    Default VH on My Name is Earl

    Did anyone watch Earl last night? There was a funny reference to Van Halen. Seems Earl's new bride (Alyssa Milano) wanted to put some Van Halen on the jukebox at the Crab Shack and Earl told her to put on Runnin with the Devil and she said no, she wanted the real Van Halen (or something to that effect) with Sammy Hagar. Then later on, Earl found her reading "I am 55" by Sammy Hagar. By the end of the episode, Earl was going to dump her. No VH tunes in the show, though.
    Could this be magic?

    HA, yeah saw that, (actually heard it) was layin' on the couch reading Val's book.....very funny reference!!

    There was a part also where he said "it's not about whether my Van Halen is better than your Van Halen" in the context of the conversation he was having with her about her integrity (to do with "the list"). Made me laugh.....

    A season or two ago Earl and Co. reformed a band for whatever reason and played the Crab Shack, he crossed of no. 51 and 50 off the list. There was another VH refrence in there too.
    One of the writers must be a VH freak,,, or likes to mock 'em as writers tend to do.

    I choose to believe that the writers are fans. Makes me feel less "alone" in the real world (of make-believe TV lol).

    In post #11 in the following thread, Hagar4Life says Greg Garcia is a friend of his, and is a VH fan. That's why all the VH references. http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/funn....html?p=771380

    Strangely, if you watch much TV, VH is mentioned quite often... I've heard them refrenced on CSI a couple of times and other shows - that my Saturday morning brain (while listening to my daughter practice her Baritone ) can't remember. I use the term practice lightly... more like honking....think scared geese

    Right after the VH references regarding the jukebox, Earl was observing "couples" at other tables sharing chips. Although it would never happen, it would have been funny to see Sam and Dave sharing chips at a table...

    I think that's a commentary on how huge Van Halen was in their prime. The people writing these shows, and the characters they're writing for all came up in those VH glory days.

    I loved that! She said, "I'm going to go put some Van Halen on the jukebox." I said, "THAT'S my girl!" Then she said, the real VH with Sammy. I said, "Oh dear." LOL! I love VH with Sammy, but good gracious.

    Gotta' love a VH reference on TV, in any case.

    They made a reference to VH on that fairly new CBS show about the real brainy nerd types who live next to the hot blond. It's on Monday evenings before "How I met your mother." The hot blond came in their apartment and asked a question about DLR and Van Halen.

    They made reference to Sammy Hagar on SportsCenter last night while doing the basketball highlights. because the score was 55-55 at halftime.


    That bit on Earl was really funny BTW.
