Bryan Fuller shows can be a bit mixed for me in that I LOVED Dead Like Me, while Wonderfalls I was more meh on. But after enjoying Hannibal I decided to give Pushing Daises a shot. The visuals were certainly beautiful, but I found that I couldn't really connect to it. Everything seemed a bit too unreal and artificial, especially with the narration. In fact the narrator listing everyone's age down to the minute really got on my nerves!

I wouldn't say that I hated it, and I can certainly see why people would find it charming (hee it was quite jarring to go straight from watching Breaking Bad season 4 to this show), but I wanted to like it more than I actually did I suppose. The premise and how it was all put-together was interesting, and I did like the characters, but at the same time I don't really see myself watching any of the episodes again. Just a bit too whimsical for me I'm afraid. I think I just related more to how miserable and cynical George was on DLM to be honest :P

It has made me want to rewatch Dead Like Me actually! Hmm Pushing Daises had similar themes with Chuck being unable to contact anyone from her previous life, although I understood it less in the case of Pushing Daises as her aunt's would surely have accepted it if they saw Chuck with their own eyes? At least DLM had George attempt to contact her mother, and the show giving us the explanation that she looked completely different now and wouldn't be able to find the right words anyway, but with PD it just felt a bit Idk..mean? to not let the aunt's know that their beloved niece was still around. There were several moments they played as gasp-worthy with the aunt's about to find out, but I was rooting for them to actually see Chuck in those moments, which seemed to go against the grain of what the show wanted you to feel?

Oh and totally random, but I am distraught that they killed off Reggie's character on Hannibal!! The character crossover from DLM is cool, but it's so sad to think of Joy losing both of her daughters. I always really liked Reggie too ("I was told there would be cookies"), her scenes with George were about the one saving grace of the DLM movie.

The first trailer for the Dead Like Me movie is out!!!!! It really really sucks that they lose Rube and recast Daisy (two of my favourite characters!), but other than that squeeeeee

This is bound to please, well, not only fans of the TV show but anyone whose dead sceptical anytime rumours pop up suggesting a feature film of a cult TV series is in the works (because such rumours are usually piss and wind).

“Dead Like Me”, the popular TV series starring Mandy Patinkin and Ellen Muth, is returning in the film of a film – albeit a film that’ll only be available in DVD Stores.

MGM tells us that Stephen Herek (“The Mighty Ducks”) has been roped into directing the new DTV “Dead Like Me” film. At this stage, there’s no word on who’ll be starring in the film – but hopefully they’ll stick with the original gang.

The series told of a Georgia (Muth) a young woman that is regrettably killed by a toilet seat and forced to work as a grim reaper.

Squeeeeee! *dances round the room*

Only one more episode of DLM to go, and then I will have seen every episode they ever made...

George and Rube were my favourites in season 1, but in season 2 I think it's Daisy. Oh I liked when Daisy tells George she's self-involved and always seems to be listening to a voice inside her head, and then we get the voice-over, "Am I". Hee!

And George knew about Ray's death, and Roxy knew and was covering up, right? But Rube doesn't found out? And so is that how gravlings are created, from deaths of evil people like Ray. And if so, how did George manage to get rid of Ray *confused*

And I ship Mason and Daisy. I bet that they were likely to get together in season 3. Damn

[ profile] ba4ever has just ordered season 2 of Dead Like Me for me *dances*

Any other DLM fans on my flist? I've got season 1 on DVD, but I haven't seen season 2 yet at all. Lots of brand new episodes and special features to look forward too :D
