It's the same old story
12 November 2008 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

This episode starts in a different way with Earl trying to finally fix the problem for stealing a car from a girl who only has one leg, before the traditional opening credits. Actually is the second time we can see something about this point of the list but is not time yet to finally see how Earl tries to fix this problem. So suddenly the new objective of Earl is to help his father for be the mayor because sometime ago he ruined the election that his father was winning.

In this case will be the same old story but Earl realize that even if his father would win the new election, he can't erase him from the list because he was a real headache for his father so is going to take some more time and more dedication.

I liked this episode but I think it could be much more better since is the very first time that we can see the parents of Earl and Randy but still the flashbacks are hilarious, specially when Randy is dressed like a nun.
