  • Earl tries to cross Jerry off his list.

    After a less than stellar episode at the 8:00 slot, the 8:30 installment was just as disappointing. Here we saw Darnell and Joy capture a legendary pig, only for it to die on them. Earl tried to help a man after blowing up his RV, which contained his jug.

    The only positive thing was a great guest appearance by legendary comedian Jerry Van Dyke who was hilarious in the role as a Korean War veteran who wanted to chop off a friend's ear. The episodes didn't just have bad storylines, they were both jumping the shark-ish. Last week's episodes were good, but because of these two MNIE Season 4 is a mixed bag.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • At the end of the episode, when Pigsquatch's head hit Earl's car, it should have left a dent, but just bounced up.

    • When Jerry goes after Joe to cut off his other ear, Joe steps out of his house and turns his head, and there is a bandage where the ear was. In the next shot it is gone.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Darnell: (about Earl and Randy) They don't watch black and white movies 'cause they remind them too much of newspapers.

    • Joy: Man, RVs are so much better than trailers. When a twister comes, you can just drive away instead of sitting in the bathtub with a pillow on your head.

    • Joe: I saw Jerry kill three Koreans with one bullet. No gun. Just pressed the bullets into their skulls.
