* UnfortunateImplications:
** The reason behind Big and Little Chubby's AxCrazy behavior being [[spoiler: an overflow of testosterone and having Little Chubby do a HeelFaceTurn when his [[GroinAttack balls a damaged.]]]]
** More infamously, in the season three finale, it is shown that Earl's karma is allegedly the reason the current/former girls in his life, treat him badly. Not only does this imply that a woman's temperament and personality is dependent on their man, but it also gives {{JerkAss}}es like [[TheScrappy Bil]][[{{Yandere}} ly]] a [[KarmaHoudini free pass for their own mean, selfish, ungrateful, and even sadistic behavior.]]

* BaseBreaker: Joy. Some people think she's hilarious and has some redeeming qualities, others think she's a horrible {{jerkass}} who never really develops and stays the same selfish bitch from start to finish.

* TheWoobie: Most of the characters at various points (Joy when she loses her dream of fame, Randy when Earl tells him he doesn't stand a chance with Catalina, Earl and his dad when they go on a crying jag over their adulterous wives, and so on), but most often? Joy's kids.

* TearJerker: Randy crying over Earl's comatose body wondering if he "crossed enough off his list to get into heaven".
** Earl's reaction to seeing Earl Jr. in "Guess Who's Coming Out of Joy" counts, even more so since up to that point, he was incredibly excited about having his own son.
** The sequence with Earl taking the fall for Joy and going to jail at the end of season 2 is thoroughly depressing. The commentary points out one particularly sad moment: when Earl is led off, Randy instinctively follows him only to be sent back.
** Earl almost dying in the hospital.



** In the Season 2 finale, Earl goes to prison and discovers that Ralph is his cellmate. In the very first scene of Season 3, Ralph escapes through a hole in the wall without having the smallest interaction with Earl.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Was Randy just a simpleton, going along with his brother's schemes and not in full control of his actions, or is he a fully aware person, who joined in on his brother's antics, because he wanted too.

It doesn't help that DependingOnTheWriter, Randy swings between kinda slow but competent and borderline mental retardation.

** Earl and Randy sleep in the same bed. Their usual wakup routine includes Earl announcing to Randy some variation of "Wakey wakey, hands off snakey." In one episode Earl announces "Rise and shine... [[OhCrap hands of mine!]]"

* BrokenAesop: Some people find the Aesop of Witch Lady to be this; having Earl put away his list for a day so people will stop calling him 'Karma Guy' in an episode about not letting labels define you.
