  • 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...
