    This will grab your attention on first glimps, as the series opens with a cosmic entity that crosses the galaxy, finds its way to Earth, where it inhabits a preacher in Africa who explodes soon being inhabited. It only gets weirder from that point on. A real mixed up tail with an Irish vampire who parachutes into town (without a chute), and befriends a young Texas preacher returning to a place he grew up, He tries to save the small town, only he too becomes possessed by that same cosmic entity that inhabits his body. A real twisted tail complete with iconic inhabitance of the desolate small town that engage the preacher daily. Can't wait for season 2 to start!

    I tried to watch this on AMC when it originally aired but ended up missing the third episode then hoped it would get a blu release. It did! Even watching AMCHD the picture quality was less then stellar. The Blu is WAY BETTER then broadcast... As for the show. What a crazy ride. Vampire, Vampire hunters, A preacher - a kid with a face that has to be seen to believe, cloning Angels and a space alien which blows preachers up. (My favorite is the Tom Cruise news item. This plays in the background so kind of pay attention). I will say it can be hard to follow, but it is just a fun ride of nonsense which will make you ask yourself who came up with this idea?

    Originally a comic book saga, ( which I admittedly have never read, but have been told by those that HAVE read the print version, that the this film adaptation does not necessarily follow the print version in some ways. That said, and not having been privy to the print version, I thought it was an excellently done, edgy series in the vein of series such as Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, etc. Altho, this series dels with the preacher of a small Texas town, who develops unconventional poets thru a mysterious entity.

    I had not seen much of this TV series before I purchased it. I was happy with the show overall. There are parts that it was hard to stay interested, but overall it was a good choice. The series did take on a soap opera feel, with the different love triangles that wove themselves through the show. The action did however keep things interesting enough to keep me watching. I was definitely ready for Season 2 when the final episode finished.

    I really didn't like the first episode, which really worried me, bc on paper I should love this show. Well, stick with it, and it really finds its voice. a supernatural "fargo", the collection of Coen-esque losers here make for a great season. This is one of those shows I almost don't want to see another season of, as it's so neatly self-contained, it feel like it can only go down from here...

    Having read the comic this show is based on, I knew what I was in for. That said, the action of the comic didn't really happen in this "prequel-like" first season. The show spent its time instead building up the backstory of the three EXCELLENT leads. Does a fantastic job of paving the way for the fantastic writing and acting staff to take it away for the already-announced Season 2.

    This show was a well-thought out adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's masterpiece from the 90's. While no show could capture the insanity and unpredictability of the original material, this show captures the feel brilliantly. Tulip and Cassidy are spot on perfect, Jesse is the only character that waffles from time to time. Only a Texan can play a convincing Texan on tv. ,

    I started working on season 3 in New Orleans and wanted to see what I was going to be working on. Great cast and crew. The show itself is awsome. Front what I’ve read of season 2 and from what we have shot for season 3 so far i can honestly say this is going to be a great series. Getting season two this weekend.
