Put simply, Kenny Powers is great. He's one of the strongest comedic characters I've seen on television since Homer Simpson.
I regret thinking that it was pointless to bring the show back after the seeming finality of its third season, because the evolution of media star Kenny was the best thing the show had done.
Though I liked the way the third season of Eastbound and Down ended, I'm glad HBO gave the show another stab at its series finale.
Even when the show is funny and outrageous...there are things going on under the surface that are very real and very difficult, and that's what continues to make Eastbound and Down such an impressive surprise each week.
In its way, over the years, behind all the crude turns and vulgar behavior, had a sweetness to it, an earnest, simple-minded optimism that made it strangely akin to that other slightly twisted HBO comedy on modern struggle and advancement, "Enlightened.
Eastbound, rightly, treats the very idea of dude-ish self-pity with the outright mockery it deserves.
No recent television show has toggled so violently between brilliant and execrable as Eastbound, which at its heart is about pieties and their uselessness.
Get ready, because Eastbound & Down is back for one last run and it looks like a very different show.
McBride and Hill didn't bring Kenny back just to squeeze a few more cheap laughs out of him. There are cheap laughs, of course, but a downbeat mood of disillusion and frustration permeates.
"Chapter 22" might strip too much self-respect away from Kenny, but it leads to a thrilling climax when his true nature returns, and sets up an exciting new season while also wrapping up the loose ends of season three.
