Vice Principals cast 

"Vice Principals" review by Suzanne 7/18/16
Airs Sundays 10:30pm on HBO

I really was looking forward to this show because I just love Walton Goggins, who stars in this sitcom as Lee. Danny McBride stars as Neal. They're both the Vice Principals in the title.  McBride created and writes the show as well, and the focus of show is definitely more on him than anyone else.

These two guys work in a high school, competing to see who will be Principal. When the current Principal (Bill Murray-I don't know why he's in the pilot playing the straight man) retires, the two find out that they have a new obstacle - a new black woman, who's chosen to be Principal, so they have to team up to defeat her.

I found this to be very disappointing, even though my expectations were pretty low after seeing some trailers. It's just not funny whatsoever.  All of the characters are completely pathetic and dislikable. It's all silly and slapstick. No one would ever act like this in real life, let alone in a school. I don't know why anyone would ever find this funny. Maybe if you're sitting around smoking pot or you're just really bored (or stupid), then you might like it. Skip it and go find re-runs of "Justified" to watch instead. It's not too funny, but it's Walton Goggins best work so far.


From Danny McBride and Jody Hill, Vice Principals is a dark comedy telling the story of North Jackson High School, and the two people who almost run it -- the Vice Principals. The series stars Danny McBride and Walton Goggins as the school administrators in an epic power struggle for the top spot of school Principal. Told over the course of a single school year, the first season takes place during the fall, with the second and final season to covering the spring term, each with nine episodes. Joining McBride and Hill as executive producer and director is longtime collaborator David Gordon Green.
