Preacher Season 1 Episode 3 recap: Grails, Fails and Bunny Tales

Hiya Preacher fans! It’s Sunday and church is in session! To begin, we meet Danny … who is not a guy. Danny would like her husband whacked, but Tulip’s not interested. However, she is interested in the paperwork being handed off. What’s Grail Industries … a holy bunch (wink)? Hmmm? We’ll have to wait and see. Danny takes the paperwork from Tulip, stuffs it away, and it’s a dead topic. In exchange for the Grail stuff, Tulip gets a slip of paper containing a “last known address.” Of who? Tulip recalls the day everything ended for Jesse and her. An […]

AMC Preacher premiere recap: Ya get what you pray for

Hallelujah and bless AMC! For Preacher is here! • RELATED: We talk AMC’s smokin’ new Preacher with executive producer Sam Catlin! If you’re anything like me, you’ve been dying to feast your eyes on this bad boy since the very first moment AMC made the world privy to its arrival. I expected good, but good just don’t do Preacher justice … It begins with a bang — literally. A “meteorite” shoots through space and beelines it to Africa where a man preaches passionately to a dedicated congregation. He shouts, “Something is coming!” He doesn’t know how right he is. That “something” smashes […]

Preacher: Man literally seeks God in AMC’s new comic-based saga

What would happen if God checked out of heaven and went on the lam? That’s exactly what transpires in AMC’s new Preacher. Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s 1990s comic series, Preacher centers on Rev. Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper, Agent Carter), a world weary, cig smoking, smokin’ hot Texas padre who, in one strange moment at the pulpit, is possessed of a godlike power as God himself goes AWOL — leaving Jesse the only one who can track the big guy down and hold him responsible for what ensues. Along for the ride: Jesse’s ballsy ex Tulip (just try to take your eyes off […]

Season 2 is upon us, Fear the Walking Dead fans, so let’s take stock. Liza’s a goner — but Travis (Cliff Curtis) and Madison (Kim Dickens) are that much wiser about walkers. An already defiant Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie) only knows that his dad shot his mom. The wounded Ofelia (Mercedes Mason) is also mourning her mother and doubting her dad. And Nick (Frank Dillane) just got elevated from epic screwup to Strand’s second in command as everyone prepares to board his yacht, the Abigail. We’ll come back to that last one in a minute. Fear’s co-executive producer Dave Alpert […]

Recap: The Walking Dead Season 6 Finale “Last Day on Earth” … FOR WHO?

Well, dear fans of TWD, there you have it … or not. Season 6 has left us hanging, and hang we will for the next seven months. I knew it was coming, though I tried to think of every reason why they would avoid a cliffhanger. I mean, seven months is a really long time to hide such a huge secret … isn’t it? Well, maybe not — the character who died doesn’t even know he or she is dead. Well played. Doesn’t mean I’m not pissed – okay, I’m not totally pissed. I can spend the next seven months hoping […]

D is for danger. The Walking Dead Season 6 episode 15 recap.

So, my fellow TWD fans … it’s coming. The end of Season 6. I’m not excited about it based on what I’ve read — which is a ton because I’m trying desperately to find some kind of consolation. But there is ZERO. And why would there be? AMC wants us to flip out until next season. Jerks. (I mean that in the most loving way. Sort of.) Tonight’s penultimate episode, “East,” starts with Carol. Tobin comes in while she’s planning her exodus, and they have sexy time. We don’t see it, which is just fine with me. Her bags are […]

Catch your breath now. Mayhem isn’t far away. Even in the lull, there is a general raised awareness. Eugene seems anxious to step up. He’s growing a pair right along with that mullet. Father Gabe is focused and armed. Morgan plays with his stick. In another moment and another place, Morgan slides the last brick of his super prison into place. This is the tireless project he began […]
