The PReacher show is kind of better than the comic tbh

Meh. Some of the books were semi-interesting, but it's Ennis' usual "I hate superheroes and the stranglehold they have on comics" with a heaping helping of "Hard men making hard choices." The books went on too long, guess we'll see how the show goes.

It is amazing that superhero Rich Evans managed to take some time out of his schedule to converse with the mortals about a superhero show

i recommend Preacher to everyone and I think the readdaption is great. It's like a 10 inch dick, you gotta see it to believe it.

You are so wrong Rich. Preacher goes there...I can't believe the things they actually keep from the comic. It is not a direct translation...but it 100% keeps the essence of the comic.

Can confirm. The first season is a slow build-up and a bit tame, also set before the series until the finale, but once season 2 starts they’re nearly adapting the comics 1:1. The lack of discourse around the show works completely in its favour; if they can get away with a Jesus sex scene they can get away with anything

Homelander is the best superhero (villain) since The Comedian. Antony Starr needs an Emmy. He is one of the best psychopaths on film.

How about the anti-religious speech in episode 5? And Amazon turning off comments because their blatant bigotry via heavy-handed exposition was earning them 1 star reviews? The characters might as well turn to the camera and say "We interrupt this show to bring you opinions from the writers, on how much they hate religion." Telling people how much you hate religious groups is so woke. So progressive.

Might have been nicer if they'd closer to the source material. But ok. It was a bit too current year.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I simply love what you're doing. Watching your reviews of films I've watched gives me sometimes better insight into them. Watching reviews of things I haven't watched might either make me wanna watch them or just at least be aware of what that thing is about. I've learned so much from this channel and after years of following you I still look forward to every new video!

I watch Preacher and I mostly love it. The first season is too slow but the rest is great. I recommend it all the time and no one takes me up on it.

dark noir is a clone of homelander who rescued butcher - later he will kill homelander and than butcher will kill dark noir with the drug, before dark noir will kill the president. butcher will than kill the whole boys-crew and andy will kill butcher in the end, before butcher can detonate his anti-hero-virus. read the comic

Having tried the comic run and bouncing off hard (seriously this series is downright wholesome in comparison) I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised by this show.

"The whole show goes so much darker than I expected!" Yeah don't read the comic run. It's downright gratuitous.

I don't really think it ended on a cliffhanger. They answer enough questions to be satisfying. You find out what happened to Butchers wife and it wraps up the thread with Starlight and Hugh's drama. It leaves enough to go on next season with the Deep and Supervillians. I don't really see why anyone would be disappointed with this ending. Had it ended when he pulled the C4 trigger then I'd say it was a cliffhanger.

Not to be "that guy" but isn't the point of the comicbook villains who have a powerset that mirrors the main protagonist to show what happens when those abilities are in the hands of the corrupt & the incompetant? It stuns me Reverse Flash has never vaporized anyone like A-Train did. It's usually just a lot of bloodless but still unsettling methods.

Zack Snyder obviously wanted to do Miracleman - but tried to apply that character to superman. And it was... weird.

The comics are 100 times worse as far as being vile. IMO the TV show while I enjoyed was really watered down. You guys really should look at the comic and then compare.

1:22 that title is actually a reference to the 1980 book "A Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole, who tragically committed suicide after consuming far too much superhero content.

SPOILER ALERT..........................................................................The Amazon series is a rarity in that it is an adoption that is actually superior to the source material. The comicbook version of Homelander was not a rapist but rather was framed for rape by his evil clone to drive Homelander crazy and other comicbook like silly twists like that but the Amazon version of events seems much more realistic and scary. I highly recommended and I am someone who has become jaded to movie adoptions of comics.

Wtf are you clowns on about, how the fuck was Superman an evil monster in Snyder’s films? Snyder simply asked the question, what would happen if you picked up a character like Superman out of the comics and put him in our world, the politics, the fear, reverence etc all super valid and interesting questions. Also, as for Superman not being the medium to tell that type of story, have you heard of Injustice, one of the most intriguing and successful iterations of the rogue Superman story? Christ almighty how do you have an audience?

You guys should have talked about how even the antagonists are somewhat sympathetic. I don't think there's a single character in more than one episode that you can't feel at least a LITTLE bad for.

Talk about Rem Lezar so we can get Rich to quote the line “Part of the joy that I get from this boy”, and then lick his lips, as if he could help it. Like next video unless you hackfrauds have anything better to do

A good show, but I still regret binging on it. It's like taking a shower with tar instead of water. Maybe it's not so much down-beating in smaller doses

Starlight isn't a good person. She *CHOSE* to do the dirty deed with the Deep. She's a fucking super powered super heroine, and she *DIDN'T* punch him, blind him, outsmart him, talk to him, smack him, go to authority and report him... in fact, when she finally addresses it, she blames everyone else as if she never had any other choice. It's nonsensical, her choice. But, aside from her entire arc (and its nonsense) the show is quite good. I love the bits with the Best Buy character. They could have made the entire show about just him and the Boys, and I wouldn't have much to complain about. I kinda loved this show, aside from some minor stupidity in the writing.
