It’s a great special; old-school vulgar, consistently funny, and flush with the pathos that elevates good stand-up to great. But I’m worried that, largely because of Burr, no one is going to talk about it.
If ‘Righteous Gemstones’ fails to offer a ‘searing commentary’ on the nitty-gritty of bad theology or evangelical politics, it’ll be just fine—so long as it actually brings the laughs.

Syfy’s ‘The Magicians’ is an art project in the form of a television show, something we haven’t seen since ‘Twin Peaks.’
Netflix’s new show ‘Sex Education’ is a thinly veiled attempt to force a young audience into swallowing a dangerous liberal pill.
In season two, ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ improves markedly on its first ten-episode run. But the show’s future still looks bleak.
‘The Clinton Affair’ is a compelling and worthwhile trip down memory lane.
