silly, but harmless
1 May 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Wilbur Post (Alan Young) seems like an average person, with a wife named Carol (Connie Hines), a house, and a steady job as an architect, except for one thing: his horse.

As the theme song reminds us: "A horse is a horse, of course, of course..." But Ed is no ordinary equine. He talks, albeit only to his owner (Ed calls Wilbur "the only person worth talking to"). Not only does Ed talk, he causes all sorts of trouble, which always gets pinned on Wilbur. Whether eating Carol's tomatoes or pulling down neighbor Roger Addison's (Larry Keating) TV antenna, that palomino always has something up his sleeve, er...hoof. Oftentimes, Ed will do something around a stranger, causing a lot of confusion for the latter.

As for other aspects of the show, Wilbur somehow always has the worst luck, not even necessarily caused by Ed's tricks. Carol is truly one hot babe. Roger and Kay (Edna Skinner) can fluctuate between sour and good-neighborly. Overall, the show is pretty silly, but it's not doing any harm. I recommend it.
