After season 3?s crazy Earl-in-prison- and-coma swerves, creator Greg Garcia promises no serious relationships (”We love Alyssa Milano but her character was starting to change the show in a way we didn’t want it to”) and ”more crossing-things- off-the-list stories…. We have an episode with Jenna Elfman where Earl [Jason Lee] and Randy [Ethan Suplee] go to cheerleading camp, because Randy has always had a hidden desire to be a cheerleader.” The former Dharma plays against type: ”Jenna runs the cheerleading camp and in college was attacked by a badger, so she has a mangled face with a dead, milky eye.” Guess Dharma’s karma was unluckier than Earl’s.
