With them driving the "Student Driver" car to Dr. Brown's house, I have a feeling that someone witnessed something that will come back to bite them in the ass.

Also the cafeteria guy seeing them come out of the woods will undoubtedly turn to in-school rumors about them having some sort of love affair going on.

I love how well-meaning Ray is, and yet he gets shot down by Gamby every time (but doesn't complain because he's a nice guy!)

"Listen Gamby, I don't like it any better than you but if we DON'T pretend we're a secret couple than they'll catch on to what we did! Now HOLD MY GODDAMN HAND!"

Barely acquainted with Goggins?? Oh man you have to watch THE SHIELD. One of my top 5 shows ever. Surely you watched JUSTIFIED.

THE SHIELD is a must for anyone who loves Breaking Bad.

post #56 of 442

THE SHIELD is mandatory viewing. Amazing show.

I knew it would go dark, but that was way faster than I had anticipated.

Couldn't get into either of those shows, sadly. I don't think I made it beyond the pilot episodes.

I don't doubt they're both great shows. They just weren't for me. 

 

I pray to the God of TV for forgiveness every night.

Fine! You are spared.

On the plus side, it means that Goggins is a fresh discovery for me! Actually, that's a lie as I saw him in The Hateful Eight. Thought he was really good there. 

post #63 of 442

That's awesome really. Goggins has been a great actor for years so it's high time he gets more recognition,

I work with lots of ladies like Dr. Brown.  They'll just say, "Hey, I put a biscuit from Bojangles on your desk" or sometimes they'll just hand it to me.  Sometimes it's McDonalds.  Kind of a work perk.  The chicken is better than KFC too.  Bojangles are everywhere they filmed Eastbound and Down.  They're filming this in North Charleston SC instead of Wilm, which is bonkers ... I guess they liked hanging in Myrtle Beach during the third season.

post #65 of 442

^ Yeah, my high-school building principal is just like Dr. Brown, always being thoughtful and bringing in goodies for us teachers throughout the school year. Only with, like, 100 percent fewer mass-execution tendencies against the lower administration and front office staff. She's cool like that.

post #66 of 442
They're doing some interesting things with Dr. Brown. She's not particularly sympathetic, but is obviously not deserving of these guys.
post #67 of 442

Yeah, I'm thinking there's probably more to Dr. Brown's termination-housecleanings than meets the eye, here. At the very least, the twist at the very end with Mr. SAY-SOHHHN was pretty interesting, and proves she's willing to give even an asshole like Gamby a second chance.

post #68 of 442

Oh man, the firing of the front desk lady was so brutal and hilarious.

 

Really digging this show so far. McBride and Goggins work SO well together. 

post #69 of 442
I like that McBride is bringing new shades to his belligerent asshole routine. So much sweeter and more insecure than Kenny Powers.
post #70 of 442
Neil Gamby is much more in the David Brent mode than Kenny Powers, for sure. I don't know if sweeter is the word I'd use. Pathetic, maybe? It's a tough sell that he ever had the self confidence to draw a Busy Phillips, at any rate.
post #71 of 442
Maybe sweet isn't the right word but the way he deals with the firing shows that he's a much more empathetic character than McBride usually plays.
post #72 of 442
It comes across as hesitantly rebellious to me.

Russell has to goad him into breaking shit at Dr. Browns.

But once the bad kid shows him he's there to break stuff too, he'll go along.

I don't feel like he ever coulda been a bully, but could totally have filled the role of "toady" to a higher up bully.

Bojangles Cajun filet biscuits are proof of a kind and loving god. They serve them all day too, unlike those tightasses at Chick-Fil-A.

 

Gamby and Russell insulting each other simultaneously during their meeting in the woods was the scene I had to watch twice this week. You can tell Russell's going to take Gamby to such a dark place that I'm already dreading watching it.

post #74 of 442

Ok, these posts have me craving.  Taking my daughter to Bojangles tonight after we see Secret Life of Pets.  It's Bo Time!

I moved to Southport back in May.  Is that movie theater any good? We started to go to Jaws last night, but I was too lazy to leave the house.

post #76 of 442

I like it.  The kids who work the counter are super chill, they have good projectors, and it's cheap cheap cheap.  DON'T go on a Friday or Saturday night - the teens text and talk all night.  Also, the bathrooms are kinda gross.

 

I refuse to go to the place in Shallotte.  The screw up the projection constantly and the staff are mostly "sassy motherfuckers".  Carmike on Cinema Drive in Wilmington is also pretty awful.

