In this hilarious new HBO comedy series from Executive Producers including Will Ferrell, Kenny Powers, a washed-up former Major League Baseball star, is forced to return to his hometown to teach P.E. at his old middle school. While preparing for his triumphant return to the big leagues, Kenny moves in with his brother's family and proves adept at burning every bridge he crosses.]]>
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

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.
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.
