The first season of AMC’s Preacher, an adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s comic book of the same name, defied all expectations to become one of the best shows to premiere in 2016 (and this is coming from someone who has never even read the comic book)! Rising ratings and a loyal fan base were enough to lead AMC to renew Preacher for a second season. This is awesome considering that Preacher barely scratched the surface in terms of the narrative. I’m pretty stoked to see what it has in store for us for the second season. Seriously guys, WATCH THIS SHOW.
Watch Preacher Season 2 Premiere here now. Don’t miss new episodes, Mondays at 9/8c on AMC.
To celebrate the return of Preacher we’ve decided to look back at the most badass and totally awesome moments and actions committed by the series’s trio of lead characters: Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) and Tulip (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga). Together they proved to be one of the most magnetic and charismatic set of characters seen on TV in quite a while. As it turns out, each of the season’s ten episodes had at least one standout moment for one of our protagonists, so here is a collection of 10 of the most WTF moments from season one of Preacher!
***SPOILERS from Season 1 of Preacher to follow***
Episode 1: Tulip’s Ass-Kicking Introduction
You would think that the pilot episode of a TV series would give the best introduction to its lead character, but Preacher opts out of that cliché. The best moment from the pilot is actually Tulip’s introduction, which sees her fighting off a gangster in a moving car. The camerawork and choreography is insanely impressive, and it serves as one truly wonderful introduction to one of the show’s best characters.
