I suppose AMC need something else otherwise they're just going to become 'The Walking Dead Channel', but, yeah, not sure Preacher will be it.

It will not go down well with the Fundies, I suspect.

They're already gearing up about Lucifer on Fox.

Which, I suspect will last for 4 episodes before being cancelled, because, fox.

Also because it doesn't look like it'll be very good.

Did you see the pilot that was leaked? I was actually quite impressed, I enjoyed it more than I thought it would.

There's a character in it called "Arseface"!

I remember seeing Ruth Negga as Ophelia in Hamlet at the National Theatre.

Yes, it's pretty much what the character looks like due to excess stupidity and a shotgun.

Any Preacher adaptation that doesn't cast JK Simmons as Herr Starr is always going to be inferior to what it might have been.

No argument here, he looks perfect for the role.

Even AMC is going to have to tone it down compared to the comics. I vote "awful."

I saw a still somewhere of Gilgun as Cassidy and other than not being a redhead he quite looked the part. I like him and Ruth Negga -- I really do wonder how they'll do some of the scenes for TV, also I think I read that they were adding some characters which is probably bad...

More characters? Why???

The general level of swearing, extreme violence, sacrilege, sex, etc. are going to be a BIG problem, I'll be interested to see how they handle it.
