I found it to be a show you need to watch with a group of people to laugh. By myself and sober I just found it to be pretty stupid.

I don't think it's that funny. It seems like it could make for a funny hour and a half movie since there have been some funny parts but I don't see how they are going to get multiple seasons out of the characters.

I tend to agree with you. It seems like it could be really funny but a lot of it just seems too dumbed down. I think most of that is because the characters are pretty shallow. Except for the cussing, they almost seem like they could be pulled from one of those disney channel shows for teenagers- especially the clueless principle.

By the way, the funniest thing about this show is how Danny McBride cannot throw a baseball to save his life.

He has the worst mechanics of any "Hollywood pitcher" I've ever seen. It's laughable. His father should be castrated for failing to teach his son to not throw like a woman.

Kenny Powers supposedly can hit 100. McBride probably can't throw a ball 50 miles an hour.

I didn't realize until a few days ago that this is only a 6 episode run. I guess they are talking about a second season but there will be a definitive ending to this one.

Didn't realize that either, assumed it was 12.

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
