I LOVE Pushing Daisies. Some pictures to illustrate its whimsy:
Bryan Fuller is a genius. I'm already sad without my Wonderfalls. And Dead Like Me, though I'm not obsessively in love with it, was a darn good show too. And it had Mandy Patinkin! So I'm really, really annoyed that ABC has canceled Pushing Daisies. And I'm even crankier because apparently they stopped airing PD episodes after episode 10 - last night - when they promised to air all 13 created episodes of season 2!
Does anyone important care that I'm mad? No. My biggest connection is that I went to high school with a guy who works on Ugly Betty (which I also enjoy, but don't obsessively love/need).
There are PD devoted sites that tell of what you can do to try and fight back against the cancellation. I'm going with the "they're too dumb, it might be a waste of time" train of thought but I did send a letter with daisies in the envelope, daisies on the letter, and daisies on the envelope!
Maybe I shall have to come to terms with the fact that if a show is creative genius, it's doomed. But I am, most definitely, a member of the Bryan Fuller fan club.
And the Lee Pace fan club.
And a picture for my beloved, lost, 1-season Wonderfalls.
CREATIVE GENIUS, people. If I were a millionaire, I'd create a TV network just for Bryan Fuller. If you see him in public and you're a good little Daisies and Wonderfalls watcher, tell him you're sorry and anxiously awaiting his next genius show, or, even better, a network smart enough to renew Daisies.
Here's Lee, Bryan and Anna. If you didn't watch PD, tell them you're sorry they lost their jobs because you didn't appreciate the creative whimsy. TELL THEM.
