The Good: Being the television lover that I am, I have been quite disappointed with many of the shows that have come out over the past couple of years. But this season, a show has come on that I think is remarkably funny and well written. That show, is "My Name is Earl" starring Jason Lee of "Chasing Amy" and "Dogma" fame. The show is about a lifelong loser, "Earl", who has spent the most of his existence stealing, swindling, and doing whatever he can to get over. That was until the day that he purchased a lottery ticket and won 100,00 dollars. Being that he got hit by a car as he learned that he won the money, he figured that it was a act of Karma and that he should use the money to make amends with everyone that he has wronged by making a list of those people. Each week, he attempts to check off one of the people off his list by finding the person who he wronged, and doing whatever it takes to make it right.(One episode he had to make amends with a woman that he once dated, and in a cowardly attempt faked his death to break up with her. Funny as shit) The writing is outstanding, it is definitely something that I suggest. The show Co-Stars Ethan Suplee, Jamie Pressly, Nadine Velazquex, and that guy from the OfficeMax commercials Eddie Steeples.
The Bad: I know that Comedy Central is probably feeling the effects from their post Chappelle Hangover, so I can see where they might be in a transitional period. But, in my opinion, if you are a television executive you should stay away from Adam Carolla at all cost. A few weeks ago, probably due to my insomnia or waiting to touch myself to late night "Skinamax", I caught "Too Late with Adam Carolla". I have to say, this guy is as funny as a prison rape, which makes me wonder how he got this gig. Usually the audience will work with you and give you "pity laughter" even if you suck, but this miserable bastard is so unfunny that the show is filled with uncomfortable pauses from the audience.(I know that sound, its the same sound I hear after I tell a lover, "That was great, you can go now, I don't believe in reciprocity) I don't know what executives' body part Mr. Carolla had to put his mouth on to get said gig, but I don't think a mouth-hug exists that is so good for him to keep his job.
