This show is going to be good.  Great opening show.  I was sold when the wave pool turned on during the mass baptism.

McBride standing in front of the projector with the micropeen right by his mouth had me fucking rolling.

I think he and Devine have good chemistry going for this. With Goodman playing the straight man to their shenanigans this just makes for great comedy.

Yeah really enjoyed the first episode.

Several great moments, but "I hope he dies too, baby" and "Faggot!" both caught me off guard and had me rolling.

I think I am really going to like this, but I hope it can sustain an hour each week.  I loved that Eastbound and Down and Vice Principals were both half hour shows.

I am in this camp.....thought the episode last night was uneven and wouldn't have thought to give the series a second chance were it not for the fact that McBride and his writing team delivered on Eastbound and Down and Vice Principals. Suspect it will get better but "dramedies" as this one appears to be shaping up as are a hard line to walk.

30 min in and I can only think of this being Osteen and what Lakewood is really like.

Oh I am sure Osteen was a source of inspiration and his "church" was studied for this show.

I called the 3rd one being Gideon before he even took off the mask, much less when he rang the doorbell at the end of the episode.

You're one step ahead of Danny McBride, hornian.  That's damn impressive.  Kenny Powers puts John Huston to shame

The actor that plays Gideon is also on “Santa Clarita Diet” - he’s the nerdy neighbor best friend of the Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore’s daughter.

And the youngest Gemstone, Kelvin is totally gay and in a relationship with the DMV guy that worships him, yes?

I don’t think he’s acted on it.

I just watched 2015 Vacation and the actor playing the bullied older brother also played Gideon.

He’s good in Booksmart too.

Thought that episode kinda sucked 

Needs more derogatory Conway Twitty 

I think they thought the Gideon reveal would be a big mind-blower, but just about everyone saw it from a mile away. 

Still enjoyed it, though.

Reformed satanist dude played Ozzy in the Dirt.   He cracks me up.  

You sure you’re not confusing him with his scrotum-double from the weights scene?

Let me guess, the title of your pilot is:

”T’aint Misbehavin’!” ???

Yeah wtf with the dicks.

Also, knew I recognized Johnny Seasons with his dipshit Peaky Blinders haircut.  Dermot Mulroney, apparently not identified anywhere in the cast.

Agree.  The dick to bewbz ratio is all out of proportion so far.  Not good.

I did laugh at the sister- "stick it in his bottom".  She's definitely got a dark side to her.
