    I like this show

    HOWVER, i am afraids they will cancel on it, I think maybe something like this is better suited for the nice HBO, they need nice stuff like this instead of nonsenses like "Tell me ya loves me!" and what not nowadays. I fear this type of uniqueness will not survive on the ABC. It shall be seen. IT SHALL BE SEEN!

    It might survive. It just might, ABC can have quirkiness. Remember, the channel is owned by Disney. They give things like this a little more leeway.

    I mean, it's not like it's on FOX or anything...

    Me, too. :( I had resisted Heroes, Lost, BSG, CSI (I have friends that are obsessed with this show...whatever), and The Closer.

    I enjoyed this show. I liked the fairy tale narrative that was just a little creepy given the nature of the premise, but the characters were likable. And, I love Chi McBride! He's funny as the pie makers business partner.

    I just watched the premiere on ABC.com and thought it was really cute. I just hope they have enough material to keep it fresh for the whole season...

    Very cool show. So original, although the look and feel are like right out of Big Fish, but that was a good movie so it's okay. :p I'm also curious to see where they're planning to take the show to last a whole season, but these days they tend to plan things out pretty well, at least for first seasons.

    I never thought Prison Break would last more than a season(and I didn't watch much of the second season, or any of the third season), but it appears to still have a strong following.

    That's just an example of a premise being able to be stretched out well.

    I bhave faith that they'll be able to handle it. Surely they'd come up with a premise that could be stretched out. Should be fine.

    I don't mean to keep bumping this thread, but I realized that a posting of the extended trailer for the show might be in order for those that haven't seen the show. As others have mentioned, you can also watch the episodes for free at ABC's website. :D

    Okay that extended trailer as gotten me interested.
    Looks good.
    He should get into a latex fetish.
    Then he could touch her and do all sorts of naughty things.

    My wife and I caught the show on a replay on some Friday night awhile back and loved the show. I like the use of colors in the scenery and basic mono-tone of the characters.

    We'll be watching tonight's show for sure.

    Yeah the colors remind me a lot of the Soundgarden video for Blackhole Sun. :p

    I'm steadily falling in love with this show. It's quirky, funny, and well packaged. I've caught all the episodes so far, and I hope it sticks around.

    I hate being in a timezone that gets the show last. :p

    But yes, it was another great episode. Brilliantly done and oh so cute.

    And I love living in a country that gets it on Tuesday.

    I don't even know why I like this show, but I'm fairly sure Kristin Chenoweth has something to do with it. She's like a real-live pixie.

    A Brief Ode to Anna Friel

    This sensation I can't hide
    I can feel it in my bones
    You are the Kevin Spacey
    To my solojones





    Okay, that might be overstating it, but still.

    I'm really quite liking this show. So far it's doing a good job convincing me they can build a full series on this concept and cast of characters.
