Sons of Anarchy:
Sons of Anarchy is back for its third season on the FX network in the United States, and, as usual, we won’t see it until October 20 on Super channel when the season is already over in the USA. However, if you are like me you are watching and or downloading them illegally on the internet because you just can’t wait until October to find out what happened to Jax’s kid. So we are four episodes deep on season three and they have just located Jax’s kidnapped son and SAMCRO is on their way to Canada to skip their bail on their assault charges from season two. Then it would seem that the MC is on their way to Ireland to deal with their gun connection, the IRA. Should be interesting to see how this one pans out. I am curious to see what the relationship between Jimmy and the Sons will be like after this whole ordeal with Jax’s kid is all said and done. I am also curious to see how they will portray Canada and if they did any on location shooting for the Canadian scenes. If you want to watch this fabulous show, you can rent the first two seasons at most video stores and Best Buy. Or you can watch them on sites like http://www.surfthechannel.com/ or http://tvshack.cc/. Both of these sites will direct you to Mega Video, so you can watch a new one every Thursday. Or you can wait like a sucker until it comes out on Super Channel on October 20 or, even worse, until it comes out on Blue Ray.
East Bound and Down:
If you have seen Pineapple Express, Hot Rod, Topic Thunder, Land of the Lost or The Heart Break Kid you have seen great roles by Danny McBride, well maybe not Land of the Lost, but that was because it just sucked really bad, it wasn’t his fault. Danny McBride is one of Will Ferrell’s up and coming protégés, and he is hilarious. Anyone who is familiar with his work knows about an HBO show that he produces and stars in called East Bound and Down. Will Ferrell has even done two episodes of the show. The show is about a washed up Major League Pitcher who used to be the shit. His name is Kenny Powers and he still believes and acts like he is a superstar when in fact he is divorced three times, broke and last season forced him to go back home and live in his brother basement and work as a high school gym teacher. After getting a phony contract offer from a coked out managers assistant from the Tampa Rays, because of a You Tube video that shows Kenny knocking out the eye of a former Home Run King Mackworthy with a 102 MPH pitch, he re-kindles his relationship with his high school flame and offers to take her to Tampa Bay.
But after finding out that the offer was bogus he leaves her on the side of the road. This season we find Kenny in Mexico under the alias Steve the Cock Fighter. After his cock fighting stint fails, he receives an offer to Pitch for a Failing Mexican League team. So now that Kenny has his pitch back and he has a deal in Mexico it should be interesting because Kenny is one of the most racist, rude, womanizing, self observed people you have ever seen. And he is hilarious. You catch Kenny Powers in East Bound and Down at 9:30 p.m. on HBO. And, if you are too cheap to get HBO, watch it on the internet. This one is also very worth watching!
