Well … my theory, wild as it might sound, is that this episode, which btw I really enjoyed, is someone’s dream. Don’t beat me up, please! It’s just that it had so many happy endings (heh), plus there’s the whole Randy and the bird thing. Gotta chuckle about that, 'cause we all know that Randy is scared to death of birds, all birds! I’m just not sure whose dream it is; maybe Randy’s - although the whole bird thing you’d think would be a nightmare for him, and not fit in with the rest of the happiness of the episode. It could also be what Billie was dreaming while she was in a coma. I dunno.
I did love the episode, though! Frank has a foot fetish, which shouldn’t surprise anyone–dude is totally weird. And where were Earl and Randy’s parents?! I’m hoping we’ll see more of them before the end of the season.
On the other hand, Randy has a childlike need to fiddle with everything and has demonstrated an inability to foresee consequences, like that if he fiddles with the bird’s door the door will open and the bird will get out. Even his mother admitted that Randy is “simple.”
I don’t know. I just watched it on Hulu and I wasn’t all that impressed. I feel that this season, the show has lost its direction. It still has some funny jokes but it feels like they’re lurching back and forth.
Earl’s in prison - Tell some prison jokes - Earl’s out of prison
Earl goes back to being bad - Tell some Earl goes bad jokes - Earl goes back to being good
Earl’s in a coma - Tell some coma jokes - Earl wakes up
Catalina’s a lesbian - Tell some lesbian jokes - Catalina goes straight
Seriously? The jumping up and down thing she does at the strip club? Do guys actually find that erotic?! Seeing someone’s boobs bounce from jumping looks absurd to me, just as would seeing some guy’s penis waggling around while he jogs. I thought that was just one of the jokes of the show is the absurdity of guys finding that attractive.
I take it as purely as setup for the line “I will not jump for Joy.” and then continued as something of a running (?!) gag.
Scenes at Chubby’s presents something of a problem. Can’t do nudity. Can’t even do real stripper clothing. Can’t do a lot of bump and grind stuff. So what does that leave? Plus this is Camden. Apparently there are some guys there who are weird enough to pay for Patty the Daytime Hooker. Wouldn’t you rather watch Catalina jump than spend time with Patty? It’s all relative.
