Excellent episode. It is one of my favorite's.
10 December 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Now I am a huge fan of My Name is Earl and am one of the 2 people in the class I am in who watches it. This episode features Earl trying to make up for him making fun of other country's accents and languages. The Episode is hilarious and Earl grows into his role further as with Joy and Randy. This episode is one of the funniest episodes of the 54 I have seen only beaten by the airport episodes and the episode where Earl first goes to jail and a few after that. Overall the episode is just a plus for the series and Jason Lee rocks hard as Earl. I rate this episode 94% and believe me buy every episode of my name is Earl. Thats my 2 cents by LacTheBod.
