Satan tasks The Saint of Killers to bring two damned souls back to Hell.

I know adaptations make changes to source material, but this makes me glad I haven't bothered watching this and never will.

Boojum2k: Satan tasks The Saint of Killers to bring two damned souls back to Hell.

I figure this Satan subplot is leading up to the big moment from the Saint of Killers miniseries. Just like the Eccarius story, they rearranged it so that happens in present day instead of overloading the story with so many flashbacks it turns into Lost.

The origin of the Saint of Killers was one of the highlights of the entire comic series, and fit perfectly into its era.

They were actually able to tell that story pretty well without having to resort to a flashback.

Not if the headline is remotely accurate.

I liked this episode.  What is premise of show? Never seen before.

This season is definitely on an uphill swing for me.

A preacher's son who gives up a life of crime to become a preacher himself and who was raised by his witch grandmother is possessed by the spawn of an angel and a demon and then he and his felon girlfriend and vampire buddy engage in a series of hijinks while searching for God?

Thanks.  Good episode yesterday.

I've been so busy I haven't finished the 1st season, not for lack of wanting. I figured I get around to it eventually but I am very pleased to know that Humperdoo is in the show. I will occasionally emphasize a stupid point by declaring " Humper dumper dido!"

Who wrote that coffin escape sequence? Scott Gimple?

I can't agree.  The whole "hanging around in the Sultry South voodoo camp" thing has just gone on for me.  They need to get Jesse and the crew back on track.

I honestly haven't thought an episode was this much fun since the car chase in last season's opener.

Boojum2k: Satan tasks The Saint of Killers to bring two damned souls back to Hell.

The comic series ended 18 years ago. When you started reading the books in 1995, would you have expected a TV series based on a property from 1977 to have gone on without changes?

I've enjoyed the series as what I believe it was meant to be: A re-examination of the Preacher story, retold for a new audience. I've been turned off by certain details (Furry-God is a little on the nose), but the core is there: A badass preacher with a criminal past and a penchant for making terrible decisions hooks up with his former-assassin girlfriend who has a penchant for making terrible decisions and an Irish vampire with a penchant for making terrible decisions. They go on a journey that exposes the audience to the gritty weirdness on the fringes of the world, confront their pasts and hunt God.

I'm rather glad they didn't slavishly follow the books, because I'm someone who had read the books a million times. Each time a new trade came out, I read the other ones through from Issue #1. As long as there's a nuclear explosion that ends with the Saint of Killers at Ground Zero going, "Not enough gun," I'm good. And hell, even if not. Because I get to discover weird shiat that thrills and disgusts me, and that's precisely what the original comics were about.

The show has less sexual perversion and more moral nastiness, and I don't feel as if Jesse's as believable as a badass, but other than that, I'm in. If you liked the comics and are judging it based on an off-handed remark in a two-sentence summary, you might want to take a look at yourself and then watch the damn show.

No thanks.

No thanks.

Oh well. More for me.

Then why are you here?  Piss off.  No one needs you here shiatting all over these threads for not being YOUR personal version of the story.

There is always one who takes the fanatic that fan is derived from seriously.  I knew a girl who stopped watching the Harry Potter movies at Goblet because in the movie Hermione wore a pink dress to the ball. She was goth and to her that totally destroyed the character.
