Two quick comments about television

Pushing Daisies is fabulous. Fabulous. I feel no need to go all fandom-mode about it, but I will be watching it avidly.

House this season is also fabulous: the season of House allowed to simply be his obnoxious self. I like the season arc a great deal as well, including the mumble murfle. I don't miss mffffmph at all.

You can go to Fox.com and pick a show to watch on your computer. I've watched the whole season of Bones and half of House this way. Have to have broadband though and it works best with IE, though I've made it work on Mozilla Firefox.

I like House, but I'm disappointed in the lack of evolution of his character. He sometimes seemed to be about to learn from experience last season, but now, not so much. What happened to Seth Green. At the end of the previous episode, his carotid had blown, but as far as I could see, there was no further reference to his character and what happened to him.

I was just saying to somebody that we're seeing little character movement in House himself. Instead he's the still center around which other character arcs happen. The show needs to be very, very careful about how they change House, because they lose the hook if he changes too much.

And the Seth Green character? Do you know what happened to him?

You're thinking of Grey's Anatomy which my mother forced me to watch on Thanksgiving. Presumably that will be cleared up tomorrow!

I agree on both counts!

I hadn't really heard of Pushing Daisies before tonight, but happened to catch it. I was ecstatic to find Jim Dale narrating! He's the one that reads the American version of Harry Potter and I'm not sure I'd like the series as much without him. I'll deffinitely try to catch the show again in the future!

I heart Pushing Daisies, and I'm glad to see someone else does, too! Even though I'm still three weeks behind on it -- I decided to catch up on Chuck first, since it doesn't actually require any thought processes to appreciate... :)

We've only watched the first two episodes thus far, but are going to catch up this weekend.

Pushing Daisies was created just for me. (nods) Okay, I don't know any of the people who came up with the concepts or play any of the roles (though I have briefly met a gentleman who works on the design end...props, I believe), so they didn't know they were making it just for me, but they did. I adore it, but I feel no need whatsoever to tamper with their world. I am purely an observer...but such a delighted observer that I can't imagine my world without this wonderful, wonderful show.

OTOH, I definitely need at least one PD icon. The hero is a piemaker, after all.

Yes! Absolutely! You need icons for your fellow piemaker.

What a wonderful show this is. I agree with your feeling about not having a need to tamper with the show. I'm along for the ride on this one.
