Back in the early 2000’s, one of my favorite television shows was NBC’s Ed, which was about a recently divorced lawyer (played by Tom Cavanagh), who leaves the big city of New York for the small town of Stuckeyville. Once there, he buys a bowling alley and establishes a law practice. Each episode dealt with a case that Ed took on and many episodes featured a whimsical $10 bet between Ed and his best friend Mike. Here’s an example:
It’s a crime that this show isn’t on DVD, but I know this has to do with music licensing issues since the episodes featured some great musical performances interwoven into the storyline. Besides Cavanagh, the show featured many notable actors in their first major roles including Julie Bowen, Micheal Ian Black, Justin Long and Ginnifer Goodwin. I also seem to recall a website inspired by these $10 bets, which I could not find for this post. For more on Ed, click the Ed Wikipedia page. Have a great weekend!
