Beautiful TV: Ed

Ed was an amazing, heart-warming comedy-drama that aired between 2000 - 2004. Starring Tom Cavanagh and Julie Bowen, it told the story of Ed Stevens, a New York lawyer who loses his job, and finds out his wife is cheating on him, all on the same day.

So, he does what any man would do in this situation - goes back to his home town of Stuckeyville, buys a bowling alley, and falls in love (all over again) with his high-school crush.

Ed was (and is) a truly beautiful series, featuring riduculously grand romantic gestures (including the time when Ed wears a full-blown suit of armour!), life-affirming stories, beautiful friendships, laugh-out-loud hilarity, and, even though I've said it before in this same sentence, pure romance.

It was such a shame when they decided to finish this fantastic series, and an even bigger shame that they still haven't released any DVDs (and I'm not sure they ever will).

I've included the promo for the first series of Ed below, and, if you're interested, you can browse for lots more Ed-related goodness.
