Pushing Daisies was a really great show though. It was creepy and dark but it had this sort of innocence to it too.

It really needed another season to wrap up so Emerson could find his kid, and so Olive could get a boyfriend . . .

Yes, the writers seemed to completely forget about them.

I guess they figured side characters don't boost the ratings as much as the main characters.

Well I happen to love the last episode. It was beautiful and I know everyone else doesn't like it but I don't really care because I thought it was brilliant.

But they all kind of became main characters, both Emerson and Olive had such big personalities.


Glad you liked it, but personally, for me, I felt robbed.

I watched it all in two weeks (though, less if you exclude days I was too busy to really watch 7 episodes in a day...) so everything was fresh in my mind. Also...everything about that show was just brilliant; especially the references to political philosophers!

As I've said, I'm a bigger fan of magic than divinity, so that's why the ending did not work for me.

Pushing Daisies ruled.
I would have liked to know more about Neds powers...like, which of those was it?

I loved Ned, and was so happy that he was able to become the King Elf in the Hobbit.

Hobbit had a lot of good actors in it, like the Prince dwarf, that's Richard Armitage, who played the devastatingly hot Sir Guy of Gisborne in Robin Hood.

as part of the NBC blitz. (those evil bastards. WE WILL SEEK VENGANCE!!!)
NBC really did clean house, but I do believe it was well within reason. Some of the shows they cancelled were either pretty terrible or just unable to get off the ground. Believe did sound interesting, but after having the painful experience of watching both seasons of Revolution and only realizing how bad it was after they cancelled it... it wasn't happening  :(
