  • Some good jokes, some bad jokes.

    It makes sense to get creative with the story focus while Earl's in jail, but I wish this two-parter had been funnier. The second half made me laugh a few times, especially toward the end ("Terrorists: 1; cops: 1. Tie game. Your move, terrorists."), and some of the bits with TV's Tim Stack were funny too. Still, the better parts of the show were offset by some uncharacteristic sexual humor, violent humor, and an offputting scene with a camera probe--jokes that might be welcome in other shows (if they were done well) but which felt out of place here. Better than the first half, because at least I could tell this episode took effort. But in all, I would rather have seen another prison-oriented episode than a haphazard diversion like this.
