Trivia

Danny McBride stated that he didn't want this show to bash religion; rather he wanted it to lampoon hypocrites. He grew up in the church, and his mother did puppet ministry, and he wanted to take the alternate route that Hollywood does of making fun of one's religious beliefs. See more »

Original And Hilarious
21 August 2019 | by MellowStelloSee all my reviews

Wonderfully talented ensemble cast! Everyone brings something to the table.

Danny McBride never fails to deliver, in my humble opinion.

I'm always pleasantly surprised by how enthralling McBride HBO productions can be. Like Vice Principles and Eastbound & Down, this series packs a comedic punch while also maintaining a shroud of mystery around the main plot.

I've been a fan of Danny McBride since before Hot Rod and Land of the Lost, but he's really becoming a decorated professional. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
