Preacher Season finale recap

The end is here, Preacher fans! With the Preacher season finale, “Call and Response,” season one is all but dust in the wind, and though I know the wait for Season 2 will be long and grueling, we have much for which to give thanks. Cassidy is still with us, and he’s healing up nicely. Saving Eugene from Hell is not an impossibility. Jesse seems to be getting a handle on Genesis. Tulip found Carlos, so she can stop obsessing. Emily won’t have to make out with Miles ever again. All the wild guinea pigs and hamsters have been set free to […]

Hell on Wheels Series finale recap: Done

Well, Hellions – it’s been a long and bumpy ride, but we’ve arrived at our final destination. After five seasons of great TV, we have come to the end of Hell on Wheels.  The good-bye is bittersweet, for me. I will miss my Bohannon, but I am left with hope for the characters I’ve come to love, and I’m pleased nothing is tied up in a neat little bow. Fine work, AMC. Durant and Huntington face each other on the tracks, taking jabs under their breaths as the crowd around them waits in silence. Durant provides the spike. They both […]

Preacher AMC episode 7

Preacher Episode 7 recap: All dogs go to heaven. At least they better.

Another week is upon us, Preacher fans. We kinda get one wish, and sorta another, but hell continues to break loose in Annville! It just doesn’t stop. If you’re expecting answers, forget it! You’re getting nothing! And based on the fact that there is another season coming, only a few more episodes of this one, and AMC’s track record for leaving us angst-ridden puddles, I can only offer the comfort of my shoulder. I know we’re in for a long wait until next season, and this one ain’t even over yet! It begins with a Quincannon vacation in Vail — […]

Hell on Wheels Season 5 episode 13 recap: Going for gold

Hey there, fellow Hell on Wheels fans. Welcome to the penultimate episode. Are you ready to see the Transcontinental come to fruition? It’s about to happen, and this episode begins with an absolutely beautiful narrative. Louise Ellison is typing up her account for the New York Times, and we hear her words as keys fall on paper. In conjunction, a photographer develops photos of what we’ve witnessed over the past five seasons. We are reminded of many trials and tribulations. It’s a glorious intro. Maybe it’s because I love to write. Maybe it’s because I love history. Maybe it’s because my […]

Preacher recap: With God All Things Are Possible. Genesis is Another Story …

Well, we knew last week was just the beginning of it all hitting the fan, and hitting the fan it is! So welcome back Preacher fans. This week is just chock full of disturbing. I fell in love with Jesse Custer when he was a drunken turd of a crappy preacher … he should have stayed that way. Now he’s so much worse. It can be argued it’s not his fault, but it is. He had the golden opportunity to put Genesis back in its damn can last week. He didn’t. So, with that said, I am no longer fond […]

Hell on Wheels Season 5 Episode 12 recap: “Freedom starts with a single step”

Welcome back, Hellions! We’re in the home stretch and I’m thoroughly enjoying the ride. The last half of the season has been a sensory overload – I’m expecting the Hell on Wheels series finale to be phenomenal. I know we aren’t quite there yet, but the lead up has me convinced we will enjoy an exceptional ending to the series we’ve come to love. I know we won’t get “Dextered.” To those of you who don’t know what I mean by that, just think of a show you’ve watched religiously only to see it sign off for good with a […]

Preacher episode 6 Jesse LeBlanc Fiore
Recap

Preacher Season 1 Episode 6 – “God don’t make mistakes!”

Welcome back Preacher fans! Last week, we found out Jesse’s definitely not carrying around the Holy Spirit in his belly. This week we find out just what it is … okay, well maybe not exactly, but its name is Genesis, and it ain’t good. We begin where we left off – the diner. Fiore and DeBlanc want Jesse to give “it” back, but Jesse wants to know what “it” is first. Fiore tells him to mind his own business, but DeBlanc, under Jesse’s spell, spills the story of Genesis – “the most powerful entity every known, the singular force that […]

Hell On Wheels Season 5 Episode 11 recap: No-hannon

Welcome back, Hell on Wheels fans. Mr. B is not around this week, but Durant’s scheme and its costs require an entire episode. I’m happy it’s mostly over and done, though I’m certain of residuals. It was a nightmare from its inception, and the price paid for his egotistical stupidity far surpasses the $250,000 he so arrogantly expected. As I’ve said, I don’t hate the man. I’ve felt a lot more disdain over the past few episodes, but I still don’t hate him. If anything, I pity him. He’s weak. Money and power will always make the weak strong, but […]

Preacher Season 1 Episode 5 recap: Going to church don’t make you a Christian

Dear Preacher fans: The world is sh-t and it’s all our fault. Now stop being sinners before Jesse gets involved. He’s not real good at using his powers yet, so we best take behaving upon ourselves. Preacher really gets me thinking about people and faith and my faith in people (I said I wasn’t religious, but I can still have faith, so no busting my chops). Yeah, it’s harsh and violent and maybe a little too audacious, but it’s creative and entertaining. Some say it’s just too twisted … seen the news lately? It’s a parody, people, and the world ain’t […]
