Next Week in TV 8/4: Preacher Returns and Bulletproof Starts

By Alyssa, Mario Wario & DRWHO42

Two series are returning this week, the first is the blog’s long time favorite, AMC’s Preacher. Before the final season premiers later today, we encourage our readers to review Mlgagne’s excellent character studies, reviews and recaps by clicking here. Also look out for our Preacher Comic-Con article, which we will be sharing soon. The other fan favorite notable series is Netflix’s Glow returning for its third season.

The 100  on The CW and Blood & Treasure on CBS will wrap up their current seasons this week.

There are exciting new shows to watch this week, a few seem to have some staying power like The CW’s Bulletproof and Netflix’s Wu Assassins and Dollar. Bulletproof  is a comedy buddy cop series, Wu Assassins a mystical Asian revenge series, and finally Dollar introduces a unique promotional idea with insider manipulation. All three promise smart action and intrigue, we think they will deliver.

The premise of The CW’s Two Sentence Horror Stories is also interesting, it will be fun to see how two sentence ideas are expanded into an hour of excitement.

BULLETPROOF is an action-packed, cop drama that unites big, emotional stories with blood-pumping stunt sequences, as it follows two undercover cops who are best friends and bonded by the same moral code, despite their very different backgrounds.

Adrenalin-fueled and packed with compelling characters, BULLETPROOF follows partners Bishop (Noel Clarke) and Pike (Ashley Walters) as they chase down hardened criminals in London’s East End. The series is both high-octane action and thrilling cases. On the surface, Bishop and Pike have a lot in common, they are cool, smart, unapologetically street-wise and tough; they share a deep, fraternal relationship and are always there for each other.  Click here for more information and click here to view the trailer.

Alyssa bought her first comic at age 7 and was hooked. She has collected comics most of her life. Recently, she has branched out to comic art and books and the occasional Lego set. She goes to as many cons as she can and enjoys the 'long form' storytelling of the television medium. She is also a foodie and is always up for trying new and different food.
