    The best Danny McBride gave us so far. I absolutely love this series and think it's so underrated. More people should know about this "gemstone".
  • Nov 08, 2021
    I'm enjoying this show very much.
  • Oct 12, 2021
    Great show. Ingenious and well executed. Sad there aren't more seasons.
  • Sep 03, 2021
    Danny McBride may be the US's answer to Julia Davis.
  • May 18, 2021
    Great series,hope they do the 2nd season to match the city themed celebrity styled churches and their hypocrisy.
  • Dec 25, 2020
    Hilarious and irrelevant.
  • Sep 05, 2020
    Absurd and fun, yet humanizing and empathetic. This is the best I have seen from Danny McBride and actually made me love and understand his comedic style much more. Even though the show's plot is moved forward by some of the characters' hypocritical indiscretions and crimes, the show does not condemn religion, megachurches, or even the characters themselves. The characters have depth and complexities that take what could have been caricature and instead give it humanity.
  • Aug 02, 2020
    Good concept, great characters, funny, creative show by Danny McBride.
  • Aug 02, 2020
    Fresh comedy. Great casting. Pretty engaging script for a comedy.
  • Feb 21, 2020
    The Righteous Gemstones has its moments, but shorter episodes and more thoroughly developed characters could bring it to the next level.
