Dear ABC execs: Don't cancel Pushing Daisies

Pushing Daisies is whimsical, fun, and has mysteries and intrigues that keep me coming back every week. There's nothing else like it on the air right now, and that's a great thing. I do not have it in me to watch another doctor, lawyer, or dramatic crime show; and I never had it in me to watch reality tv.

The bit where Kristen Chenowith breaks into song from last night's episode of Pushing Daisies was brilliant.

I want to see more of that. Please renew Pushing Daisies.

  1. I won't watch your video yet as I haven't watched that episode. Still on the DVR. But I will join you in your call to not have it canceled.

  2. I'm almost glad that I never started watching it, because I know I would be hooked, and then horribly disappointed when it got canceled. Just like I was with Veronica Mars.

    But now I'm totally going to have to watch it online anyway, just to see what I missed. D'oh.

  3. I watched a few episodes, but never quite got into it. Not sure why, the fantasy sequences really did not appeal to me.

  4. Kevin: Thanks for your support.

    And yes, do wait until you see the ep.

    Jenny: I've loved Veronica Mars too even though it got a bit uneven in its last season. Have you seen Wonderfalls (also cut short prematurely)? Pushing Daisies is by the same guy.

    Elisabeth: well...someone's got to watch PBS. ;)

  5. Elisabeth: on another note, I love that sequence also for its behind-the-scenes aspects. It's pretty much all in-camera lighting effects which as a former DP/gaffer, I think is awesome. It's very well done.
