Goofs

Humperdoo is introduced as the twenty-fifth great grandson of Jesus Christ. This would mean that only twenty-seven generations were needed to reach the present day. Assuming that the historical Jesus died somewhere around 30 CE it would mean that the average age of fatherhood would need to be around seventy-five years old. However, this could be explained by the supernatural nature of the lineage or the show in general. See more »

Inside Seth Rogan -- the TV series

In 1980 a very odd and one-of-a-kind film was released from Africa (of all places) entitled The Gods Must Be Crazy. It violated almost every narrative standard for semi-serious. semi-comic, stories of the day.

The action was non-linear, captions came and went, locales jumped around, characters appeared and disappeared, some actors seemed to be camping the whole thing up and others seemed to be taking their roles much too seriously -- and generally the film was an international hit and a great time was had by all.

My first thought on watching the opener for Preacher is that Rogan must have seen The Gods Must Be Crazy too many times, but then I remembered he was born two years after it was made, so that theory went nowhere.

In any case, whatever work may have "influenced" Seth to pick this up and run with it (Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy would be my second guess) he did indeed pick it up and he did indeed run with it.

It is quirky, clever, fast-moving, confusing, and massively over-written.

In short, not for everyone. (Which may possibly explain the highly polarized reviews.)

At the end of the day, I suspect history will record that this was Rogan's way of breaking out of the "actor" role that Hollywood has pinned him to, and showing that he indeed has other talents.

I predict we will be seeing other unique projects from Rogan down the road. In this context, whether Preacher survives its first season, or not, is really entirely beside the point.
