VICE PRINCIPALS REVIEWED
“Vice Principals” was a hard film to slip into regularly watching during the summer. While I love the “Eastbound” crew, the first two episodes didn’t quite nail down the Goggins/McBride vibe. Thankfully, that all changed. Kimberly Hebert Gregory takes on the thankless role of being the target of the two leads’ scorn and admiration. She’s not that important in the grand scheme of things, but she’s their key to a better life. Honestly, it’s like the last 8 years of American politics wrapped into a show.
Knowing that we’re getting a second season makes the lack of a conclusion work for me. That being said, “Eastbound & Down” didn’t become great by the end of its first season. It was a series that improved by being a completed story that an audience could rewatch and enjoy. If you enjoy McBride’s band of comedy, this might take awhile to enjoy. While it’s weird to say that he is really reserved in the series, I don’t know how else to put it. If you can handle a style change, this will do it for you. Honestly, I’m just going to hang with it until Season 2 arrives on HBO.
