Tv Season Info

The third series of "Eastbound & Down" follows mulleted baseball player Kenny Powers as he is back in the states for another shot at major league glory. Playing in Myrtle Beach, Powers deals with the realities of growing older, taking on responsibility and separating his personal life from the game. Kenny's new teammates include clownish catcher Shane and up-and-coming Russian pitcher Ivan.

Critic Reviews for Eastbound & Down Season 3

Powers is the modern Man Baby archetype taken to its logical conclusion, one big live-wire bundle of raw nerve and poor impulse control and hedonistic desire.

It's a neat trick, casting this awful man as the perennial underdog, because it engenders just enough sympathy to get viewers to sort-of root for him while laughing uncontrollably at his shameful antics.

On second pass this season is much funnier, because you can relax into the jokes, and there's a lot of great funny one-liners, and great squirm-inducing bits of terrible taste and bad behavior.

Eastbound & Down is so outrageously funny and flashy that it can be easy to forget how fundamentally sad it is at its core.

Regardless of its shortcomings, Eastbound & Down can't be faulted for following through on its primary vision.

McBride celebrates the Southern-fried dirtball culture of flyover America like some Red State Diaries; it's a veritable HBO Hee-Haw.

Eastbound & Down holds together so well that it's worth looking past the ugly for the solid performances and the charcoal-black humor beneath.

Feb 19, 2012 | Full Review…

What I'd call extreme comedy, willing to risk alienating a mass audience in favor of a devoted cult.

    After a lessened (yet still rewarding) second season, Eastbound and Down came back stronger than ever for it's then-presumed final season!
