The season delivers it's first classic
23 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

After a terrible start to Season 3, the season delivers it's first classic.

It stars Kyle, who is an excellent actor and a dimwitted criminal. The cop following him ends up handcuffing himself after getting shot.

The episode is purely entertaining, fun and gory. It had one of the best endings, with Kyle getting eaten alive. It was hilarious and icky at the same time.

One thing that I cannot understand is why the hell Earl didn't decapitate the cop's hand. Would have been a lot smarter than to carry him for 6 miles. But nobody's perfect.
