Pip Torrens as Herr Starr in Preacher Season 3

Pip Torrens talks Herr Starr’s motivations, and Allfather in Preacher Season 3

Preacher returns for the third season on AMC tonight, and based on what I’ve seen so far, it’s going to be a wild ride. Preacher has always been bold, dramatic, hilarious, and wonderfully weird, and this season takes it even further for some truly awesome confrontations, and consequences. And, of course, there’s the great Pip Torrens returning as Herr Starr once again.

Female-fronted podcasts you’re not listening to… but should be

I first fell in love with podcasts in the days of Lost and Battlestar Galactica. Each of those series embraced the medium and had official podcasts hosted by their executive producers that offered more insight into the series. It was like a commentary track but even better, since you didn’t have to wait for the eventual DVD release. I started podcasting in 2008 about the show True Blood, and started a Vampire Diaries podcast the following year. It was a way for a group of fans–and some of us who straddled the line between fandom and TV blogging–to discuss each episode of the show in depth, or talk about theories and predictions.

Hail to the Chin! Bruce Campbell talks Ash, new book, and Fan Expo

Bruce Campbell is one of my favorite horror icons. He’s fun, acerbic, and honest in the most down-to-earth way possible. This week he arrives in Toronto for Fan Expo, and I had the chance to speak with him about his new book, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor, the Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead, and what it’s like meeting with fans. Campbell even had some advice for fans coming out to meet him this weekend.
