Howard Stark is going to be playing Jesse Custer? Sure! I don’t see why not.
It ain’t HBO. So they can’t show the insane orgy-scat-fisting scene from Preacher. But they are AMC. And they’ve ordered a pilot based off of the goddamn glorious, goddamn irreverent, goddamn profane comic series.
This is a Better Call Saul teaser. Starring the show’s creator (along with co-creator Peter Gould, who I am admittedly ignoring the fuck out of here like an asshole). Perhaps this teaser’s existence is a testament to how forcefully Vince Gilligan has penetrated our Pop Culture Psyche. I mean. How many shows feel comfortable enough plugging themselves by just sort of letting the Venerated Creator babble about its premise? In a commercial? I reckon not many. And maybe even more important, it works! I’m sold. Let’s do this, Vincent.
How long after a creator’s pinnacle moment is it fair to still get excited about them? Or is it prudent? The adolescent fanboy in me is really excited that Chris Carter is doing a show based on Area 51. But then I count the years since I’ve given a fuck about anything he’s done and realize I should probably not get too excited.
Fuck yeah! Jonathan Banks is bringing the scowl-riddled hotness of Mike Ehrmantraut to the Breaking Bad prequel thing that I think all of us Blue Meth addicts are vaguely interested in.
Seems like a lifetime ago that Frank Darabont was the happy showrunner of The Walking Dead. First his ass was fired. Now it appears said buttocks was canned in order to screw him out of royalties. Ah, show business!
This is wonderful. AMC is bringing Preacher to the small screen. Dope. Dope, dope, dope. While it isn’t my ideal channel (HBO seems the perfect venue for angels and demons fucking, fisting orgies, and such), this is a far better idea than cramming the beast into a two-hour movie.
Dear friends, mark your calendars. You’re going to want to specifically clear out any events that may have been planned for August 11, for that is when the final season of Breaking Bad begins.
