Review: Preacher Season 2 Episode 8 “Holes”

Although the episode packs in a substantial amount of black humour, particularly in emphasising Jesse’s boredom and inability to find God, this boredom is also rubbing off on the audience. One could argue that’s an intentional decision, but the main arc’s slow pace is not energised by any particularly compelling subplots. While Tulip’s PTSD does have come wider connection to linking the narrative to Starr, rather than being simply an internal struggle, the Hell sequences lack purpose and quickly become distracting. Furthermore, while the writers can conjure some emotion with Cassidy’s decision and his mortality, which nicely ties in thematically with Eugene’s situation, this again feels like stalling rather than necessary content. 6.7/10
