Is anyone a fan of "My Name is Earl"?

I think that "My Name is Earl" is the funniest, most creative show on TV. I literally laugh out loud during every episode. Are there any other fans out there?

YES! My husband never watches television, but we came across an episode via a friend, and we've been hooked ever since.

The show is brilliant.

Keen Eddie was great too

I love Jason Lee -- he's been great in just about everything I've seen him in (from Clerks to My Name Is Earl)

he's even back in Clerks 2

Many viewers aren't aware of this, but Earl, Randy, and their buddies live in western Maryland. The characters often make references to real locations, and the show's creator went to college somewhere nearby.

Let's be honest -- the characters are pure white trash, and the show constantly makes fun of them. If the show weren't so hilarious, and if the characters hadn't been created with such comedic affection, there'd be plenty of people out there protesting the stereotypes.

Some of my favorite moments:

When Randy wanted to go to the state fair to see the world's tallest midget (the previous year, the state fair had featured the world's shortest giant...probably the same guy).

Joy and Darnell's liquor store bridal registry ("8 bottles of tequila...got it")

Earl, Jr., the kid with history's biggest Afro.

Last night's flashback episode, when the gang thought that Y2K had ended the world.

Jason Lee was in Clerks??? He has been in a pile of Kevin Smith movies, but I think Clerks is one he was not it...

At any rate, I agree, Jason Lee is always good for big laughs!
