Ed and Carol disagree about the propriety of reuniting Ed's high school garage band to play at the funeral of the band's songwriter. Warren dates Jessica for a week and immortalizes the event with an infinity tattoo. Molly tutors Phil in chemistry so he can get his G.E.D.

U2 Pop Culture Reference:
[Showtime 30:00 with commercials] Ed, Mike, and Barney decide to have a band practice to get ready for the funeral of their school friend. Barney holds the practice in his garage. His garage appears exactly like it was in 1987. Among the artifacts is a Joshua Tree poster hanging up on the garage wall.

Besides U2, is it worth watching?
Stuckyville is one of those 'only on tv' towns where everyone gets along and all the laws are perfectly manicured. The show is a dramedy in the style of Northern Exposure, where the small town quirks become the major character. It is nowhere near as creative as the late, great, NoEx however. It's funny and all the lead actors are great. I especially like the interplay between married parents Mike and Nancy.
