    Default East Bound & Down

    Anybody catch this new show after Flight Of The Conchords? I think it could go either way, but it definitely has some potential.

    It's a little too close to the typical Will Ferrell "I'm an idiot, but I think I'm great" movie formula (Ferrell is a producer), but it's FAR more mean spirited and "edgy". Recommended for fans of "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia." I don't know why we don't see more black comedy on TV.

    I thought the first show would be better, but I think it does have a lot of potential. I think they just had to spend a lot of time giving background and whatnot. It's a show I'll definitely make sure to catch once a week.

    It has potential, Danny McBride is pretty funny. The first episode had several funny parts, but overall I thought the writing was pretty weak. It never progressed much beyond, I"m gonna cuss a lot, and yell while I'm doing it!!" I'll watch it a few more times though, I did laugh enough to give it a few more chances.

    I thought last night's show was pretty funny. Taking ecstasy and then going to the school dance was awesome.

    I haven't seen much of this show but it doesn't fit well after "FotC". I'd much rather watch some more Conchords (which is what I usually do)

    Throwing up at the school dance was pretty awesome.

    The ending was a little gay.

    Funny right after funny works for me. I'd rather have some variety. What WOULD fit after FotC in your opinion?

    I think up until last week, they were rerunning Big Love right after. I like Big Love, but I'd rather see a comedy there. (I record Big Love and watch it later in the week.)

    Damn, remember that awful Arliss show that was on for years...always came on right after something good.

    it is a funny premise, and McBride is a funny guy, but seriously, there is nothing about the writing of the show that makes me think it will stick around very long at all...

    on another note, I really wish they wouldn't show him throwing a baseball so closely...I know it's a comedy, but watching him try to pitch, he looks absolutely retarded

    That's kind of the point.

    Ep #3 veered a little bit too sentimental (I actually said "awwww" at the end when the bat was unwrapped), but still, I love watching Kenny turning the gay retarded music teacher to the dark side.

    Also, loved the toilet seat..."Pitch one in like Kenny Powers".

    Well, they should do it more often, because mostly they just take 5 minutes and crank out complete shit on TV.

    does anyone have a clue what the name of that bluesy song and who sings it on epsiode three when KP pops his tape in, while he is in the garage?
