Pushing Daisies

I've been busy with non-blogable things like laundry. Well, I guess it's not NON-blogable - I could physically do it, but I'd put you all to sleep. You could sleep like little Pokey:

I got all my Netflix discs at once, which I love and hate all at the same time. I LOVE having something to watch while I handquilt, but hate not having them nicely spaced out. Finished Entourage Season 4 without even knowing it was over. I was looking for the next disc, but oooh no, there isn't one. It's one of those shows that I do enjoy, but definitely fluffy. I'm not emotionally invested, just amused. I don't need to watch it over and over again. Not like:

Pushing Daisies. I LOVE Pushing Daisies. Ned has the ability to bring the dead back to life with a single touch. One touch = life, but two touches = dead again. Oops. The show's got a real morbid side but at the same time it's really sweet. Not everyone does, but I love The Narrator - he adds the fairy tale-iality of the show. Every episode is a mini-movie. Super saturated colors, great acting and writing. I forgot to mention the show is a mystery since Ned can ask murder victims who killed them.

If you like Amelie, Beetlejuice, Dead Like Me, Addams Family, Edward Scissorhands, Moonlighting, Edward Gorey, Lemony Snicket, or Christopher Moore then give the show a try. You don't have to like all these things, just one. You may not like the show, but you should try it. Seems to be a show you either love or hate. My husband of all people enjoyed the first episode.

The ABC home page has lots of info for Pushing Daisies and it will get you caught up so you can start watching the second season of the show. Even better, watch the first season - it's fabulous.

You'll get some quiltiness after all in this post. Check out Marit's blog Quilt It. She makes wonderful light colorful quilts and her cats are gorgeous. Check out her Maverick Stars quilt and I'm thrilled to have helped inspire her Tea for Two quilt.

It is such a bummer to have to deal with real life like laundry when you would rather be quilting! I don't watch many movies but you make these sound very interesting.

I loved Pushing Daisies last night. In HD! It looked great and really nice to see everyone back. If you have never seen if, go check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJr8hYadMjE . Don’t let a good show disappear!

I love Pushing Daisies! It's exactly like you said...fairy tale-ish like, kinda.

Too bad real life gets in the way of our fun. Oh well...at least one can sew between loads.

We love Pushing Daisies, It really is quirky, but fun. The detective (who is a little bit dishonest) is such a wonderful character. They are all wonderful characters.

I found Pushing Daisies being repeated on ITV2. The only trouble is that it was on so late I was doing my nodding duck routine half way through. Keeping my eyes peeled for the repeat of Series 1 and then Series 2.
