Ed would like to be a normal teenager. Unfortunately, Ed has been used for intelligence enhancing research, and is extremely smart as a consequence. Equally unfortunately, the chemicals used in the research are affecting his brain in such a way that he'll be dead on his 21st birthday unless he finds a cure. With this in mind, he escapes from the research facility. The research facility is none too happy about this, and tries to recapture him. Written by
Although I thought this show was in fact quite good, there was a huge lie behind it that was never addressed.
MTV held a contest where the winner would ge their own show, Dead AT 21.
Jack Noseworthy who played the lead was already a working actor. This did in fact fool some ppl for a very short amount of time until they remembered him or heard by word of mouth, this guy was already an actor.
The contest wasn't even fixed, it was a complete lie! Now I think they may have given the winner a 5 minute part in the first episode or a later episode, but this was not in fact the prize promised.
Why MTV turned into such a sleaze ball network I'll never understand other than the ppl who owned it are greedy just like the owners of every other corporation.
