Karma should be a four-letter word. Just ask Earl, the lovable loser with a hilarious laundry list of dirty deeds that need undoing, from stealing a childrens bookmobile to getting his babysitter pregnant the hard way! And, while Earls brother Randy starts a karmic list of his own, his ex-wife, Joy, and her new husband are movin on up to the suburbs. Trouble is, you can take the girl out of the trailer park, but you cant take the trailer park out of the girl. Hilariously irreverent and outrageously over-the-top, My Name is Earl Season Four proves, once again, that karma is a funny thing.

My Name is Earl (2005-2009) begins with the protagonist deciding to atone for all of his past misdeeds. He makes a list and attempts to rectify all of the bad things he did to people during his misspent life. The series starts strong, there is a clear goal, but while attempting to right his past wrongs, often in very peculiar ways, the protagonist adds more crimes to his list than he’s able to work off. After four seasons the series ends without the protagonist finishing his list. It's a failed mission. I started losing interest long before the series ended. By season four they had completely given up on the list. It was forgotten. The series was about nothing in the final season and ends with a "To be continued" in the middle of an episode that had nothing to do with the list or the protagonist's first season goal.
Too often I felt like I was watching the same episode over and over. In too many episodes you literally watch the same scene over and over. I’m not a fan of ground hog day type scenes, shows, movies, or flashbacks, etc. The constant use of narration to tell the story didn’t work for me either. Highlights of the show were the guest actors like Beau Bridges, Timothy Olyphant, Danny Glover, Ricardo Rivera, and Betty White. The turtle episode ended with a giant close up of a turtle saying, “Relax. No turtles were harmed during the making of this show. So please, no letters, Crackpots.” That was funny.
I liked The IT Crowd (2013) more than this show and some old comedies like I Dream of Jeannie (1965-1970) and F Troop (1965-1967) are funnier than My Name is Earl.
I can recall a number of fun one season wonder shows that were more entertaining, series such as The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. (1993), Eerie, Indiana (1991), Jack of All Trades (2002) The Middleman (2008), Odyssey 5 (2002), The Prisoner (1967), UFO (1970), and Wonderfalls (2004). Even weird Australian low budget shows such as Danger 5 (2012) and The Strange Calls (2011) and low budget web shows like Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog (2008), The Guild (2007-2013), and Voyage Trekkers (2011-2013) were better.
If you’re looking for good stuff to watch consider miniseries like The Astronauts Wives Club (2015), Band of Brothers (2001), Frank Herbert’s Dune (2000), Frank Herbert’s Children of Dune (2003), Into the West (2005), Lonesome Dove (1989), Manhattan (2014-2015), Return to Lonesome Dove (1993), Pride and Prejudice (1995), Taken (2002), and The 10th Kingdom (2000), which are all terrific because they have clear beginnings that establish an objective, then strong middles and conclusive endings where the goal is achieved, like a good novel.
Other shows I’ve really enjoyed include Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009), Breaking Bad (2008-2013), Cowboy Bebop (1998), Downton Abbey (2010-2015), Firefly (2002), Game of Thrones (2011-2019), Granite Flats (2013-2015), The IT Crowd (2006-2013), Jericho (2006-2008), Lost (2004-2010), Merlin (2008-2012), The Prisoner (1967-1968), Rome (2005-2007), Spartacus: Gods of the Arena (2011), Spartacus: Blood and Sand (2010), Stargate: SG-1 (1997-2007), Stargate: Atlantis (2004-2009), Star Trek (1966-1969) and Star Trek Voyager (1995-2001). I didn’t list any contemporary series I’m following that don’t have an end date yet, not conducive to binge watching from beginning to finish.
If you like reading try some of my favorite fantasy and sci-fi authors: Richard Adams, Palo Bacigulupi, Suzanne Collins, Abe Evergreen, Diana Gabaldon, Hugh Howey, George Martin, Brandon Sanderson, John Scalzi, and Andy Weir.
Earl did slide in Season 3 but got back to its roots in 4.
And it deserved another season. And should have gotten one.
But it was taken off and, inexplictably, didn't find another home.
Cast off and abadoned, Karma has come to roost at NBC.
Like the Red Sox when they traded away Babe Ruth, NBC has gone to the bottom.
Do good things and good things will happen.
Do bad things and bad things will happen.
NBC won't find it's Karma. it's on Fox with Raising Hope.
