Back in July I shared the Season 4 trailer for the AMC Studios Original Series “Preacher” which of course is loosely based on the DC Comics Vertigo series of the same name. If you missed that posting just click HERE to see it. The series begins its final go round this evening on AMC so let’s examine the poster, some premise and casting.
The Premise: Jesse Custer is a hard-drinking, chain-smoking preacher who, enduring a crisis of faith, becomes infused with an extraordinary power. He embarks on a quest to better understand his new gift and literally finds God, alongside his trigger-happy ex-girlfriend, Tulip, and new vampire friend, Cassidy. “Preacher” is an adaptation of the intense comic book series that was done by Steve Dillon and Garth Ennis. It ran as a part of the DC Comics Vertigo imprint for “75” total issues. The show does NOT follow the general canon of the printed page.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve already noted, I will just be tuning in via the DVR to see how it all ends. I wasn’t too pleased with the end result of this series but did like a few of the actors and their portrayal of the characters from the very NSFW comic book series. What about you readers? Are you and will you still be watching until this one ends? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
