HBO (ended 2013)
Sorry but I have to disagree with you on that, this show was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time, it reminds me of Trailer Park Boys and Back Of The Y. Sure its no Curb, but its not trying to be.
I mean what were you expecting with a main character like that? An intellectual sitcom to rival the likes of Frasier and Curb? No, you're going to see a crude, foul mouthed and idiotic redneck doing things his way or not at all.
Call me anti-American if you like but I can't help but feel that Kenny Powers embodies the perception of America on the world stage (perhaps before Obama became President Elect). Powers is blindly self righteous, self-centered, consumed by pride and thinks that admitting he is wrong is a fundamental weakness. "I gotta remember that I am a winner man, I gotta remember that I am better than everyone else! F%*# man! I'm a bulletproof tiger dude!" - Kenny Powers.
It was really harrowing to see something like that lead the world stage, but seeing Powers do the same in the south, where he can't really hurt anyone, that's funny as hell.
EDIT : Also judging a pilot from the first ten minutes isn't really fair, but judging this show without seeing the awesome jet ski scene at the end is a crime.
TheJugglaJay Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but if you don't like this show, then your opinion sucks and I do not agree you.
I really want to know what you find funny.....this is a great show......
The bottom line is, people who dont like the show, do seem to be missing the point. We should be laughing at Kenny because of what he is. It reminds me alot of the old British sitcoms of the seventies and eighties that people look back upon as being racist, xenophobic etc but the basically mocked these kinds of people even if perceptions were not too quick to be jumped on like they are now - when political correction has really gone cuckoo and many of us are in fear to speak our minds.
This is a good show and being in Scotland I`m only on episode 3 but would expect it to get another season on what`ve seen so far. Lets face it, good TV is not something we get alot of these days. I think we should maybe be grateful guys who are doing pretty well in Hollywood are also wanting to bring their talent to the small screen !
