Critic Consensus: Eastbound & Down's fourth season is more grounded in reality -- if that can even be possible -- as we say goodbye to an obnoxious anti-hero that somehow managed to grow on us.

News & Interviews for Eastbound & Down: Season 4
I regret thinking that it was pointless to bring the show back after the seeming finality of its third season, because the evolution of media star Kenny was the best thing the show had done.
Eastbound, rightly, treats the very idea of dude-ish self-pity with the outright mockery it deserves.
Eastbound & Down gave closure to four seasons of what could possibly be described as the biggest bait-and-switch on television -- a show that started as a sports farce and ended as a poignant reminder that you can't always judge a book by its cover.
In its way, over the years, behind all the crude turns and vulgar behavior, had a sweetness to it, an earnest, simple-minded optimism that made it strangely akin to that other slightly twisted HBO comedy on modern struggle and advancement, "Enlightened."
The show's more interesting than it was last season, as well. The season premiere opened strong with one of Eastbound & Down's all-time best installments.
