wayback wednesday: Pushing Daisies starts tonight!  

So, my favorite show of the new season starts tonight (8:00 on ABC):

Pushing Daisies

It's an amazingly charming bit of magical realism, very much in the spirit of Wonderfalls and Big Fish. I want to tell you exactly what it's about, but doing so would cheat you out of too much. Just trust me, it will both warm and wrench your heart. I've already watched it twice and I can't wait to watch it again.

It's created by Bryan Fuller (who made the excellent Wonderfalls series) and directed by Barry Sonnenfeld (The Addams Family). It stars Lee Pace (Wonderfalls), Chi McBride (Boston Public), Kristin Chenoweth (West Wing), and Anna Friel (who I'm actually not familiar with). Plus Ellen Greene and Swoosie Kurtz in supporting roles. Oh, and the narrator is apparently the guy who does the Harry Potter audio books if that means anything to you.

Current Mood: 240
Listening to: The Arcade Fire - "Keep the Car Running"

Anna Friel played Hermia in the 1999 version of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

I saw Kristin Chenoweth and thought "OMG! Miss Noodle has a voice!". I watched far more Sesame Street than West Wing when the latter was on the air.

I don't think I saw that. I'll have to put it on the Netflix.

I'm glad you liked it. What did you think of episode two? Pretty zany, eh?

I know it's a little late but...
The "guy who does the Harry Potter audio books" is Stephen Fry, considered one of our national treasures! Damn yank.

Oh, I know and love Stephen Fry, but I'm talking about Jim Dale, who does the American versions of the audio books (yeah, I know... damn yanks).
