Pure BrillianceBy Gromit (44 reviews) from Canterbury , 22 May 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]This is some of the most original comedy to have left the US in years. Jason Lee stars as 'Earl' a trailer-trash ex-criminal who reads an article about Karma and suddenly believes that he must make right all of the wrongs he has committed if he wants good things to happen to him. The premise is simple but the resulting stories are works of genius. Each episode revolves around a different 'wrong' that Earl wants to put right. Jason Lee and the supporting cast are all fantastic, each one of them obnoxious in their own way, but each one of them endearing to the viewer. This is highly recommended to all fans of Kevin Smith and anybody who just likes good, relaxed, intelligent comedy. A+++

My Name is EarlBy a customer from Derby , 18 Jul 2008You've got to see this it had us laughing from start to finish with some great memorable one liners.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008I missed the first few episodes of this comedy but based on the rest of what i have seen they would of been just as funny as the rest of this comedy.
Different from many other American comedies this one actually has a progressive story that is working towards an ending of some sorts,which most comedies don't have.Starring Jason Lee as Earl i guy used to the wrong side of the law until one day his luck changes and he decides to make right all of his wrongs he has ever done in his life.This is one of my favourite comedies from across the pond and i can not wait for this to come onto dvd just so i can see the episodes that i missed at the beginning and to rewatch the the whole series again,i would recommend this very highly.
Good KarmaBy moviegeek (1 review) from Telford , 05 Jun 2008My Name Is Earl is the latest comedy to come out of the U.S. and turns out to be one of the finest, next to Arrested Development and Scrubs that is. And just like these it has a fresh and original approach - audience applause has been dropped in favor of flashback's, freeze frame's and first-person narration - that is all too rare in modern television.
Earl is a trailer-trash lay-about who spends all his time drinking, watching T.V. and screwing people over. That is until he wins $100, 000 on a scratch card only to lose it seconds later when he is hit by a car. While in hospital he happens to be watching T.V. when Carson Daly mentions something about Karma. From here on Earl decide's that's what the problem is with his life - Bad Karma, and sets about righting all the wrong's he has done in his life by writing up a list of all the thing's he has done to people over the year's and one by one making up for them.
Every episode feature's Earl making up for one of his misdeeds, such as giving back some self-respect to an old flame, making up for birthday's he's ruined and even helping to plan his ex-wife's big day.
The result is an often hilarious look at human nature. The writing is great but the real treat lies in the casting. The supporting player's are all great, from Jamie Pressly as Earl's ex, and Ethan Suplee as his dim-witted brother through to the host of guest appearance's from the like's of Juliette Lewis and Giovanni Ribisi. But of course this is Jason Lee's show. He's always been such a treat in his film's over the year's and it's so good to see him back at his comedic best. A Must see * * * * *
Spot on!!By a customer from Harrogate, England , 17 May 2008I think that this whole season of My Name is Earl is the best one so far.
