I've only read the first collected edition of the comic series since I love almost anything Garth Ennis does.

 

But the first two episodes of the show were sublime :chicken: I loved the hell out of them it's so well done

 

Dominic as Jesse is a fantastic casting, I really can't wait to see where they will go with this series. It makes me miss the hell out of the Constantine series though :sad:

I've been dreaming of seeing a good adaptation of this for quite a while, although I can't help thinking that nailing the tone is going to be a real challenge. The books were so dark, so dry, so outrageous and yet so oddly plausible at the same time. Seth Rogen's involvement makes me a bit nervous too. :/

I know your concerns Michael, it's... well

Obviously the TV series isn't gonna be as dark and everything as the comics (there's no way)

My friend said it was kinda like the Walking dead and how it has it's own kinda story and take off on the comics, but still keeping a sense of tradiitionalism to the comics. :idk: I like where TV preacher is going and I hope it stays this way but it could turn pretty easily

Yeah, I can't imagine a conceivable way that any network would allow an unadulterated version onto our screens, but if it's even a tenth as interesting and entertaining as the original work, then it'll be well worth watching. I'll certainly give it a shot if and when it reaches the UK, I'd like nothing more than to see them knock one out of the park, so to speak. :yes:

It gets better!

How they have done it has been really good, I know some people @Michael* included had concerns about Seth Rogen and his involvement but he seems to be doing a wonderful job

Sounds to me like they're doing a Walking Dead. Obviously using the source material but branching off here and there.

Cassidy in the show is wonderful, the comics he's pretty kick-ass as well but the show cranked him up so much :chicken: It's fucking amazing

No spoils, what they are doing with the history of Jesse and Tulip is fucking phenomenal :shocking: The whole backstory of everything they have been setting up this season is shockingly effective. I always loved the comic back story but the new one is just wow.

To be honest Jesse is starting to annoying me with God.

 

Cassidy do not seem to understand that his "friend" from Quebec do not like him :rofl:

What the Hell with Eugene? Not sure I like the "friendly" Hitler story. I don't want to feel sorry for that bag of shit :dry:

Trying to figure out if the other villains in Hell were famous bad people for real?

Jesse is a big double ass. Now & then. What was their story in the comics?
