Wow. Here's something you don't find everyday - truly great television. I've just finished watching this series on FX Channel and I'm desperate for Season 2 (which is apparently going ahead, and I hear at 13 episodes rather than the 6 of this first season, but don't quote me on that.)
It was advertised on Sky as being "The new comedy by Will Ferrell" but I don't see that its BY Will Ferrell at all. He appears in two episodes and co-produces it, but the real star is Danny McBride, and he is the reason why I watched this. I've been a fan of his since seeing him in David Gordon Green's excellent "All the Real Girls". I always was unsure whether McBride was acting or just being himself, which is, I suppose, the mark of a great actor. I didn't realise that this show was directed (the first 3 episodes anyway) by David Gordon Green too.
The thing is, this is a very coarse, offensive show. There are hundreds of 'f' words, nudity and drug-taking. Its easy to dismiss this as a cheap laugh, until you watch two or three episodes. This is a very well-written story about love, life and, in particular, the age at which a man realises he just isn't what he used to be anymore but he isn't yet ready to accept it.
I found myself really caring about a loudmouth, obnoxious, mulletted redneck and by the final episode I was actually shouting advice at the screen.
That's not to say that this isn't outrageously funny, because it will make you laugh out loud once you have stopped cringing at the political incorrectness of Kenny Powers. The supporting cast are brilliant too; witness the transformation of Stevie.
In summary, please don't miss this show, and certainly don't just watch one or two episodes and turn off in disgust. Watch the whole thing and feel the love. Watch it and you'll most certainly be IN.

Eastbound is more of a movie than TV season. Watching the DVD boxset emphasises this as you'll find yourself playing episodes back to back to back...

Just epic comedy genius that experiments on just how bad that it can make an individual act. Kenny Powers is one obnoxious guy and....you've gotta love him for it.
Follow Kenny on his journey from the heights of the World Series as he falls from grace out his own doing.

It is Will Ferrell-esque comedy so if that's not your thing maybe give it a miss but otherwise, highly recommended fresh HBO humour. Can't wait for season 2 which is rumoured to be in production.

This is absolutely one of the funniest TV shows ever made!! Possibly thee best!! Danny McBride is an awesome actor and a very, very funny man, he plays the part of Kenny powers with so much passion and makes him so believable, the comedy is very on the ball with great random gags and mostly vulgar humour thats always laugh out loud from start to finish, if you love great comedy then you must see this!! Offensive to some but pure genius none the less!! Comedy gold!!

One of the funniest sitcoms of the last decade, 'Eastbound and Down' focuses on Kenny Powers (Danny McBride), a loudmouthed, uncouth, politically incorrect, and yet oddly likeable, ex-baseball pitcher. Having wasted his talent in the Majors, through a diet of booze, drugs, and hilariously bad media appearances, Powers returns to teach gym at the school he attended in North Carolina, and moves back in with his overworked brother Dusty, and his strongly-religious wife. Admidst attempts to get back together with his hometown girlfriend April, a bizarre feud with local car salesman Ashley Schaeffer (Will Ferrell) and his dreams of returning to the big-leagues; there's enough hilarious antics in these six episodes to make 'Eastbound and Down' a hugely amusing, and genuinely interesting watch. Even most of the bit-part characters, like nerd, turned bad-boy teacher Stevie, who sets himself up as Powers 'assistant', have enough about them to really flesh out the show; despite its small number of episodes.

Despite its being high on genuine laugh-out-loud moments, and managing to be at times honest and heartfelt, without being mawkish or preachy, 'Eastbound and Down' does have its flaws. April's fiancee is quite a likeable character, meaning that it's hard at times to want Kenny to win her back. Will Ferrel's Ashley Schaeffer feels too much like just a cameo in the show; and whilst funny, it does take away from the plotting of the actual show, and the Schaeffer episodes feel like a distraction as much as anything else; and occasionally the show resorts to obvious gags, when most of the quality of it suggests it's better than that. Still, this is an inventive, and frankly hilarious show, and for those who enjoy their sitcoms fast, furious, fairly offensive, and even with its more intelligent moments; this is the show for you.

This is by far the best example of comedy you will see in a very long time. Kenny Powers is up there with the all time greats of comedy, this show is so quotable, every episode has gems that should be plastered on T-shirts and bumpers everywhere. Danny McBride will be the next big thing, I recommend you also see 'Foot Fist Way' another great performance but a little rough. Please, please, please see this series.
