There's a little story on the HoW S4 renewal in the Herald today:
[TV] AMC Orders "Preacher" Pilot. I Cringe In Fear. -
OH DEAR. While I think the comic is finally in the right medium(a long form television show) it's in the hands of perhaps the worst bunch of executives in the new day of cable as a power. The source material is VERY dark and to make it even worse there is an almost disrespectful tone to it which makes it so much worse. No apologies for the ****ty things that happen, Ennis almost wrote with his middle fingers extended. It CANNOT be toned down without castrating the entire point of the thing. It's the story of a man who is, to say the least, VERY angry with God and is on a quest to find him and hold him to task for what he has done. Along the way there is arseface, a guy who eventually looks like a penis after numerous unintended body mods, and just a hell of a lot of blasphemy and naughty bits. Gonna be almost impossible to pull off. As long as they don't change Cassidy(an Irish punk rock vampire) into Keanu Reeves Constanine it could have a chance. Casting is key. Morbidly curious about where they go with this.
Is Preacher coming to AMC from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg?
Well this just got even more interesting. Best thing about Rogen possibly being attached is that it puts a name behind it. Makes it more likely that AMC might let more of the ****ed upedness of the source material in.
TWD was good last night. All Governor, all the time. Watched Talking Dead and was sad to hear that Chris Hardwick's dad passed away suddenly though. :(
Enjoyed TWD last night - they almost had me feeling something other then disgust for the Gov .... almost! Still enjoyed the show and liked the twist at the end. See where it goes.