 

The crown jewel of the region is, of course, Mayfaire Regal 16.  I know a lot of Chewers boycott Regal and their mysterious ACA-busting roller-coaster piston thingy, but you have to consider your other options dog.  I watched all three Hobbit movies in HFR 3D there and have no regrets - they also spiked the ball on TDKR in Imax.  Great projection, great staff, great location.  Which Which is a regional Sandwich place one block from there, it's fantastic.  There's also a Five Guys nearby.

 

I'll PM you when I put more paintings up at Silver Coast in downtown Southport - I'll be doing a meet and greet type thing with (hopefully) lots of local friends aged 25 - 60 or so.  You can PM me anytime, no big whoop.

post #77 of 442

Glad to hear its a decent theater.  I've been wary of it because of how ridiculously cheap it is. 

 

I'm from the area, so Mayfaire is usually where we head to see stuff.   I'll have to check out Which Which next time we're in that area.  The last time we went to the Shallotte theater we had to hang around for an hour because their showtimes on their website were wrong.  Which wouldn't be a big deal if we didn't live 45 minutes away and if we weren't in Shallotte ("Well...you wanna walk around Lowes for an hour?").

 

Do give me a heads up next time you have more paintings up.  The stuff in the PCIB forum is very cool.

Just rewatched this latest episode. LOL @ Gamby's daughter's horse being named "Shadowfax."

post #79 of 442

This show is unusual.

post #80 of 442
Walton Goggins was surely missed ep. 3.
post #81 of 442

"I believe that's what the children call Truffle Butter."

post #82 of 442

"Salad bar is dine-in only."

 

"Fuckin' cocksucker."

 

Definitely missed not having Goggins for the whole episode. Still good though.

post #83 of 442
Love the occasional dips into a synth score. It's a really unusual choice, but it works.
post #84 of 442

I can't really explain why, but the reveal of the high school kids fucking their brains out cracked me the hell up.

Loved the awkwardness of Gamby saying that slavery shouldn't be depicted whilst tapping the black student in front of him on the shoulder, as though saying "I've got your back, girl!"

That was great, but Gamby projecting his own failure on to a kid who clearly succeeded in that area was the cherry on top.

Gamby's creepy obsession being exposed (at least to one person) was perhaps the most squirm-inducing thing on the show so far.
post #87 of 442

"You think you know about wine, sweetheart? What wine pairs good with TEN DAYS ISS? Huh? Is it a Zinfandel? Is it a FUCKING SHIRAZ?!?"

 

Loved the drum-cadence version of "Drop It Like Its Hot." One thing that's absolutely great about this show are the marching band and drumline backing-tracks.

I don't think I've seen better discomfort comedy since the British Office. Usually I can't stomach this style, but Jody Hill is really a natural fit for it, and McBride has a weird, impossible likability that somehow makes it compelling. Gamby is completely vile and weak, and yet I can't look away.

That whole "fucked butthole" exchange. Jesus.

Agreed, although it helped that his psychotic presence was still there thanks to that Snodgrass bio he put together. That brief shot of the shredded bank receipt painstakingly taped together cracked me up.

Someone just pointed this out on another site, but the male student fucking the girl in that scene was in Too Many Cooks:

This week's moments I had to watch twice: the incredibly goofy/happy look on Gamby's face during his slo-mo walk just before he gets hit by the meat and "You know what is bullshit, Kyle Gephardt? You are."

post #93 of 442
The use of slow motion in this show borders on genius.

Gamby is half Kenny Powers, half Alan Partridge. Which is what the world needs.

"You want my corn dog? I'm gonna *give you* this corn dog."

 

Also, as a Purdue football-fan, that speech spoke to me.

The last line absolutely killed me.

 

God, I love this show.

post #98 of 442

"You IDIOT -- it absorbs through the skin!!" That line was so funny I had to rewind it because I was laughing too hard to hear anything afterwards.

 

The kids were watching IMDABES. This show is incredible. Anyone think Gamby pulling up his goat-mask will come into play later on? There's a good chance that police detective-guy will find the surveillance-vid of the moment when Gamby did that.

 

(Also: "Taylor, you're a beautiful girl, but what you did here is a piece of horseshit.")

 

Judging from that HBO promo, it looks like PC "safe-space" culture is gonna take it hard up the ass next week, and I can't fucking wait.

post #99 of 442

The AV Club reviews for this are hilarious. So much pearl-clutching. The new staff there makes me feel like that scene on Seinfeld where Jerry is at the opera and notes that the audience there makes him feel tough.

post #100 of 442

Yeah, there's not a better example of what a shitshow AVClub has become, frankly. I used to love that site, now they're Exhibit A for Clint Eastwood's Pussy Generation.
