    The jokes take of on all sorts of unexpected trajectories--foul balls that score. [12 Mar 2012, p.45]

    Danny McBride's Kenny Powers is back for a wild third season.

    McBride celebrates the Southern-fried dirtball culture of flyover America like some "Red State Diaries"; it's a veritable HBO "Hee-Haw."

    Eastbound & Down holds together so well that it's worth looking past the ugly for the solid performances and the charcoal-black humor beneath, particularly in the final episodes, which delve into Powers's family history.

    If last season was The Empire Strikes Back, though, season three is slightly more Revenge of the Sith than Return of the Jedi.

    Best comedy show out there right now besides South Park. Kenny Powers is the greatest prick of all time and talks like a lot of blue collar Dads out there. Perfect mix of sports and comedy, it your sensitive or uptight than this show isnt for you. Heck even if you are this will show you to loosen up alittle and make fun of things more. Now with Jason Sedakis as Kenny's right hand man, it took this show to another level along with bringing back season 1 love interest, April. Kenny is back and better than ever just wish it was an hour long show not half. Expand

    Without a doubt the best season of Eastbound Down. If you've enjoyed the other seasons your in for a treat with this one. It will keep you laughing, and the constant twists, turns, and returning as well as characters will keep you watching and on your toes. They went above and beyond with this season and it shows.

    We're welcomed back to the adventures of Kenny Powers with a montage of all his previous exploits which don't dissapoint and conclude with a rather amusing scene of Kenny taking to the water in his new home already making trouble for himself from the get go.

    The director impresses us with a casual street race and the flashing of a few breasts after a plethora of racism and dick jokes that continue to arise through the scenes that follow, those most memorable being Kenny purchasing his newborn child a Playstation 3 and further trying to communicate with the child as the episode progresses though our eyes are mostly drawn to the optimal amounts of cleavage which remain on display.

    The laughs continue leaving no trace of stale activity towards the end of the episode between the alcohol consumption and rowdy dispute sandwiched between a memorable track by ESG which can be listened to here. We're left wanting more as it concludes and surprisingly nothing bad to say about Power's comeback.

    This was easily the best season of Eastbound and Down. Kenny's view on life is hilarious and there is never a dull moment. His interaction with his teammates is priceless. Expand
