Product Description

Eastbound & Down (DVD)

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.

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.

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.

This was the role Danny McBride was born to play. He is absolutely perfect in the role of a retired MLB pitcher named Kenny Powers.

Kenny Powers is a man who lacks self awareness almost entirely. Coupled with an ego that just won't quit, this series follows him as he suffers a fall from grace, and attempts to start living a normal, unspectacular life outside of baseball.

This series is brash, rude, and unapologetic. The cast as a whole brings their A game. And there's quite a few returnees from the movie The Foot Fist Way, an earlier Danny McBride film.

I am quite the Danny McBride fan, so I'm a bit biased, but this is one of the best shows I've seen in almost a decade. There's a lot of fun to be had in watching normal people attempt to interact with the Kenny Powers character while getting past his almost total lack of self awareness and selfishness.

I don't want to spoil the show for anyone who hasn't seen it. But if it does sound like something you'd like to watch, at least give seasons one and two a glance. If those episodes don't captivate you, then nothing will.

Danny McBride is just phenomenal in Eastbound and Down! I was immediately hooked after the first episode. I find humor in many different aspects and do not offend easily. Eastbound and Down does not fail to make me laugh. I am embarrassed to say how many times I have watched the complete series (four).

Danny McBride portrays Major League Baseball player Kenny Powers and his downfall. The first season is mostly with Powers adjusting to "Average Joe life," such as getting a job, living with his behaved brother and family, all while trying to maintain his image of self-proclaimed greatness.

I will advise you that there is some strong language, mild violence and nudity. If you're in the mood to laugh, don't let that stop you!

I have no idea why I started watching this show, but I'm glad I did. The vulgar language and subject matter does get a bit irritating at times, however, it is like a train-wreck. Once you start watching you can't stop. WARNING: THIS IS A SHOW YOU WILL BINGE ON!

A very good dark comedy. Perfect for HBO. Danny Mcbride kills as Kenny Powers. A story about a washed up broke once famous baseball player who goes back to his home town to live with his brother. He runs into all kinds of people from his past. The problem? He still acts like he's rich and famous. He's a huge jerk still. Hilarious.A must watch for Will Ferell fans (he has a part and is a producer on the show).

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.

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.
