Preacher: Season 4 (AMC show)


The newest season of Preacher premiered on Sunday, August 4 (2019), with two one-hour episodes; the regular timeslot is currently Sundays at 10pm on AMC.

Here are previous threads on the show:

Season 1 (and three pre-premiere threads about it):

Season 2:

Season 3:

Glancing through those old threads, I see that some fans of the original graphic novels /comics became fans of the show, and some did not. Not having read the comics, I'm reacting just to AMC's rendition---which I love. Great use of music and innovative camera work, and a great cast (in my view); each episode goes by way too quickly.

This season's first three episodes have been mainly set in Masada. Jesse is already off elsewhere, though. So far we're seeing more of God than in the past; Hitler, Arseface, and the Saint of Killers also have had a good amount of airtime.

I continue to be amazed at what AMC gets away with, 'adult content'-wise.

I love this show! Funniest moment of the latest episode: Arseface putting his mouth up to the hole and the other guy telling him "Slow down there big guy!"

Yes. Sad to say. AV Club has:

... The fact that this announcement is being made now, after the season was announced but before it has premiered, implies that the fourth season is being made with a specific end point in mind. Up through this point, AMC’s show has used the original Preacher comic as a relatively loose inspiration, so the end of the show won’t necessarily mirror the end of the comic, but there will probably be some similarities. ...

YouTube has some trailers and such up for free, but appears to be charging--a LOT, $50 per month!!--to see the entire season. If you time the two-week free trial right you might be able to see all ten episodes of season 4, after they've aired on AMC, presumably.

$50 a month!!!!!!!! https://tv.youtube.com/browse/preach...WdHLhG-JZ6AeKA


This link is from a year ago, but it does show a variety of ways to stream AMC, some of which may still cost a bit less than $50 a month (!):

I for one am very disappointed in the season thus far. There have been multiple literal bags of dicks, and not one person has been told to eat them. But there's still time, I suppose.

BTW, was that hall fight scene and the pull-out to show the whole hallway a deliberate Oldboy reference?

I have to admit I haven't seen Oldboy. But I searched the name of the movie and "fight" and "scene" and, what do you know? The Preacher scene clearly WAS an homage!

If Jesse doesn't get to use The Voice to tell someone to eat them, well. . .I don't know how I could be more disappointed.

I'm not loving this season, as the gang is split up and the repartee is suffering for it. The fight scenes are top notch as well.
