Boozy Beginnings: The Righteous Gemstones Pilot

I'ma Need More Wine Podcast

Jun 14 2023 • 1 hr 16 mins

Happy Wine Wednesday! The Righteous Gemstones are FINALLY returning for a new season, so I thought this was a perfect time to revisit the pilot episode of this amazing HBO series.

We kick off our discussion with the cold open in which we get a preview into the Gemstone family dynamics during a 24-hour baptism marathon in China. We then discuss our introductions to Eli, Jesse, Judy, and Kelvin as we follow them to their respective homes.  I had a lot of questions about Jesse's evening routine.

We love all of the shows in the Danny McBride-verse, so of course we talk about his imprint on on this show - particularly the dialogue between characters.  As always, we close out the discussion with our less than wholesome thirsty thoughts.  We discuss the need for a scientific exploration of the stereotypes about preacher's kids and which famous preacher's kid we would choose to carry out this very important research.

Friendly reminder - we drink, we know things, we use adult language, and we have a great time.
