More Ed

I met another Ed fan last night — I’ll leave her name out of this in case she doesn’t want to be outed — which was nice, because I thought I was the only one.

Last night’s episode was interesting. I won’t say “bold” or “daring” because it was a trick — a faux documentary being shot about the real faux characters — that has been used before, most prominently by M*A*S*H.

That said, it was an interesting way of dealing with the “new car smell is gone” aspect of Carol and Ed’s relationship, especially as doing it otherwise would probably have been either boring or blechy or both. I continue to be intrigued with the “Ed’s best friend” character — he’s probably got the most untapped depth on the show, and some of it came out last night.

I realize that this is getting dangerously close to becoming a soap opera chat blog. Just be glad you caught me 10 years after my addiction to All My Children — back then I would have been waxing on about Adam Chandler and Erica Kane and Jackson Montgomery. You would have hated it.

Sadly I too recall each of the mentioned AMC character’s faces.

I was always partial to Phoebe Tyler Wallingford myself.

Geez…reading about your engagement with ED reminds me of the days when you dropped everything for thirtysomething

Isn’t the actor who plays the friend Mike on Ed married to PEI native Claire Rankin?
