Blu-ray Review: Eastbound & Down Season 2

20 October 2011 10:17 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Eastbound & Down is a relatively small venture for HBO, but I’m assuming that since you’re reading a review of season two that you’ve heard of it. It’s rather fresh ground for HBO to be treading, a sports-themed ‘dramedy’ (that’s drama/comedy), but despite the title’s air of the high-brow, it treats its audience to as much foul-mouthed, booze and sex soaked imagery as you’d care to shake a semi-erect stick at. Written by and starring the potty-mouthed Danny McBride (Pineapple Express) and co-written and directed by Observe & Report helmer Jody Hill (straight out of the Judd Apatow school of comedy), you should know going in that Eastbound & Down is not for the easily offended- but usually neither is any T.V that’s worth watching.

Season two picks up as you’d expect after the events at the end »

Blu-Ray, DVD Review: ‘Eastbound & Down,’ ‘Tracy Morgan: Black and Blue’

9 August 2011 12:52 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – HBO brought two of their most outgoing personalities to Blu-ray and DVD last week with the releases of “Eastbound & Down: The Complete Second Season” and “Tracy Morgan: Black and Blue.” Both are a step down from the best that these men have offered the comedy world but they also feature enough quality laughs for fans of Danny McBride and the controversial star of “30 Rock.”

Blu-Ray Rating: 3.5/5.0

The first season of HBO’s “Eastbound & Down” was a thing of beauty. Co-created by the great David Gordon Green (“Pineapple Express”), Jody Hill (“Observe and Report”), and star Danny McBride (“Your Highness”), it was a fearlessly raunchy piece of work in a medium so often defined by trying to appeal to the lowest common denominator. The second season was a bit of a step down from the hysterical first chapter but it eventually built to a pretty impressive finale and HBO does »
