It Takes Two
Praise be for My Name Is Earl. The best thing on TV at the moment by miles. Jason Lee is already awarded Godlike status for his role as Brody in Mallrats. That goes without saying. But he's surpassed himself here, as a hick who discovers karma when his life of bad deeds means he ends up missing out on a 100 grand scratchcard win. So he dedicates his life to righting all the wrongs he has done. And it's pure TV gold. Watch it, now! Well... when it's next on anyway. Fridays on Channel 4, Thursdays on E4, and on NBC in the US of A.
So, here's a special My Name Is Earl tracklist of great tracks just from the first episode!
1. Canned Heat - 'On The Road Again'
2. Jane's Addiction - 'Beat Caught Stealing'
3. DJ EZ Rock & Rob Base - 'It Takes Two' (B-7)
4. Beck - 'Loser'
5. Velvet Underground - 'Walk On The Wild Side'
6. Boston - 'More Than A Feeling'
7. Beck - 'Where It's At'
8. Guns n Roses - 'Sweet Child O Mine'
9. Motley Crue - 'Dr. Feelgood'
10. The Propellerheads Feat. Shirley Bassey - 'History Repeating'
As Tobes said, never before has a show become cult after just one episode. Well, except maybe with South Park. And maybe the Simpsons. Anyway, shut up. File this under "The Quest" and prepare to be hooked.
