As much as I enjoyed season one of this series, I hated season three. It's like the producers decided we wanted to see the characters we grew to like be abused for 22 minutes a week. Or, thrown around unconscious like several weeks of "weekend at Bernie" gags. Even worse, they decided to parody bad sitcoms for a BIG chunk of several episodes - in the end, meaning you were watching bad sitcoms instead of EARL.
This season was so bad, it made me apathetic about even picking up season two: I just didn't care anymore.

"I was gung-ho about seeing this season after having purchased and absolutely LOVING the first two. That said, I need to make it clear here Season 3 does not live up to the previous 2. Maybe it is just the edge was missing.
Earl season 3 was not by any means terrible, definitely worth seeing once or twice, but it was far from the barrel of laughs that seasons 1 and 2 provided.
If you are an Earl fan and NEED to get the whole collection, definitely buy it, but for most people, I think that renting season 3 will more than suffice."
Big let down

"Season 3 is a drastic drop in the writing of the show. I had high hopes for the prison storylines, hoping it would be a comedic version of OZ. It had it's moments but was a big let down for me, missed a great opportunity.
It gets much worse though when Earl is out of prison. I was a huge fan of season 1 and 2, then this season seems like it written by different people. Most of the story is really terrible and the gags aren't funny.
Did they decide not to do commentaries because they knew the season was a stinker ? If you already have seen the show there is no reason in buying this DVD set, it has not one interesting extra.
I hope season 4 is better, or Earl will be a flash in the pan as far as I'm concerned."
