    Fantastic show.

    I am amazed that a show this stylized ever made it on the air.

    However, I must give TV credit for taking some chances on shows. I think they finally understand that people enjoy more than your traditional sitcoms and cop shows.

    By the way it's narrated, it reminds me of a Dr. Seuss book, kind of like Big Fish.

    I've got to watch this. Are they going to show it on ABC.com? It looked really cool.

    I've only watched the first fifteen minutes and within the first three I was hooked. It's really well done.

    I saw the preview at the movies, actually. (Order of the Pheonix) It looked really unique.

    Fine

    Pushing Daisies, in short, is the rare television show that actually changes the way you look at television, a dazzlingly lush production that seems more at home as a big budget feature film filled with charmingly eccentric folk whom you can't wait to meet up with again.

    The interview I heard about the show gave it an interesting premise,and one of the writers worked on Star Trek Voyager But I've not seen it,but I did see a vaguely similar program,Reaper,that I liked alot. [face_thinking]
    It has had its own wiki for a few months now. [face_idea]

    Wow, I just noticed that the pilot was directed by Barry Sonnenfeld. No wonder it looked so well done.

    I only watched the first episode, i though it was overly affected and twee. the excessive stylisation prevents real connection with the characters, imo.

    It's a Bryan Fuller show, of course it's good. See: Dead Like Me. Shame his shows usually don't last too long, though.

    SO ADORABLE.

    I'm about 25 minutes in, and like Kate, I was hooked almost instantly. Must.keep.watching...

    Edit: Also, if they dare cancel this show I am going to whack the ABC execs over the head with a fasces.

    ARG!!! I was so proud of how there were NO TV series I was interested in. This show just went and screwed it up. Thanks. :mad:
