AVClub: Vice Principals has struggled to establish its identity in the early going of its first season. Shoddy character motivations and a throwaway episode have contributed to an overall feeling of listlessness. Considering that Vice Principals already knows its fate in terms of future seasons—HBO, Danny McBride, and Jody Hill have agreed to 18 total episodes across two seasons—it sure is taking its time crafting a meaningful and engaging overarching narrative. That doesn’t mean that the show isn’t enjoyable from week to week. Largely, Vice Principals has been funny and ludicrous in the right amounts. But there’s nothing that suggests we should be tuning in each and every week.
