With the strike in full effect, I've been rather desperate for alternatives (see thread below).  This weekend, I finally fired up all the MY NAME IS EARL episodes I've had sitting on my DVR since the new season began.

As I've said before, I was a fan of MY NAME IS EARL before I started watching THE OFFICE.  In fact, the only reason I started watching season two of THE OFFICE was because it came on right after MNIE, and I was too lazy to change the channel ("The Dundies" did the rest).

I started losing interest in season two of MNIE because they went with a season-long plot arc where Earl's ex-wife Joy was arrested for committing a kidnapping/ robbery and was looking at being sent to prison.  I thought the Joy stuff was boring, felt the show had lost the edge it had in season one, and didn't bother to see the last half of the episodes last year. 

Season three started with another gimmick -- Earl is now in jail, serving the time for his ex-wife.  Seemed lame, but now that I've caught up with all the third season episodes, I admit the error of my ways.  The prison thing adds a whole new level to the show's insanity, and I find myself remembering why I liked the show in the first place.

NBC's Video Rewind has the last 6 episodes online.
