Creator Jody Hill ("Observe & Report") never intended for "Eastbound & Down" to be anything more than a miniseries.

By continuing the story of Kenny f---ing Powers (Danny McBride), we get more of a great comedy revolving around the most deplorable character ever.

Abandoning his life in North Carolina, Kenny runs to Mexico to wallow in self-pity over the likely end of his major league pitching career. He resorts to typical Kenny behavior - cockfighting, drinking, prostitutes - and it's hysterical.

The second episode is even better, with the return of the incomparable Stevie Janowski (Steve Little) and his reunion with Kenny.
