When “My Name Is Earl” hit the airwaves a couple of years ago, I thought it was one of the best tv shows to come along in quite a while.
Now…it’s just crude and stupid.
The idea of a show following a guy who wants to make amends for all of the wrongs he’s committed was fresh and smart. For two seasons it was must-see tv in our house. Then the writers put Earl Hickey in prison and the whole show has gone downhill. No longer can we watch this show with our kids because of all of the sexual content.
Tonight’s episode, a re-tread of the “Cops comes to Camden” was tired and unfunny. If this is what we’ll miss with the pending writers strike, it won’t be much of a loss.
