Can't believe they snuck in the licking of an ice cream push-up in a gay prison romance episode.

not a lot of comments on this one... was it the gay prison love that turned people off? I thought it was a pretty good episode (compared to the rest of the episodes of this show).

It's rare that a show takes me completely by surprise, but this episode certain did. I did not expect the twist at all.

It's a great way to shake things up by doing some prison eps.

I thought it was funny that the gang leaders were brawling when they locked them in solitary, and they were still brawling a month later. Little did I know the twist. Hilarious.

Poor Randy sat in a stolen car for 3 days waiting to be arrested.

I thought the episode was great as well. I loved seeing "Buckethead" at the end when the black gang thought Jamal was kicking Hector's ass while he was being electrocuted. Little touches like that always make me enjoy this show more.

The best part was they didn't make it obvious. It was just in the background for the keen-eyed to see.

The twist was funny. "U-Turn is alive!....and gay. I thought it was funny.

Yea, I also laughed at bucket head. I agree that it was better that it wasn't obvious.

I was kinda happy that Randy got to be a prison guard and be close to Earl.

@ bucket head

When the 2 guys kissed I said "Ohhhhhhh" then Earl turns and says "Ohhhhhhh"

Nice to see a 1/2 hour comedy for a change

Not a great episode, but I liked how they didn't pussyfoot around the romance.

I loved Randy's "Keep walking Ron" line and delivery.

I loved the cheap joke at the expense of prison guards -- Randy was the highest scorer of the year. I have a feeling Randy just might keep that job even after Earl gets out. Whether I'm right about that or not, I get a feeling we're going to see some positive growth out of that character. I think they know they drilled the stupid well about as deep as it would go last season.

"I want to play the race card. How do I do that?"

And Craig T. Nelson playing Guitar Hero was pretty funny.

Man, this episode had me howling! Did NOT expect the kiss, leading into the rest of the plot. Freakin' hilarious! Also real glad that Randy wasn't tossed into jail with the car theft idea. Great episode!

I loved the scene when Crabman was talking about Randy's extremely slow reaction time.

Overall I thought this was one of the funnier episodes.

"I wouldn't want to get between those two." Yup, Jason Lee knows all about "fingercuffs."

Funny episode.

Now we know how they'll get Earl out of prison- doing jobs for the warden should get him out of prison by the end of the season, if not sooner.
