And series finale, I guess. Maybe. We'll see. Jody and Danny don't know, so we don't know.
So. That... well... that fucked me in the heart. And I literally loved every second of it.
I feel bad that I could literally give less than two shits about Girls (which so far seems like Greta Gerwig the show, not a bad thing) right now, because Eastbound still has me smiling. I can see how people will hate the ending, maybe even see it as a cop out to some degree, but I think it is 100% appropriate, and is actually a good one. It’s… it’s goddamned beautiful. I think Danny McBride did a fantastic job keeping his character true while still toning him down for the sake of real confrontation. Him and the show runners got a great handle of the character, finally, and made this season the best. It's perfect in pretty much all aspects. Absolutely hilarious, and 100% necessary in its character and dramatic moments.
The Rough House gang, especially Jody Hill, wrapped this adventure up neatly, and right by the tale. I'm very proud of that man, as this is probably his most serious work he's handled so far, and it's absolutely beautiful as such. I could only wish for more to see some more of the other characters. But the ending is in its own way perfect, and didn’t need to change a thing. The character was still there and all (dumb), but the change was there. Just... just beautiful- I'll say it over and over again, man.
Also this marks the first time that Seth Rogen has been killed on screen. Kind of a nice Observe and Report reunion, but honestly, the most fucked up, hilarious opening the show has had yet. Why not close out on a high note, right? A high note coated in blood. I cried at that. Then I continued to cry because of the rest of the episode being fucking amazing.
Folks, who followed the series to the end, or just watched it because, what did you think? Especially of the ending ending?
