New Release: Eastbound & Down Season 2 DVD and Blu-ray

Eastbound & Down: Season 2The second season of HBO‘s irreverant comedy TV show Eastbound & Down arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on Aug. 2, 2011. And HBO and distributor Warner Home Video must have been sufficiently pleased about the response to the season 1 DVD, because it brought that season to Blu-ray also on Aug. 2.

Comedy actor Danny McBride, who we laughed with in Due Date, Pineapple Express and the currently in theaters Your Highness, created the television series with Ben Best (writer of Your Highness) and Jody Hill (writer/director of Observe and Report). The show has more comedy pedigree with executive producers Will Ferrell (The Other Guys) and Adam McKay (Step Brothers).

Eastbound & Down DVD boxEastbound & Down stars McBride as Kenny Powers, a burned-our major league ballplayer who in season 1, returns to his old middle school to teach phys ed and proves good at burning every bridge he crosses. In season 2, the mullett-wearing Powers tries to make a comeback as a ballplayer in a small Mexican town, including cockfights and more.

The DVD is priced at $29.98 and the Blu-ray at $39.98. Both include these special features:

  • audio commentary
  • deleted scenes
  • making-of featurette
  • and outtakes.

The season 1 Blu-ray also is priced at $39.98 and includes the same extras.

I haven’t seen this show yet, but it seems to deliver if you like McBride’s style of comedy. Have you seen it? What do you think?
