Living with Ed: Meet the Begleys

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 1st 2007 6:08PM

ed begley jr(S01E01) Ed Begley, Jr. loves the environment. In fact, his love for Mother Earth often overshadows his acting career, and after watching HGTV's sneak preview of the new reality series Living with Ed, you get the feeling he's just fine with that.

The new series, which slips into its regular timeslot of Sundays at 10pm starting January 7, follows Ed and his wife Rachelle, who suffers her husbands tenacity with light sarcasm and good humor. She sums up her predicament quite well when she says, "I married into a lifestyle."

The "lifestyle" is one in which her husband cooks on a solar grill, hoses "smog dust" off the solar panels on his roof, times her while she's in the shower, and drives an electric car to the Academy Awards. Rachelle is not always happy with Ed valuing environment over aesthetics, complaining that he always picks out the ugliest environmentally-friendly things he can find. Whether Begley's lifestyle is overkill or not, I can't help but admire a man who actually practices what he preaches.

Timimg your wife in the shower is not being green but instead being controlling. There's a big difference between making your own choices on being green and forcing others to conform to your standards. Ed's problem is that he crosses the line.

I HATED this "show". It was the most boring thing I have ever seen. It was terrible and after 5 minutes (that felt like an hour) I had enough.

Yeah, me too! And from the teaser ads I've seen, this looks like it could be quite an entertaining show....
