East then South. That takes you to Florida if you're in the USA.
Fishy
EDIT* I guess it's filmed and set in North Carolina but you get the drift. I suppose "down" could also mean down on your luck as in a washed out pro baseball player.

I think it's the second one. Heading back East and Down n Out.

What does "Eastbound and Down" mean ?

I mean obviously the Esatbound bit is bound for the East, on an easterly heading, going east....

What does the "Down" bit mean ?

I watched Smokey and the Bandit a few weeks ago and I'm sure thats the theme tune on there.
Drew, confused :shock:

in the making off they mention they got the title from the smokey and the bandit themesong..
"Fuck, fuck, fuck, / Mother, mother fuck, / Mother, mother fuck, fuck / Mother fuck, mother fuck, / Noich noich noich, / 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, / Noich, noich noich / Smokin' weed, smokin' wizz, / Doin' coke, drinkin' beers, / Drinkin' beers, beers, beers, / Rollin' fattys, smokin' blunts, / Who smokes the blunts? / We smoke the blunts."

Was that the season finale???? Now I REALLY hope they get picked up for season 2.

You are right.... the best episode yet... back to what it promised at the start!  I was starting to worry for it with a couple of episodes there.

It kinda sorta seems like the episodes that Will Ferrel has not been directly involved in production of have been the best... imho.

You can't fight with all these books around, take out side to an alley and fight like regular people.

That was the finale, I guess him driving away makes it so.

I also agree the ep's without Will Farell are best of the lot, of course I am not much of a Will fan.

Looks like it got good enough ratings to probably return  8)

Quote
The ratings are in for the season-enders of the HBO Sunday-night comedies Flight of the Conchords and Eastbound & Down, and I'm a little surprised and mighty pleased to see that underdog Eastbound scored the higher ratings (904,000 vs. 678,000). Don't get me wrong: I admire the droll musical-comics Bret and Jemaine, but I did think this season of Conchords was a bit off. The songs weren't quite up to last season's quality, and the plotlines were a tad more predictable.

On the other hand, Eastbound & Down finished with a strong surge of quality. Danny McBride's down-and-out baseball pitcher Kenny Powers was (ugh, do I really have to write this?: SPOILER ALERT!) called up by the majors again... or so he thought. For a comedy as assiduously profane as Eastbound is, it's also got a lotta heart. I was genuinely moved when Kenny found out his regained dream was smashed once again, and yet he had to go through the Kenny Powers-patented motions of leaving town in a roar of bravado. I was even more moved by the sad face of April (the wondrous Katy Mixon) when Kenny left her and her suitcase in the dust as he fled from a convenience store in his car.

Last season, Conchords still seemed like a breath of fresh air with its low-key, very welcome gentle humor, and it gained a lot of hip pop-culture cachet. But Eastbound & Down, conceived as nobody's idea of "cool," ended up showing us that vulgar comedy can still do lots of sutble things, and few things on TV so far this year have matched McBride's portrait of a working-class guy trying to make it after imploding.

I've been watching this show again lately and enjoying the crude, tasteless humor. Danny McBride is great in this!

I wouldn't call this Will Ferrell's New Comedy Series, though. It was created by Ben Best, Jody Hill and Danny McBride.

The one with the curly hair? Kenny's nephew?

Agreed ladies - I always thought that kid looked familiar to me, and I guess that's why.

Side note: They were filming at my neighbors house down the street in Myrtle Beach. I can't wait to see if my Beach House is shown due to its filming location.

I also have a college buddy whom lives in Wilmington, and they were filming down the street from him. He was kinda mad though, it screwed with traffic really bad according to him.

When ya get outta jail, son? Dad, I don't know when
 But we'll get drunk and eat chicken fingers then, Dad.
