    I'd just about piss myself.

    I've been asking for this for years. I know there have been talks on and off for years about doing a Preacher film (presumably Gone to Texas), and I've always thought it a bad idea. This isn't Sin City. Preacher is a long story to tell, and telling the first chapter just ain't right. But it would be ideal for a tv series, and given the nature of the material, there's only one channel I can see making it.

    I figure, if they keep to the same general plot lines (obviously things need to be fiddled with for the television medium), they could put the equivilent of two comics in a single one hour episode. That would mean a single twelve episode season could likely cover 1-2 of the TPB, and the whole tale could probably be told in about 6 years. Lots of good side tales to tell too, if they felt like giving fans something to chew on between seasons...

    Oh man. I would SO watch that. Give it the same kind of atmosphere that Carnivale (easily the most underrated TV series I have seen in YEARS) had.

    Now that would be awesome. So long as it doesn't suck as bad as this season of the Sopranos.
