Series of the Week: My Name is Earl

“Hey, Crabman!”
My Name Is Earl is an Emmy Award-winning American sitcom created by Greg Garcia. It is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. It is currently in its third season and is broadcast on the NBC television network.
The series stars Jason Lee, Ethan Suplee, Jaime Pressly, Eddie Steeples, and Nadine Velazquez. Lee stars as Earl J. Hickey, a petty crook with occasional run-ins with the law, whose newly won $100,000 lottery ticket is lost when he is hit by a car. While hospitalized and under the influence of morphine, Earl hears Carson Daly talk about karma on TV and comes to the conclusion that his bad luck has been caused by his lifestyle. (It is typical of Earl that he believes Carson Daly invented the concept of karma.) He decides to make a list of everything bad he has ever done, with the intention of making up for all of his mistakes and crossing the items off the list as he goes.
Earl's first good deed, picking up garbage, leads to him finding his lost winning lottery ticket.
Karma is a recurring theme throughout the show, and its effects are shown not just on Earl, but also on other characters, such as Earl's ex-con friend Ralph, who ends up wanted by the police again after refusing Earl's offer to help him change his ways and trying to steal Earl's money.
In some instances, Karma exists not only as a theme, but also a character that dictates Earl's actions. Earl will occasionally address Karma directly as if it were a deity or an otherwise omniscient and powerful being, and will (almost) always yield to whatever he perceives as its will. Earl proclaims in one episode, "I am Karma's bitch." The List is portrayed as the physical manifestation of Karma. Karma is also portrayed in the final episode of the first season as the old woman who hit Earl with her car after he scratched off his winning lottery ticket ("I saw Lady Karma again").
Earl's behavior raises an interesting question of morality: Is he motivated only by his desire to gain good 'karma', thus acting only in his own self-interest, or is he truly sorry for everything he has done, and has turned his life around? The show is somewhat ambiguous on this matter, with different episodes suggesting different answers, and some implying that it could be both. For example, in episode 1.04 Earl intends to confess to his ex-girlfriend that he faked his death to get away from her because she was too clingy. When Catalina points out that this will hurt her feelings and asks him what's more important, his list or someone's feelings, Earl responds, "I dunno. My list?" On the other hand, Earl shows true empathy in episode 2.02 when Joy is arrested. He eventually passes out from worrying about Joy. When he asks Catalina why he may have passed out, she responds, "Because you're a good person, Earl."
Creator, Greg Garcia wrote the pilot while working on another sitcom, Yes, Dear. He initially pitched the series to Fox, which passed on the series. He then approached NBC, which optioned the pilot on a cast-contingent basis, meaning they would order the pilot provided a suitable cast could be assembled.
Jason Lee was approached for the lead role, but was uninterested in working in television and passed on the series twice before finally agreeing to read the pilot script. Though he liked the pilot, he was hesitant to commit until after meeting with Garcia.
The series premiere on September 20, 2005, drew in 15.2 million viewers in the United States, earning a 6.6 rating. By the airing of the third episode it was apparent that My Name Is Earl was the most popular of NBC's new fall offerings, and a full season (22 episodes) was ordered. In its first month, it was also the most popular new sitcom of the season to air on any network and was the most popular sitcom on any network in the coveted 18–49-year-old demographic. The show was renewed for a second season, which although has seen a dip in average viewers (around 10 million or so in Season 2 compared to 12 million for Season 1) is still a critics' juggernaut and has recently been renewed for another season.Ever thought about changing the world but thought that one man is not enough to do that?! I think this TV-series will make you to change your mind. It's about a guy who was a nobody, just an ordinary burglar and bang he wins a 100 000$ and wants to make his life better and to right all the wrongs from his past. The idea is really catchy, something new and seems to be funny. wouldn't you like to see a burglar bringing you back your wallet and talking about a some kind of list? Or making up for the day he long time ago ruined... I would definitely like to see that.it's really funny, everything: Earl, with his "fancy" haircut and nice moustache his dumb brother Randy who sometimes says something no one can understand but they realize it makes sense or something like that Lets not forget Catalina, the ex-striper but now she's a house maid and good friend of Earl and Randy.. Joy, Crab man, they are all funny and the actors where chosen perfectly. It's one of those show which makes you to think about your life, what can you do to make the world a better place to live: “do good things and good things will happen to you, do bad, bad will happen”. My Name is Earl it is 30 minutes of deep subtext served with irony and humor… 8/10

    Michael Bay, better known as the director of The Transformers movies, has an interesting way of auditioning leading ladies. Back when he was casting for the first film in the franchise, he had Megan Fox wash his Ferrari. At his house. And he filmed it. And now has no idea where the tape is. “Wash a Ferrari.” Is that what they call sex tapes nowadays? megan fox naked photos

    Skin picking and nail biting are chronic problems, so there is not currently
    a "cure" but you can find a recovery if you are willing to work at it.
    To stop biting nails, your physician might use B vitamin inositol
    which enhances serotonin activity in the brain resulting in lessening of nail biting tendencies.
    Especially when the nails are very weak, there is a higher chance for the fingernails to break.
