Added DiffLines:

** Greg Sestero's role in the film is watching Ed and Shari have sex. Ironically, one of the famous lines of ''Film/TheRoom'', among many, is "How's Your Sex Life?". What makes it double ironic is the guy playing Greg's friend says "Huh?" in a way that sounds slightly like the way Tommy Wiseau says it.

** Greg Sestero of ''Film/TheRoom'' fame plays one of the people watching Edtv.

** 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!
