Adapt all the things!

I had just barely heard rumors about the Preacher TV series, and suddenly there's a trailer.

This has serious potential to be an amazing show, based on some excellent writing, and I have no interest whatsoever in watching it.

Look, they're going to tell you it's unlike anything you've ever seen before, but it's not. Urban fantasy is our new base layer, and pop theology is its biggest sub-genre. If you haven't had enough gore, bleakness, and blasphemy played as humor, by all means dig in. I wasn't kidding about the excellent writing, and Cassidy is one of the best modern vampire characters out there.

Just remember, when you realize it's The Walking Dead with angels, Kairos told you so.

It's kind of awesome that Raina from AoS is Tulip, though. Okay. So that's one kind of awesome thing.

In other "small-screen budget special effects caught up to the stuff I read as a teenager" news, American Gods is getting a series, too.

Maybe I'm a hypocrite, because a lot of the same elements I was just complaining about are there, but this one's kind of exciting. I don't know this guy, but he's a hunka hunka burning something or other, and as soon as I laid eyes on him I thought, yep, that's Shadow.
