    Plot Outline: A ne'er do well wins $100,000 in the lottery and decides to right all the wrongs from his past with his newfound realization.
    Plot: Earl is a low-life who buys a winning lottery ticket, only to get hit by a car, losing the ticket in the process. He then realizes in the hospital that his bad luck is the result of karma in which fate punishes him for all the rotten things he's ever done in his life; therefore, he then decides to dedicate his life to making amends to all the people he has hurt in his life.

    Movie Quotes:“>repeated line]
    Darnell Turner: Hey, Earl!
    Earl: Hey, Crabman!


    Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    The “Amigos de Garcia” production company card in the closing credits features a different friend of Executive Producer 'Gregory Thomas Garcia'  every week.

    Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Revealing mistakes: In the scenes where pregnant “Joy” is in the shower, the body double is wearing flesh colored panties, just barely visible at the bottom of the screen. This goof is likely not visible on CRT televisions that over-scan.

    Trivia: There are 10 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • The items in Earl's list shown during the opening sequence read as follows: – 56: Stole Liquor from Liquor store – 57: Told Joy Dan Dodd messed himself on the (rest cut out of frame) – 58: Fixed a high school football game – 59: Everything I did to Dad – 60: Pulled fire alarm – 61: Stole Mom's car (but I gave it back) – 62: Faked death to break up with a girl – 63: Wasted electricity – 64: Spray Painted The bridge – 65: Cost Dad the election – 66: Let mice out at school play – 67: Stole beer from a golfer – 68: Blew up mailboxes – 69: Cheated on School tests a lot
    • Part of the show's ad campaign before the series aired included billboard ads with Earl's picture and one of the items from his list printed on the billboard (i.e. “Cheated my way through the seventh grade…twice”, “Stole a car from a one-legged girl”, “Faked my death to break up with a girl” etc.), with the tag line “…I'm sorry”.
    • Every time Earl's picture (or otherwise graven image) is taken, his eyes are closed. This is considered to be a nod to the movie Forrest Gump in which every photograph of Forrest shows him with his eyes closed.
