Season three of "My Name is Earl" was not all it should've been. The idea of Earl in prison sounds interesting and like something that should've yieled great comedy, but, as it turns out, not so much. You could tell even the producers knew it wasn't going to work, cause they moved quickly to get Earl out of prison. Sadly, due to the problems with season three, season four's ratings were less than great, and so we have what might be the final season of this wonderful show.
If the show does go down, at least it goes down on a high note. While not as good as season one, it was as good as season two. Earl began to refocus on finishing off list items, we got the full story behind Darnell and had a fun guest appearance by Betty White, who makes everything better. We also got to see more background stories on our favorite supporting charactes, which is always good.
Sadly the show ended its season on a cliffhanger. Not a good thing to do unless you know for sure the network is picking you up for the next season. Still, there is some hope. The show is produced by 20th Century Fox, so with luck the program will find a new home on Fox or possibly ABC. One can hope.
Meantime, at least we'll have the DVDs of this fine season to enjoy!
