Trivia

In his original draft, Danny McBride had written about a pastor being caught having an affair and having to engage in blackmail to stop it being leaked. The Gemstones were just a part of the church and weren't the main focus. Danny realised that he had much more fun writing for the Gemstones, and thus shifted the story to be from their perspective.

Very funny and smart comedy
19 August 2019 | by cartsghammondSee all my reviews

I've been waiting for this show ever since the sneak peak image of the cast released a couple months ago and frankly, I am not disappointed, Danny McBride is hilarious and so is the rest of the cast. There of course will be some negative reviews on here saying that it's anti Christian propaganda, but I don't see it as that at all. This is a satire on how power of any sort can be corrupted. HBO has landed another great comedy, excited to keep watching.
