    AMC has a solid track record when it comes to comic book adaptations for TV, so I'm gonna go with them staying true to that.

    I am not sure how they can stay true to the source material when they are going to have to censor a large portion of it...

    Premium cable doesn't. Basic cable does.

    it will end up extremely neutered, will be a sad shell of the book.

    i think FX pushes the limit a little more for basic cable, but still don't think they would allow half of it.

    I don't think a channel like AMC legally has to abide by FCC regulations but they do run the risk of having advertisers withdrawing support. This show is ultra violent and raunchy like someone said and belongs on HBO or Cinemax.

    Yeah, I don't understand how this can happen. The violence isn't even the part that is going to be most censored. How can you tell a story that you can't actually tell without losing all of your sponsors?

    My thoughts exactly. It was always going to be a "I'll believe it when I see it" even when HBO was is talks over it, but AMC? Just don't see it.

    Also don't see it. With that said, I think they could pull a decent mini-series or couple seasons out of entire thing, and leave behind some of the wilder stuff.

    The entire premise is really wild. I mean...

    Spoiler: 
    ... they kill god. That is like the big climax, that god is kind of a dick and they kill him, and we go on without god. No way that gets done with justice in any movie/tv incarnation certainly, but putting it on basic cable is just acknowledging that they have no intention of actually following the story.


    I'm not really taking this seriously. When it was HBO I could believe it, AMC though? No fucking way. They optioned this shit based on a cool sounding premise or something, once the network brass gets wind of what is involved here it will be out to pasture again.

    I could see them covering the spoilered stuff. It'd be controversial, but edgy. It's been a while since I've read it, but I was thinking more along the lines of the (KKK?) runt guy that makes meat figures, and some of Star's sex stuff. The first trade paper back, the one where he goes home and fights his brothers, that stuff would work.

    I need to reread it.

    AMC could do a bunch of off screen stuff I guess, they have a lot of really fucked up drama to work with between his girlfriend and brothers/supernatural friend. Would love to see the gunslinger in live action too.

    People saying some silly shit. AMC doesn't have to censor anything vis-a-vis the FCC. They do it to maintain a certain audience and advertisement presence. The FCC only regulates obscenity on broadcast television, which are always included in basic cable packages. AMC isn't broadcast and is left to its own devices, but until they got into this original programming phase they were very morally conservative and that has lingered.

    The FCC is getting a lot of pressure from broadcast TV networks to loosen standards as they lose market share to cable channels, so I expect as the standards are lowered for broadcast TV the accepted behavior on cable channels will shift as well. They have to stay edgier to preserve the advantage the broadcast networks are afraid of don't they?

    I'm pretty sure the FCC do mandate the inclusion of closed captioning regardless of broadcast or not, but AMC has been censoring its closed captioning so that the text don't match the audio, and this has irked deaf people that want the authentic dialogue. That is the conservatism I was talking about before.

    I'm uncertain what influence cable providers have over the channels on their networks. Comcast, for example, might have contractual oversight, but that seems unlikely to me.

    Hey, don't say that, the first 1-5 episodes will probably be amazing before Jesse spends a season searching for Tulip's daughter that they added in to make the show appeal to women.

    Yep, there was the story about Breaking Bad having a quota on how many times they can say "fuck" in a season. They'd have big debates about when to use it for maximum effect.



    It was actually used a lot more than I ever noticed. I remember people saying it was 1 per season, which is obviously not true=P Or actually I think it was 1 per season when it aired on AMC, and on DVD/Netflix you see what's in this clip.

    I understand what they're getting at but it seems like The Preacher isn't even great source to make a TV show. Things I'll be shocked if they actually do/do right:

    Spoiler: 

    * God is a "me first" prick who is also kind of a pussy. Completely gets off on people worshipping him.
    * The head kid of the Grail is inbred so many times he's retarded as fuck
    * Drug/sex use of the vampire dude (forget his name!)
    * Leader of the Grail getting butt fucked by accident
    * Didn't they have some pedophile support group meeting at a hotel?


    Even though I didn't enjoy the comic as much as Preacher I feel like Y The Last Man would make a better TV source. They could use the overall concept and not exactly stick to the comics. Preacher wasn't so much about the environment/circumstances and more about the characters themselves. Yorick was more of an any-man and could write in any number of females to flesh out the environment.

    If we actually get a Preacher series before a Dark Tower series/movies, I am going to rustle my jimmies right the fuck off. DT could be done so much more easier than Preacher, as most have explained why.

    This. They've been trying to do a movie for a long time but it would be much better adapted into a TV series. There's a lot of character development required for Yorick, Hero and even the fucking monkey.

