Full disclosure warning…

I know nothing of the Preacher comics, story arcs, or characters. Thanks to some helpful direction from friends on Facebook, to origin story videos on YouTube, I now have a loose idea of what to expect. Preacher is a series from DC’s/Vertigo comics, written and created by Garth Ennis back in the mid 90s. There were several attempts made to get the comic put to film as early as 1998 with Kevin Smith attached as a producer. After almost 15 years bouncing around studios, then off to HBO, the series was finally greenlit by AMC thanks to the efforts of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who also co-wrote and directed the pilot. If you’re looking for a detailed analysis of all the similarities and differences between the comic and the series, I can’t help you. But I will say when it comes to other comic book interpretations, some of my favorite MCU films were based on comic characters I knew little to nothing about, such as Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy. Uncle Ben told Peter Parker, “with great power comes great responsibility.” I’m telling you, “with no comic knowledge comes no irrational disappointment.” So onward we go…

Seth Rogen Preacher Parody

Sure, the Preacher TV series on AMC from Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin looks pretty great and we’re all very excited to finally check it out this weekend. But Rogen is still best known for his comedy work, so he made sure to put that to use for a Preacher trailer parody starring…you guessed it, Rogen himself.

The video shows the Rogen parody and then a side-by-side with the original trailer. You can check it out below, along with another recently released video offering a peek at a quick but intense car ride involving Tulip O’Hare (played on the show by Ruth Negga).

Preacher

For those of you anxiously awaiting word on when you might see the Preacher TV series, get those calendars and a marker ready. The status of the show last we knew was that AMC had ordered a pilot episode, and the cast was put together to film that first episode in hopes of it winning a full series order from AMC. Now it appears that order has been made.

Seth Rogen, who is writing and executive producing the show with his This Is the End and The Interview co-writer and co-director Evan Goldberg, tweeted out that Preacher is coming to AMC in May of next year. He also shared the first poster for the series, which you can check out below. Unfortunately he deleted the tweet quickly and then sent out a new one simply saying “Preacher is coming to AMC!” so it’s unknown whether the May of 2016 part was incorrect or he wasn’t supposed to say anything yet. But either way, it looks like the show is real and you will get to see it.

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 12 Rabid Dog

Breaking Bad
Season 5, Episode 12 – “Rabid Dog”
Directed and written by Sam Catlin
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, and Bob Odenkirk
AMC
Air Date: September 1, 2013

Quiet hours of Breaking Bad are eventful, but not in ways that are maybe as overt as more action-packed hours of the show. Having officially reached the halfway point in these last eight episodes, the series needed to take a break and regroup as the end game is continued to be pieced together as the threads between the show’s future and present begin to weave together like latticework.

SPOILERS for Episode 5.12 of Breaking Bad.
