One of my favorite shows Pushing Daisies was canceled in the middle of the story. I hate this and want ABC to bring it back! Everyone who has seen the show, tell me, what you liked about the show. I will tell you why I liked the show but I'm tried so I'll tell you later. ABC BRING IT BACK OR WE'LL SUE!!!!!!!

I disagree. Pushing Daisies was a terrible show and really had no place on primetime TV. Further more, I hope the admins will lock this post for its frivolity and inappropriateness.

Sonic Colores – It looks like it's going to be a good game because I love how the way it makes me grow.

Despite my usual very liberal opinions on things, I have to say on this issue I take a more conservative stance. I do feel that parliament hasn't done enough to correct the issue and hope they fix it before the problem becomes more serious.

Although, both sides on this issue do have their strong points, it's the indecisiveness that is really what's killing the country.

Humorman, you really have very little sense of comedy and timing. I'm not really sure what you contribute to the forums any more.

Dr W, I think what these two are trying to say is that you are not reading the forum descriptions before you post, which means you are posting things in the wrong places. So they are doing debate jokes.

There is no issue to debate here, so I am moving this to Media Discussion which is more appropriate.

Dan, I agree with skool: you have got to learn to post topics in the right forum otherwise people will get angry with you.

That being said, I have no opinion on the show as I haven't watched network TV in years.

Same here.

Isn't Pushing Daisies about a guy that can revive people by touching them?
Those were my two cents.

I though it was pretty alright. Very quirky characters, and visually it was spectacular. For me it had a weird Tim Burton feel to it. Plus it had lots of cleavage.

I sincenrely tried to get into Pushing Daisies but I thought it was too stupid. Coming from a person who owns seven seasons of Scrubs on DVD, that's pretty bad.

I liked the show, but I can see why it was canned. It's too expensive to produce just for the cult following it had. Supposedly the story is continuing in comic form with DC publishing a 12-issue “third season” likely next year. It's being written by some of the same writers from the TV series and is supposed to tie p any loose ends left by the TV series. Apart from that, you aren't going to see the series come back. And honestly, you have no grounds to sue.

It was a good show. Unfortunately, because of the writer's strike, the show suffered poor ratings with reruns in the middle of the season and no fresh story lines (for obvious reasons).


That damn writer's strike killed quite a few shows with potential. Sarah Conner Chronicles, for another.

The Sarah Conner Chronicles wouldn't have gotten a chance had it not been for the writer's strike. It was one of the string of series that were thrown together to add some more content to TV with all of the major shows getting cut short thanks to the strike. If it hadn't been for the strike, the show likely wouldn't have been green lighted at all.

Plus it got canned after the second season, which wasn't hurt by the strike. I just don't think the show managed to get enough of a following to justify its existance. Kind of sucks how they ended it, too.

It was a great show, and although I'm on a comic website, I don't see a comic book of this working any where near as well as the show did.

I guess I could have been wrong about the strike affecting it directly, but I still think all of those schedule changes (the first couple because of the strike, then a few more after) really skewed the viewing audience. I honestly never knew when it was airing on TV.

I think it initially did better because people were starved for entertainment with the strike going on. Once it ended, though, the second season had to compete with all of the big name shows that got cut short in the prior season and it lost a lot of viewers to more popular programming.

As for Pushing Daisies, I don't think it ever had that big of an audience. I was surprised they were able to push for a second season.

Wait, Sarah Connor Chronicles was a bench-warmer?

You've got to be kidding me. It had TERMINATORS. Where the hell else was I going to watch Sarah Connor (1 of my fave fictional characters) fight killer robots with guns ablazing every single week? I'm sorry but what would I have watched, instead of Sarah Connor Chronicles?? Massively-edited reruns of previously-cable shows? Boring space opera that you cannot get into if you missed the 1st season? Hospital soaps that I'm f'ing sick of? What?

The shows that were on at the beginning of the season would have picked up after the holiday break like they usually do. There wasn't any new material, though, due to the writer's strike, so the networks started pulling up second string programming to fill in the time. Most of the shows that popped up during that time have been cancelled by now.
