Critic Reviews of "Eastbound And Down - Season 1"Boston GlobeFebruary 15, 2009
The obnoxiousness is just a shortcut to a headache.IGN MoviesFebruary 15, 2009
The comedy - and, oh, there is much of it - comes less from sight gags or clever one-liners as it does from the sheer absurdity of what transpires and the ever-increasing ability for Powers to sink lower and fail more grandly from episode to episode.Pittsburgh Post-GazetteFebruary 15, 2009
A far cry from the cerebral comedy currently en vogue on shows like The Office and 30 Rock, but that doesn't mean Eastbound can't do sly humor that falls left of center.AV ClubFebruary 15, 2009
I don't know bout y'all but I'm hooked.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 15, 2009
It seems like a middling Fox series with a monotonous glut of obscenities and some nudity tossed in to make it pay-cable worthy.VarietyFebruary 15, 2009
it's a tired premise - a more profane version of the kind of low-swinging sitcom that could easily have wound up on TBS.New York TimesFebruary 15, 2009
Eastbound & Down feels like a margarine, not butter, version of Talladega Nights.TIME MagazineFebruary 15, 2009
Eastbound & Down is a funny show if you don't expect too much.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 15, 2009
I am not ready to write it off: I will give it the benefit of its arc.Chicago TribuneFebruary 15, 2009
I can't escape the feeling that it might have worked best as the first third of a comedic washed-up-athlete film.
