I was surprised by how good it was actually. I saw the trailer and thought I would give it a go and am really glad I did. The humour was right up my street and I'm not sure if there is anything funnier than seeing the brother getting his groove on! Can't wait to see the next episode and am glad to hear it continues in the next episodes...

Very good episode, I was right, it has a Coen Brothers quality to it!! Some of it reeks of Raising Arizona. I liked the old mother and the large print bible!!

Exactly what I was thinking when he was driving away from the woman with one leg.

Again, it was enjoyable enough, but it hasn't made me laugh out loud yet. It seems to finish far too quickly.

I was a bit disappointed with this weeks episode, it was o.k., but not really that funny.

It does feel a bit rushed, maybe at an hour long, it could tell it's story properly. Maybe it isn't meant to make you laugh out loud, prehaps it's supposed to have that quirky funny feel to it. Give it time, it's still early days.

Saw the first episode, thought it was OK, raised a smile. Saw the second and thought it was much stronger. The premise is a superb one for a sitcom and, whilst it's not laugh out loud funny, it's nice to see a relaxed comedy that still manages to be offensive. Plus the ideas of how to right the wrongs (such as how Earl gives the mother back her two years) are great. The only thing that doesn't quite work for me is the ex-wife character but it's early days.

I think the show woudl work better had it been a series of shorts. Each episode seems far too thin and didn't really hold my attention. Like Buddy said above, the premise is brilliant for a sitcom but they need to put more into it I think for it to work fully.

Watched the C4 episode last night and thought it was even better than the first, if the premise can keep going (267 episodes?) it should be a real highlight of my watching week.

As much as I love his film work, perhaps Jason Lee is better suited to the smaller screen?

At least this could help make him a household name, and that's good enough for me!!

I missed the first episode, but caught the second. Absolutely fucking hilarious, seriously one of the funniest things I've seen for ages, on film or TV. I laughed out loud all the way through!

I was so please to see Jason Lee with his own show - brilliant comedy actor, just such a cool bloke!

Stealing a car from a one legged woman? Brilliant! I'm gonna be buying these on DVD for sure.

Itís true. Thereís something strangely compelling about this show. Itís such easy watching and Jason Lee is just so adorable in it that you canít help but sit and smile. Even though itís not particularly funny. But you canít turn it off. Bizarre!!

I thought last nights show was funny. The horror on his face when he woke up in the morning, after going to bed with some sex-crazed vamp with Ride Me tattooed above her arse.
I was sad not to see the gay chap in it or the old bloke who puts a microphone to his throat. I thought they might be regulars on the show.
Hilarious stuff, one of the funniest programmes for a while. I laughed my socks off when he climbed into the fridge and put his face inbetween the Missing children on the milk cartons.

My Name Is Earl is one of the best things I've seen in years, and the fact it isn't on Australian TV yet is just proof that the state of TV here is getting worse and worse all the time.

Ethan Suplee is well cast as the dopey brother, and Jaime Pressly is great as the crazy, slightly redneck ex-wife.

I like the Catalina character too... not quite a love interest (although Earls' brother has "Dibs" on her), not quite the straight woman, and not quite comic relief. And as for the actress herself: [Quagmire]Giggity Giggity Giggity! [/Quagmire]

The gay guy and the old man with the voice synthesiser show up in later episodes, too.

I think the show has a lot of potential, and I hope it gets a really, really long run- of course, given what happened to Arrested Development and Futurama, that's not a given...
