Trivia

The theme song is "Time of the Preacher" from Willie Nelson's 1975 album "Red Headed Stranger". Lyrics of the song were used in the first volume of the graphic novel. See more »

Goofs

Cassidy has tattoos. However, he heals, and since a tattoo starts out by being skin "damage", it is unlikely any tattoos applied would survive any healing session he undergoes. See more »

Quotes

Cassidy: Jesus, what kind of a preacher are you?
Jesse Custer: The lousy kind.
Cassidy: No, I'm sorry, mate. I've seen the lousy kind. As long as you're not walking around with a little kiddy's arsehole around your finger like a bloody wedding ring, I'd say you were ahead of the game, there.

I don't usually write reviews but i want to talk about the Preacher.
25 May 2016 | by golea_alinaSee all my reviews

In quite some time a TV show hasn't been able to surprise me the way Preacher did. I will be honest, I have not read the comics and i do not plan to, because the show is more than enough for me.

The Preacher is not for the weak of heart, it strikes down on what you believe it will be and constantly makes you let go of any sort of forward thinking regarding the direction it will head. You cannot possibly fathom who the characters are, you cannot predict where they will go, I found that just letting go of any critical thinking while watching, and just enjoying where the show takes you makes for a wonderful experience.

Subtle but hilarious short bits of comic relief packed on such a serious subject has just boosted this T.V. show at the top of my list. Good action and an appealing story. I recommend it wholeheartedly for anyone willing to "waste their time" with a good show.
