Press Quotes

Edie's show was smart and brilliantly experimental, blending in-studio performances with ambitious on-location shoots and spontaneous comedy bits.

     —Whitney Matheson, USA Today

An even earlier, and even more rare, television treat... I was astounded by how inventive and original they are -- Edie really did carry on the pioneering TV spirit of Ernie Kovacs. But where he liked his music with a touch of the bizarre, she was a trained classical and jazz singer, and her TV shows reflect her tastes beautifully. There's no pandering to a network TV audience here...

     —David Bianculli, NPR (Fresh Air)

A true labor of love

     —Michael Giltz, Huffington Post

If you're looking for unique and top-flight entertainment value--no matter what time it takes place--your party has arrived.

     —P.S. Colbert , DVD Verdict
