So if anyone has been reading my Preacher reviews –– if not, hello void I’m currently screaming into –– you may have noticed I have missed a few episodes, tonight included.
I decided to take a bit of a break from Preacher due to some of the content that I just feel like is shocking just to cause controversy and not necessarily contribute to the plot momentum. As much as I love Cassidy, Jesse and Tulip I was not really prepared for some of the recent episode scenes. For continuity sake, I will link to the AMC site where any readers can read Recaps of the past episodes. I am going to steel myself to possibly watch the finale next Monday.
I did enjoy watching Preacher up to a point, don’t get me wrong I am not afraid of some violence, dark comedy and nihilistic humor. I just can only take so much sacrilege as satire, and this is not just Superstar level caricature. Overall I did not enjoy this season, Season 1. It has had pacing issues throughout that resulted in a couple thrilling episodes and then several episodes where we were floundering in the limbo as much as Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy were in their unfruitful search. I truly enjoyed season 1 of Preacher more, but that may be due to the fact that I was not familiar with the source material, and therefore my first reference for Preacher was the background season 1. I am admitting that here, as to not offend the creators, original comic writers or fans that have been with Preacher since the days of print. My opinion is my own! I am hoping that when I jump into the season finale next week, I won’t have missed too much storyline, maybe just the insane scenes I have heard so much about! Fingers crossed, or hands clasped (whichever will help more!)
