Goofs

Earl pleads guilty to a felony he didn't commit, saying that since Joy has two strikes and he has none it makes more sense. However Earl has previously assaulted a police officer twice, both times costing his father the election for mayor. The judge seems to be unaware of this as well, giving Earl a relatively light sentence for kidnapping and wrongful imprisonment. See more »

Quotes

Earl: [on having to leave their hotel room] Yeah, we did have some good times here. The gas leak was scary, though.
Randy: It wasn't that bad. We slept through most of it.

Use of Animals
31 August 2020 | by marieinkpenSee all my reviews

I'd really like to know if Darnell really smashed that crab with a hammer? My Name is Earl uses a lot of animals, and I have never yet read a message at the end to say that no animals were harmed, or that animal action was monitored by American Humane. Personally I do not want to see violence towards animals whether it is simulated or not. Why is this sort of thing still viewed as appropriate for comedy?
