If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/26/18

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Phoebe’s Choice

With almost three seasons done in Preacher, we’ve seen an interesting adaptation of a road trip comic book converted to a show set alternately in a small Texas town, New Orleans, & an idyllic swamp haunt called Angelville. The last locale is where title character Jesse Custer was raised by his voodoo-wielding evil Grandma, who is one of several “bad guys” this year. And Jesse likely would have wiped her out as a threat, had Herr Star and his goons in The Grail organization not extracted Jesse’s soul a while back. Without a soul, he had been unable to use the power of Genesis inside him that makes his commands act affect others like the word of God.

God, btw, is still running around doing something depraved in a vinyl dog suit, motorcycling the country with his hot girlfriend. And Cassidy the Irish vampire has been off on his own for half the season, dealing with a cult led by another much more sadistic and powerful vampire named Eccarius. Cassidy tries to warn the cult members who are really just food being fattened for Eccarius to slaughter them, but they believe their leader instead. They beat Cassidy up and leave him crucified on an upright pool table, awaiting the sun’s beams to burn him out of existence.

The last cliff they left us hung on was the bus ride back to hell as overseen by the Angel of Death. Teamed up with the super badass Saint of Killers, a Confederate soldier turned demon cowboy, Angel of Death had acquired the three people Satan sent her to get: Eugene, Hitler, & Tulip. Just as Tulip had been about to try an escape, Hitler instead kicked his way out the window and dove directly onto a landmine in 1940’s WWII. This flipped the bus and left them all stranded in the past!! I can’t wait to see how they finish it all tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “The Light Above,” Jesse returns home for what he hopes is the last time but in doing so angers Starr and endangers Cassidy. Meanwhile, Tulip battles Hell and Nazis.

Find out who prevails in tonight’s finale on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Get Shorty and The Venture Bros.
