    sorry if it has been mentioned before but there does not seem to be much chatter about 'My name is earl'

    i personally think this is one of the best programmes on tv at the moment and is one i look forward to each week, along with 'Planet Earth'

    i thought the episode last night was one of the better ones.

    :D

    anyone else watch it?

    it's the funniest show on tv, and if you like that, don't miss everybody hates chris on channel 5 starting this sunday, it's a similar type of humour, narrated by chris rock. thats my close second favorite comedy show on tv

    fantastic cast on earl, with kevin smith favorites jason lee and ethan suplee (who's been the fat guy in about a million films), and of course yumminess from jaime pressley and nadine velasquez (who have nice features in this months maxim)

    I've always liked Jason Lee and this is a great vehicle for him. Some episodes start out weak, but then manage to pull something out of the comedy sack, its great!

    great. the moustache cover was funny on fri, and wasn't Jon Favreau a nasty man when he made earl eat the dirty chip. Only thing is it very samey each week, but it works, and earls brother is a funny character.

    I seem to have missed an episode.

    I was trying to find out a list of episodes and the Channel4 site was a bit rubbish (only seemed to have 4 episodes). However, I found this on epguides.com:

    Anyway, I missed last friday's episode (10 March) and then discovered it had been a double bill (presumable White Lie Christmas/Barn Burner). Watched E4 on thursday 10:30 (White Lie Christmas) and set the tape for 1:30am (turned out to be White Lie Christmas again). So I saw the most recent (O Karma...) and I've missed Barn Burner.

    Anyone know what's going on with the repeats? I can't work out this E4/More4 stuff - "Second Chance", "Brand New" etc.

    My guide (TV guide from The Guardian) had it down as repeat of IT Crowd + Earl rather than a double bill. Maybe Channel4 did a last minute rearrangement.

    For those following the show on E4 heres the deal...

    Due to a double bill on Channel 4 a week back E4 is 2 weeks behind and plan to skip an episode (Barn Burner) in the Thursday/Sunday slot to take it back to just one week behind.

    However you can see this 'missing' episode on E4 as part of a triple bill on this Saturday night, Barn Burner is the middle of the three.

    Have to agree.....can't remember which episode it is but when Randy is sent blind after getting some powder in his eyes and quotes "I can't understand why Stevie Wonder is always smiling"

    Had me rolling on the floor :clap:

    And as for Joy (Jaime Pressley) :devil: I had a cracking dream one night after watching a couple of episodes and we were married !! living in that trailer :rotfl: oh how I was annoyed when I woke up !!

    after doing this program hopefully miramax will let kevin smith cast jason lee as fletch.
    If not no fletch, even tho i think ryan reynolds could play it (sorry for going off topic).

    Earl - " Don't tell randy where going to a farm"
    Catalina - " Why ?"
    Earl - "He's afraid of chickens........ and the popes hat but thats because he thinks theres a chicken under it"

    Another vote for Earl. I just love the way it still gives you a warm feeling after each episode (not many TV programmes do that these days..)

    And for Catalina of course. Schwiiinnnnnnggg!!!