    I could see them focusing on the Farm stuff way more than everything else. Like show him in Texas being a drunk, getting the power, doing some silly shit by accident, and then thinking he's the Man. Then, he gets kidnapped by people he can't use the Word on and spending 1-2 seasons with that stuff happening. All the while using backstory to tell you -why- his Word won't work on the family. Especially using that time he spends in the casket. Ending with him stepping up to the plate and ending the family with "God" on the horizon.

    Workable if you don't include all the batshit-insane-yet-awesome stuff that happens because of Cassidy and the Grail stuff. It is doable, especially since if I remember right the billy-badass character (T.C.) always knocked the fuck out of him for swearing. Would allow lots of halfways cut off "Fuck you!"s et al.

    Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg Officially Adapting Preacher for AMC

    AMC announced today that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg officially will be writing and executive producing Preacher, an adaptation of the celebrated Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon graphic novel series. The deal was rumored last fall, but finally came through today.

    Evan Goldberg Talks PREACHER, THE INTERVIEW, and CONSOLE WARS; Explains Why PREACHER Works Better as a TV Series
    “We just had a meeting with AMC and Garth Ennis, who’s the writer, and we all kind of seemed to agree that we’re gonna stay as true to the comic as we can. We need to change some stuff but we’re not gonna change much, I hope. We’re just gonna do a little more of the preamble instead of doing flashbacks and restructure how we dole out the information a little, but we’re gonna [do the] same characters, same story, same ending. We’re gonna try to stick to Preacher as best we can. We’re making it with Sam Catlin who did Breaking Bad, and so he might tell me I’m wrong about all of this and that the real way to do it is different because he’s much smarter and better at all this than I am. But we’re gonna try to stick to what it is as best we can.”
    “We’re beyond excited, we’ve tried to make it for 10 years. The big difference is everyone else tried to make it a movie and it shouldn’t be a movie. It should be an AMC show, that’s the proper way for it to get done… It’s too big; you can’t do that in a movie. It’s just too big. You’ve gotta learn the characters, it’s all about a love triangle and you need to grow with them and see the woman swayed one way or the other, and in a movie you just can’t accomplish all that.”

    Seth and Jonah aren't exactly a couple guys who would let themselves be censored or held back to take one for the team. If anyone could push the boundaries of television outside of HBO/Showtime it would be those two.

    When I see it on the tv I will believe it. Maybe I am just not looking at it right but I don't really think of AMC as a network that pushes the envelope as far as content goes. So when I hear "we want to keep the same story, same ending" I just really have a hard time believing that. I would be surprised to see this story faithfully recreated on HBO, such less AMC. I always figured the only reason it didn't cause a huge uproar at the time was it flew under the radar as a comic, and a indie/imprint comic at that.

    The series will be gutted. Notice how many times he says "..as best we can"? He already knows how much will be have to be changed to make a fit for network TV.

    Then why would they bother? It's not like they need the money, fame, recognition, or work. Rogan and Goldberg are about as bankable as it gets in Hollywood if you are making a racy comedy.

    Review of the pilot's script with a lot of details:

    I’ve Just Read The Pilot Script To Preacher From AMC . And I Love It.

    But Preacher is the one I am actually ecstatic about. The references are bang up to date and relevant, though not just in an “add an iPad” fashion (though they do do that). In this case it’s gay marriage, offensive sporting mascots and sado masochism amongst consenting adults. In the way that the TV version of Constantine just ripped the politics out of the original comics, Preacher keeps them in.

    It is astonishingly good, more so for being so different from the comic. But not in the way that it feels. It feels like Preacher and dammit, that’s all I actually want.

    I don't know.... When I think about it the take on God in Preacher with him essentially being an "absentee landlord" who walked when shit got too real for him looks eerily like where I bet they're going to head with the next season of Supernatural (They've done the devil, demon, purgatory, angels, the one thing left is "Where the fuck is God?")

    I'm just wary of how they will handle Preachers X rated content on AMC.

    Would be better on Showtime etc

    It will be interesting to see how much freedom AMC will give the show. I have little faith.

    I also wonder if they'll do the justice of making God this ego stroking pussy like he is the comics or try and go a more PC route

    Yeah, no way in hell they'll be doing that lol. I think they'll keep God how he is in say, Supernatural. He's there, but interaction is minimal and always behind the scenes anyway. I don't think it will cheapen the series to have God as a non-character. Using some random angel as the ego stroking pussy will be equally as effective.

    That Saint of Killers though!

