pushing daisies

Does anyone else watch this show on ABC, Wednesday nights? I find it completely adorable! So far, I *heart* this show. I've only seen two episodes; it's been clean and I so hope that ABC keeps it on the air.

It's a very creative show made in the theme of a fairy tale--colors are bolder than life, the music is fun and Tim Burton-esque, there's even a droll narrator. This style reminds me of some of my favorites like "Babe", "Nanny McPhee", "Lemony Snicket", and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (recent).

The premise is that Ned, our hero, learns at a young age that he can bring a dead something or someone to life with just a touch. If he touches the same person a second time within a minute, he/she will return to death. If Ned does not touch them within a minute, they remain alive, and someone within close proximity will die in his place. As an adult, he reunites with his childhood sweetheart by bringing her back to life, solving her murder, and being unable to let her pass away again. She is his accomplice as they work with a P.I. solving murders.

I'm really enjoying it...anyone else? (By the way, I didn't notice this on TV. I found it on abc.com's website that has live streaming of archived shows. LOVE THAT!)

Amie, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this show too! Sadly, my DVR did not work Wednesday night and so I missed it. I'm going to have to watch it online. I think it is so creative and adorable. I love all the characters. The girlfriend's (I can't remember her name) aunts were hysterical! I think is going to be one of my favorites.

The previews always interested me so I've been watching every episode so far. You name it I'm probably watching it. I have way too many shows right now :)

On a side note. Have you seen Moonlight? It is so stupid but I like it anyway; maybe just because it's about vampires?

I totally love my camera.. I will email you the info. I got it from Sam's club and it isn't too pricey. It is rechargeable but it lasts forever. You can buy a extra battery for cheap and never be without.. It also doesn't take too long to recharge with flash like my last camera.. Ill email the info and you can check it out.. It is great and takes awesome photos.

I love it too! The colors and the narration are my favorite. I can't tell if I feel sorry for the love-lorn waitress or not.

It's on tonight!
