Tossing this out there for my friends as it’s super easy to miss, and by no means should it be missed.

Righteous Gemstones.....HBO Max.

Disclaimer: If you like Danny McBrides very specific type of humor ( East Bound and Down, Vice Principals) then watch this immediately. If you don’t, and there are many that don’t, then DO NOT watch.

I’m a fan of the style. And this one is the best yet.
One season, more to come.
Premise: The Gemstones are filthy rich, all from founding/preaching at one of these mega-churches. Not particularly religious and not good people, they bulldoze everything to make $$ ( in the name of the Lord of course).

The patriarch is John Goodman, his arse kidding sons are Danny McBride and Adam Devine.
They are just so good in that role.
The cousin/uncle is Baby Billy, played BRILLIANTLY by Walter Goggins.

The show is sweet at times, great story that cliff hangs often, and mixed with McBride’s undeniably unique style.

I don’t recommend often, but this ones easy to miss and it’s just excellent.

So we’re talkin’ ‘bout Baptized Gemstones?

I just stumbled on it. McBride created the entire thing.

Saw him in interviews after, its amazing how genuine, kind, and thoughtful he is. I guess it just surprised me because he's so different from his character. Like 180 degrees different.

Walton Goggins is a fantastic actor. That show overall is great, can't wait till the next season.
