'Eastbound & Down': Chapter 11

While I’ve been on vacation, A LOT has been going on the world of Kenny Powers. We’re now down to two episodes left in season two, and the last two chapters have set us up nicely for next Sunday’s show.

To bring everyone up to speed, KP hit rock bottom last week. After seemingly becoming the top dog of Copales, Mexico, “La Flama Blanca” played himself right out of the Charros pitching rotation, his girlfriend left him for the team owner and he was finally left with no other choice then to take off - in Sebastian’s Lamborghini - looking for the mysterious Eduardo Sanchez. Turns out, Eduardo Sanchez is KP’s dad, played by Don Johnson with a bad mullet and a mouth equally as foul as his son.

Chapter 11 picks up right where we left off: With father and son exchanging a few words while also trying to one-up each other with their faux stories of success. Eduardo then takes KP and Stevie (Eduardo’s verbal jabs at Stevie brought most of the laughs in this episode) on a tour of his home where the former meets his stepmother, Soledad, and his mute, blockheaded half-brother, Casper.

But could Florida pinball whiz Justin Bieber carry a tune and belt out all the lyrics to "Baby"? And would the bevy of Betty Whites in Boston be able to pull off a "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig with such aplomb?

We may get a chance to find out next summer, when "The Same Name" – still under consideration at CBS – hopes to air on the network.
