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

    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 [link=http://pushingdaisies.wikia.com/]wiki[/link] 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.

    [link=http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=14892370]Look for the interview he did on Fresh Air with Terry Gross[/link].
    If you like the show you'll find it highly informative.

    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.

    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:
