    Kenny Powers **** rocks, and if you don't think so, you can get **** (His words, not mine). The second season kicks off basically in the exact fashion that made the first so funny. Incredible monologues of profanity and ego-fuelled tirades aimed at the Mexican locals are the high point. Kenny is backed by a great supporting cast - including one Stevie Janowski - who pretty much steals the show as Kenny's star-struck BFF. Expand

    Without Kenny Powers, life would suck dick. huge donkey ones that reek of **** Jody Hill, Danny McBride and Will Ferrell must do whatever it takes to keep this show on. I don' care if they have to **** the executives of HBO.

    This season was much, much better than season 1. It shows that a lot more planning and a much better story was written this time around. I just hope they can keep this up and come back for a third season.

  1. This portrait of a profane, low-down egomaniac--excuse me, he prefers "Christ figure"--continues to amaze. McBride's willingness to play depression, amorality, and selfishness for laughs is awesome.

    I tend to judge a show's worth on whether I'll come back for more; I've already watched next week's episode of "Eastbound and Down," and I'll definitely be watching to see where Kenny's Mexican journey takes him.

    It's not for everyone. Let's say that upfront. Eastbound & Down will either make you choke laughing, or wish that you could bleach the profanity from your brain.
