Farewell Kenny Powers!

Farewell Kenny Powers!

Well, it’s all over folks, Kenny Powers is finished and what a journey it has been. The final episode even had me choke up a bit at the end, as he confidently places the baseball down on the table and walks out of the room, leaving his finished screenplay and his fame behind him. It was a jam packed episode and Kenny managed to right all of his wrong doings. He apologised to April and asked her to wait a week until she made up mind, finally about whether or not to divorce him and he apologised to his crew for being an asshole during the Christmas Special of Sports Sesh. However, there’s a new ego on the scene, the lispy, arrogant,...

Eastbound and Down Season 4, Episodes 6 & 7

Oh Kenny, Kenny Kenny Kenny. What is going on?! Following on episode five, where Kenny didn’t turn up to the therapy session with April because he had a much more important date with a jet pack, April calls quits on their marriage. Kenny attempts to salvage something with a ‘Hey April, look how great your life is’ party which doesn’t go down well as its just another excuse for Kenny to show off how much money he has. He ultimately conquers Guy Young as while off stage Guy slams his audience, calling them names and generally being quite racist while his microphone was on resulting in an onslaught of boo-ing and yelling when he makes...

Eastbound and Down Season 4, Episode 5

Eastbound and Down Season 4, Episode 5

So I’m reaching that point where I am curious as to where Kenny’s story is going, seeing there are only three episodes left until the ultimate end of Eastbound and Down I am wondering when the story will stop developing and start coming to a close. Episode five starts with Kenny reigning as the King of his Castle, hosting an extravagant pool party complete with security guards. Kenny is rich, we get that. He is literally throwing money around, buying all the luxuries he has been longing to buy for years. Good for him right? He’s earned it, he’s been through some shit and now he is a valued member of the Sports Sesh panel, with his...

Eastbound and Down Season 4, Episode 4

After last week’s bizarre excursion to the water park, I was hoping this week would have a bit more focus and direction. I wasn’t particularly keen on the events that occurred that night, I didn’t like the characters of Jessie and Jason, I didn’t like the back and forth exchanges between Kenny and Jessie and to be honest, it wasn’t very funny, it was kind of boring and I was glad when it was over. The latest chapter sees Kenny backing away from the self destruct button and revelling in his new found fame and glory as a recurring member of the Sports Sesh team. However, with the events of the waterpark echoing in his mind, he needs...

Eastbound and Down S4 Episode 3

Eastbound and Down S4 Episode 3

The end of episode two saw Kenny riding high on the waves of applause from his triumph on Sports Sesh. Guy Young offered Kenny a regular spot on the show and episode three begins as he rejoices with April and Stevie on the way back to the car. The tone of episode three shifts quite dramatically as Kenny readjusts to his second chance at fame. Stevie pathetically continues to whinge about his small dick not being able to get hard (a recurring joke that is beginning to try my patience) so Kenny decides to treat his family, Stevie’s family and the family of their boring friends to a weekend at a waterpark, telling them that a perk of his job...

Eastbound and Down: Season 4, Episode 2

Eastbound and Down: Season 4, Episode 2

Episode 2 of season 4 has been my absolute favorite since season one and it all boils down to one man. Stevie Janowski. At the end of episode one, we saw Kenny triumphantly neck copious amounts of drugs and declare his return to baseball. Thank God, the boring slave to the wage Kenny Powers is now well and truly deceased. Episode 2 opens with Stevie doing a food shop with his four Mexican children who are horrendously out of control and literally every parent’s worst nightmare. He argues with them, they tell him to fuck off while knocking over cans and throwing bags of crisps all over the store. Kenny and Stevie’s relationship appears...

Welcome Back, Kenny! Season 4, Ep. 1 Review

Welcome Back, Kenny! Season 4, Ep. 1 Review

After a very explosive finale to season three, Kenny Powers slowly rolled back onto our screens suited and booted driving a very non-descript Camry. A few years have passed since we last saw our hero and in that time, he’s ditched the drugs, the baseball and the bleach blonde locks and traded it all in for a family. The episode begins with a quick recap, where Kenny crashes his own funeral, gets punched in the face by Dustin (John Hawkes), goes to jail for a bit, comes out, marries April (Katy Mixon) and they have their second child, a girl. The ‘new’ Kenny works for a car rental company and April is pursuing her real estate career...

EASTBOUND AND DOWN’S Awesome Posters & Trailer

Here is a poster set that might warrant a chuckle from you. Take a gander of the EASTBOUND AND DOWN posters sent our way from BLT Communication LLC, a PR firm out of Hollywood. The first appears to be the more mainstream poster for the upcoming fourth and final season. The other three posters offer a stylized image of Kenny Powers’ grizzled face and an awesome catchphrase each. Which one do you like? I like the last one myself.   Don’t forget EASTBOUND AND DOWN premieres 09.29.13 at 10:00pm ET. Now we had a short tease or two but here is the Season Four trailer at 1:01. Is it getting hard...

A EASTBOUND AND DOWN Ramps Up the Star Power with Lindsay Lohan!

HBOWatch thought you’d like to know that everyone’s favorite actress of the moment Lindsay Lohan will grace us with a guest stint on the fourth and   final season of EASTBOUND AND DOWN. E! Online reported that Miss Lohan will take on the role of – “the daughter of a main character on the show, and would appear as a bride in a wedding scene that takes place in the future.” Just when she will show up and how well she will do in this riotous comedy is anybody’s guess. However, did you catch the one clue from the blub above as to what may possibly play out before the show’s end? The acclaimed actress will appear in...

Kenny Powers Rises from the Ashes Like a Motherfu&@ing Pheonix  – Updated

  Update: Just wanted to add yet another little video clip to the mix. This one is called Hog Tease.     Just last year we found ourselves regretfully reporting on what we thought was the series finale of Eastbound and Down.  But some time ago HBO announced that Kenny Powers would return for a fourth, new, encore season of the irreverent comedy series in 2014.  He’s coming back, bitches! Now, HBO is teasing the new series with a pair of trailers.  The first is a retrospective of season three with mostly scenes from that installment: And the newest trailer, released this weekend shows Kenny Powers ON FIRE rising from...

He has nothing in common with Kenny and lacks even a basic sense of...

What’s Next for Kenny Fucking Powers?

What’s Next for Kenny Fucking Powers?

Kenny Powers? You’re fucking IN. Kenny Powers burst into our lives back in 2009 with a dramatic, dark, poetic, ridiculous and hilarious first season of Eastbound and Down.  Now, 4 years later, season four is coming and I’m expecting great things, really great things. Season one introduced us to the washed out baseball stars new life in Shelby, home of his big bosomed childhood sweetheart April, her loveable yet pathetic fiancé Terrence Cutler, the creepy and obsessive Stevie and the majestic, white haired car salesman Ashley Shaeffer.  The season paved the way for further greatness with such moments as Kenny throwing up at a high...
