If I have to hear about shooting someone in the dick one more time while waiting for Game of Thrones to start...

Nuclear take: Vice Principals is a better show than Game of Thrones

There are some fine people on both shows.

I had to watch that trailer twice to see if I missed someone saying something about shooting someone in the dick the first time...but nope, still didn't catch it. So: either I'm slow, or the viewing of this trailer is safe to watch for everyone afraid to hear about shooting someone in the dick.

It's from the ad that has been running for the past month on HBO, didn't bother to watch the new trailer

I see. I even had the subtitles on when I watched the trailer, so I was slightly confused.

Anybody watching S2? I've only seen the first two and despite liking them I'm a bit behind. Just wondering if it's worth catching up.

It was shot in tandem with Season 1, so it's got the same tone and quality. I don't know why you'd stop now if you've liked what's led up to it. It was always envisioned to be an 18 episode series split over two seasons.

I still think it's the most exciting, darkly hilarious thing on television.

At this point in time, yes.

Walton Goggins is so good in this that if there were any justice, he’d have won an Emmy for the first season and would be a shoo-in for the second already, but I get the impression that hardly anyone watches this, let alone awards voters, so. C’est la vie.

also working against him is the fact that it's the kind of performance you forget is as good as it is because he so thoroughly embodies the character. I have to actively remind myself of his other work to sometimes truly appreciate how excellent he is here

His performance in the latest episode Think Change (S02E04) alone is awards worthy. The ending is one of the most deeply and darkly cathartic things put on screen. I think most of my favourite moments have been Russell's interactions with his family, especially the way Christine treats him so lovingly but with such complete awareness.

Absolutely love this show and I'm constantly surprised by how far they delve into the psychology of power and trauma.

Oddly, I find tremendous satisfaction whenever Neal & Ray interact. I enjoy how calmly and fairly Ray treats Neal despite the normally antagonistic nature of that type of dynamic in the aftermath of a failed marriage. Somehow I never question the fact that Neal & Ray are friends.

That's great too. I'm pretty sure there's been a switch from Gamby having hostility towards both Gale and Ray, to now where he's still fighting with Gale but sees Ray as a friend and an ally. My memory fails me as to whether there was a specific moment but I'd like to think it was Ray's fairness and sincerity that contributed to some growth in Neal.
