Default Eastbound & Down

Kenny Powers is backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!

Over a year off, and this show has lost nothing. The opener was written by the creators and it hit a homerun for me. It's so comedy.

All the pieces were there for a great season dos opener, but it just fell short for me. I mean, really, how could you go wrong:

-Kenny working as a professional cockfighter, with a vicious mexican midget sidekick
-Kenny roaming through the streets at night with his posse on mopeds.
-Kenny trying to sell zebra rides on a painted donkey
-Kenny getting robbed by his former mexican midget sidekick.

my expectations were extremely high for season dos, and I'm still looking forward to the next 6 episodes, but as Kenny would say "lower your expectations, raise your average."

I liked this season opener. It wasn't hilarious but it was entertaining enough. Maybe they should have called this "South Bound and Out"!

I finally caught this show and I love it. He's from where I'm from so it was also nice to get a few references to the area in. As soon as that one guy in the pilot said something about working for "Widespread" I knew exactly what band he was talking about - Widespread Panic, the quintessential North Carolina local band. Lots of lovely inside jokes about home for me.

Kenny's speech at the end was epic.

Dude, WP is from Athens, Georgia.

Off topic, it sucks that they're the ones who basically started Bonnaroo but never get the credit for it in the press anymore. They're a great live act and most people I know that have gone to Bonnaroo every year since it started (it's only an hour and a half north from here) go only when they can see WP.

Okay, back to Kenny Powers...

They're always in GA. They played in GA (Athens, Atlanta, Decatur, etc) all the time and also B'ham and Huntsville, AL.

They're just on the road constantly (or, used to be a lot more in the late 90s) and hit pretty much every place from AL to NC.

But, yeah, they played down here mostly.
