Every new TV year, I try and limit myself to 1 new show to become addicted to because I can’t handle much more. I won’t bore you with all the shows I TV, but it is a bit shocking. This season, I have been waiting for “Pushing Daisies.” It has a lot of hype behind it and just sounded radically different from anything else on TV.
I don’t know completely how to describe this show and do it justice. It is like a fairy tale for adults. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I just felt warm and fuzzy through the whole thing. The story is Ned has the power to bring people back from the dead by touching them. The catch is that if he touches them again, they die again. The show itself is rich with color, I can’t even imagine what it would look like on HDTV. If you’ve seen the movie “Big Fish” it is very similar to that in its look.
I know what you are thinking- “Great that you liked this, but it already premiered, I’m too late.” Do not fret, TV lovers. ABC is rebroadcasting the show on Friday at 8 pm, EST. Tivo, DVR, cancel your plans (if you have Friday night plans- congrats), but watch this show. I would love to hear what you think.
