Fortunately, Vida (Ana de la Reguera), a shapely nightclub singer, helps Kenny to forget his past, though she finds the team owner (Michael Peña) equally enticing. Unfortunately, Kenny's bad attitude threatens his relationship, his job, and even his friendship with the puppy dog-like Stevie. Just when his antics can't get more tiresome, Kenny reconnects with a long-lost relative (Don Johnson with scraggly extensions), who inspires him to stop running from his problems and face them head on. Then, when he makes peace with a former enemy (Adam Scott) and a major-league scout (Matthew McConaughey), it appears as if his fortunes are about to turn.
As with the first season, producers Jody Hill and David Gordon Green handle directorial duties and play to writer-creator McBride's strengths, but the coke-snorting egotist won't be to all tastes. Like the fictional Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm--or real-life pitcher John Rocker--he's an equal-opportunity offender, but in a cruder context. And set to a hipper soundtrack, something that also distinguishes the feature-film work of Hill and Green. Oscar nominee John Hawkes (Winter's Bone), who plays Kenny's level-headed brother, makes a repeat appearance for the surprisingly sentimental finale. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Amazingly, the second season of Eastbound and Down manages to maintain the standard of hilarity that the first one established, and even SURPASSES it. This is particularly impressive, considering that this season could not rely upon the crowd-pleasing presence of Will Ferrell, prancing about his BMW dealership in a white wig.
One must be careful, however- if you watch too much of this show in one sitting, Kenny Powers' attitude WILL rub off on you! And you absolutely cannot show up to the office spouting off whatever's on your mind, a la Kenny Powers. This outrageous character has absolutely no filter, and no comprehension of what socially acceptable behavior is. And that's a big part of what makes Eastbound and Down so ridiculously funny. Danny McBride was quite possibly born to play this role. And every time you begin to think this guy couldn't be any more of a self-centered low life, he starts to redeem himself, and show that he just might be human after all. His tough exterior, brash behavior, and dismissal of anyone who doesn't happen to be named "Kenny Powers" is really nothing more than an elaborate, psychological self-defense mechanism- but that doesn't make it any less funny and delightful.Read more ›
You must get the DVD if you're a hardcore Kenny Powers fan. Can't wait to season two again to discover all the things I missed in the HBO presentation!!
