Ed continues an upswing - barely - and the NBC promo department once again proves that it's utterly out of touch with reality. From the promo, the main storyline of Ed and the old classmate looked like classic soap opera stuff, but it was handled very well. It's very real situation faced by nearly everyone in a committed relationship, and I thought the writers and actors did a good job. Carol's refusal to talk to Ed about her "true" feelings about the job had me yelling at the screen. I'm glad she came clean in the end, and saved us all some truly painful episodes. And, as we all predicted: Ed and Carol will remain in Stuckeyville! I thought the lawsuit was lame - not the idea of it, but how it was handled. It was funny seeing Ed getting irritated with the self-important NYC attorney, though. Mike, again, had some great moments: bluffing the contractor on his own home improvement skills; and his check up on Ed at the bowling alley and doing the slow turn and lights out.
