Funny ha ha

'My Name is Earl' jumps straight into my must see list. Good job really, things seem to jump out of it usually - 'Desperate Housewives', 'Lost'. Nice simple concept (Earl decides he has to do something good for every bad thing he's done or karma will kill him) that opens up loads of possiblities, solid characters (and great performacnes) that bounce off each other nicely, some good one liners, but most importantly, it really knows how to set events up. It's the way one thing leads to another or some that happened early has consequences with sometihng later that really makes 'My Name Is Earl' work.

It's very Kevin Smith as well in style - good job really as the two lead actors are Smith Veterans. The writing is well structured - thoroughly enjoyed it (and it's good to see Jason Lee on something comically worthy).
