Out of the Blue – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Six

In a somewhat surprising, but not unprecedented, turn, the show opts to draw from a significant turning point in its source material to deliver a dramatic cliffhanger. With yet another rescue party out to retrieve yet another of the protagonists, the audience would be forgiven for believing the series to be stuck on a loop.… Continue reading Out of the Blue – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Six

The Breaking Point – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Five

Despite a rocky start, this season is proving it knows where it's going and how to get there. With characters reuniting after episodes, or even seasons apart, the emotional catharsis in this episode is high. New characters play their roles, but don't overstay their welcome, offering thematic coherence that is desperately needed at this juncture… Continue reading The Breaking Point – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Five

Father-and-Son Happy Hell Assassin Buddies Go to the Beach – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Four

Luckily, it eventually figures out what to do with them, and manages to juggle disparate tones with a grace few series of its sort achieve. I've missed this part of the show,… Continue reading Father-and-Son Happy Hell Assassin Buddies Go to the Beach – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Four

Cowards – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Three

Not all is well with this episode, but it’s much more of what I’d expect from this series: wacky and lightly offensive nonsense filmed beautifully, juxtaposed with moments of existential dread for both the characters and the audience. The season isn’t out of the woods by any means, with the characters all in fundamentally the… Continue reading Cowards – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Three

Lessons in Adaptation: Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

See? I told you I would do more on some of those recommendations. To be completely honest, though, I wasn't entirely sure I wanted to recommend either version of Good Omens. I like them both.

About a quarter of the way into the book, I was… Continue reading Lessons in Adaptation: Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch
