You’ll know the name Earl by the end of this show

Sylvia Elmquist, Reporter

I have recently finished the series “My Name is Earl” on Hulu, a four-season comedy about an ex-crook who makes a list of all the bad things he has done hoping that karma will make his life better. This series follows Earl and his brother Randy making up for all the bad things while dealing with his crazy ex-wife Joy.

The cast did a good job of portraying the stereotypical, over-the-top, rude, and under-educated characters. I really liked the writing and I enjoyed the inside jokes that fly under the radar until you’re familiar with the show. 

This show has a recurring theme of karma. “Do bad things – bad things will happen,” is said often throughout the series. Some may pick up on this moral and use it in their daily life. I think this series is primarily for teens and adults. I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys a lighthearted comedy, keeping in mind is carries an MPAA rating of TV-14. I would rate this 4 out of 5 stars and was sad it ended on a cliffhanger. Fans of this show may also enjoy “Raising Hope,” made by the same people, which includes several references to “My Name is Earl”.
