    I feel like my IQ is dropping every time I have to watch this show with my fiance. The people are ridiculously stupid and Earl is just simply dumb and unrealistic.

    My Name Is Earl is not a stupid sitcom - that is what makes its sexist and homophobic jokes so maddening.

    The NBC sitcom is so unpretentious and original, it will probably win you over on its own sweet merits.

    The casting is for awesome, flat-out too-good-for-TV acting.
