Storyline

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 Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

The Greatest television show ever
4 July 1999 | by lowdownshiftySee all my reviews

Dead at 21 is the best television show ever, it had me hooked from the premere to the finale, great acting, writing, and the most interesting and twisted plot I have ever seen. The finale left me wanting more. Comon MTV show this series along with austin stories again!
