There was never a doubt in my mind...

Very
positive reviews and great ratings:

Think “Quantum Leap” in a trailer park with a half finished bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 ...

luckily, the series has a wicked spirit coursing beneath its amiable do-good surface, with enough bite to entice viewers and maybe even to bring NBC back from the brink

NY Times

In a season stuffed with "aspirational" reality remakes of Queen for a Day, Earl is a bright comic twist on TV's makeover madness

USA Today

The Basics: Smart. Edgy. Quirky. Unlike anything you've seen before. These are not exactly phrases you might expect to apply to an NBC comedy, but Earl is precisely that, thanks to the genius concept, script and direction

I can't wait!

Well, I missed the first one. But based on that, perhaps I'll give it a try.

I posted somewhere else about it, I thought it was pretty good myself. Lee, Suplee (minus 100 pounds it almost seems), and Pressly make a pretty good white trash combo.

Rather fantastically I haven't managed to find a bad review for this series!

The buzz is that "My Name Is Earl" is good, and the truth is that it's better than the buzz. TV's never had a character quite like Earl: naive, ignorant, without ambition and, as played by Jason Lee, impossible to dislike.

Hollywood Reporter

Blessed less with belly laughs than an amusingly wry tone, this single-camera half-hour disarmingly focuses on an underclass that seldom gets much attention in the neatly manicured world of primetime.

Variety

He's the asshole you love, the guy you want to get a shot glass worth of decency, but stay a solid gold fuck-up forever. What's so wonderful about My Name Is Earl is that it's a comedy with its heart in the right place and everything else gleefully in the gutter.

Pop Matters

It's quirky, heartwarming and a laugh-out-loud hoot, much like the Coen brothers' hilarious 1987 film Raising Arizona that starred Nicolas Cage as a bumbling loser.

Palm Beach Post

Well...nearly...

Derivative and repetitious, the comedy keeps hitting the same notes, then pounding and stomping on them. Worse, "Earl" will already seem familiar to fans of the wackily rollicking 1987 Coen brothers comedy "Raising Arizona."

Washington Post

But hey, you can't please everyone. I'm really excited that Channel 4 have bought 'Earl' and hope that this finally brings Jason Lee the mainstream success he so richly deserves.

He's still my number one:

I have only seen one episode but i like the Show "my name is Earl". See my names really is Earl and the funny thing is when my friends and I were younger we all joked around about Who would play us if there was ever a film about us and I allways said Jason Lee would play me because he kinda looks like me. Well years later he does this show about a guy named Earl.... kinda weird. usually when theres a character called Earl in a film or show its allways the ugly creepy little igor type.

Just watched episode 1 and it was brilliant. Great Raising Arizona style intro. Lee and Jamie Pressly are oustanding. Destined to be the years funniest and most quotable US comedy show.

I thought so too. No shitty sets or canned laughter, either.

The best part of it is that I still find Jason Lee hot in it - Hurrah!

I knew it!

When Jason's a huge mainstream star I hope he remembers I loved him first.

I remember when I was a "wanna-be" skater back in the day, I used to keep up with him a small bit. If you can find Sonic Youth's "My Friend Goo" video, you can check him out in action.

Episode 3 airs tommorow, looking forward to it.

My Name is Earl is absolutely hilarious. Vince is consistently unimpressed with American TV and this has him falling off the sofa in hysterics. Jason Lee is a legend and the casting all round is perfect. It's set to become a comedy classic, I tells ya!
