Pushing Daisies


So I'm sitting on a frozen bag of corn watching one of the final episodes of Pushing Daisies feeling very sad that such a great show is getting cancelled. I'm mad at ABC for killing such a wonderful show. I'm mad at you for not watching it. I'm actually just sad. It's an amazing show. Original concept, clever writing, beautifully shot, and don't even get me started on the colors. This show alone justifies buying a hi-def television set. It's like a Thanksgiving Day meal + Fryday extravaganza for your eye balls. And stupid ABC is giving up on it.

Now having done a little moving-picture creating I can't imagine what that'd feel like. The whole cast and crew has to be like, what the fudge-cicle? To produce something that is clever, original, artistic, beautiful and funny and then just be done.... something's wrong with that. I feel like a teenager telling my parents it's not fair. If you don't watch this show I expect you to send me a hand written apology. Cause it's your fault.

The bag of corn.... I fell off a 1950s pogo stick at a rehearsal tonight and straight onto a concrete stage. Me bum hurts. What's hilarious is Brianna, the 13 year old actress in the show, told me minutes before I fell off, "to be careful." Afterwards, she reminded me she saw it all coming. Talented and clairvoyant. I should've consulted with her before falling in love with Pushing Daisies. She could've saved me from that pain as well.

I'm still torn up over 'Arrested Development' being cancelled...

Clever writing? Great cast?

"Nah, just give us a bald dude and some chicks with some briefcases!"

This world is broken.

Here's to you and your sweetheart forever remembered in the form of digital video disc.

i love the "bald dude" comment... scary true, but funny nonetheless.

Why the corn? People actually eat the corn. You could easily be sitting on a frozen bags of brussels sprouts, or parsnips or rutabaga. But you chose corn.

*Mental Note*
When Brad invites me over for corn casserole, corn stew, corn soup, cornmeal or even to watch Children of the Corn - DO NOT GO!!

I will too. as long as it's well done and browned on the edges -- from heat, that is.

We have watched Pushing Daisies from episode #1, and also mourn it's passing.

Loved the writing, and the colors from the start. Then got into set design, costumes, photography, characters...

It curious that the killers reside at ABC this time... it's usually FOX.
