HBO’s hit comedy Eastbound & Down returns this Sunday, September 29 at 10 PM ET in case I haven’t mentioned it each night this week, and I spent a little time today traveling back in time on some websites and the Twitters and Tumblrs to see what people think about the existence of this fourth season. After all, we were all under the impression that the third season was it, and that Kenny Powers had faked his own death so he could live a quiet life with April and Toby. And a surprising number of people were pretty upset that Danny McBride and Co. would roll the dice and push their luck with another season of Eastbound & Down.
My response to any concerns or complaints that fans of the show may have about this fourth season is simple – we get more Kenny Powers. Does it really matter if the series ends with KP faking his own death or riding his jet ski off into the sunset? (I don’t know if that’s the actual ending, but that’s how I picture it.) No, because we still have eight more episodes of one of TV’s all-time most hilarious characters left, when just a few months ago we thought we had none.
Just how much do people love Kenny Powers? I thought we’d explore that with this little gallery of some awesome Eastbound & Down fan art that I dug up. Come for the baseball cards, stay for the chest tattoo. Seriously.
