Preacher is a special creature. AMC's deliriously addictive drama is a powerhouse comic book adaption with a style that could only have come from the likes of series creators Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin. (Rogen and Goldberg already have experience putting religious topics through their unique comedic lense, or grinding them up as the case may be, as evidenced by 2013's This Is the End, while Catlin's work as a producer of Breaking Bad explains Preacher's innate badassery.) Although Season 1 had a slightly slower pace and darker tone, the presence of its many signature “holy sh*t” moments completely justified the crawl of some of its early episodes. Season 2 kicks things up a notch, ditching the small-town problems and southern drawl for a faster tempo and a somewhat lighter mood. It kind of feels like a combination of Dogma and Snatch, mixed with a pinch of Ash vs Evil Dead. Overall, Season 2 of Preacher is existential, action-packed, funny and not to be f**ked with, and if you think that sounds awesome, you’re right.
