Eastbound & Down turns 10: Danny McBride's HBO comedy was the perfect show at the peek of the Great Recession
"Eastbound & Down, the obnoxiously funny HBO comedy about washed-up baseball player Kenny Powers, debuted on Feb. 15, 2009," says Liam Matthews. "And while it's not quite as widely beloved or influential as other 2009 debuts like Parks and Recreation, Community or Modern Family, it's the one that best captures the bleak energy of that weird year — and now feels more timely than ever, for better and worse."
