  • Earl helps Buddy make a movie.

    After a third season that deviated from the show's premise Earl seems to be track on with a fine episode here. Family Guy and Robot Chicken's Seth Green was hilarious here with his egotistical attitude and constant usage of the catchphrase "awesome". Fan favorite Randy was on his A game as well. It's a rarity that a character so dense can have such longevity, but this poor man's Cosmo Kramer has caught on with the NBC audience.

    The storyline was not very original, but My Name Is Earl managed to provide an entertaining half hour here. Earl is not the most complex program on television yet they manage to excel with a seemingly basic format. The trailer park trash gags may be growing a little tiresome but the show as a whole is still fairly fresh in its fourth year.
