“God wants our help? We’ll help him. If he doesn’t, we’re gonna kick his ass.” I find this proclamation interesting because of the idea that they might actually try to help God. What kind of God is going to exist on the TV show version of Preacher? I always figured the TV conception would be different bc the comic version is pretty much just…boring, megalomaniacal scheming old man on a cloud stuff. you know the edgelord middle school conception of why All Christianity is Bad and I Hate It. I’m thinking we’ll get a more nuanced interpretation on the show and I’m very excited to see what it’s like.
Sam, the minute I read your vizier post, Discworld popped into my head: "It’s a fact as immutable as the Third Law of Sod that there is no such thing as a good Grand Vizier. A predilection to cackle and plot is apparently part of the job spec;" "Once you were in the hands of a Grand Vizier, you were dead. Grand Viziers were always scheming megalomaniacs. It was probably in the job description: 'Are you a devious, plotting, unreliable madman?Ah, good, then you can be my most trusted adviser.'"
