Conservation and Consumption on Cable
2 June 2008 | by (Baltimore MD, USA) – See all my reviews

Season One: Conservatives of previous generations found prosperity through frugality, but in today's culture, conservatism and conservation share only a linguistic root. Despite his success as an actor, Ed Begley, Jr. has conscientiously sought to organize his life around conservation and simple living. With his wife, Rachelle Carson, as an amusing counterpoint, Begley gives us a very non-threatening introduction to living a 'greener' lifestyle. You won't find heavy discussions of population overshoot, energy uncertainty or climate change, but you will be exposed to new ideas (good for you) and new products (good for HGTV).

Season Two: As in the first season, successful actor Ed Begley, Jr. plays himself as an average Joe dedicated to conservation and simple living. His wife, Rachelle Carson, plays herself as an average Jane that would rather not think about energy one way or the other, mugging her aggravation relentlessly as Ed preaches conservation. Instead of scaring you with talk of climate change, Living With Ed serves up a mix of simple energy-saving tips (the low-hanging fruit) and pricey new technology.

We enjoyed the first season, but after the first two episodes, all we've seen is Ed and Rachelle ooh and aah over Cheryl Tiegs' airy Bel Air hillside estate, and swoon over Larry Hagman's opulent 25,000 SF hillside mansion. To his credit, Hagman has incorporated $750K worth of solar panels, and donates energy to help nearby working class families, but Ed fails to point out that such an immense house for two people, even with a household staff, is extravagantly inefficient.

I'm hoping this series doesn't become Lifestyles of the Rich and Greenwashed.
