I was thinking about this really cool and quirky 50's based sitcom and am glad to see that I am not the only one that found this show hilarious! I was disappointed at how fast HBO pulled the plug on this show. ( On this note, I was also dismayed about Mind of the Married Man getting the ax as well.) Earl and Emmett were always getting into mischief that fit the day. One of my main memories of the show was the "carnival" that I believe Earl set up for a birthday. I remember Earl asking the "carnival" owner how he was so successful at these type of shows and him telling Earl, "I just bring out a pony, tie a monkey to a tree and see what happens." (Or something to that effect.) It floored me! I am old enough to remember a few cheesy carnivals in the late 60's, early 70's that weren't much more than what they described in the show. I also remember the "sickle and hammer" cake design and Earl accused of being a commie because he liked Russian vodka and they had some "great f'in borscht!" It really hit on the absurdity and innocence of the day. HBO dropped the ball in canceling this one.
