First, I apologize for not posting in… forever. I’ll spare you the reasons and just say – I have some new Edward content pieces in mind and will try as hard as possible to make the updates much more frequent moving forward.
Now on to the article…
The July 26th episode of the Bravo comedy series Odd Mom Out featured a rather prominent reference to Edward Scissorhands. In the interest of full disclosure, I have never even heard of this show until this clip showed up in my Edward Google Alert last week. I looked into it a little, and although I don’t think it appeals to my gender demographic, it does feature Andy Buckley. Fans of The Office may recognize him as the guy who portrayed David Wallace, the CEO of Dunder Mifflin for most of the series. He also was in the movie The Other Guys and made a particularly memorable cameo in a recent episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Odd Mom Out stars its creator, Jill Kargman as a fictionalized version of herself named Jill Weber. From what I gather, the basic premise is that she is a fish-out-of-water and is forced to mingle with the yuppy New York elite on a regular basis. In the clip below, she likens herself to our favorite misfit and even dons a facsimile of Johnny Depp’s costume for a moment. I have the clip queued to begin right at the start of the Edward reference. To get the full context you can watch the clip from the beginning.
If you want to see more of Odd Mom Out, the third season is currently airing on Bravo every Wednesday night at 10/9 c.
