Ed would like to be a normal teenager. Unfortunately, Ed has been used for intelligence enhancing research, and is extremely smart as a consequence. Equally unfortunately, the chemicals used in the research are affecting his brain in such a way that he'll be dead on his 21st birthday unless he finds a cure. With this in mind, he escapes from the research facility. The research facility is none too happy about this, and tries to recapture him.Written by
I remember being an enthusiastic viewer when it first came out, which i guess was some time in the summer of 1994. I saw a preview one night for the premiere and I was totally hooked. I watched every episode, and although I can't remember specifics as to what happened on the show, I remember it being cool and futuristic and me being absolutely glued to the TV. It was one of the few shows on MTV that I enjoyed, some of the others being The State and, of course, Beavis & Butthead. When MTV gets a hit show, though, it inevitably doesn't last long. I hope more people speak up about Dead at 21 and MTV brings it back for a while. You know, like those random My So-Called Life marathons that they do once in a while.
