    Anyone watching this on HBO? I think it is funny as shit. Walton Goggins and Danny McBride are great.

    And a real stupid turn with the last scene. I have a hard time buying that even a goof like him wouldn't know how ultra stupid that was.

    Goggins didn't impress me in the 1st episode, but he out-shined McBride in that 2nd episode. He was fucking great. Really hoping it keeps getting better. I rewatched Eastbound and Down season 1 recently and was surprised at how lame the last 2 episodes were. The first 4 were full on and then everything just slowed down.

    I don't want to ruin the movei, so anyone who hasn't seen episode 2 shouldn't click the tag.

    Do you think someone was setting up a frame job on someone else by giving him that broach and telling him to pawn it?

    I can't remember the last TV show that had me laugh this hard. Probably Eastbound and Down.

    Jody Hill and Danny McBride promise you do not know where 'Vice Principals' is going
    I feel like we're in good hands here, people

    When you look at the first episode of Eastbound & Down and the final episode, it’s surprising to see just how much emotional ground that show covered. If the entire series had been set at that high school and just dealt with Kenny Powers coming to terms with his own life’s left turns, it would have been a beautiful ending, but much smaller scale than what the show eventually became when it ended three seasons later.

    One of the benefits of the way they shot their new HBO series Vice Principals, which they wrote and directed along with David Gordon Green, John Carcieri, and Adam Countee, is that they knew right away how they wanted to end the nine-hour movie they were making, and they shot the entire thing in one long stretch. Both seasons are done. You’ll get two nine-episode runs, and when that’s finished, the story is over.

    And they promise that you have no idea where that ending is going to take you.

    I really like the sort of storytelling that these guys are known for, and I fully acknowledge that what they do is not for everyone. But that’s kind of the point. So much of what is produced these days is produced in an effort to reach the most people possible, to make the most money possible, to be as broad in its appeal as possible. People treat it like a science. There is a formula that international financiers look at to try to make that happen. It’s a constant push if you’re looking for any serious money at all, and these guys… they don’t care. They’ve found a place where they can tell the kinds of stories about the kinds of characters that interest them, and they’re taking full advantage of the freedom that affords them.

    We get a wee bit spoilery here, but I’ve only seen the first six episodes myself. I also try to keep most of the conversation general, more about the craft than the story points. We talk about how you get Bill Murray to make an appearance in your show, the weird and wonderful Walton Goggins, Danny McBride’s shock at learning he was going to be in an Alien movie, and Jody’s upcoming feature The Legacy Of A Whitetail Deer Hunter.

    I worship the ground McBride walks on, so I was stoked for this show. Kenny Powers lite as a VP? I'M THERE. However, the first episode, while good, left me wanting more. I got more and then some with Sunday's episode, my wife and I laughed like crazy and yes, I hate to say it but I agree with the other poster above, Goggins' out-shined Danny in this episode..this is going to be a fun series, those 2 play well off each other.
