My Name is Earl -- "" -- 5/8/2008

Synopsis:
Spoiler:
When Billie is inspired by Earl's Karma list, she starts to create a list of her own.

Last week's episode was one of the best in quite a while, so hopefully the streak will continue.

The episode is titled "Girl Earl."

And are there more episodes? TVRage lists this as the last episode.

Oops - sorry! TV.com (I know, I KNOW!) says next week there is an hour-long (a.k.a. two parter) called "Camdenites".

Did I miss something on this show? What happened to Randy's love of Catalina?

When they were married, she tried too successfully to make him disgusted by her and that killed his infatuation with her completely.

(BTW, are Randy and Catalina still technically married to each other?)

I think that they are still married, but she just found her long lost love, so maybe they will get divorced.

Don't forget that after successfully grossing Randy out, she realized (albeit briefly) that she wanted Randy. That was dropped pretty quickly.

Earl is definitly one of my favorite shows but this episode was probably my least favorite in the three years its been on. Maybe him and Alyssa just don't have the chemistry they were hoping for, i don't know. I just really didn't enjoy it all, which is a first.

I thought it was great. I didn't think they'd make Milano a regular, so they had to introduce a reason to split them up. Jon Heder didn't do much, but didn't have much to work with. Nice to see John Henson pop up somewhere.

This episode was certainly better than any of the previous ones featuring "The Hickies". It got to the point where I FF through any of Earl's coma visions.

Can someone give me a refresher on how Joy and Darnell's trailer got knocked over. Was it the motorcycle episode? I haven't missed any eps, but I'm blanking....

Earl is a Roth-era VH fan.

Another good episode last night -- hope the season finale next week is on par.

This was easily my favorite episodes this season. Though there have been other good ones, this one stood out for me. In particular, the entire second half was loaded with good lines. It was also nice to see a return to more of the original idea. Heder was also terrific.

Second good episode in a row. I hope that Earl and Billie stay married. It's a cop-out to have them break up right away. And if Billie continues her list, we will have the chance to see some familiar faces, ones that Earl has already crossed off his list.

Bagger Lance was the fucking shit! He made this episode. Jon Heder played a slightly less-challenged Napoleon Dynamite. Big whoop. Alyssa kinda sucks, but at least she's got a nice ass.

Here here. I'm not sure if the writers got tired of the "formula" or maybe the ran out of ideas, but I hope this is a sign of things to come.

So all these weeks and weeks of Earl loving, searching for & marrying Billie, and the best way they can write her out is because she wants him to shave his mustache? What a cop out. That's more on the level of fan fiction.

That seems to be the only thing that Jon Heder is able to play... Some variation of the Napoleon Dynamite character. More-challenged. Less-challenged. Same-challenged.
