  • After winning the lottery and getting hit by a car seconds later, Earl Hickey is in the hospital when he discovers Karma. He decides to make a list of everything he's done wrong and tries to make up for it.

    I loved this episode. I watched the pilot in July, and told all of my friends they HAD to watch this show! I was cracking up the whole time I watched it. I couldn't wait to see more. One of the lines "Peed in the back of a cop car-- I'm no longer proud of that", kept me chuckling for a week. I can't wait to see where this show goes in the future, but I'll be tuning in every Tuesday to find out. "Earl" is already on my Must-See-TV list, and the 2nd episode only just aired. It's refreshing to know that all hope may not be lost for sitcoms. Plus, it kind of reminded me of "Northern Exposure", which is one of the funniest shows ever.
