Storyline

Ed Stevens is a contracts lawyer at a high-profile New York City firm. Around the same time he splits with his wife (she slept with a mailman), he makes a single error in punctuation when going over a contract; and because of the resulting financial loss to the firm, he's fired. Despondent, he heads back to his (small) hometown of Stuckeyville -- 'Anytown', USA. There he realises he's been missed by a lot of friends whom he's missed; and he sees Carol, the girl he'd adored in high school. Swept up in roiling emotions, Ed buys the local bowling alley on a whim, moves to Stuckeyville, and determines to win Carol's heart. His horizons broaden as he settles once more in Stuckeyville, and the series itself settles into a charming, funny, often serious slice-of-life series focused not solely on Ed but on the lovable ensemble cast of people who live and work with him in Stuckeyville.

Can't get much better than this
24 May 2001 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

It's hard to believe that it's the Dave Letterman team who is behind this production. I like Letterman, but I had no idea the writers could reach this high.

Tom Cavanagh plays the big-time, big-city lawyer Ed Stevens who gets fired from his job and finds out that his wife is unfaithful to him in only one day. This makes him move back home to Stuckeyville where he begins to pursue Carol who he had a secret crush on in high-school. Besides Julie Bowen's Carol we also get to meet a whole gallery of interesting characters.

The best thing about "Ed" is the relaxed, realistic and humane style of the stories and characters. The writing is just superb. There aren't better TV shows at the moment, I guarantee you that!
