    Randy is the best. He always looks so disheveled, and breathes through his mouth. Makes me laugh just looking at him.

    And this week he had some great lines. Like when he was operating the crane game, trying to get the rat:

    "I'm gonna sneak up on him from behind while he's humping the Grover"

    Agree with just about everything...especially in contrast to the POS that was Four Kings before it!

    Best new show on TV, IMO. And I finally started getting caught up on The Office last night (okay, I watched one episode from September...the one where David Koechner played Carrell's sales pal ("Finchy" in the UK version) and the topic was sexual harrassment...also hilarious. But I'm lovin' Earl a bit more so far).

    I laughed for a full two minutes before I had to stop and explain it to my wife.

    Given what I see she's been in, and being the red-blooded heterosexual male that I am, I'm not sure whether to be proud or ashamed that I had never heard of Jaime Pressly before Earl . But as I've said before, I'm supportive of an Emmy nom for her in this role. She's pitch-perfect in it. Same, of course, for Kristen Bell in Veronica Mars -- but alas, I think the odds of either are quite long.

    I thought that was a dig at me. I'm not embarrassed about my girl crush on Kristen Bell. I am in love with that girl. :D

    Jaime Pressly, on the other hand? Uh, no. She's funny as Joy, but Joy isn't exactly a role that requires a lot of depth as an actress. Jaime does a very good job with the line readings, though, and as a true Southerner, she definitely knows the accent and more importantly, the attitude. I think she has known plenty of Joys in her life and she has her down cold.

    ETA: I've also never understood the "hot babe" attraction of Jaime Pressly, but apparently men thinks she's hot and that's why she continues to get work. Almost all her roles prior to Joy were nothing more than the bimbo or the babe. I guess Joy fits into the "bimbo" category but at least she's funny.

    Did anyone understand Randy's line about Carson Daly?

    I believe it was Carson Daly on TRL who initially introduced Earl to the idea of karma.

    That's absolutely correct.

    But on the other hand, does anyone really need a reason to just say "Stupid Carson Daly?" :D

    Funniest sight gag of the episode: Randy playing dead to get away from the ostrich. :D

    Exactly what I was going to say. Go back for "classy", go forward for "trashy".

    That's one I had to pause after to recover.

    Randy, in a falsetto voice: "I'm not gonna punch you in the nose, big chicken, so I'm just gonna die now, ok?" (can't remember the exact quote, but it's close).

    Like I said, I've seen her in several other things so I know what she looks like, but I just don't think she's pretty. She has a great figure, but I think she has a weird nose and looks like a duck and is sort of "low rent" looking. Of course YMMV. She seems to be considered a "hot babe" by the male population in general b/c otherwise, she wouldn't keep getting work that requires her to play the role of "hot babe." That was my point -- her previous jobs generally required her to do nothing more than be the bimbo or the babe.

    This is the first time I've ever seen her display anything that resembles acting talent. I thought she was abysmal in that TV show about Olympic athletes and she wasn't very good in Jack & Jill either. But Joy seems like a good fit for her b/c she's doing a great job with the role. Not that it requires her to play depth or subtext or anything, but she has decent timing and she definitely has the attitude down pat. And the "low rent" look certainly fits the character.

    And after getting bitten by the rat, "Maybe I should have let him finish his business with Grover."

    I'd make sure the bag over her head is soundproof- no problem!
