Okay, people who are worried about how Pushing Daisies will keep the magic going: Tonight brings episode two. See what happens.
But, yes, keeping the magic going will be quite a challenge!
I love the color and the whole style, but the stories aren't grabbing me so far.
The crime-solving angle is getting kind of annoying.
I do like the style, and I can appreciate what they're trying to do...but, somehow, as Bob said, I'm just not feeling grabbed...
Good news, everyone: Flight of the Conchords season 1 has been announced for DVD, Nov 6. That's flippin' hot.
I find it interesting that ABC has such an ecclectic 3 hours w/ Daisies being so quirky, Private Practice being the normal one and Dirty Sexy Money being the exact over the top opposite of Daisies. Makes for fun viewing.
It's interesting how several of the new shows this season revolve centrally around death. Guess it's on our national minds these days.
But the show will get many more strikes than other shows get to try to win me over.
"A lot of people (myself included) have compared it with Tim Burton, but maybe the better comparison is to the movies of Wes Anderson. Like Anderson's films, this show may be less about any story than about the creation of a private world, the display of gorgeous esoteric jewels, the evocation of emotion through image. "
While I'm not totally sold, I like it better than any other new show right now. Entire episodes are on NBC's website. I caught up with the pilot that way and found it intriguing.
I don't get "Pushing Daisies" at all. Sorry. It makes me feel pummelled by niceness. Kind of like that show "Ed." But I know I'm not being fair because both times it's been on, I've turned it off after about 10 minutes because I can't stand it. Maybe there is something revelatory that happens if you stick with it?
24 - No, if you don't like the tone, it won't get any better if you keep watching.
On the other hand, I thought Life was weak.
You have a good point on that one. There was one scene cut where I did get a bit tired of the tempo this last episode, but it was all gone halfway through. It does look like the shows drama is going to turn away from crime solving next week when Chuck finds out about the Funeral Parlor Director.

Really enjoyed Pushing Daisies. It had a real European film kind of feel to it ala Amelie. It was by leaps and bounds the best new show I've seen this year, and probably in 3 or 4 years.
Thanks you very much
