From Amazon.co.uk

Danny McBride's Kenny Powers, the man with the magnificent mullet, returns for a second round of his politically incorrect HBO series. When his Tampa plans fall through, the baseball player-turned-gym teacher spends the next seven episodes killing time in Mexico (the shoot takes place in Puerto Rico). After his sidekick, Aaron (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Deep Roy), gives him the boot, he decides to get back in the game, so he joins a local team just as his biggest fan, Stevie (Steve Little), arrives in order to serve as his assistant. Stevie also breaks the news that Kenny's ex-girlfriend is off the market.

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

Kenny Powers has run off to Mexico giving him the opportunity to make many unbelievable racial jokes. I shudder to think what a Mexican would make of this show but so long as you keep a sense of perspective it is pretty funny.

Most of the show is a sort of verbal slapstick with the acting being deliberately melodramatic. The Kenny Powers character can surely never be beaten for outrageous behaviour. He has simply no concept of how ridiculous he is or how self-absorbed he's being. The whole world revolves around Kenny and owes him everything because of his amazing talent. A small child in other words.

It is mostly mildly amusing with a few good belly-laughs which for me mainly centred around a fabulously foul-mouthed but stature-challenged amateur gangster who is always threatening people with serious bodily harm whilst brandishing a very small penknife.

Such is the character of Kenny Powers that it takes just 10 seconds from when you first meet him to decide whether you like him or not. I happen to fall into the 'like' category for reasons that probably make me a very bad person. Season 2 kicks off a few months after the events of Season 1, with Kenny now hiding out in Mexico having stolen Steve's identity and making a living as a cock fighter.

It plays very much to the same formula as the first season, in that Kenny pretty much charges his way through each event life throws at him thinking he is the superior being but it's still very compelling to watch and still very very funny. It's definitely as strong as the first season and you may actually sympathise with Kenny more in this season, just be prepared to laugh at things you shouldn't be laughing at.

Having totally messed up his life in Shelby, ex-baseball pitcher Kenny Powers has fled to Mexico. Here he ekes out an existence raising fighting chickens, until he is recognised by the coach of the local struggling baseball team and drawn back into the game. At the same time, he is on a personal quest to track down the enigmatic 'Eduardo Sanchez' and to put his life back together, with the help of his old sidekick Stevie.

For its second season, Eastbound and Down abandons most of the previously-established cast and setting and heads south of the border. Here it's business as usual, as Powers attempts to get himself back to fame and glory but constantly sabotages his prospects with his crass humour, narcissism and total lack of concern for other human beings.

The first season of Eastbound was a success due to the premise and many of the individual gags and ideas being quite funny, with some genuinely solid character development taking place under the avalanche of fairly low-brow humour. The second season at first looks like it's going to continue this trend, with the show's embracing of a new setting (and culture) being a fairly brave move. It would have been easier to have stayed in Shelby and simply churned out six more episodes of the same. However, by a few episodes into this second season, it does feel like the move to Mexico was pointless. The show doesn't make much of its setting (beyond a few lazy gags, though nothing too offensive; HBO has a lot of Mexican viewers) and the structure of the second season is pretty much a retread of the first.

Once again, Kenny is responsible for many of his own problems but, having apparently learned nothing from the events of the first season, enjoys much less of the viewer's sympathy this time around.

Kenny Powers rides to new heights.

This was a beautiful season, different to season 1 but wonderful in its own right. Despite the language barrier Kenny manage to offend and showboat in a truly crass way and meet a whole load of hysterical new characters, and it seemed like the writers just hit every note perfectly. On the way Kenny learns a few lessons in humility and remorse and Stevey learns to be a man. I almost fell off my sofa laughing at every episode. The season ended beautifully with a wonderful song by Kurt Vile.

The 1st series was awesome and this one is even better. Typically crude (not one for the children), I laughed so much in every episode. Recommended to me by a friend with similar tastes, he was not wrong!

Eastboud And Down is bought to you by the overlords of tv HBO,this second series is really enjoyable i would say better then the first.Kenny Powers was a former major league baseball star who lost everything in a midst of drugs,rampant egomania and a blown fortune.In this series Powers has run off t mexico where he is kept busy by fighting chickens,recording another of his "self help" books and hanging round with a vicious midget.Kenny Powers is kinda like David Brent on steroids selfish,rude,deluded grossly obnoxious...yet oddly you find yourself beginning to love the character in all his flaws.This is down to a pitch perfect performance from Danny Mcbridge who captures every cringeing momment effortlessly.This is real high production,glossy american comedy with perhaps the greatest soundtrack i have heard on any show.I have always been a fan of the musical segments.The supporting cast are all great,in particular Steve....you gotta love Steve!Fans of the first series will love this.I would have to say it is a rather male show,packed with testosterone,gorgeous chicks and lots of toilet humour.This is a great pizza and beer show.Though i do not drink or eat pizza,i opt for a nice cup of tea and a bourbon biscuit.In what are rather depressing times of late this is a great comedy to cheer you up.I only hope we see more of Kenny.....
