Claymation EarlIf you happened to see My Name is Earl last night, I hope you thought of us. It was the hippie episode with Christian Slater, and it was great. You should watch NBC’s My Name is Earl two-minute recap of last night’s episode to catch up if you didn’t catch it last night.

Here’s my summary: Earl (Jason Lee) & Randy (Ethan Suplee) stole an air conditioner from a pot-head (Slater) a while ago. When they go to return it, Slater has turned hippie and is living in a commune off the grid. He doesn’t want the A/C anymore, so suggests that Earl & Randy stay there for a week to learn off-grid life. Along the way, they learn about global warming, and Earl is totally freaked out. When he comes back home, he starts riding a bike, and even buys CFL light bulbs, reusable hemp bags for shopping, and shampoo that hasn’t been tested on animals. Earl says, “I feel bad for those lab animals running around with dirty hair,” but feels good about helping the environment.

Big Yellow Taxi starts playing in the background as Earl realizes that everyone else around him is hurting the environment. Later, he watches the news and learns that China is having a big effect on global warming. To that he says, “What am I supposed to do, convince everybody in China to ride bicycles?”

After that, Earl has a meltdown. Christian Slater’s character tells him, “you can’t think globally, you need to think locally.”

Great job Earl!! We loved it!!
