YMMV / Eastbound & Down

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: As many critics note, the story of a Jaded Washout Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist with an out-of-control ego would always be something of a tough sell for a mainstream audience. Regardless, the show garnered a cult following.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: In the very first episode, Kenny comes home from a night of doing cocaine and drinking and is an intoxicated wreck. He stumbles and thrashes around his room, which is directly across the hall from his nephew. The nephew closes his eyes for a moment and opens them to find Kenny standing perfectly still in the doorway giving him an intense Kubrick Stare.
    • The snake Stevie finds in Kenny's fridge in "Chapter 8".
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: So many...
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The season 3 finale: Kenny finally makes it to the major leagues but quits (and unnecessarily fakes his death) to be with April and Toby.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "The Storm Is Passing Over" in "Chapter 12".
  • Squick: Reg Mackworthy's eye and Tracy, Kenny's fuck buddy.
    Tracy: My pussy itches... (She proceeds to take a fork and... "pets the cat.")
    • Also, Kenny contemplating on his life fully naked in a middle school boys' locker room. Could also be considered Crowning Moment of Funny.
  • Wangst: April during Season 4.
