Mr Saxon thanks for the heads up

First I've heard of this.  Looks like it could be a real winner!

Tasty.
post #5 of 426

Fuck yeah, that looks awesome.  Glad to see Goggins in a more comedic role - his guest spot on Community was absolutely killer.

Was not aware of a new McBride/HBO project. This definitely has the potential to amuse.

post #7 of 426
Great trailer. I didn't know Shea Wigham is in this. It sounds like for once he isn't sweaty, intense and doomed.

The show will run for two seasons and that's all, folks.

 

Quote:
 “The whole series is only 18 episodes and that’s it,” McBride said. “We just wanted to make a really long movie. It’s one school year and a complete story.” Hill seconded the claim, saying that the “short and sweet” project wouldn’t continue even if ratings prompted HBO to ask for a third season. “We already shot the 18 episodes and that’s it.”

 

Starts July 17th!

Always ready for more McBride!

post #11 of 426
I love Goggins and may watch for him (and Wigham), but McBride is diminishing returns at this point. His shtick hasn't changed since he first became popular. I have the same complaint about someone like Rogen, at least in front of the camera.

I really like his schtick! 

post #13 of 426

I can't wait to see him as the captain of the good ship Covenant in Prometheus 2.

 

 

Ridley: "Now Danny, I know I said I hired you because I was a big fan of your usual schtick...but forget all that. You need to drop the Southern accent. You're a working class boy from Manchester. Also, I hope you don't mind 9 hours in the makeup chair every morning, because I've decided you're an old man, too."

He can do it! Danny McBride is amayonnaising!

post #15 of 426
I've been watching the Eastbound & Down marathon and one of the most impressive things about McBride's performance is how he sells Kenny's occasional flashes of lucidity and self-awareness. Kenny Powers isn't a two dimensional caricature, but a character who conceals his fear and self-loathing by allowing his worst, most self-aggrandizing impulses to take the wheel. It's pretty good.

Johnny gets it.

post #17 of 426

People who think BcBride is one note should rewatch Pineapple Express. I'm always pretty surprised by how low key and vulnerable his performance in that is compared to his usual persona.

post #18 of 426

It's a winner.

Man, they found the perfect actress to play McBride's daughter - I had to do an IMDb search to check that she wasn't related to him in real life. Also; I didn't realize Shea Whigham was in this!

 

Did a good job at setting everything up. This could easily grow into my favorite current tv comedy. 

post #21 of 426
Is this on Sky Atlantic already?
post #22 of 426
I think Kim Gregory's low-toned threat towards McBride was the funniest thing in the episode, along with the running gag of Shea Wigham's supportive overtures being repeatedly rejected. I think I need more time with Goggins character as he was maybe my least favorite part of the episode. Hopefully a look into his personal life will help him feel more substantial.

Not until the end of July.

Still laughing at McBride proclaiming "Tacks" before throwing a bunch at Goggins.

post #25 of 426

This was so damn great. McBride and Goggins play off each other so well. Great to see Bill Murray popping up on TV once in awhile, first on ANGIE TRIBECA and now here.

I really liked Goggins's pants. Persimmon, I think.

That was great. As was the fake punching. Goggins makes a fine southern dandy.
post #28 of 426
Oh, I almost forgot:

"sassy motherfucker!!"
post #29 of 426

Watched this last night and had to pause it twice so I could compose myself. First when McBride interrupts the song to yell at the two laughing kids and then when he chucked his laptop bag at Ray. "Dammit Ray, you broke my computer!"

It was so focused on laying the groundwork that it took a while for it to click with me. By the end, I was fully on board (that retirement assembly . . . oh man), but I didn't get an immediate charge like I did with EB&D. Maybe it's easier for me to believe a McBride-esque character as a washed-up minor league baseball player than someone who'd willingly choose to educate kids.

"...My bad."

 

"It is your bad."

post #32 of 426

Good heavens, Goggins' face during the prayer. Incredible.

 

The scene in the principal's house. Haven't seen destruction like that since MAN OF STEEL.

Goggins owns this show.. So goddamned sassy.. His prayer faces and the "fuck YOUR face, fuck your butt." line McBride gave murdered me.
post #34 of 426

Hard to believe Goggins could play a character more sinister than both Shane Vandrell and Boyd Crowder. Yet after that scene in his kitchen we may be at that point.

 

Also, "Please choose to be dignified."

post #35 of 426
Between this and The Night Of ( which I just watched before this) I am grateful these are HBO and not a full episode dump ala Netflix..

Woulda dragged the minifridge to the couch and not unassed myself til Tuesdee.
post #36 of 426

Last week's was good but this week's episode sold me on the show completely. This is the chaos I expect from a Hill/McBride joint. Goggins' southern pansy mannerisms are killing me.

post #37 of 426

Are Bojangles' just a southeast thing? I'd like to try one of those biscuits.

post #38 of 426

I can vouch for Bojangles biscuits. Hot damn.

He was closer to his Hateful Eight character, only more psychotic.

LOVED the second episode. I was wanting more Goggins, and by God I got it. He was incredible.

I like how dark this got, quickly. I'd bet this ends with bodies on the ground.
post #40 of 426

Oh yeah motherFUCKER,  this episode knocked it out of the park.  

post #41 of 426

“Fire her? For workin' on that body?”

post #42 of 426
I love unhinged Goggins. Although I thought he was a little easy on his mother-in-law. He should have pissed in her tea.
post #43 of 426

I watched the first 2 episodes, really funny so far.

 

The techno song that played while they smashed up the house was on the Wipeout HD Fury sountrack on PS3. I tensed up and my hand muscles involuntarily started twitching as soon as I heard it.

It excites me how little of a grip I have on this show's tone.  It feels capable of making an insane turn at a moment's notice.

I'm a massive McBride fan and only barely acquainted with Goggins but, yeah, I've got to admit that he's turning into this show's MVP. I kind of love the way he saunters into and out of every scene.

Same here.. Just started watching Justified season 3, his Boyd Crowder role is this roiling pot of intensity, with some dark humorous jabs here and there.

Lee Russell in Vice Principals though.. Damn, I expect him to be sippin' mint juleps while planning his attack on the Governor role of South Carolina here soon enough.

The true definition of Southern sass.
post #47 of 426
This has the feeling of something special. Jody Hill is really an original and exciting creative voice right now, at least for me. Observe and Report and Eastbound and Down are both such terrific, frightening comedies, and this fits right in with them so far.

Next week looks like more British Office awkward workplace stuff, but it looks like it will be in service of this borderline disturbing larger plot. Maybe I'm setting it up for myself too much, but this last episode was just so damn good.

The biggest laugh of the show so far was McBride calling him a "sassy motherfucker" in the premiere.

As much as I would like to have my imagination run wild as to Lee's history, I feel as though what the writers have already conjured by him living with his Korean wife and mother-in-law will be aces.

Just watched the first two eps last night. Laughed out loud a lot more than I thought I would.
