    OKay, so I LOVE My Name is Earl. But I can never admit to anyone that I LOVE it because everyone I know thinks that it is stupid and has the ability to slowly lower one's intellegence upon viewing.

    Come on, I can't be crazy, right? Does anyone else think My Name is Earl is brilliant?

    I liked the first couple years, but the season set in prison really killed the show for me. It messed with the show's theme too much and I lost interest.

    I liked it, but it isn't a must watch for me by any means.

    I watch it every Thursday nights, and I laugh and enjoy myself.

    However, the next day I won't remember anything about the episode I just saw. Really, I don't understand how someone could hate this show. I think it's harmless feel-good comedy.

    The show is great. I prefer season 1 as it had a sense of innocent naievete that the following seasons don't seem to have grasped, but its still a wonderful show.

    F the haters in the A!

    Love it. I kind of gave up watching halfway through the series that took place in the jail. 4 kept shuffling around the timeslots and I eventually gave up trying to catch it.

    i like it, and yeah its cheap feel good fun really. plus i like the fact the overall message is do well onto others and good things will happen for you. sadly i barely pay attention to the tv any more so i dont watch this much when its barely shown on tv here.

    I used to like it, but then it went down hill and I haven't watched it since. I think it occurred when Alyssa Milano started. And then Earl went into a comma or whatever from hit by the car.......again.

    Yeah I stopped after a while, but I just got back into it and it has gotten pretty good.

    I like it, again.

    The first season was awesome and I loved it and season 2 wasn't bad. But I didn't watch season 3 at all because the prison thing was pretty stupid. However, when they started promoting season 4 with "The return of the list", I was happy and rightfully so. This season has been just as good as the first one.

    I used to watch it all the time, I loved it. I just kind of stopped watching it, though. Then again I rarely watch TV anyway for some reason now.

    Watch it and love it. One of my faves.

    Liked last week on the missing Crab Shack owner (part 1) when Michael Waltrip discussed the similarities between himself and and Ernie (the owner). "We both compete against brothers in the same field. My brother Darrel races and Ernie's brother Quizno invented the toasted sub." :lol
