Earl says that Johnny is the first person that he couldn't cross off his list. But in an earlier episode, he put Neglected Randy on his list, which he never planned on crossing off because he would never stop making up his neglection of Randy. See more »

Johnny, you hardly knew ya

Sweet Johnny!

The contrast between Johnny's sunny personality and the darkness of his situation makes this episode particularly bittersweet.

That Earl can accept that there are things he never will be able to make up for is a sign of maturation, if only slight maturation.

Imaginative story-telling and meaningful comedy-writing.

Too bad the series was canceled.

Sweet Johnny!

The 10-line minimum for a review seems arbitrary, as if bloated reviews are preferred.
