    Has anyone else been watching 'Pushing Daisies?' For me, it's the best new show on TV this year. No huge conspiracies, a little weirdness, some great dialogue, interesting characters, and Jim Dale's narration baked together make for a really good slice of TV pie. If you're not watching, give it a try. I'll catch you up on anything else you need to know.

    I saw the first two episodes, but the narration tends to get quite annoying for me. Its a decent show though.

    I agree. Best new show of this TV season. I was so happy ABC gave it a full season pick up.

    yea i saw the first 2 episodes too.. it's got an interesting concept....

    I'm a fan of Jim Dale (the narrarator)... but yea.. it got sorta annoying.. I don't think it was him though.. i think it's what they're having him say..

    it was cute in the first episode.. but the second episode it got kinda annoying..

    examples.. like ... the "darling mermaid darlings" or.. the "boutique travel boutique.".

    Didn't see the first two eps, but have seen the ones after. I think I love the show. The narration is fun for me, just a very different storytelling style in TV than most are used to. It's kind of like The Office where characters look at the camera often. Gives it a different flavor. The detective guy consistently makes me laugh, as does the blonde's conniving.

    And I think "Chuck" is hot!

    Chuck is hot...but in an ordinary way. And at first Olive was set up to be the villain of the 4, but now I'm kinda rootin' for her.

    And having the same guy from 'Let's Go To Prison' as the detective had me wondering for days where I'd seen him before. I guess he was on Boston Public, too, but I just remember him as the guy who was going to 'woo you.'

    I adore Chuck. I want a soundbyte of her definition of hugs. :) 

    And yes, Chi McBride is awesome. I've loved him in everything I've seen him in. He's a great actor.

    Saw the first episode and quit after that. It just grated my nerves way too quickly.
