Review: Preacher Season 1 Episode 8 “El Valero”

With a surprising amount of emotional heft, from the cold, beautifully directed and incredibly effective opening sequence to Tulip’s detached yet still interesting relationship with a dog, Preacher does provide a number of superb moments of intrigue, barbarity, and character that enriches the material’s complexity, however, again the structural incoherence of the episode, tonal failures and simply silly writing decisions weakens its gut-wrenching potential. 8.6/10
