Whoops!  I was actually looking for an old thread and hit enter.  Oh well!  Anyone going to watch it tonight?

"Pushing Daisies" is a real treat!  A combination of humor, fantasy, and mystery.  The characters are funny - especially the sarcastic and cynical one played by Chi McBride- and the interaction between them is terrific...especially the angle that the man and woman clearly like one another but can never touch!  Watch it and see why.  ABC at 8 am eastern on Wednesdays.  Whoops!  You missed it this week!

I don't watch much tv, but I was impressed with this show. I like how it's filmed, sorta "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory" (Johnny Depp version) or "Lemony Snicket" style. If you get the chance to watch it I highly recommend it for a change of pace from the usual assortment of shows.

Also, in case anyone wasn't aware, full episodes are available for free on the ABC website.  This is the only way I can watch it (until I get Tivo). I have class on wednesday nights from 6-9:20 :(

I know I should really enjoy this show, but I'm not totally turned onto it yet. (Maybe I need some more time.) It reminds me of some Dr. Seuss/Comedy/Mystery. It's unlike anything else on tv...and that's great! I'll keep trying it out.

I haven't decided if I like it or not, though I've only caught one episode so far. I'm going to watch again tomorrow night to help cement my decision.

I love this show, so do my 11 and 13 year old daughters. It's cute and funny.
