Anyone else tuning in?

It seems interesting to say the least, it's about 20 minutes in and I can't tell if I like it or not...... :unsure:

I was really struggling through the first 20 minutes - had that itchy finger waiting to change the channel.

But I gave it a chance and ended up really liking it.

The lead is brilliant - and he's adorable. The dialogue is so poetic, intelligent, and full of great metaphors. This writer obviously excelled in english classes...haha.

Chi McBride is always great. He's a great sidekick.

I'll be giving it another chance now. It'll be interesting to see what else they can do with this show...

It's a show you'll either love or hate, I loved it!


David Bianculli of the NY Daily News said it best

"Describing it, I fear, may be a lot less effective than raving about it. To fall under the spell of "Daisies," you need to see it and hear it for yourself. The music, the images, the bedtime-story narration by Jim Dale (Harry Potter), the performances -you don't explain magic. You just fall for it"

"Pushing Daisies" is perfect.

I love this show. And that reviewer is dead-on in his description. I can say no more. The show is visually brilliant, well written and charming.I daresay it's a show the whole family can enjoy. Doesn't look raunchy AT ALL. Especially since the lead CAN'T have sex! :lol:

I wasn't sure at first but I ended up really liking it. I can't wait to see Episode 2. A very unique show, by far.

I've seen bits and pieces of this show in clips on YouTube, and it looks like just my kind of show. A little off kilter and unique... I need to tune in!

I figured I'd watch it since the reviews were all so positive, and I really enjoyed it. I like how different it is from almost all the other shows on tv right now. Great cast too. :)

Although ratings aren't out yet ... according to TVGuide online, Pushing Daisies 'kicked ass' in the ratings last night!

While Private Practice and Bionic Woman both fell.

I thought Pushing Daisies was wondrous. Posted Image

The writing is brilliant and darkly funny. Even with the fairy tale-like narration (which I, surprisingly, didn't mind one bit), I didn't find this show overly whimsical at all. I was afraid that it was gonna be like one of those indie movies that tries way too hard to be quirky and unique. Nope, not even. Thank goodness! ;)

The cast is fantastic. Lee Pace is so charming and funny (and hot! LOL) as "The Piemaker;" his dead-pan style is terrific. Anna Friehl is charmer as Chuck, too. I love her. Such great chemistry between those two. Chi McBride and Kristin Chenoweth are awesome on this show, as per usual. I was LMAO when her character said she thought masturbation meant chewing your food. :lol: Oh yeah and it was nice to see Swoosie Kurtz on TV again.

The first thing I was struck by, though, was how spectacular this show is visually/stylistically. My God, those colors! So deliciously bold, vivid and beautiful. I loved the way it was shot; it had a very cinematic feel (reminded me a lot of Amélie, in fact). The narration adds a lot that cinematic feel, as well. The shot of Young Ned and Young Chuck walking toward each other from his mother and her father's funerals (to share their first kiss), with the big setting sun in between them, had me all choked up; it was so beautiful. *sigh* The overhead view of Chuck and Ned laying there longingly touching the wall that separated them was sweet, too. And what about when those two held their own hands because they couldn't hold each other's? I am totally enchanted by this pairing already. :wub:

I'm really happy to hear that the pilot did well in the ratings because this is one of the few new shows that I am truly excited about this season. Pushing Daisies is wonderfully unique and completely engrossing, IMO. I can't wait to see the next episode. I think I'll go watch the first one again right now. :)

GGirl is a fan too! I have watched the show three times already :lol: Once when it aired, then watche it this afternoon with my grandma, and again tonight with a friend.

They all loved it. My Nana said it was like watching a movie instead of a TV show.

I love everything about this show. Lee Pace is so cute! Its so great to see Ms Kurtz back on TV and Kristin Chenowith is a great actress.

I love the premise and it just makes u happy. I love the romance of the show and its magical feeling.

I am going to go nuts cause they can't kiss

Best show hands down on primetime and I hardly watch any cause the majority stink.

Everybody seems to love this, but right now I'm somewhere in the middle. I thought the acting was just OK, but the production values were top notch and the writing stellar (albeit too much sometime). I think a lot of people like this show because it's unique, but I don't see the greatness like everyone else. As of right now it has A LOT to live up to.
