PS. Where the Hell is ED on dvd? Music Rights issues I assume.
Yeah, music rights holding this release, acording to here.

Is there some torrent or site where I can find the episodes?

Christ do I find Tom Cavanagh to be annoying. Julie Bowen on the other hand...
Well, diff'rent strokes I guess.
I was an ED Fanatic. I guess It's because I had been infatuated at the time with some high-school girls and I escaped to a world where I suddenly became cool and romantic and swept my wonder years sweetheart off her feet. Not to mention the character Phil Stubbs was amazing, which reminds me, I need to pick up the first season of Stella... I just loved the atmosphere of the show, and it was always uplifting. And Julie Bowen, yeah. Rrrrowr.

Ed was so far ahead of its time that it's really a credit to the show that it lasted as long as it did. NBC has no idea what they're sitting on by not releasing it, it's gonna be obnoxiously huge once it catches on.

If you're like me and wore out your old broadcast tapes of Ed (I managed to catch on to the show from the first episode and knew it was good enough to start taping by the third episode, so I was lucky to have a fairly full set), I got a really decent complete series set of DVD-Rs for like $80 on iOffer. The first two seasons taken from stolen network tapes and the last two from DVR.

Great read, but makes me wonder really how expensive the show is to be shown. UP TV/network is a relative small network, so how much money could they have paid to show re-runs?

I think TV distribution is quite low, its home video and streaming rights that have to be renegotiated

Wow, someone found the original pilot and posted it on YouTube. I knew Michael Ian Black replaced Donal Logue, but was surprised that some of the funniest character actors on the show were also absent here, including the eventual portrayers of Dr Jerome and Kenny. As someone who's watched the aired pilot a million times, this whole thing is truly a literal bizarro world peek into what the show almost was

(Here's the aired pilot to compare. Sadly, though most of the early episodes are up in full on YT [albeit edited to remove the music], this one is split into five parts-- do yourself a favor and just drop $20 at iOffer for the complete series)
