The Righteous Gemstones

No current comedy delivers spit-take dialogue and blindingly original gags with the freight-train efficiency of The Righteous Gemstones and season 3 took this show to the next level. From the game show Baby Billy's Bible Bonkers to a custom monster truck called The Redeemer to the physical confrontation between Judy Gemstone's two lovers, Righteous Gemstones season 3 gave us a dozen iconic scenes we never knew we needed.

Why we needed this fandom this year

It might be a stretch to call any of the hilariously terrible members of the Righteous Gemstones “redeemed“ at the end of season 3. But it's always worth reminding yourself that even the most selfish, narcissistic, craven, debauched, and arrogant of us are still deserving of love and capable of sharing it. We all contain multitudes.

What was the icon or totem for this fandom this year?

Sturgill Simpson's small supporting role in the show grew week to week and his acapella version of All the Gold in California was a stunningly unexpected treat that transcended the silliness of the show.
