A big league relief pitcher returns home to Shelby County, North Carolina following a spectacular career flame out, accepting a job as a substitute gym teacher in this comedy series created by Danny McBride, Ben Best, and Jody Hill (THE FOOT FIST WAY). Kenny Powers (McBride) was poised to rule the major league when his fading fastball and insufferable personality began to overshadow his game. Ejected from the sport after accusations of steroid use led to a major on-camera meltdown, Powers travels back to his hometown in North Carolina and reluctantly begins working as a substitute gym teacher while living with his brother Dustin (John Hawkes). But while Kenny may be down, he's certainly not out, and despite the fact that his fame has all but dried up, he begins plotting his inevitable comeback between repeated rounds of heavy drinking. Katy Mixon, Jennifer Irwin, and John Hawkes co-star in a comedy series produced for HBO by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.

This is a good series - I don't like american comedy - but i enjoyed this. I watched it after watching the movie "The Foot Fist Way" which is really good (same actor dude)

I thought this was teh funniest tv show ive seen in years. Litrally in tears of laughter at points.

Such a good show, Kenny Powers thinks of himself as some kind of god. His sidekick Stevie is hilarious!

Series 2 is on Sky at the moment so worth checking that out too.

Honestly, can't reccomend this show enough. Series 2 is better than the first one too, worth a buy to anyone who likes a good old bit of politically incorrect comedy

Read an article recently about Marilyn Manson idolising Kenny. You should see the pictures of him dressed up as him. Brilliant! Curly mullet and all

The praise given by previous posters in this thread in entirely justified. The laughter quota in this show is insanely high... and this coming from someone who rarely laughs during most so called *sitcoms*.

e.g.
The 'entrance' dance Kenny performs on his Mexican baseball debut is possibly the funniest jig since David Brent in the Office. Tears were rolling down my face. GENIUS.

they made a second series!?

I love this show!!

stubar

they made a second series!?



It's brilliant!! He is in Mexico

with hulk hogans theme tune in the background too

I AM A REAL AMERICAN lol

cool series, if you like it check out 'the foot fist way' its the film that inspired the series with the same actor

Excellent series, between this and 'Always Sunny in Philadelphia' the American sitcoms are absolutely trouncing their British counterparts.

from his Twitter "My last meal? I want to go out like I f**king came in. Breastfed."

series 2 currently on fx Thursday nights........i think stevie's character ranks up amongst Dwight schrute and Gareth from the office...amazing serires
