Last night I was watching the blooper reel and the behind the scenes documentary of My name is Earl (NBC). If you haven’t seen this comedy show, then you have missed out on a lot. (wiki-link)
The show stars Jason Lee, who actually only did movies and had some reservations in doing television (he also did the voice of Syndrome in The Incredibles), Ethan Suplee, Jaime Pressly, …
I think it is a very funny show, about a no good kind of guy who after he wins a lottery ticket, gets run over, looses the ticket and decides it’s a sign. Karma: if you do good things, good things will happen to you. So Earl makes a list of all the wrongs he ever did, and tries to make them right.
The scripts are really funny. But it are really the actors who take it to a whole new level. And the guest stars are fantastic as well: Giovanni Ribisi, Juliette Lewis, Beau Bridges, …
Being a big fan of DVD extra’s – I just had to watch them on this box. There is even an alternative version of the pilot (1ste episode – for those who have no clue). Where instead of redeeming his wrongs, he wants payback: he makes a list of all those who did him wrong.
I just can’t wait until they air the second season here on tv. I know the box is available, but first I’ll see if that season is worth it.
