The Man with the laser rocket arm
14 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

This one of the funniest shows that i have seen in a long time. Kenny Powers is what your everyday sports fan wishes he could be, but on steroids...he is 100x crueler than your Apollo Creeds or your Kelly Robinson. I can not say enough about the characters, and how their lives are wrapped and looped around Kenny Mother-Loving Powers. It is a gritty and has a no holds barred style of comedy. I enjoyed every episode. So will you

I Love this show.

I think that Danny McBride and his team of writers are geniuses. I truly do. I can not wait until season two.

a Must see...soon to be a cult classic.
