** Also, the movie as a whole now is funnier when the viewer realizes they're watching [[Series/TrueDetective two of the world's greatest detectives]] bumble their way through a reality show. Definitely makes Season 2 look better in comparison.

* ValuesResonance: In 1999, this film portrayed a world where an individual who tries out for a casting call, and has his life turned into a circus for the benefit of television audiences. Ten years later, in the wake of the RealityShow concept being played to death, EdTV seems oddly prescient about the entire genre.

* HilariousInHindsight: The television channel which comes up with the idea for EDtv is named "True TV", and its intent is to constantly air what happens in a normal person's life. A case of {{Defictionalization}} occurred in 2008 when the actual television network [=CourtTV=] changed its name to "truTV", which places a heavy focus on "caught-on-video" reality programs, just like the film!

* OlderThanTheyThink: When it was released, the film was criticized for being a derivative knockoff of ''TheTrumanShow''. Most people who saw the film didn't realize that Edtv was based off a little-known French-Canadian film called ''Louis 19'', which was made five years before either film was released and dealt with the same subject matter.
