As a rising baseball star, Kenny Powers had it all: money, fame, obsessed fans. But he threw it all away in a haze of hard-living and complacency. Only problem is: Kenny doesn't know he ever lost it. HBO presents Season 1 of this delightfully subversive comedy series starring Danny McBride as the former pitcher who finds himself out of baseball and reduced to teaching Phys Ed at the North Carolina school he once attended. Wreaking havoc both at school and at the home of his brother Dustin (John Hawkes) where he crashes, the loutish, foul-mouthed Kenny plots his return to the majors . . . while trying to win back his former high-school squeeze April (Katy Mixon), now a teacher engaged to principal Terrence Cutler (Andrew Daly).

Awesome. I'm so glad iTunes got this show. It's funny, in a watch your whole life go down the toilet kinda way. Every decision Kenny makes turns out to be the wrong one with some really big laughes on the way. The supporting cast is great. If you're having a bad day watch an episode of this and this will put things in perspective.
Never have I enjoyed a TV series more. EastBound and Down is out-of-this world funny. Not for the faint of heart. The show description does not do the show justice. One episode and you are hooked!
Some of the best television I've seen in years!
