Yeah that was sooo great. I finally have a good reason to vote for Pedro! I was never sold on him.
You got room for one mas more?

So glad Stevie is back.

?????McBride confirms that, should the show be renewed, he and co-creator Jody Hill already have plans for what would be the third and final season—plans that do not include an awkward Marilyn Manson cameo:
“In our wildest dreams, this was like a three-season show that arced over those three seasons, so we do have an idea of where to go: It's to an Ewok village, next season is Return Of The Jedi. There's all this parallel action between a space station and a planet with furry creatures, and I think people will like that. It's different from what we've been doing.”
haha @ McBride's comment that letting Manson on the show would "ruin the magic". After watching the first two episodes of season 2, I would say the magic faucet is now running at a trickle.
The transition from season 1 to 2 was too abrupt. Part of what made season 1 great was all the different characters and their relationships with Powers. Now they're all gone and the show is a little wobbly with just Powers. Stevie is good but not enough, and he's not really a solid straight-man to Powers' goofball asshole. This show needs funny straight-men, and season 1 had them all over the place. Not so much now.
Michael Pena, as he is in everything he's in, is awesome in the scene with Kenny debating whether tits or ass is better. This is a brilliant scene, in many, many ways. I hope this scene is available somewhere on the internet for me to inappropriately post on friends facebook pages. (Note: I have yet to look)
"I do hope you're kidding. Looks like shit! What the hell's he doing? Print that from a JPEG? Mo'fucker needs to be using TIF files. My face looks all computery and pixelated!"
This season definitely has funny moments but overall...
I dunno, I want to love it, and parts of it are really great but there's just something about it. What made the first season so great was that Kenny was insane in a sane world. Now he's insane in an insane world (Mexico) and I feel like that made it lose some of it's magic. I give props to McBride and Hill for taking the series in a much different direction but I don't know if it was the right choice.
Hopefully I'm wrong though and this season becomes amazing in the second half and allows them to do a third one.
The quality this show is bringing every week is mind-blowing, though completely in line with the first season in my opinion. What really impresses me is that amongst all of the insanity attendant to the life of Kenny Powers, we're treated to some really poignant moments, such as the whole sequence at the end of the last episode that was pure David Gordon Green. It reminded me a lot of the Caterpillar scene from "Pineapple Express."
I liked it so much I uploaded it to Vimeo:

these guys are my favorite filmmakers - every time I think about it I am coming to the realization that Pineapple Express is probably my favorite comedy of all time
"You are a majestic creature. What is your name steed?"
alright im kidding, but seriously: this show is so good right now
"Fuck you, Aaron!"
agreed with previous posters, season 1 seems a lot better so far. Stevie is good, but Andy Daly was way better. Like that scene where all 3 interacted when Powers was pitching, Stevie making sure everyone was turned around then Andy Daly coming out to question what was going on.
This season is funny, but its only because Kenny Powers is funny. Last season cutler, stevie, the drug dealer, ashley S could all be funny just by simply talking to powers. This season doesn't really have that imo.
It's not supposed to be the same as season one. The thing about these guys is that they take there characters lower than most comedies dare to go and if that means they have to move on from great co-stars in order to serve the story then so be it. It may not be as laugh out loud funny as the season one but it sure is damn compelling. The only thing I don't like about these guys is that they made me care about an asshole like Kenny Powers.
Can someone make a .gif of Kenny fake-humping Vida and high-fiving her son?
