I'm a Pushing Daisies Pusher

Did any of you catch "Pushing Daisies" yesterday? It was definitely one of the new shows that I was curious to try out. The ads looked cute and the premise - a man who could bring the dead to life by touching them and then dead again after a second touch - was interesting.

So I watched it, AND LOVED IT! It's definitely on my list of favorite shows now. I could use so many words to describe the show - whimsical, funny, quirky, colorful, imaginative, adorable, and enchanting. The lead, Ned, is charming and sweet. His partner in crime (solving crime, that is), Emerson, is gruff, but lovable (played by the huggable Chi McBride). And Ned's childhood sweetheart, the un-dead Chuck, is the most alive person on screen.

The show is a joy to watch. The colors just pop off the screen, and it feels like you're watching a fairytale, thanks to a play by play by the narrator. "Daisies" reminds me a lot of movies like "Edward Scissorhands" and "Stardust". I've read that it's a lot like "Wonderfalls", an awesome show that was canceled before I ever got to watch an episode (that I also had on my Blockbuster online queue but canceled before I could watch a show).

So, if you didn't catch it yesterday, it'll be on again tomorrow night. I know it may not be something that interests everyone, but it was a perfect fit for me!

...and if I still haven't convinced you, check out the extended preview.

It's very Tim Burton w/ the odd characters, whimsical dialogue and colorful scenes. I like it too. Let's see how far it can go.

I liked Pushing Daisies but I think it's a big too quirky to last on regular television (even though I hope it does last).

The narrator of the show is Jim Dale, who does the narration for the audio Harry Potter books. He's fabu!
