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!
One of the best comic book adaptations that TV has seen in recent years draws one step closer to completion tonight as Preacher airs its second-to-last episode ever. This is a gritty, mature audiences-only kind of show, similar to the depraved source material written by Garth Ennis and drawn by Steve Dillon. As we get close to the finale, it’s obvious it will not end exactly as the book did, but that’s okay. That’s what this show has been like all along: a great rendition that carries the spirit of the comic, even if they changed a lot of minor details (and Tulip’s ethnicity).
Last week we got a bit of background of the Grail’s Herr Star, who was a bullied beauty pageant winner as a child. This history was told in a fever dream that he woke from to find himself held by cannibals who were eating his leg. Before they ate much more of him, he was rescued by Lara Featherstone, who was once again working for the Grail. At some remote farm, Cassidy and Tulip had the true messiah, Humerdoo, held hostage. To exact her revenge on God, Tulip wanted to kill Humperdoo in front of the Almighty. After God told Star the location, the Grail easily pulled off a rescue mission.
When God & Jesse had their face-to-face finally, God told the Preacher that he failed because even though he resisted temptation, he “wanted” to give in to it. God then bit Jesse’s eyeball out, a gruesome moment that came straight out of the comic book. This infuriated Jesse, but God teleported him back to his friends, instructing him to bring them along to the coming Apocalypse. We also got a glimpse of Arseface discovering his passion for music. Perhaps we’ll see a bit of his meteoric rise to fame that he had in the book? No matter what happens, tonight’s penultimate episode should be a riot!
On tonight’s episode, “Overture,” Masada is abuzz as the Messiah has finally arrived. Our heroes mount one last assault in a desperate attempt to thwart the end of the world, but God uses every trick in His omniscient arsenal to divide them. Eugene gets out of prison.
See what happens with the group and how Eugene does out of prison tonight on AMC at 10:05/9:05c.
I’ll also be tuning in for Pennyworth, On Becoming a God in Central Florida, and Ballers.
