Next Big Thing

Wasn't much on the tube tonight, so I meandered over to ABC.com to catch up on missed episodes of a couple of shows. After that, I was still a bit in need of mindless entertainment. Having heard so many raves about Pushing Daisies, which I'd refused to watch because I thought it would be drivel, I decided to watch one episode and see what all the fuss was about.

Stupid me.

Judging by one viewing, it's the best danged thing on TV. I'm a big fan of quirky—Six Feet Under, Dexter—and this fits the bill. That has to be some of the best dialogue I've heard in ages. As in, very intelligent, completely unexpected, cannot predict it at all. And FUNNY.

Great. Just what I needed. Another addiction.

Scuse me while I go catch up on the season...

I am too disorganized to catch a show every week, but I have seen that one a couple of times and I really liked it. Swoozie Kurtz in an eyepatch? Dude, gotta be a classic.

I was startled by how much I love that show! And the narrator is Jim Dale...the same guy who reads the Harry Potter books on audio. That alone makes it just the best thing ever!!!

I tried to watch it and couldn't get into it. OTOH, probably a good thing what with the writer's strike. I'll bet there are going to be more than a few casualties.
