As with any adaptation, AMC’s Preacher has come under close scrutiny from devoted fans of the source material. The first trailer attracted a lot of attention, both from the Preacher faithful and from curious newbies, but as usual there was plenty of grumbling that it just didn’t look close enough to the comic book that inspired it.
One person who doesn’t really seem to mind, though, is Garth Ennis. The writer behind the original comics says he’s “delighted” with the new trailer, and claims the pilot, which he’s already seen, is “excellent.” Read the Garth Ennis Preacher trailer comments after the jump. Read More »

Over the past decade, AMC has served up shows about ad men, androids, drug kingpins, computer engineeers, Revolutionary War spies, and cops of all stripes. But no subject has been more reliable for them than zombies. The Walking Dead remains a juggernaut for the network, no matter how cranky viewers get about certain unresolved cliffhangers. So much so that it’s spawned not one but two successful spinoff series, Talking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead.
In that light, it’s no wonder AMC seems as hungry for stories about the undead as the undead are for brains. According to a new report, the network’s next venture into zombie territory will be Empire of the Dead, based on a Marvel comic written by the godfather of the zombies himself, George A. Romero. More about the possible Empire of the Dead TV show after the jump. Read More »

Better Call Saul might not be Breaking Bad-level dark, but it’s still not what you’d call a lighthearted comedy. The show breaks down, step by step, how Jimmy McGill, a born con artist trying desperately to go straight, transforms into Saul Goodman, the conscience-free “criminal lawyer” we met in Breaking Bad. It’s funny, sure, but it’s often sad and occasionally downright heart-wrenching.
And it looks like that blend of comedy and tragedy will continue next year, based on the first two teasers for Better Call Saul Season 2. The atmosphere on set, however, looks less “Greek tragedy” than “workplace sitcom,” as seen in a Better Call Saul gag reel. (Nothing breaks the tension quite like a prop that won’t stay put, or in the case of a certain dollar bill, a prop that stubbornly insists on staying put when it’s not supposed to.) Watch the Better Call Saul Season 2 teaser and Season 1 gag reel after the jump. Read More »
