What are you watching?
Has anyone watched "Preacher", an AMC series? It has been on for two entire series years - and I have never encountered a show with less concern with the typical television experience. Basically, the characters are all beyond anything ever attempted. Jesse Custer is a southern Texas hitman turned Preacher searching for God, because He is missing. There are leads that He went to New Orleans because He likes jazz. So Jesse and his little group of friends (his girlfriend, Tulip, and a Vampire named Cassidy, who carries a parasol because he starts to smoke when in the sun light) drive all over the place chasing down weird sightings and clues, with strange angels and others hunting them. Jesse was given the gift of "The Word" which allows him to use a command voice that forces people to obey instantly. They end up in the apartment of an old French-speaking man who ends up being Cassidy's son. No one understands him and he can't understand them. Each new episode goes off into strange directions. There is a side plot about a young man names Eugene who is trapped in Hell with a face that looks like an anus. The nicest inmate there is Adolph Hitler who helps Eugene cope.


For some reason I never watched X-Files when it was on TV. Something about it turned me off--I guess I had the idea that it was all about flying saucers, which are not of any interest to me. If they exist, they are likely perpetrated by devils trying to mislead us.

Devils are, of course, true extraterrestrial aliens. But they have been living among us since the Fall of man. Angels of God also have been living among us, to keep the devils from destroying us all. But all this goes on mostly unseen.

Finally I got around to watching season one of X-Files on DVD, and to my surprise I find it is more like Fringe, and in some ways, also like Grimm. Both of which were great TV series, and I see now, obviously took a lot of pointers from the earlier TV series. That is, there are many stories about unusual things. Good science fiction/fantasy. So I have the whole series to look forward to viewing. I just ordered seasons 2 and 3 on DVD. I believe there were ten seasons all together, plus a movie.
