My "Pushing Daisies" Review

So did "Pushing Daisies" live up to my lofty expectations? YES! It was everything I thought it would be and more.

"Daisies" is quirky, humorous, poetic, magical, witty, creatively written, and full of meaningful moments that weren't cliche. It successfully mixes comedy, romance, drama, and a subtle darkness that is absolutely endearing. The colors are vivid and vibrant, which adds to the overall artistic feeling that is portrayed. It reminded me a lot of Tim Burton's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Although it's still early, the characters are well-developed, with snappy and poignant interactions and dialog. This is an extremely original, high-quality show. Unfortunately it is so different from the usual mindless recycled garbage most networks produce it probably won't last past this season.

One of the nice surprises of the show was Jim Dale, the narrator, who is the actor who narrates and acts all of the recorded Harry Potter books. I'm a sucker for shows/movies with great narration (Arrested Development, Shawshank Redemption)

My list of "must see" TV has now grown to 5 (24, Lost, The Office, Scrubs, and now Pushing Daisies) 4 Stars for Pushing Daisies!!
