It is always a big blow when one of your favourite shows is cancelled, and even more so when the makers are not even given the chance to film a proper ending.

That's what happened to My Name Is Earl fans earlier this year, when it was announced that there would be no follow-up to this, the comedy's fourth season. As a result, the show as a whole finishes without a conclusion, which is a shame for a comedy that was always consistently entertaining, albeit rarely brilliant. As always, this season follows the attempts of loveable Earl (Jason Lee) to gain karma by righting wrongs from his past, and the real appeal lies in the performances. Lee is perfect, and the surrounding cast excellent, most notably Jaime Pressly as his ex-wife. A show that will be missed.
