Second Skin

8/10

The re-arranged situation of the characters' lives was a tremendous boon for My Name Is Earl, offering writers the chance to go wild and in this - and the following episode in particular - they deliver in spades. Sure, the plot feels fresh again, but it's the characters that benefit even more. Freed from his usual company, Randy is the biggest winner here, his dim-wittedness reaching a hilarious all-time low. However, Earl, Joy and Darnell create a laugh-riot with the ladies of the Turners' new neighborhood.

"Okay, you've said your piece, now I'll say mine." Great. It's The Subjective Me messing my objective review. Again. "Objective, schmobjective. The jokes are fun, okay? Let's not analyze why. I've never understood why humor should be analyzed. It's *humor*. It works or not. Academics can study their *****. Alright, lets concentrate on the *important* things. Like, how hot Andrea Parker looks even though she's about 49 when they filmed this. She was the Ice Queen of Ice Queens in The Pretender. Even the geek in the show had fantasy dreams of her while sleeping. Damn, makes me want to watch the series all over again. Except that it isn't available! And if I must say something objective, she's since proved to be quite a comedienne. It's a win-win! Seeing Morgan Fairchild looking ageless at 59 however, scares the s*** out of me. Surely she has made a deal with the devil? Or is it CGI manipulation? Hell, this was made while Avatar was being made - maybe the Morgan we see is a CGI'd performance capture, or whatever. Anyways, love the episode and it goes without saying that Jaime Pressly is as hot as ever. And earned her Emmy, if I must say something objective in closing. Another win-win!"
