With both Walking Dead series on their season and mid-season breaks, #TeamZombie continues its new Zombpocalypse Now podcast by turning the baleful eyes of Mr. Harvey and Mr. Adair onto AMC’s newest supernatural thriller: Preacher.
Season 1, Episode 3 “The Possibilities”
Written by: Chris Kelley
Directed by Scott Winant
Dustin: Well, it doesn’t sound too bad.
Timothy: Considering the alternative was people only hearing my side of the conversation for the first six minutes of the show? Yes, in that case, it doesn’t sound too bad.
Dustin: That could be interesting, actually. Trying to figure out what the other side of the conversation is, based on your responses. Or considering that you’ve lost your mind and are just talking to yourself like a crazy person. Well, crazier person.
Timothy: Uh huh. Hi folks! Yes, your ears are not deceiving you. Dustin does sound like he’s talking from inside a box at the bottom of a well for almost 7 minutes of this episode of Zombpocalypse Now. We had a technical issue involving the card in the recorder deciding that it wanted to freak out and have some weird error that wiped Dustin’s side of the conversation.
Dustin: It probably considered the thought of Fear the Walking Dead is coming back in the fall, and just couldn’t go on. Turns out that your mic picked up enough of my side for you to do arcane audio magicks upon it and make my dulcet tones available for the masses.
Timothy: “Arcane audio magicks?”
Dustin: I don’t know what you do with your magic computing machine. Sorcery of some kind. Anyway! Here’s the latest Preacher review thing we do. Enjoy!
Preacher is based on the Vertigo Comics title written by Garth Ennis with art by Steve Dillon, covers by Glenn Fabry. First released in March 1996, the entire run of 75 issues tells the story of Jesse Custer, who suddenly finds himself possessing (or possessed by?) a power, and he finds himself on a journey with former girlfriend Tulip O’Hare and an Irish vampire named Cassidy.
Preacher airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on AMC.
