Perhaps the most "Me" News I've Ever Read

Hey you! Yeah, you! Remember when you read that Onion article with the headline, "Guest Lies Awake Well into Morning so as Not to Wake the Rest of the House?" Or, something like that? Remember how you were all, "That - that is so me." Well ... pump. Your. Self.

Not since HBO was all, "we in that", has "Preacher" news seemed so, like, "do that." Like, "That would be awesome. I dared not to dream. Perfect fit. Finally. Just do it." The audacity of the hope of the idea that the hole I used to put Breaking Bad into one day have the pleasure and convience of being the perfect size for a three to five season-long, AMC-helmed, "Preacher" run. The pitch is so head-slappingly perfect, I wouldn't have dared tease myself with such a possibility.

There was once a time I told myself, "You know, these prequels might not be so bad. That Darth Maul guy looks like a proper Vader replacement and I do like that trailer there." But then, wouldn't you assume ... he was dead, not at the end of three movies, but by the end of the 3rd act. And so was the last of my childhood hope. Replaced by the ceramic bliss of adult disenchantment.

Or so I thought ...

If ever there was a time to indulge in some racially insensitive knee slapping -this, THIS - is that occasion.

AMC may finally be bringing Preacher to television

AMC may finally be bringing Preacher to television

What is going to fill the television-viewing hole left by Breaking Bad? It may very well be a TV adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's foul-mouthed, blasphemous, supernatural road comic Preacher.

It's unconfirmed by the network (s0 best taken with a grain of salt), but Badass Digest is reporting that AMC has ordered a pilot based on Preacher. The comic centers on Jesse Custer, a preacher who becomes possessed by a divine entity that gives him incredible powers and inspires him to seek out God face-to-face, accompanied by his girlfriend Tulip and Cassidy, a vampire with a weakness for drugs and booze.

In many ways, Preacher is a good fit for AMC, which hasn't shied away from violent stories or particularly bloody meditations on masculinity and the meaning of life. But Preacher is a hard-R comic in ways that go beyond gore, featuring incest, disfigurement, cannibalism, and bestiality, just to name of few of its less savory elements. Will AMC be able to deliver an uncensored Preacher to TV? And will Ennis' tale of friendship, faith, and the f-word translate to moving pictures?
