    So, any sort of brightly colored show is Pushing Daisies. BTW, this had nowhere near the pallet of PD. I could make a better case for it looking like Suburgatory.

    And there was not a single character that wasn't a "realistic" take on the existing Munster characters. PD was the opposite. Every character was an exaggerated normal person.

    I submit that people are comparing it to PD because of the creator, not because of the show.

    As for lily, you never saw arrested development or know of Ellen degeneres, her wife?

    Oh. I think you got it closer. More like Tim Burton than Bryan Singer.

    You need to watch a little show called "Arrested Development."

    Or a show *much* more to my liking, "Better Off Ted."

    Or a movie called Sirens.

    I don't know if the movie is any good, but the pictures from it are. :)

    Not every brightly colored show is Pushing Daisys. But the lighting, camera angles, set design all felt like PD to me.

    Never saw Arrested Development, nor do I follow the personal lives of people on TV so she is an unknown to me.

    I think you're right. I've never seen it. But that picture gives me a reason to.

    That's too bad. I'm disappointed, although I'm not surprised. It looked wicked expensive to make.

    Again?

    The only way this might work is if they make it a continuous arc like American Horror Story. It can't be a single episode, shock the viewers at the end, format. There's nothing that can be attempted today that will consistently surprise the audience or be creative as a one and done.

    The last reboot had a good idea. They had a follow up episode of one of the old episodes with the original actors. It was "it's a good life", where the boy had psychic powers.

    Of course. It never fails, it seems most anything I like these days gets the axe.

    /kicks rock :mad:

    Oh well, I don't think this show was really suited for NBC. It's seems like it would be more up FOX's alley.
