My Name Is EarlI've liked Christine Taylor ever since the summer my sister and I watched Nickelodeon's dude-ranch comedy Hey Dude

every afternoon and we really wanted her to hook up with the goofy blond guy who went on to become the boyfriend on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. She's quite a one-note actress, always playing the perky, smart girl with a soft spot for the underdog, but what's not to like about that? Tonight she was the perky, smart college professor with a fascinating fish-tank screensaver and a soft spot for Earl's down-home Buddhist philosophy. And that combination is what it finally took to get Earl to even consider sacrificing his list long enough to have a life. "It wasn't the first time a woman kicked me in the cherries and called me a rat, but it was the first time I didn't mind," said Earl in wonder. Meanwhile, Randy found his intellectual equivalent in a frat house (so that's why he seems familiar!). He got to pass on the lesson of karma to his new buddies, too: Paddle he who paddled you. That's gonna cause chaos in the entire university system.
