My Name is Earl Episode Recap: "Dodge's Dad"

This week's episode ended the season with a bang. With a few great cameos and some revealing information, we certainly had enough to keep us wanting more the next time around — and with a teasing "to be continued," I'm sure we'll have Earl in the back of our minds while we enjoy the summer. read more

My Name is Earl Episode Recap: "Inside Probe, Part 2"

My Name Is Earl Episode Recap: "Inside Probe, Part I"

This week's episode is the first installment of a two-parter. Huddled together in the Crab Shack, all of our Camden regulars watch Inside Probe, an investigative show hosted by Geraldo Rivera, playing himself. The program had been filmed eight years earlier, but was held up due to Darnell's Witness Protection status (he had refused to sign a release). So finally, they all get to see the episode, which explores the whereabouts of Crab Shack owner Ernie Belcher, who had gone missing.

Basically, we watch as each character is profiled and their relationship with Belcher is explored, with each being a suspect in his disappearance. The result is an amusing send-up of these types of shows, complete with the requisite reenactment segments. We also get to learn new things about some characters and watch how they behaved in the past, and it's a breath of fresh air. With much less storytelling comes more straight-up jokes, which I can imagine the actors had a lot of fun with. However, this means there's much less plot to recap — it's definitely a you-just-have-to-see-it episode. With that in mind, let's launch right into discussing some of what made this one pretty entertaining. read more
