Hey there my serial television loving readers, I wondered if you ever gave the small screen adaptation of the hit Vertigo series “Preacher” a chance when it ran during its first season a few months ago. Did you like it? I watched it and have to admit that I was left for want with it despite liking the work that Cooper and Gilgun did. Anyway, a second season is coming and here is the first teaser trailer of it.
The Premise: “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: Since the show first aired, the media world lost the great Steve Dillon and we toasted his memory on THIS LINK. He was some artist and a reason that the “Preacher” comic series was so popular. Now as far as the show goes, I didn’t really enjoy the first season outside of a few minor points. I felt that they changed the general flow of the series that I knew and loved simply because they could. Sure things have to change when being converted from printed page to screen but there was so much that it made me scratch my head. I still have the series programmed on my DVR and I guess I will be watching after I record two or three episodes. If it doesn’t appeal to me then I am dumping it. The teaser trailer is not something I usually post my larger thoughts on but since I was heading into the second season with a largely negative viewpoint I figured why wait. Let’s see if a longer and more comprehensive trailer comes to pass. What do you readers think about the tease? Are you intrigued?
