Yeah, not too far from me there's a "church" in a fucking WAREHOUSE. There's also a megachurch around here too. Seem like weird cults to me, but they're Christian, so I guess it's acceptable.

Wow that's nuts, I've never seen anything like that in my life. And yeah, the way it's depicted on the show totally reminds me of a cult, but hey they're Christian so that makes it ok.

This is Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church

I don't blame you. The first time I went down south and saw a megachurch I almost shit myself. They are by far the biggest scams in the US. The "pastors" are laughing all the way to the airport for their last minute vacation on their private jet.

Watched the first 3 episodes... thought it was ok so far.

I also suspect Goodman will be killed off - unless the show will be only 1-2 seasons long.

McBride looks older than his real-life 42 years. Seems like he's aged a lot the last few years.

Fuck, he's only 42?? Damn, he looks way older than me and I'm 51.

I'm really happy that Goggins is in this too.

I laughed the minute I got a look at him and his hair. Then when they called his old man character 'Baby Billy' I really lost it. He is so perfect for this sort of thing. The way he is uniquely able to give a phenomenal performance while at the same time be so over-the-top funny is damned impressive. There's a reason this guy gets calls from both McBride and Tarantino.

^ The way he was slapping the rival church’s men with the baby mannequin arm at the end of the last episode was cracking me up.

Danny McBride looks like he might have a heart attack any second.

That "church" will always be The Summit to me. Funny that the venue I saw Judas Priest, AC/DC, Def Leppard, Rush, Queensryche etc. and the occasional Rockets game became a church.

I guess you can say the venue was converted.

The funniest line of the series so far:
”Hacked?! Who hacked my husband’s phone, North Korea?!”

Well, that was unexpected. Goodman and Goggins are so good. The kid who played young McBride was excellent. Who played Goodman’s wife? She was excellent as well.

Its funny how much better the show is without McBride, He should stick to writing.