    I don't think it would be equally effective at all. The whole point of the thing is god doing everything, from the fall on down, just to get some worship dickin in. Having it be an angel mutes the whole story.

    But that is the least of what I am worried about them changing. Not worried even, not really. I am 100% sure they will change like 50-75% of the story and it will be unrecognizable. I just reread the series a few weeks ago. It is so, so brutal even when you take the "Imma kill god yo" angle out of it.

    I suppose The Walking Dead has quite a few elements changed but it keeps the spirit of the comics pretty well and has a pretty decent amount of graphic violence. The only thing I can remember from the comics that they dodged was Lori's death scene which I was 100% sure they would pussy out of anyway.

    Plus the success they've had with a more adult comic book adaptation should mean they'll be a lot more willing to take chances.

    will be interesting to see. even with walking dead's popularity, still doesn't see to attract many of the big sponsors.
    which could be a good thing for the show.

    would be wonderful to see both fox new and msnbc doing weekly spots on how the show is offensive

    The Lori death and the Carl almost-rape were the two scenes I thought they'd duck. They only ducked the previous and I was shocked they had the latter. I suppose I was also a bit surprised they actually killed off the psychotic sisters.

    heh yeah, that is one thing. If they stay true to the book, EVERYONE will be offended. That alone would make it great.

    I have pretty much no faith in the Fox version of "Lucifer" being anything like the comic it's based on.

    That's been the rumor for a while now. I liked him on Agent Carter, but I'm not familiar enough with Preacher to say whether it's a good pick. Sort of interesting that they poached two actors from Marvel shows though (him and Ruth Negga from Agents of SHIELD). It makes me wonder how this impacts the possibility of Agent Carter being renewed considering he was a pretty big factor in the first season.

    I can get behind that casting. Series still likely to suck though.

    I dunno about that chick cast for Tulip. She was pretty good in Misfits, but Tulip seems a bit out of her range.

    I'd have to see who they cast for Herr Starr and the Saint of Killers, though. Herr Starr's actually gonna carry a giant chunk of the show.

    Not a great irish accent by Gilgun, but he's just so damn smarmily charismatic that I don't care.

    You should go find the graphic novel series and give it a read... I remember when someone told me about the premise and I didn't buy in at all until I read a few issues.

    p.s. The trailer seems to be working fine now, at least it did for me.

    Man, I still have no idea how they are even going to pretend to be faithful to the books. I mean, I realize, when you shift between mediums some stuff just has to change, but damn.

    Trailer looks good but still no word who's playing Herr Starr. He was in the first book right?

    I could be wrong but I think Starr didn't come along until after everything with the family had played out.

    Man, it must have been a long time ago when I read this shit, because there was a lot I was having trouble remembering from that trailer. HBO passing on this still hurts my butt.

    Starr was there early on, trying to bring Jesse into the organization. It was after he got powers, but before the swamp folks took him and Petal for some reedumacation. It was the party where de Sade was brought down that Starr took Cassidy.

    Yeah I remember they introduced Starr along with the Grail. He was still in the GSG9 or something.

    Then again they can squeeze a whole season out of Jesse's fucked up Louisiana family and his awesome cake-raping cousin.

    been reading a lot of comments about stuff apparently seth has said, but have mixes results in finding them.
    few of the things he has said a bunch is about they are not going to stick with the book completely and want to explore the world more
    they are also combining characters, one of casting has Jesse's mother Christina and Odin Quincannon merged into Vyla Quinncannon.
    comments say Herr Starr is also going to be merged with someone else, but don't see any thing official about that.
    reportedly Seth has said the ending will be different
    anyway looked up first appearances
    The Family #8
    Starr and the Grail #13
    Allfather and The Messiah #21
    Quincannon #48

    They should change things, of course, with any adaptation. I don't want to be some turbonerd sitting here critiquing every single decision they make, they have a show to create and a story to tell and budget/media constraints in which to do it. I just don't see any possibility in which the content isn't drastically censored.

    This was shown at SXSW and was well received from what I can tell. People had especially good things to say about Cassidy (the lanky irish guy from Misfits)

    Yeah that was terrible. Still hoping that this is pretty awesome, since Preacher is one of my favorite runs. But those two tools shouldn't be reviewing anything professionally hah.

    Yeah, the cinematography was great. I read a review that said it was like someone mistakenly gave Wes Anderson a Quentin Tarantino script and he shot it anyways. It seems like it's going to take a lot of liberties with the source material (way more than GoT for instance), but it has the tone and themes down pat. Cassidy is great.

    Cassidy is spot-on. I was surprised they took their time with this first episode / pilot to really ease into the characters.
