  • Eastbound and Down

    Has anyone else seen this show? It just started and is on HBO Sunday nights. It's about a major league relief pitcher whose career completely falls apart and is forced to take a job as a middle school gym teacher. The main character is pretty vulgar, but if you're into that, its not a bad show.

    The main character's baseball career definitely seems to be based on that of John Rocker. A hillbilly who was always surrounded with controversy and whose career completely fell apart after leaving Atlanta. In the opening scenes he even has some very "Rocker-esque" things to say about the city of New York.

      Honestly, I thought it might have been the worst original show HBO has ever produced. Maybe I was suffering a letdown from not really liking the episode of Flight of the Conchords that was on before it, but I doubt I'll watch it regularly.

      Why did the show takes its name from the theme to Smokey and the Bandit?

              The show's over now, Season One was six episodes and out. I kinda hope they leave it as it is and don't try for a second season, I kinda like the way it ended.

                Production would be underway if a return was in the works. I guess with all these shorter seasons (compared to netwrok and even basic cable shows) HBO can try to get a few different shows out per year. Ratings are down overall, ever since The Sopranos went off.

                      Great Show. Very Funny. Lots of Boobs and Swearing, definitely my cup of tea.

                        A lot of swearing, at least.

                          ...have you not gotten to the Aprils beautiful breasts Episode?

                          I love this show, and I love the character. I just wonder if a) that mullet is real b) he had it before the show c) if he's been keeping it since filming ended.

                            He played the demolitions guy in Tropic Thunder. I don't remember if he had it then or not.

                            Was that the BBQ episode?

                            I don't know, it just seems a letdown compared to other HBO shows. Without the profanity, and the partial nudity, it would probably be best for the CW network.
