Preacher - The Complete First Season

Adapted from the comic book series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, the First Season of AMC's Preacher acts as a prequel of sorts to the story of small town Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) and his struggles after being granted a mysterious force known as Genesis.

Filled with killer angels, odd locals, vampires, crazy ex-girlfriends, and even crazier slaughterhouse owners, the First Season of Preacher proves to be a bizarre, but entertaining, ride. Highlights include an insane motel battle between Jesse, the angels, and a near-unstoppable seraphim, Jesse being tempted by revenge, the introduction of Jackie Earle Haley, the exploration of Jesse's childhood, and Jesse's stand-off with Odin's men.

Available on both Blu-ray and DVD, extras include deleted scenes, gag reel, and featurettes on the show's stunts, the process of adapting the comic to television, and a breakdown of the season's infamous "chainsaw fight."

[Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Blu-ray $65.99 / DVD $45.99]
