  • This episode establishes Ed as a former NYC lawyer, newly fired and separated from his wife, who moves back to his hometown of Stuckeyville. Ed's inspiration to return (and buy the bowling alley where he worked as a teenager) comes after a run-in with himoreless

    The pilot of ED is a bit wierd in the sense that it mostly feels like the second episode. There is a back-story montage at the beginning which looks like it was it's own episode at some point, perhaps the true Ed pilot. Probably the pilot and second episode were edited together to make a new "first" episode. Also, Janeane Garofalo does not appear in this episode at all, let alone as Liz Stevens (as she is credited on this site).moreless
