Danny McBride talks to EW about why Season Two of VICE PRINCIPALS will be the last

Danny McBride and Walton Goggins have appeared together on EW: The Show to discuss the return of Vice Principals to HBO. Season Two is already looking promising from a very action-packed trailer and an equally action-packed first episode. McBride discussed in the interview that he wanted to give viewers a full and complete story, something with a clear beginning, middle and end and he has decided to do this by completing this story at the end of the current season. He also went on to discuss how he “had been burned” by TV shows in the past that he invested a lot of time in only to see dwindle out in later seasons saying that...

Vice Principals Season Two Premiere: “Tiger Town”

Vice Principals Season Two Premiere: “Tiger Town”

Vice Principals is back on our screens so all must be right in the world. After an explosive Season One finale and a very tantalizing trailer for Season Two, the anticipation for the premiere episode was sky high as we see how Neal Gamby is handling being shot in the shoulder and hip by a masked assassin. First of all, almost everything that we saw in the trailer happened in the very first episode which is a welcome change of pace from episode director David Gordon Green. A critique of Season One was that there were too many episodes that passed by without moving the narrative along, however if this first episode is anything to go by then...

Vice Principals Season Two Trailer Breakdown

Vice Principals Season Two Trailer Breakdown

Vice Principals returns to our screens in just over two weeks time and it looks like Neal Gamby (McBride) and Lee Russell (Goggins) have nothing but revenge on their curriculums. This isn’t the first time that Danny McBride and Jody Hill have created a school centred dark comedy as Eastbound and Down’s very first season echoes clearly throughout Vice Principals, and while Neal Gamby and Kenny Powers are two very different characters, both have similar flaws in that they are selfish, lonely and ultimately powerless. Before we take apart the latest trailer which does well to whet the appetite for the coming weeks, let’s take a quick...

Vice Principals Season Finale: “End of the Line”

Vice Principals Season Finale: “End of the Line”

Vice Principals has come to an end with a glorious, good old fashioned ‘whodunnit’ mystery cliff hanger. Forget JR, the question on everyone’s lips is now going to be ‘Who Shot NG?’. The season got progressively better for me, it started out a little unpolished, a little heavy handed and attempts at humor felt lazy. However, the characters have progressed and developed and the story broadened making it a really excellent, well rounded series which gives you just enough that you want more and more. True to form, the season finale was dark as we saw Gamby and Russell lure Principal Brown out on to the train tracks (I’m not entirely...

Vice Principals: “The Foundation of Learning” & “The Good Book”

Vice Principals: “The Foundation of Learning” & “The Good Book”

The saga of Neal Gamby and Lee Russell continues further in the two latest episodes of Vice Principals and each week we are moving further and further away from their initial intention of taking down Principal Brown so that Gamby can become Principal. It would seem that this simple premise was merely a catalyst to create a deep and meaningful bond between the two faculty members and their plans have taken a huge back seat so that they can deal with more pressing matters. The only one who seems to still have an investment in the idea is Lee, Gamby has dropped the matter, like a child who’s bored of his new toy. In last weeks episode,...

Vice Principals: “Circles”

Vice Principals: “Circles”

Vice Principals has taken an interesting turn the last couple of weeks, I am not entirely sure what story Jody Hill and Danny McBride are trying to tell but it certainly feels like it is building up to something. I’ve been thinking it for a few episodes now and I honestly would not be surprised if the climax of the season resulted in a murder. Gamby and Russell are completely on the edge, if knuckle-dusting a body builder wasn’t enough to prove that, stay tuned. Last week saw a divide in Gamby and Russell’s partnership develop as Russell wanted to sabotage the school’s chances at winning the homecoming football game and Gamby...

Vice Principals: “The Field Trip”

Vice Principals: “The Field Trip”

This weeks episode of Vice Principals was a refreshing change from trash talking Prinicpal Brown and focused more on Neal Gamby and the objects of his desire; success and Miss Snodgrass. The vulgar, sharp tongued Lee Russell only featured in the opening scene of the episode but it felt like they tried to cram as much distasteful and uncomfortable language as possible as they watched Principal Brown park her car and approach the school. Baring in mind that her house was burned to the ground (by Gamby and Russell I might add) it would be excuseable for her not to entirely be herself. Russell and Gamby discuss in a wholly disrespectful way her...
