Eastbound & Down: The Complete First Season DVD - Eastbound & Down stars former Major League pitcher Kenny Powers (Danny McBride), who is forced to teach gym class at the North Carolina middle school he once attended. Wherever he goes, Kenny wreaks havoc with his boorish behavior while plotting his triumphant return to the big leagues.
Eastbound & Down: The Complete Second Season DVD - Danny McBride's Kenny Powers, the man with the magnificent mullet, returns for a second round of his politically incorrect HBO series. When his Tampa plans fall through, the baseball player-turned-gym teacher spends the next seven episodes killing time in Mexico (the shoot takes place in Puerto Rico). After his sidekick, Aaron (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Deep Roy), gives him the boot, he decides to get back in the game, so he joins a local team just as his biggest fan, Stevie (Steve Little), arrives in order to serve as his assistant. Stevie also breaks the news that Kenny's ex-girlfriend is off the market.
Fortunately, Vida (Ana de la Reguera), a shapely nightclub singer, helps Kenny to forget his past, though she finds the team owner (Michael Peña) equally enticing. Unfortunately, Kenny's bad attitude threatens his relationship, his job, and even his friendship with the puppy dog-like Stevie. Just when his antics can't get more tiresome, Kenny reconnects with a long-lost relative (Don Johnson with scraggly extensions), who inspires him to stop running from his problems and face them head on. Then, when he makes peace with a former enemy (Adam Scott) and a major-league scout (Matthew McConaughey), it appears as if his fortunes are about to turn.
As with the first season, producers Jody Hill and David Gordon Green handle directorial duties and play to writer-creator McBride's strengths, but the coke-snorting egotist won't be to all tastes. Like the fictional Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm--or real-life pitcher John Rocker--he's an equal-opportunity offender, but in a cruder context. And set to a hipper soundtrack, something that also distinguishes the feature-film work of Hill and Green. Oscar nominee John Hawkes (Winter's Bone), who plays Kenny's level-headed brother, makes a repeat appearance for the surprisingly sentimental finale.
Eastbound & Down: The Complete Third Season DVD - HBO premieres eight new episodes of the half-hour comedy series about a deluded, burned-out, former major-league pitcher named Kenny powers, who after fleeing his hometown in North Carolina spent a soul-searching season in Mexico as “La Flama Blanca” - and ended up returning to the States as a changed man. Or is he? Picking up a year after Season 2 ends, the still-audacious Kenny brings his “f*#ked up behavior” to Myrtle Beach, SC - a tourist destination filled with firework stores, mini-golf and underage boozing - and somehow resurrects his baseball career as the closer for the minor-league Myrtle Beach Mermen.
