I am excited about this because of Danny McBride and John Goodman. I am not excited about this because of Adam Devine.

Loved Eastbound and Down.

Loved Vice Principals.

Looking forward to this. I have it saved on my DVR but haven't gotten around to watching yet.

I'll keep watching, but the first episode didn't do it for me.

Goodman's many talents seem wasted so far. I love McBride's last two shows, but so far this isn't as good as those for me. Great subject material for sure, but not a great show yet.

[Edited on August 21, 2019 at 12:47 AM. Reason : Adam Devine doesn't add anything good here. He probably detracts.

[Edited on August 21, 2019 at 12:49 AM. Reason : looking forward to Walton Goggins at least]

Last episode had a big part at Eastland Mall in Charlotte. I like it that Danny McBride's shows are always located in NC.

^I don't know who Jody Hill is, is she the producer? I guess she made all three of these shows?

Yeah, he's been involved in a lot the McBride shows/movies (and observe and report w/ rogen). Either writer, director and/or producer. To my knowledge, only oberve and report wasn't mostly or partly filmed in NC. I think he and McBride met at NC School of Art.

(foot fist way was filmed in concord, tails of a white tail dear hunger (w/ josh brolin) was filmed in NC mountains, some of the eastbound and down scenes were filmed in my middle school)

That wasn't Eastland Mall in Charlotte. Eastland's been closed forever. That was Citadel Mall in Charleston, SC with a sign that said Eastland.

I may be imagining it but it seems like each of the series has a handful of references to various NC stuff? Stuff like Eastland Mall (that Frosh pointed out was not actually Eastland, but they slapped a sign on it) and in Vice Principals they brought up Bojangles a lot which, although is all over the southeast now, started in NC. It's been a few years since I watched Eastbound and Down but I'm pretty sure Kenny Powers' hometown was in Shelby, NC.

EB&D was filmed in Wilmington (at two different schools). And in Myrtle Beach.

Also, Jody Hill makes a brief cameo in Super Bad (and EB&D)

I suspect that you will see a lot more McBride/Hill/Green productions getting filmed in the Charleston area since their production company, Rough House Pictures, is based there.

Liked the recent episode giving background on Baby Billy and Eli's relationship as well as showing the Gemstone kids growing up. Jesse's gotta learn not to puke on the burgers.

Although this is still ultimately a very silly show, it is way more serious than McBride's other two. John Goodman is doing an excellent job.

I found that my favorite episodes from Justified were when Walton Goggins' character was preaching. Currently wishing I had HBO to see this.
