Okay, but book is better

"I bought the book first and it has great tips on how to be spend less money and conserve more, which is what I was looking for. The series is pretty entertaining and gives some good motivation to be conservation minded. It's a bit annoying to see people tearing down perfectly good houses to build a more green house, or to see 2 people living in a huge house "go green" by replacing a few light bulbs with CFLs. I appreciate the Begley's for living as they preach though, so getting insights and tips from the way they live was good value. It's also nice that he doesn't judge anyone's efforts to conserve, no matter how small or how egregious their waste might be in other areas. As he says, low hanging fruit first and any improvement is good."
The rich go green

"As in the first season, successful actor Ed Begley, Jr. plays himself as an average Joe dedicated to conservation and simple living. His wife, Rachelle Carson, plays herself as an average Jane that would rather not think about energy one way or the other, mugging her aggravation relentlessly as Ed preaches conservation. Instead of scaring you with talk of climate change, Living With Ed serves up a mix of simple energy-saving tips (the low-hanging fruit) and pricey new technology.
We were interested by the green design approaches in the large and elegant houses of celebrities Cheryl Tiegs, Jackson Browne, and Phil Rosenthal & Monica Horan, but Larry Hagman's opulent 25,000 SF hilltop Xanadu didn't seem to fit with a message of energy conservation. To his credit, Hagman has incorporated $750K worth of solar panels, and donates energy to help nearby working class families, but Ed fails to point out that such an immense house for two people, even with a household staff, is extravagantly inefficient."
Ok, but preferred Season One
Bruce England | Mountain View, CA United States | 11/30/2008

"I actually preferred Season One, which highlighted how to develop and maintain a green household when not all (seemingly) are on board with the idea. Season Two is a bit too Hollywood Celebs Today for my taste, and the homes are not exactly like those a lot of us are living in (whereas Ed and Rachelle's is very much so)."
