    Default "Pushing Daisies" on ABC premieres Wednesday night, October 3, 2007 @ 8/7c

    Anybody else looking forward to this new show? It looks like it has a very cinematic feel to it.


    "Pushing Daisies" is a new ABC television series making its premiere on October 3rd at 8:00e/7:00c. I think this show has a lot of promise and I look forward to following it to see what happens. Here's hoping it does great and grows a loyal fanbase!

    Main Characters:
    Lee Pace as Ned
    Anna Friel as Charlotte "Chuck"
    Chi McBride as Emerson
    Swoosie Kutrz as Lily
    Ellen Greene as Vivian
    Kristin Chenoweth as Olive
    Jim Dale as The Narrator

    This romantic drama shows us the strange world of a man, Ned, who can bring dead people back to life through the power of his touch. The people he touches, however, can only stay alive for one minute, and if they don't die again, someone else nearby will die. Ned decides to use his ability to solve crime. He and a local investigator, Emerson, bring murder victims back to life and find out who killed them, to cash in on case-solving rewards. But, when Ned brings an old crush back to life, and decides to let her live, things start to get complicated...

    The show is created by Bryan Fuller, who has brought us sci-fi series such as Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me. The series is said to share some aspects of Fuller's previous shows, with quick witted comedy mixed with darker emotions and drama. The main plot about life and death is also akin to Dead Like Me.

    I've actually already seen the pilot and it's really, really good. Really like nothing else on TV. I'd guess the right word is charming.

    I too, have already seen the pilot, and it's by far my favorite show of the premieres I have seen so far. I hope that it can keep up its charm and its uniqueness, but I am also worried that its for a specific target audience that it may get canceled. I'm crossing my fingers that it keeps up its quality, and that enough people will watch it. I love its look and the story. Everyone should tune into it if they can! The colors are beautiful and vivid, reminds me of the movie "Big Fish".

    Bump - I'm curious as to the opinions of other MKFers who might have caught the show. It repeats tonight (special only to this week.)

    Ah! I LOVE this show! It is very unique for a tv show. Funny that you mention "Big Fish" because I thought it had a very Tim Burton feel to it. It seems like the kind of quirky thing he'd do! I'm totally hooked and I certainly hope that it doesn't change. I'm glad it is repeating tonight because I was really wanting to see it again, lol!

    It reminds me of James and the Giant Peach in the way the show is presented.

    I love that the show combines so many genres: fantasy/sci-fi, comedy, and drama and so far I really like all of the characters. It's such a charming story!

    Ned sorta reminds me of Victor Van Dort from Corpse Bride . . . love him!

    So I forgot to watch this last wednesday, but I plan on watching again tonight. My coworker said this week wasn't nearly as good. Does anyone else have any thoughts on it?

    This is one new show that I actually watch. I don't watch a lot of shows anymore and usually stick to two or three, but 'Pushing Daisies" is very charming, like someone said. Plus, if you miss a few things, you won't get lost...a la 'Lost' (no pun intended) or Heroes.

    Plus, Kristen Chenowith on there, and I love her!

    And it makes me wonder a little bit: being with the one you love, yet never being able to touch them. Being able to bond with someone mentally and soulfully is the ultimate, but no can over-estimate the feel of touch.

    I actually loved the second epsiode. It made me laugh a few more times than the first. (This show actually just took Grey's place on my DVR...that show just started to annoy me.)

    You know... that's very true. I, for one, don't like to be touched too much unless I really know someone. Even then I'm not a "toucher"!

    I really love this show. It is quirky. The chemistry of the cast is amazing. The writing is inventive. And, icing on the cake, Lee Pace is a perfect for the role of Ned AND is super cute!

    I agree with your co-worker. I enjoyed last weeks episode alot more because of all of the flashbacks and more attention on the character's personal lives. This weeks episode seemed to focus more on the mystery solving aspect of the show. I am not a big fan of mysteries, so I may quit watching if all of the episodes turn out to be similar to this weeks.

    Krista, what did you think of the latest episode?

    LOL, I'm a sucker for crime dramas, but I love stuff like Ugly Betty as well. I think this show is able to mix the quirky side, magical with the crime that they're solving pretty well. It did fall 20% in terms of households on the second viewing, but it's still doing pretty good. I do hope they explore the personal lives more, but I have a feeling they're trying to do it more subtley. BTW, Kristen Chenowith - who didn't love Olive bursting into "Hopelessly Devoted to You"??

    I love Jim Dale's voice

    Now "Women's Murder Club" - I couldn't figure out if I was watching a drama, or a comedy. The tone of the show couldn't keep it together.
