Storyline

Earl begins his jail sentence and discovers that life is not easy behind bars. He persistently tries to find out the best approach to surviving in his new environment. Meanwhile, Joy finds out, after a few failed attempts, the perfect gift to pay Earl back for taking her spot in jail comes in the form of taking care of Randy, who is also having a hard time adjusting to his new life without Earl. In prison, Earl is sought out by a bully, who has lived most of his life in jail as a result of Young Earl's mischief. This new life for Earl behind bars must mean years of bad karma or does it?

Trivia

The medic who pulls the shiv out of Earl's arm has a medic patch on his lab coat showing the Caduceus, twin snakes entwining a winged staff. The Caduceus started out as the Staff of Hermes and was a symbol of commerce. The single snake entwining a plain staff was the Rod of Asclepius and symbolized medicine. In 1902 some nameless doofus got those two mixed up and mistakenly made the Caduceus the symbol of the US Army Medical Corp. Today most of the USA still gets it wrong, while most other countries get it right. See more »
