This show is fucking amazing. Deserved a lot more recognition and credit than it did. Also I'm glad they ended it with a solid wrap up and didn't milk the show just to make money like most shows nowadays. Danny McBride is brilliant, Walton Goggins is FUCKING brillliant.

I don't give a FUCK about these ducks!!

It looks **SO** promising! Danny McBride definitely needs a solid backdrop and good people to bounce off of to excel. I really hope Walton Goggins is the guy that sparks that in him. I've been needing something a little like _Eastbound & Down_... anything up until it went off the rails.

This is one of the shows that you will either love or hate. I say that because you also likely love or hate Danny McBride's humor. He's bold, arrogant, and offensive, but man do I love it. The show itself isn't incredible or an all time favorite, but it was one hell of a time. After two short, sweet, and consistent seasons, it is a shame it ended so soon. While I could go for much more of this show, it is beneficial for itself that it didn't stick around so long that the jokes got repetitive. Regardless, if you like Danny McBride's humor, you should check this show out. It is ten hours of your time that you will enjoy thoroughly throughout. Average Season Review: 8.5/10 Recommendation: At Least Give it a Whirl (for Arrogant/Offensive Comedy Fans)

a satisfying two seasons and awesome finale!
