TV Show: The Righteous Gemstones

Postby mrcancelled on Sat Sep 14, 2019 9:55 pm

New Danny McBride / David Gordon Green / Jody Hill (the Eastbound and Down folks) HBO production about a rich American televangelist dynasty (y'know, like the Falwells).

I'm enjoying it so far. Not quite as much as I did the early EB&D seasons but that's a very high bar to reach. John Goodman and of course McBride are both fantastic, good casting overall.

Not crap so far. It's crazy how much more expensive this show looks compared to Eastbound.

Edi Patterson was so great in Vice Principals.
She's tearing it up here as well. I didn't realize she was a Groundling .
That explains a lot of what appears to be improvisation in a big chunk of her scenes.

Yeah this show is great.

My favorite so far: the lyrics to that "Misbehavin'" song. "Running round the house with a pickle in my mouth!" "I wash my hands to keep the devil away!"

It's funny because the stuff that these guys do always needs to sit with me for a bit. Sometimes the episodes don't immediately strike me as being all that funny, or even slightly derivative of other things they've done, but with Edi Patterson coming on to Vice Principals, I felt like it added a much-needed shift to the dynamic- she is so brilliant.

There were times in this recent episode where I wondered if they did the whole CGI de-aging thing to John Goodman. Anyone else get that?

I love that Baby Billy Freeman is always referred to as Baby Billy. It kills me.

I love the baby billy thing also.

Nothing on the TV side from the Jody Hill/Danny McBride/David Gordon Green nexus will match that first season of Eastbound & Down for me. And really, they should have let that end on the 3rd season as they'd talked about a bunch before they did the 4th.

New show is good, but doesn't hit me as hard as that first season of E&D and doesn't make me laugh and cringe as much as Vice Principals. Definitely curious to see where it ends, and McBride has talked that this is the first show they've done that doesn't have a planned ending.

RANK of JH/DM/DGG shows!

1. Eastbound & Down season 1
2. Vice Principals
3. E&D Seasons 2 & 3
4. The Righteous Gemstones
5. E&D Season 4

If it wasn't for John Goodman it would be pretty unwatchable. Totally over the top obnoxious/dumb characters doing wacky things peppered with scenes of "wait, I'm really not that bad. There's a soft inside". A satire with zero teeth or insights.

Third show of McBride's I've seen and nothing has changed. Tapped out on VP after 5 episodes. Tapping out on this after 4.

Haven't seen this many dicks and balls outside of my gym locker room.
