  • Earl has a gambling problem. Oh, wait, it's not a problem, he's winning.

    This whole episode is full of great twists and hilarious moments, Joy's anger "disease", over 200 balogne sandwiches, Karma helping Earl gamble and Catalina being deported all having great involvement in this episode and leading a great cliffhanger.

    Kenny trying to be manly is classic and Earl's luck on betting is terrific aswell and steers away from the cliche of many shows that make characters lose everything (like Kenny) and the expectation that Earl would lose Catalina has a few twists in that Earl did win a lot back but already disappointed Catalina by indirectly being responsible for her being deported and ruining Randy's hilarious atttempt at winning her love. To be continued...
  • Good episode...

    This is the third episode that I have seen this season and I am impressed with this season it is very funny. In this episode earl makes like 200 bologna sandwiches for kenny. Then kenny wanted earl to help him be more like earl. then earl gets back to gamblin and gambles catalina's money away then catalina gets pulled over by the cops in earls car and she gets deported. This episode was really hilarious I liked when earl was making the sandwiches and asks randy "should i count the sandwich that I chewed up and shoved down his throut? later...
  • Earl tries to help Kenny but ends up becoming a gambling addict.

    Well, the ep started out promising enough. Earl was making sandwiches for Kenny (remember Kenny?) to make up for all the times he took his lunch in high school. He takes the sandwiches to Kenny and ends up being talked into helping Kenny become more "macho" like Earl. This is all well and good until they start gambling and Earl gets addicted to it. In the meantime, Randy is planning to tell Catalina how he feels for her (FINALLY!) but thanks to Earl and his addiction, Catalina gets pulled over driving Earls car and is now going to be deported. Also, Joy went to anger management. The meeting isnt just for A.M. though, it is also for Kleptomaniacs, Alcoholics, Shopaholics..etc...These meetings and generally anything with Joy in it tonight were the saving grace for tonights ep. I don't like Earl the Gambler. :(
