Has anyone else been watching this rather quirky show?
Caught my first episode last night - and I must say, I enjoyed it a whole lot.
This is a Bryan Fuller creation, he who wrote many a Star Trek: Voyager episodes; as well as being creator for Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me, as well as dabbling a little bit in a show called Heroes last year.
The two main leads - Lee Pace and Anna Friel are very good (at least in my opinion), but the guy who seems to steal every scene is Chi McBride of Boston Public fan.
The basic premise is this: A man (Pace) has the ability to touch a dead person - and they live. Touch them again, and they are dead forever.
Touch a living person and not touch them again - and something or someone else in the vicinity will die instead.
Friel plays a woman he has been in love with for a long time (he accidentally killed her dad a long time ago - she does not know this). She dies, he brings her back to life - but since his touch has bought her back to life, he cannot touch her again. Last night, this lead to a very unique kissing scene, as well as his later solution to holding hands in his car.
There were many who felt Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me were done way before they should have been - I have hopes that Pushing Daisies does not follow the same fate. In just this one showing, I have grown fond of the show.
Does anyone else like this program?
