HUZZAH! Bryan Fuller’s on top of it all. (A Wonderfalls crossover is coming on PD). I only skimmed the interview…b/c well..I still haven’t watched this week’s new episode of Pushing Daisies. I know, I know. but honestly between my roommates and Rock Band, I’ve had other things on the brain besides TV.
SNL has seriously been disappointing me. I’m slowly cutting shows off and it’s next on the chopping block.
I have a OTH rant inside but I don’t have the energy. It’s so just terrible I can’t stop watching the train wreck. This week’s had one surprisingly good moment with Deb and the bottle. But then they ruined it by the psycho nanny having to be shot the second time. Seriously? Oy.
This, courtesy of TVGuide.com is the coolest thing I’ve read on the internet all week.
What are the chances of Jaye Tyler (the character played by Caroline Dhavernas on Wonderfalls) appearing on Pushing Daisies? Less than five percent? — Gregg
Matt: Ooo, good question! And one that Bryan Fuller (a creator of both shows, as you know) was more than happy to address: “A lot of stars would have to align, but should those stars shine in our favor there’s a fun Daisies episode to be had with a guest character confessing to a murder because an inanimate object told her to do it.”
Either Jaye’s character, Caroline as someone else or both, please oh please show some Wonderfalls love. If it was Caroline as Jaye though that would just be win-win-win. As I also think it would be funny if one of the Reapers hung out in the Pie Hole….
I still haven’t watched hardly any TV this week. When I do get free moments, I turn on the Justice League DVDs.
It’s been so long since there were shows, I have a hard time remembering the newcomers from last fall. Pushing Daisies, Chuck, Big Bang Theory, Private Practice…I’m sure I missed something. The second year can kill even the best of series, so here’s how I think these season twos will shape up.
Pushing Daisies– This show has such brilliant people behind it, it’s more likely to get killed by the network before the quality of writing and acting actually suffer. I think this year it will finally find a stride. Oh how I’ve missed Ned, Chuck, Olive, and Jim Dale’s voice.
Chuck– This was the one show I really truly missed from the strike break. Hopefully Chuck will get some more attention and I’d love to see a guest appearance by Christopher Gorham as Jake. Heee
Big Bang– This is my toss up. Big Bang steadily improved all year, but the Sheldon centric episodes weren’t as funny to me. Yes, he is the funniest, but not when it’s just his neurotic talking for 22 minutes. I’m sure many people think Penny, Leonard and Schrodinger’s cat were a shark jump moment, but I think the dynamic between Penny and Sheldon is so rich, that they could actually keep them together for a while and it be funny.
Private Practice– Oy, I love Addison. and LOVED her return to Seattle Grace. So much so, part of me hopes this spin off codes out. I still haven’t decided if the show will return to Tivo status or not, but I’m interested to see if it’ll get better or lamer.
