  • Earl tries to win his dad an election

    As usual, Australia messes up its programming, in this case Channel 7 shows episode 9 this week, skipping episodes 3 through 8. However, it doesn’t seem like much has changed, though Joy seems to hate Earl a lot less (I guess he crossed off one of the many things on his list that involved his ex-wife).

    Anyway, this episode is very entertaining as we get to meet Earl’s parents, his father being a great character and the bail issue is handled very well, though Earl couldn’t cross the election off his list (guess he’ll have to wait four more years).

    The tasering and the excuse that he locked his keys in his car were the highlights of the episode for me though I also greatly enjoyed Earl saying his father had diarrhea on the debate and all in all this episode is quite good and I hope 7 fills in the blank episodes.
