'Earl' Jumps for Joy! Plus 'CSI' Gets Confusing
NOTE: MY INTERNET IS DOWN, SO THIS WILL BE THE ONLY POST FROM PTR TODAY. BE SURE TO COME BACK MONDAY FOR THOUGHTS ON THIS WEEKEND'S EPISODES OF COLD CASE, THE AMAZING RACE AND DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES.
Catalina jumps, but definitely not for Joy. Not even if Joy were facing tremendous jail time and the only way to bail her out would be for Catalina to jump at Chubby’s strip club. But, she will jump for Earl, especially if he’s completely stressed out from trying to figure out how to help Joy. Something was missing from last night’s episode of My Name is Earl that I couldn’t quite put my finger on and then it hit me -- Earl didn’t cross anything off of his list. He was so busy helping Joy that he didn’t have a chance to work on that list. I missed it, but there were plenty of Joy moments to keep me laughing. I LOVED her fake almost apology to Catalina that turned into a contest over who has a better body. I also loved her hysterical “3 strikes” with the counterfeit money, assaulting an officer and then last week’s Bargain Mart truck heist. You can always count on Joy and Randy to bring the funny, and Randy didn’t disappoint either. We all know that he has a thing for Catalina and he called dibbs on her first, but it seems like Catalina may have a thing for Earl. There could be trouble ahead for the Hickey brothers.
What the flip happened last night on CSI??? Everything was going along really well and I was completely interested in this episode (unlike last week’s premiere), and then it just ends with Grissom examining the back of one of the replica pictures! It looked like a doll’s eye to me, but what the flip does it have to do with who killed the rock star? And since I’m totally confused, who did kill the rock star? I’m still mad at this show for ending like that last night. In fact, we’re not speaking and I’m not sure how long it will be until we are back on good terms. Catherine’s storyline was much better because it came to a logical end. We found out that she wasn’t raped, her daughter was kidnapped, but fine and both incidents were related to Sam. Someone was trying to get back at him by hurting the people he loves. That someone, and wait for it because it’s the one thing that puts the “2” in this 2-parter, was last week’s suicide guy’s partner. Apparently, the two lost $20 million in one of Sam’s land deals. But the really bad news came at the end when the partner gunned down Sam in front of Catherine. Man, this has not been her week!
