for all that to happen.

It also looked like it had a budget of $5, and not in the way the show will do that on purpose.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this season so far. Season 2 started off so well and then spent most of the rest of the season spinning it's wheels in an apartment.

I did like the shootout that Herr Starr had before the call came in about Jesse.

I find the show pretty boring overall, but I keep watching it for the occasional awesome scene that reminds me of the shows potential. All the pieces are there for a great show, but it just doesn't come together.

I really hope the entirety of season 3 won't revolve around Jesse scheming to get back his soul, so he can leave the mansion.

Is TC at all like in the comics where he fucks everything from birthday cakes to fish? Just a complete over the top degenerate?

I was a fan of the comics and have the whole series somewhere, but the show kind of fizzled for me around s2. It's not just one thing, it's a series of things. Just kind of, boring, with contrived scenarios for 'cool' scenes. My favorite parts have been any time they play around with someone being immortal, and the Saint of Killers origin was fantastic. (obviously way different than the books but I liked how they did it)

With a few weeks vacation coming up I'll probably catch up and do a bunch of ranting.

Preacher is in my top three comics of all time, and I think TC and Jody are loving perfect. But then, I've loved this show like crazy since episode one, and don't have any of the negative opinions anyone else seems to have, so ymmv.

TC hasn't hosed anything on the show though so if loving something is important to your enjoyment you'll hate him.

I mean, TC's been in 10 minutes across two episodes, and they're clearly building to something with him. Give it time.

Closest thing to this so far was a pretty funny scene where he explains a dream he had to Cassidy.

I've enjoyed both episodes so far, but I just have this sinking feeling like the main cast is going to be largely set in the one location for most of the season again ala most AMC series, and I just really, really, really want more of a road trip aspect to be present.

Did the top of Starr's head get grazed by a bullet when Tulip started shooting? There's a stripe of blood that he wipes off, maybe it's foreshadowing the comic what Jesse does to him later?

Is it foreshadowing when it's a thing that happened and they showed it happen? The result isn't in yet but I mean it's kinda just right there.

Good episode. Awfully convenient casting for Dog God, and the whole "it was my plan all along" bit, but I still liked it. Between Tulip and God, I think they're both right. A little from Column A, and a little from B. Cassidy screwing things up again!

I'm glad they revealed that hat because oh man. Maybe Jesse's been wanting to avoid the tombs so he doesn't need to put that musty bucket on his dome.

Cassidy's been getting slowly scummier over time, and I'm glad for it because he's an actual monster in the comics.

Looking forward to Tulip getting something to to other than being an attractive fuckup.

I understand it doesn’t really translate to television but I do miss the bullshit sessions Jesse and Cassidy would get into in the comics. It goes a long way to selling their friendship. Without it in the show it makes Cassidy’s devotion to Jesse in the first two seasons seem much more desperate.

A good pun is like a good steak: A rare medium well done

Season 3 hasn't blown me away so far. First three episodes feel a little bit off in their delivery, although occasionally you get some gold. I dug Jody's fight with Jesse where he casually almost drops a pickup truck on his head, then brushes it off as "foolin around"

But I think they need to do a bit better with making the plantation and everyone who lives there FEEL imminently dangerous. That translated well in the comics because Jody was basically a sadist and you were always on edge when someone was in a scene with him.

As things stand now, I'm hoping we don't spin our wheels at the plantation the whole season just for Jesse to get his soul back at the very end. I want to see the Allfather being disgusting, and everything that happens at Masada.

Cassidy's power level fluctuates a lot, doesn't it? In the pilot, he could take on an entire planefull of vampire hunters. Now, all it takes to defeat him is a bump on the head with a rifle butt. I would like to see some more vampire asskicking.
