>AMC’s Preacher pilot is an ultra violent, shockingly witty, heightened reality tale of supernatural mayhem in a West Texas town — and it’s very different from the infamous gleefully blasphemous trope-busting comic that it’s based on.

>“I don’t know that you could translate it directly [from the comic],” said executive producer Seth Rogen (yup, that Seth Rogen). “Everybody involved felt we should not — including [comic creator Garth Ennis].”

>“We’re fans of the comic,” Rogen continued. “We love the comic. We’re going to make a show we like, so we hope that that translates to people that love the comic as well. But our first and foremost goal is to make a great, entertaining, fun television show that if you never heard of the comic book, you love. We want the show to be fun for regular people without sick sensibilities.”

I wish Seth Rogen would fade into obscurity faster. The only thing of value he's done is this:

That's funny Seth, considering that the HBO show they were going to do was basically shot for shot the comic in live action.

Oh well, I'll watch it anyway.

People are saying the tone's the same so I have hope. Better to be an iZombie than a Watchmen

I personally disagree that Preacher couldn't be directly translated, but whatever. It's conjecture until the finished product is in front of me, but as a very large fan of the original work I'm concerned.

That's a shame because from the quote it sounds like AMC's version will have nothing to do with the story.

Christianity is the most insane and unrealistic religion. Yeah a vengeful petty god that attacks and punishes people and watched your every move. Oh wait that's petty let's make him not interfere at all now.

Maybe he should have gone to a better church, then. My sunday school was awesome.

We spent every sunday being taught about everyone else's religions and beliefs instead of the ones being sermonized upstairs. Until we ran out of religions, and then we moved onto sex ed.

Mohammed had sex with a nine year old girl. He would rub his dick on her thighs when she was six. He was a sick fuck.
>>
>>78815467
I'm not arguing he wasn't, but Jesus did some sick shit in his youth too. The damn Vatican won't even release the whole Bible that's why there is that massive time skip. They say what he didn't in his youth "isn't relevant."
>>

You're making a lot of assumptions based on little.

If there was a slightest suggestion Jesus was at all a sexual deviant people would be all over it.

Whereas Mohammed having a sex with a nine year old is fact.

>>78815658

The books that were removed are usually due to the dubious nature of their authenticity.

Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all were written within the lifetime that their authors could have lived. The rest? A good deal beyond that point.
>>
>>78815658
No, the Protestants removed a bunch of books from the Bible because they didn't fit their worldview, and that was long before your supposed date. If that were the case, then those books would be in the Protestant and Orthodox Bibles
>>
I don't really mind if they change the plot, the characterization was always the strongest element.

>>78815353
You two are talking about the same people. Those WERE Lot's daughters.
>>
>>78816467

that's fucking bullshit.

The data puts Matthew, Mark and Luke in the next order

Mark as the proto book, circa 60

Matthew as the one that added oral traditions to the books, circa 80

Luke added even more oral traditions and gets put at 90-100

John is put at 100-120

That fucking means that the only book that could have been written by the dude the book is named for is Mark. Every historian worth his fucking salt knows that the New Testament books were picked up and corrected/changed as it fit the Catholic Church views at least until Lutheran's bullshit

He's used as an example of being the only righteous man in the Sodom. Under the circumstances, offering up his daughters was not the morally correct thing to do, nor is it presented as such, but he was under significant duress.

So no, Christianity does not approve of gangrape to way Islam approves of paedophilia and honour-killing, or the way the Talmud approves of kiddy-diddling.

>>78820868
>Under the circumstances, offering up his daughters was not the morally correct thing to do, nor is it presented as such
For its intended audience, yes, it was. The fact that Lot would give up things (because that what daughters are) so important to him in order to preserve sacred hospitality would be evidence of what a moral man he was.

Being a "righteous" man isn't the same as being a moral man. A "righteous" man is a guy that honors god. Thats the only qualification really.

Hospitality was everything in anciet Semitic culture, especially when your guests are literal angels. It was a no win situation. Righteous does not mean totally without flaws.

Here's the thing I'm worried about.

Isn't Seth Rogan like incredibly atheist? Like that fatass with the podcast that talks with Karl Pilkington atheist?

I know for a fact that they're going to make him an asshole but they're going to make him an asshole because he's a snarky drunk who keeps sermoning others on why violence is wrong.

They're not going to make him an asshole because he's a hypocritical little shit who keeps bringing up his father's moral codes while following those of the guy who murdered him and enforcing that twisted idea on everyone. >>78819036
Ennis is really fucking mercenary.

If it isn't for money it's so they'll let him do war stories.

>We like the basic premise, but fuck the entire story.

Lucifer and Preacher, WB/DC needs to stop licensing their properties so carelessly.

Pleb or not, that's pretty accurate.

Yeah, I think Ellis has the same view about Red, too (he's fine with them altering it because it got him money to buy his daughter a horse).

>All Abrahamic religions are ridiculous.

I grew up secular and yeah they're all retarded. Lots of older religions like Hellenistic religions or many Eastern religions are more interesting and make a lot more sense. Abrahamic religions are almost uniquely moronic, at least among the big ones. I mean polytheism explains things about the world better than monotheism, mind you I don't think there's anything to either.

I disagree but it's not a bad choice. I just prefer Punisher MAX and Hitman. I think those two represent Ennis at the best of his ability, stuff like Preacher/the Boys, while good, are a tad too needlessly edgy for my tastes.

I like the boys because everything "edgy" actuallycame to play in the story from the stuff that The Seven make Annie do to the guy jizzing under Hugie's door.
