Vice Principles, a tv show review

A tv show review written by: Lee Sonogan

(2016) 30min/Comedy


HBO has been pumping out some good stuff lately. This show was recommended by a friend and it was better than I expected. This show stars Danny McBride and Walton Goggins. The show is about an overprotective father who is obsessed with becoming a principal and competes against the other vice principal. However, something happens that makes them work together to save the day. The show has many themes of power in its overall story. It is one of the best comedy shows of this year.

Bill Murray is no stranger to making the odd cameo. He’s added Vice Principals to his resume in 2016 by guest-starring in the first episode as the principal whose retirement sets the story’s wheels in motion. This series shot two seasons back to back, a highly unusual move for a TV series. This 18 part miniseries was written in its entirety, which took approximately a year before it was cast or shot. Was shot at Stall High School in North Charleston, SC. The original concept for Vice Principals was set to be a feature film.

Overall, normally I am not the biggest fan of Danny McBride as watching some Eastbound down. But this show surprised me and even more that Danny Mcbride actually wrote it. Danny Mcbride and Walton Goggins have on-screen chemistry in the story that leads to some very funny scenes. The end of the first season leaves with a cliffhanger and I am actually pumped to see what happens when the second season starts. I recommend this tv show to people who like comedies with a lot of sass dialogue and brutal/direct humour. Also, people who like the actor Walton Goggins.
