My Name Is Earl

Now this is an offbeat and funny sitcom. In "My Name Is Earl", Jason Lee plays a lowlife redneck who loses a lottery ticket and becomes convinced that his luck won't change until he makes amends for all his bad deeds. If the show's premiere is any indication, this promises to be one of the funniest and decidedly different comedies on television. It will also be interesting to watch Jason Lee over the course of an entire television season.

The 40 Year Old Virgin

The strength of the The 40 Year Old Virgin is that it resists the trappings and low denominator junk humor of a crude sex comedy and instead is surprisingly insightful, with a good heart and a lovable hero. Definitely recommended.

Young Jedi

The original Star Wars feature film premiered in May 1977. At the time, I was six years old and just reaching the age when I could sit still and appreciate a two hour movie.
