Party Chat: AMC’s Preacher

Party Chat: AMC’s Preacher

AMC’s Preacher: An uneven first season, but hopefully things will improve.

What it is: AMC’s ambitious adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s comic book series Preacher.

What I’ve watched: Finished the first season last night.

Is it good? Hmm. Mixed, I’d say. Some cool stuff, some very frustrating stuff.

Quick thoughts: I’ve read some of the comics but don’t remember them that well, so I didn’t mind changes from the source material. Loved the first few episodes, loved the back half a lot less. The finale in particular was a mess — some great moments, but I was frustrated by how willing the showrunners were to essentially undo the entire season I’d just watched. I loved the recurring Breaking Bad reference, and agree with the rest of the world that Ruth Negga is amazing. I’m definitely in for season 2, though I’m still a little grumpy that all the consequential events of the first season could’ve probably fit into an episode or two.
