Other odd things

I watch TV occasionally. I don’t watch much network tv, its usually pretty bad. I have no wish to watch the night time soaps or “dramas.” They usually have no scripts that are compelling to me.

Last week a co worker told me about a show that was coming on tv that looked like it would be something that I would be interested in. ABC has a new show called Pushing Daisies. I checked it out last week and DH & I were amused. Its got a stylized look and a smart sense of humor. The premise of the show is that the main character Ned can bring back someone or something to life from the dead. But there’s a couple of gotchas to this little talent. If the returned to life person or critter stays alive more than a minute, some one or thing else has to die. And the main character cannot touch that person or thing again, otherwise they/it are dead again permanently.

We watched the second episode tonight. It is a very funny but dark show. We both enjoyed it. There are some really entertaining bits to it, but an appreciation of the absurd is probably best for this show.

  1. Well, there are times watching it when I’m not quite sure were they’re going. But with the saturated colors, the ironic voice-over, and the tongue in cheek humor, its similar to the style of Sin City. DH & I figure that the network will kill it when it doesn’t get the ratings that they want.

    I figure that after working at a haunted house, our humor has definite undertones of the macabre. Especially during October! So this show seems to hit those really well.
