Critic Reviews for My Name Is Earl Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

Most of all, "Earl" may have more heart than any other network comedy.

Oct 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The second funniest show tomorrow night is "Earl," which is equally tasteless and out of line.

Oct 2, 2018 | Full Review…

There's no dip in quality for this second season as Earl's efforts to right every wrong are occasionally disrupted by ex-wife Joy's...arrest and upcoming trial.

Oct 2, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

"My Name is Earl" is a series on the way down, if not out.

Oct 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Sharp, well-observed and consistently funny, My Name Is Earl is a daft treat.

Oct 3, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The series returns eager to impress, but not over-eager. There's a greater emphasis on developing the characters, especially Earl's ex-wife, Joy.

Oct 3, 2018 | Full Review…

I still enjoy it, but my enthusiasm has mellowed just a little... it feels like they're trying a tad too hard.

May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Whilst it falls short of greatness, particularly as episodes which stray from the ongoing storylines are dogged by déjà vu, My Name is Earl boasts a consistently entertaining line in tongue-in-cheek political incorrectness.

Oct 2, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

This season proved that the show wasn't a one-trick pony and that its characters were far more realized and versatile than those you tend to find in situation comedies.

Oct 2, 2018 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

Earl is a great show because while it does mercilessly poke fun at lower class trailer park dwelling rednecks, the level of heart within the series, which is often displayed by Earl...adds a nice balance to the series.

Oct 2, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There is not a weak link in the entire cast. The leads are hilarious, and when they tire, the supporting cast takes over.

Audience Reviews for My Name Is Earl: Season 2

  • Sep 16, 2019
    My Name is Earl loses its way in Season 2 and gets a little too preachy and cartoonish. Pretty criminal turned do-gooder Earl Hickey continues to make up for his past wrongs, but he soon gets pulled into his ex-wife's scheme to sell a stolen truck and works to help her beat the wrap. Earl's moral compass goes kind of wonky as he convinces a friend to become a stripper, helps Catalina and Randy pull off a fraudulent Green Card marriage, and services as a wingman for a French lothario who comes to Camden to sleep with a bunch of women. Yet the shows gets all sanctimonious about treating people with abnormalities as "freaks" or cleaning up the environment or gambling (feeling more like a "the more to know" PSA). Still, a lot of the humor works and delivers plenty of laughs; though the characters are becoming more buffoonish. Also, the show tries a few format changes to keep things fresh, like a Cops crossover episode and a Claymation episode. Plus, a ton of guest stars are featured, including Burt Reynolds, Roseanne Barr, Jenny McCarthy, Christian Slater, John Leguizamo, John Waters, Norm MacDonald, and even Dog the Bounty Hunter. Season 2 of My Name is Earl is real hit-and-miss, but there's more good than bad.
