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 »

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.
