It has been hinted at.

Spoiler:
We got a scene with him staring at a treasure chest or coffin in a fish tank.

I hadn't been sold on the guy playing Starr in his brief appearances.

After this latest episode, I am very sold.

Agree, what a great look at Starr. The training was excellent, including his "self-consumation" and approach to shooting at targets.

Re: Preacher (AMC) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 6/25/17

Seeing Herr Stars training was fantastic. That being said, i am torturing myself watching this show and hoping it gets better. Its really fucking bad. Negga in my eyes will never have a good scene. Her acting is just abysmal, but even Cooper is not doing a particularly great job. The only decent reason to watch is Gilgun as Cassidy, but even that character only has moments to shine. The whole side story with Assface in Hell is booooooorrrrrrrriiiiiinnnnngggggg. And i hate that makeup job they did on him.

I predict this show won't continue on for much longer. Probably get a third season, but doubt it will make it much beyond that.

The show is becoming tedious again.

That last episode sure was. The whole thing with Jessie trying to get something from the DVD was lame. Same with whatever Tulip is supposedly going through. But it's Tulip, so who cares. Only enjoyable part was Cassidy struggling over turning his kid or not, but even that could have been done far better.

Re: Preacher (AMC) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 6/25/17

Words cannot express how few craps I give about Tulip and her one-note acting smirk. And she has taken Jesse down with her. Even Cassidy has become a bore. If it wasn't for the white suits (and mainly Herr Starr) the show would have nothing going for it. It's really getting tough to remember why I'm watching this. One more episode of them moping around that stupid dirge of an apartment and I think I'm done. All style and zero substance.

Re: Preacher (AMC) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 6/25/17

The start of this season, as they were escaping from the Saint (up to and including the small soul subplot and the saint being submerged) was good (except for Tulip's husband side-plot. I cannot say enough how few shits i give about tulip).

Anything with Herr Starr has been pretty golden.

Hell subplot - bleh.

Cassidy/Denis - interesting "decision" subplot, but been going on way too long. Maybe now we'll get some traction.

Jesse's quest for God (once they got the DVD) - meh. They seriously spent like an entire episode at a Best Buy equivalent? jesus.

Tulip - NO ONE GIVES A SHIT

Re: Preacher (AMC) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 6/25/17

I'm kind of surprised at the dislike of S02 in this thread.
I think it has been a really good time so far, and a shit-ton of fun.

Just curious why people are sticking with it (9 eps into a 13 ep season) if they dislike it so much?

For me, the episodes including the Saint were really good. The 3 were on the move, the show was going somewhere. Much improved over Season 1.

But since the Saint has been gone, the last few episodes have dragged, aside from the Herr Starr stuff.

The comic book series was, in my opinion, the single greatest of all time. I keep watching this mess of a show because i continually have the hope that some of the comic book greatness gets put on screen. Even if they managed to capture 30% of the greatness of the comic into the TV show it would be better than 9% of the shit on TV. There have been a few small aspects of the show which do feel or look like the comic, however these are few and far between. As a result we have a show that concerns itself with bullshit stories that have been specifically created for the TV show and go nowhere fast. I mean the whole Assface in Hell was an interesting concept, but its totally failed in execution. Its gone nowhere. Anything relating to Tulip is horrible. Just a waste of screen time.

I am gonna see this out to the end of the season, but unless a miracle occurs in these final episodes, i am done. I don't care to see the Comics shit on any more but this waste of time.

Re: Preacher (AMC) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 6/25/17

This has strayed so far from the source material that they might as well have changed the names and called it something else. Jesse and Tulip have been turned into such unlikeable assholes that you have nobody to root for. The plot is a muddled mess. Arseface in hell (a totally new addition, not from the comics) fell flat on its face/ass. Cassidy have a son is also a new addition that just seems to distract from the plot. The only stuff that works is the Saint and Starr, and that's because they're consistent with the source material. Everything else is just a colossal misfire on every level.

Not a lot going on in TV summer and still holding out hope. There is always a scene or two in most episodes that is really good. But yeah, the majority of it has been a huge disappointment. How many more episodes do we need to see them milling about in the same crappy apartment doing mostly nothing? The Denis thing, Assface in hell, Jesse barely looking for God, and especially Tulip: none of these things are interesting in the least and consume the vast majority of each recent episode.
