The daughter of a brilliant but mentally disturbed mathematician, recently deceased, tries to come to grips with her possible inheritance: his insanity. Complicating matters are one of her father's ex-students who wants to search through his papers and her estranged sister who shows up to help settle his affairs.
Was I the only one viewing this kooky show? I absolutely adored these two guys! I discovered it channel surfing. The ideas that someone came up with for these guys to do were as entertaining as any episode of Jackass, which I also like. Was it my hopeful imagination, or was the sexual tension between these two palpable? It would almost seem that they were lovers or at least in love with each other without realizing it. They definitely wanted to play to a gay audience when one of their "humiliations" was to have a real tongue thrashing kiss that lasted more than a few seconds. Each of these guys is sexy in his own way. Even if it was a bit lopsided in that Ed was always the perpetrator of misdeeds toward Spencer, it was delightful because it revealed that Ed was deliciously evil, whilst Spenny was the ever-forbearing subject of Ed's delight. This difference in personality also contributed to the sexual tension between these two. Yet, the overarching theme of the show was the typical competitive nature of the male ego. Regardless of one's view of the sexual nature of the show, it was suspenseful and entertaining to see what would happen next, and both of them being attractive in different ways made the show delightful. An additional ironic twist is that Ed being the fairer haired, and Spenny being the dark haired, the "dark" role is assigned to Ed, whilst the kinder role is born by Spencer. I would love to see this show continued, but apparently it has reached its conclusion. I will happily search for these two boys in any other roles in which they may appear!
