Have you ever wondered what the world of Earl Hickey smelled like? Beer? Sweat? Flannel? Soon enough, we'll get to find out: NBC is putting out special "laugh-and-sniff" cards before the May 3 episode of "My Name is Earl."
I haven't seen a really elaborate TV gimmick since all those shows tried going 3-D in the late '90s, so I'm weirdly excited about this; it's like Smell-o-Vision for the small screen. The cards will be available in that week's TV Guide.
Of course, what NBC isn't saying is what smells will be included. The episode (which will be part of yet another super-sized comedy night) is called "Get a Real Job," and Earl will apparently be doing just that at an appliance store. Will you be scratching-and-sniffing along with "Earl"? And are there smells of Camden County that you just wouldn't want to experience for yourself?
