Though it was supposed to have ended last season, Danny McBride decided to take Eastbound & Down into extra innings. Here’s a look at what we can expect from Kenny Powers in the series’ final episodes. Machine guns, waterslides, really big sunglasses, strippers, and funeral-crashing (his own).

I’m a big fan of Eastbound & Down, and, for better or worse, I get paid to talk about television for a living. So when I tell you that this week’s episode of Eastbound & Down contains what might be the strangest ten minutes of television I’ve ever witnessed, please understand that I am not using hyperbole.

Will Ferrell returns as car dealer Ashley Schaeffer who, in Kenny’s absence, is forcing Stevie Janowski to toil at a Kia dealership. This doesn’t sit well with Kenny, who wants to enlist Stevie’s help in raising a kid. I can’t go into great detail about what transpires, but I can say that it involves cannons, transvestites, and a lot of confused Korean businessmen.

So do yourself a favor and skip the Oscars in favor of Eastbound & Down, because unless Billy Crystal smacks someone’s genitals with a spoon, the Oscars won’t compare. Watching Kenny over at Buzzer Beat would probably be even better, since you’d surely watch some of the other quality sports videos housed at that site. (Thanks for entertaining our quick, shameless plug.)

The new season of Eastbound & Down, premiering tonight on HBO, is the third and final chapter in the saga of Kenny Powers.

Luckily, you only have to wait a few hours to see the whole episode, tonight at at 10 PM EST/PST on HBO.

Kenny Powers and Eastbound & Down are back for thier third and final season this Sunday on HBO, which is great news! Not great news in the sense that the series is coming to a close, but great news in the sense that we’ll be able to enjoy the final chapter in the long battle for supremacy between tits and ass. Why the two can’t happily rule in unison I do not know. But perhaps this look at animated GIFs from the first two seasons will help us to understand just a little more.

Jason Sudeikis has found a new venue to use lewd terms in reference to vaginas. The Hall Pass and Horrible Bosses star will join the third and final season of HBO’s Eastbound & Down. Sudeikis will play Shane, a new friend to Danny McBride‘s egotistical former baseball star and father-to-be.

The comedy series has turned out some great comedy performances from Will Ferrell, Craig Robinson, Don Johnson, Adam Scott, Deep Roy, and Matthew McConaughey. I’m hoping to see Sudeiki break away from his current stints as Horndog Bestfriend Character #1, and this could be the perfect chance to do that. Also it’s going to be hilarious to see his square off with Stevie Janowski for Kenny’s affections. (Variety)

Full-Grown Man Kenny Powers Doesn’t Use Twitter http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/full-grown-man-kenny-powers-doesnt-use-twitter/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/full-grown-man-kenny-powers-doesnt-use-twitter/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 HBO, "Eastbound & Down," Kenny Powers, and Danny McBride would like you to know that Twitter's KFUCKINGP has nothing to do with them. For more than a year, a comedy writer from NYC has been posing as fictional washed-up baseball star Kenny Powers and delighting followers with his clever, very McBride-like tweets. He isn't McBride though, as the actor himself told Vulture: "Kenny Powers is a full-grown man, so he would never Twitter. But Kenny is also a man of the people. He doesn't care if the public feels the need to impersonate him. That just puts him up there with the big dogs like Santa and Elvis. Knowing that it's a very funny committed fan makes us proud." That's a burn for all you bloggers out there. You grown-ass men shouldn't share your thoughts, grievances, and lazy Sunday night plans with the world. Sure, Anonymous NYC Aspiring Comedy Writer found some success with it, but he sacrificed his masculinity in the process. Fortunately Screen Junkies has raw male power to spare, so we're always tweeting the sh*t out of sh*t on our account HERE!!!! "Eastbound & Down" returns to HBO September 26th, and it's Kenny Powers approved.
