Henry lost his job when his magazine went under and now he’s broke. He has no other option than to go to his father. And Ed is most definitively not the easiest person to be around with because he always says the wrong things at the right time.
The Shat is really great in this role. One has the feeling he’s once again just playing himself but that’s OK because The Shat has the right amount of self-mockery to pull it off. “Guts or nuts – your choice!”.
