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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm a female with absolutely no interest in sports, and am madly in love with this show! So well-written and so funny. My husband and I are praying that HBO brings it back for a second season.

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.

Funniest mini series ever made by HBO! Can't wait for season 2 to be posted on Amazon VOD. Will Ferrell is at his best as Ashley Schaffer, a Rick Flair look alike.
