Lisa Edelstein on ALMOST PERFECT

Found this on YouTube. Lisa's scenes from one of our ALMOST PERFECT episodes. It's a little choppy in places but not bad. Here's the set-up. Lisa plays Patty Karp, married to Gary (the hilarious Chip Zien). She's every man's nightmare. This is the Thanksgiving episode. As great as Lisa is on HOUSE, she's an even better comedienne.

I fell in love with Lisa Edelstein on West Wing.

I've admired Kevin Kilner since Earth: Final Conflict.

Doing some minor research, I find that Chip Zien was the voice of Howard the Duck. Waugh!

I realize this is hardly even tangentially on topic, but has there ever been a better written non-sitcom TV character than House?

You and your Lisa E fetish. If I was your wife I'd start to worry, just sayin'.

Lisa Edelstein's best work? Sports Night.

Well, that and as the girlfriend George accused of faking.

Nancy Travis and Lisa Edelstein! I don't recall this specific episode, but I remember watching Almost Perfect primarily due to a Nancy Travis crush. (Why else would I have paid to see 'So I Married an Axe Murderer'?)

And I had a letter published in TV Guide (kind of like a PEN or a Nobel, when you think about it) blathering sweet things about Lisa E and some "Sexiest TV Stars" article. If you got to have a 'fetish', she's a good one to have.

So, Ken, thanks for this video. I have renewed hope in humanity.

Lisa is hilarious. She really can act.

I first came across Lisa Edelstein in her occasional role in RELATIVITY, the Herskowitz-Zwick-Katims show from 1996-97. She was very engaging, as was the entire cast except for the two leads - she played the daughter of Barry Roth (Richard Schiff, also the first role I encountered him in) and sister of the ineffectual male lead. (Any admirer of Schiff should see him as Barry.)

I don't know if this was posted for my benefit but even if it wasn't, it's still appreciated.

She's just fantastic. I've said it before, I'll say it again--Lisa Edelstein. Sigh.
