Audience Reviews for Vice Principals: Season 1

  • Mar 03, 2021
    Surprisingly mean but not without its moments.
  • Aug 20, 2019
    As a fan I give it 4 stars. If I was a non fan I'd likely give it 2.
  • Jan 04, 2019
    While it may not be the best show on tv, Vice Principals is still funny, clever, and benefits from great performances from it's two leads.
  • Oct 05, 2018
    While it may be mean spirited, Walton Goggins and Danny McBride will make you laugh from start to finish.
  • Mar 09, 2018
    Just started watching this with my wife, and while we were skeptical at first, it's really been funny. I'm not a huge Danny McBride fan, but this role is perfect for him. As always, Walton Goggins steals the show and his hilarious. Good stuff!

    maad tip top good show
  • Nov 05, 2017
    Hilariously Dark, if you don't like dark comedy or get offended easily you won't like this show.
  • Oct 10, 2017
    While I wasn't often laughing out loud and mostly cringing I found this one of the most watchable shows of 2016 that wasn't an hour long drama. McBride is doing his usual schtick and it doesn't quite have the same kick as Eastbound and Down and Goggins delivers a brilliantly smarmy performance. It is one of those 'hard to watch' comedies as you see two characters go between utterly reprehensible and tragically embarrassing and in my mind definitely one of the better in the genre. The show also has a real visual flair, a good crispness and while I find many TV shows devolve into nothing but close ups or over the shoulders Vice Principals has plenty of wide shots, longer takes and a real sense you're watching these characters interact rather than just read lines into the camera. The comedy may be mean spirited and crass but McBride and Goggins prove that when it comes to mean spirited and crass they deliver a masterclass while still having room for subtlety and interesting character moments. Highly recommended though definitely not for everyone!

    Fantastic show with the Danny McBride classic humor with a touch of new school. Walter Goggins is perfect to opposite McBride. This show is spectacular and hilarious.
