Product Description

Eastbound & Down (DVD)

Amazon.com

Stepping up to the plate in this six-episode HBO series, comedy's newest It Boy, Danny McBride (The Foot Fist Way, Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder), hits it out of the park as Kenny Powers, a former baseball phenom, who, after spending his millions and burning all bridges, returns to his high school to teach physical education. The delusional Powers (he still wears a mullet!) insists that he will return to the majors. Until then, he makes a play for his former high school flame (Katy Mixon), now an art teacher who is engaged to the boring, by-the-book principal (Andrew Daly). He runs roughshod over his brother and his disapproving wife (John Hawkes and Jennifer Irwin), who allow Powers to live with them and their children. He lures the idolizing nerdy band teacher to the dark side. Eastbound and Down has an odd sense of humor. To say that the foul-mouthed, substance-abusing Powers is "inappropriate" is an understatement. He makes Billy Bob Thornton's Bad Santa look like Edmund Gwenn in Miracle on 34th Street). When one of his students repeats his father's claim that Powers ruined baseball, Powers tells the class, "Anybody want to pick on anybody in class, aim for him, because I ain't watching."

Eastbound and Down benefits from some big league talent. Will Ferrell, who helped get The Foot Fist Way into theatres, appears as a car salesman who wants to exploit what's left of Powers' celebrity with predictably disastrous results. Episodes were directed by McBride collaborator Jody Hill (Observe and Report), David Gordon Green (Superbad), and Ferrell's partner in comedy, Adam McKay (Talladega Nights, Anchorman). There are other obnoxious characters on television, but Kenny Powers is in a league of his own, and he may take some warming up to. But McBride imbues this extreme character with an uncompromised integrity that is oddly admirable. Despite what his brother tells him at one point, Powers is someone you like being around. --Donald Liebenson

This is the funniest series I've seen in along time. With only 6 episodes in season 1 you'll be left wanting more. Sarcastic, fun loving assh*le genius Danny McBride with guest appearance Will Ferrell, tie this show into a comedy that leaves you covering your face in embarrassment, wondering how they got the balls create such a gem.

Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. Underrated as hell, spread the word. Kudos, Danny McBride.

Also see the "Foot Fist Way" if you like this DVD.

One of the funniest shows with one of the funniest actors I've seen in a long, long time. He made Pineapple Express. He made Tropic Thunder. Killed it in The Heartbreak Kid and absolutely owns it on this show. Nothing is held back, the season hasn't even completely aired yet and I already want the DVD. Do yourself a favor and watch this show, you'll thank me later.

Danny McBride has found something special in KENNY POWERS. Though Kenny's life states to be ruled by talent and the grace of god. In fact his life is almost complete anarchy riddled with drugs, loose women, and a wall of denial. However even within only 6 episodes you see something change. This man starts to find his way out of the darkness. Danny McBride delivers some of the best SELF ABUSE humor ever. THIS BY FAR IS THE BEST SHOW ON TV. Is it better to burn out or fade away? Do we need a 2nd season, have we burned all the bridges, uncovered all of Kenny's stones? Even if the idiots at network don't renew the series,with only 6 episodes deep it will stand on it's own to become an instant cult classic.

Kenny Powers has a lot in common with the Larry David character in "Curb Your Enthusiasm:" self-centered, obnoxious, and absolutely convinced of his own greatness despite all evidence to the contrary. But the similarities end there. "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is invested with the belief in justice, at least, justice in human relationships. David's misfortunes stem from his insistence on being right, his refusal to apologize, his willingness to lie, cheat, and exploit others for his own ends. In other words, he gets what he deserves.

Kenny Powers, on the other hand, does not suffer any consequences for his unrelenting mistreatment of those closest to him - his brother's family, the kids unlucky enough to be subjected to his gym class, and the band teacher who idolizes him. Instead, he is abused by people to whom he has done nothing, such as the school principal and Will Ferrell's hilarious auto dealer. One can only conclude that these characters despise Powers for having allowed his career to disintegrate.

I disagree with other reviewers' contention that Powers grows or evolves by the series' end. The final scene proves that he has learned nothing. The eventual affection of his former flame, who he relentlessly stalks through the series, is not credible - unless she is a lot shallower than she first appears to be.

It is fun to watch a racist, sexist, ignorant character make a fool of himself, but "Eastbound and Down" shortchanges in this regard as well. If you enjoy that sort of thing, "Borat" makes Kenny Powers look like a Hugh Grant character. Overall, a minor and forgettable series.

This show is the best thing to come out in a while. You just can't get enough of Kenny Powers. He's one of those characters with few redeeming qualities, yet you can't help but like and cheer for him. Danny McBride nails it and the rest of the cast just play off of him. Please HBO, we need more seasons of this!

One of the funniest TV shows ever. It's a literal cornucopia of comedy quotes you'll be repeating over and over to fellow fans of the show. Danny McBride is at his best as Kenny Powers. Classic stuff. I am definitely going to be buying the DVDs when they come out so I can watch the shows all over again. I really hope HBO does another season of this one. It's the best thing they done since The Sopranos. Highly recommended.

The first season of Eastbound and Down is, by far, the funniest show that I have ever seen. It has a lot of replay value. A lot of the jokes are funnier the second time around. Danny McBride has created one of the most memorable characters in Kenny Powers.

When I heard Jody Hill and Danny McBride were working on a television show my curiosity was peaked. I really enjoyed the Foot Fist Way and was hoping for something similar. Suffice to that all of my expectations were met.

The show is about an out of work major league baseball player named Kenny Powers...Forced out of the league due to drug use and a lacking performance, he moves to a small town to live with his brother. Eventually Kenny gets a job subbing at an elementary school where he meets up with an old flame who's engaged to the extremely nerdy principal.

The 6 episodes follow Kenny Powers as he attempts to get back into MLB. A lot of familiar faces pop up throughout the series, Will Farrel and Craig Robinson just to name a few.

The comedy style is similar to that of the Apatow crew, so if you're a fan of those films then this will be up your alley. However, some people have grown tired of that clan, but I urge you to set aside your differences and check out this show with an open mind.

Now lets talk about the DVD. Along with all the season 1 episodes you're getting a very nice making of featurette. The usual deleted scenes, outtakes, and commentaries on a few episodes. Rounding out the disc is Kenny Powers' Greatest Hits, Schaeffer Motor Commercials, and Stevie's Dark Secret which are all featured in the show, only expanded to full length.

Rude, crude, and hilarious, this is one series you do not want to miss.
