I've been waiting for a Preacher TV series for ages. When HBO was tossing a potential pilot around (it was close to the time when they greenlit Game of Thrones) I was truly excited. Sadly that didn't come to pass.

As my avatar should prove, I'm a big fan of Preacher. It needs to be done right though. If they hold back on the violence and blasphemy, it really won't be the same. This series needs to be controversial due to its very nature.

I think the consensus is going to be the same for anyone who knows the series, that it has to be appropriately violent and blasphemous and done right.  Clearly creative people who want to make this must know that.  Hopefully the suits who greenlight this will know that.  AMC is not known for giving the creatives control over content, however, so that makes me nervous.  Really, this should be an all-or-nothing proposition for anyone wanting to get it made.

The good thing is that unless they change the core story of the series, they'll have to deal with at least some degree of blasphemy. I mean, it's a series about a demon/angel-possessed preacher hunting down God to make him answer for the wrongs he has done against humanity. If any of that is dropped, it's no longer Preacher.
