Eastbound & Down on HBO

Postby Dan Lambskin » Tue Feb 24, 2009 11:10 am

anybody else seen this show? Danny McBride as a broke has-been relief pitcher Kenny Powers who has to move back to his hometown and thinks he's still famous...it's hilarious

Isn't "Eastbound and down" a line from the theme song from Smokey and the Bandit?

Really enjoyed the first episode. It was so much funnier than I expected it to be. Second episode had it's moments but I didn't like it as much and Will Ferrel was annoying as the BMW salesman. Will definitely continue watching it.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
