'Eastbound and Down' Season 2, Episode 2 Recap


What would you do with a second chance? Odds are, you'd do it differently. Kenny Powers, on the other hand, has made a living defying the odds. No matter how low Kenny sinks, he still holds onto the things that separate him from everyone else -- his swagger, his mullet, his rudimentary grasp of the English language, his complete disregard for anyone other than himself (or breasts), and his numerous venereal diseases -- despite those things causing his demise in the first place.


That kind of persistence makes us love him, or at least love that we're not him. Kenny Powers is good at a lot of things ... learning and maturing are not among them.


The thought of Stevie Janowski having sex is enough to make even the most virile teenager start campaigning for abstinence ... or at least throw up a little, so it was no surprise that 'Eastbound and Down' opened with whack-job Stevie having sex with a black hooker, in an attempt to track down his long-lost hero. Stevie's devotion to Kenny runs far too deep for him to simply disappear. The Kenny/Stevie dynamics really drove the first season, and there's nothing funnier than a loser following a different kind of loser into bitterness and shame.
