Critic Reviews

  1. I can't say the pilot struck me as especially funny, but there are good things and talented people in it, and it looks good.

    Eastbound & Down, is a funny show if you don't expect too much.
  3. Eastbound & Down feels static.
  4. Maybe McBride has more pitches in his arsenal than he's shown so far, but the repertoire on display in Eastbound & Down feels too limited for a long stint on HBO's mound.

    Drugs. Pratfalls. Bodily excretions. Sexual crudity. Shock-jock ethnic humor. Four-letter words flying like lead in a matineee Western. Character development and story? Not so much.

Every season reinvents the show. And every episode breaks new and hilarious story ground. Full Review »
