Storyline

Earl is still comatose and Randy tries to make up for ruining their parents' vacation. In a long flashback, we see Earl and Randy as they're supposed to house-sit while their parents go on vacation. When they find a duffel bag filled with marijuana in their truck after shopping for booze with Joy, they decide to sell it. Back at the liquor store to buy some tiny bags to put the pot in, the guy who stashed the duffel bag in the their truck spots them, holds them at gun point and demands they take him to where the bag is so he can get his marijuana back. When they return to their parents' place they find that their parents are home because their flight has been delayed. And to make matters worse, their dad has burned the drugs!

An episode that made me curious
16 February 2019 | by zimmerblakeSee all my reviews

While understanding basic sitcom shows like this have to be "innocent" enough for a family to watch, My Name is Earl always tried to be more accurate about the taboo things in society. For this reason I was confused with this episode as they framed marijuana as some crazy drug that causes people to hallucinate and lose their mind. After doing some research I found out that this episode was one of the first in the show's history for a slightly earlier time slot when the show ran on NBC. This earlier time slot was considered part of a "family hour" so the writers must have been pressured to feint innocence. They couldn't have used a hard drug like acid (which would have been more in line with the actions of those that were "high") but they also couldn't have people smoke weed and be normal as this wouldn't make the drug out to be bad.
