A redneck double-bill. Eastbound & Down has just returned for the start of season 2. I didn’t like it enough to keep watching season 1, but plenty of people whose opinions you should trust over mine like it a lot. So there we go. FX, Thursdays, 10pm.
And starting this week on Sky 1, also on Thursdays at 10pm, is new American sitcom Raising Hope, about a family which has to bring up a baby after its serial-killer mother is executed. It’s exec produced by Greg Garcia, the man behind My Name Is Earl, which is good enough for me to give it a try: it’s had a decent critical reception and has now been picked up for a full season.
