  • Not drop-dead hilarious, but well-written and fun to watch

    I don't think I really burst out laughing while watching the pilot, but I enjoyed it thoroughly nonetheless. This show has a degree of wit about it that is rarely found in lesser quality, gut buster, laugh-a-minute comedies. There is a definitely a human touch to My Name is Earl. He is a character many of us can identify with and is surrpunded by lovable versions of the poor white trash that many of us find living in the house next door.

    I hope the show can maintain this heartfelt ambience and that it won't succumb to the silliness that is rampant in many of today's comedies.

    All in all, a great show!
