NBC 2000

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 realizes 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.

To this day, Ed is my favorite show. It is the perfect blend of a weekly story and a continuing drama. Each week Ed has a court case to deal with, meanwhile he has the bowling alley to run with Phil and Shirley to contend with. And he always has a new way to try and win Carol's heart. On top of all that, I love the relationship between Ed and his best friend Dr. Burton, who has his own family and a surly boss to deal with. It is exactly the right amount of funny without being silly (well, sometimes it's silly but that's OK) and it's just so brilliantly written. All the characters are so real, and having grown up in my own version of stuckeyville, I totally recognize the feel and attitude of a small town. The acting is first rate, especially Tom (I Am Canadian) Cavanaugh. I'm grateful at least that a show this good lasted more than one year, but I would have gladly watched it for ten. I still watch the whole series at least once a year, even though my copy is burned onto DVD from my HDD recorder, and some of the episodes are even captured from VHS. I would pay virtually any price for NBC and Worldwide Pants to finally get the show professionally released, even if just in standard definition. Unfortunately, all the music playing in the background at the bowling alley would need to be cleared and paid for. The producer's just can't justify the expense. Such a shame...
