Geekarooni.com » Why I Love Daisies

geeks can be girly too, y’know.

October 21, 2007 |

As you may have noticed here in my blog, I have a certain fondness for daisies. I don’t know why I like them, even though it is considered as a very ordinary flower but sometimes you just like something for being special for you, not because it is considered special by everyone else.

Which is the reason why I was so curious about the new show . I wanted to know what it was about and why do they have my favorite flower in their title. That and it got generally good reviews from just about everywhere I checked. I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a genius of a show.

Pushing Daisies is a fairy tale like I’ve never seen before. It has everything from a prince, a princess and a sidekick of some sort. It has suspense, mystery, comedy, romance and dead bodies coming to life. Haha, I know that sounded weird but trust me on this, it is a morbidly addicting forensic fairy tale about a Pie Maker and his very special gift. Ned (the pie maker) can touch dead bodies and bring it back to life. If he touches it again, it stays dead forever. If he doesn’t touch it back to die in 60 seconds another living being closest to the undead becomes well, dead. Enters the private investigator who discovered his unique ability by accident. He makes Ned a deal. They solve murders by asking the victim who killed him/her and they split the reward money in half. All is swell and dandy until Ned brought back Chuck, his childhood crush and first kiss back to life. Chuck was murdered in a cruise ship and they were supposed to solve her death. The problem was Ned couldn’t bring Chuck back to being dead now that he found her again so another one dies in her place and she remains not dead. Off to pursue their romance yet again…though Ned could never touch Chuck ever again or else she will die, yet again. So now the three are off solving murders and collecting reward money, as we will see in every episode of this series.

If that isn’t interesting, I don’t know what is. I love crime/forensic dramas, I can watch them all day. Well actually I did when I had my very own CSI marathon which was freaky because after watching it for hours and hours it made me a bit paranoid when I got out of the house. Everyone looks suspicious and murderers all of a sudden, lol. So anyway, this can be considered a forensic drama but quite nothing like you’ve seen before (as I am redundantly saying again). It’s a highly intelligent show that not only entertains but can help your imagination grow and look at things in a totally different level. Plus the fact there’s something twisted about not being able to touch the person you love because it will stay dead forever. It’s just on it’s third episode so it’s still early to catch up on the storyline, I highly recommend everyone to give it a chance and watch it!

And off topic, who doesn’t

like receiving awards?! Thank you so much Mindy for awarding me with the . It’s nice to be rewarded for something that I love doing, which in this case is blogging. And what makes this even more special is because of the reason why I was given this, so thanks Mindy!

Now, I’m to give this to fellow bloggers who deserves the stamp of excellence for:

1) doing so well at work/school or their personal lives

2) writing something inspiring and interesting on their blogs.

And the award goes to:

I have a lot of tags to get done and I’m going to do them all I promise! I leave you now with this question: If you have the chance to bring a person back to life for 60 seconds, who would it be and what will you ask/tell him or her?

Oh, wow… I feel honored, but very undeserving… considering I haven’t been blogging much lately.

I feel bad because folks have e-mailed me asking for updates.

I do, however, agree with your selection of the incomparable super nice Chase. He ROCKS and makes my taste buds cheer. 😛

I’ll properly thank you via a blog entry.

I tried Pushing Daisies. I like it so far. It first got my attention because it was created by the same person who produced “Wonderfalls” (MY FAVOURITE ALL-TIME SHOW) which was really short-lived. Wonderfalls was cancelled after 4 episodes. You can watch all 13 episodes (9 unaired) on DVD. It’s DA BOMB, because it fits my quirky sense of humor. 😛 It’s much like Pushing Daisies in terms of comedy style… Wonderfalls is about this very bright educated slacker (lol) who may or may not be hallucinating that inanimate animal objects are telling her to do “good acts”.

The actor “Lee Pace” (lead in Pushing Daisies) was also in Wonderfalls. God, why did they cancel that show!!!

LOVED Pushing Daisies, I think Ned is the best new television character to come out in a long time. I’m a huge Barry Sonnefield fan, ever since the Addams Family movies, and there was a little Swoosie Kurtz in there, too.

Oh! I saw ads for that show- I’d really like to watch it! Hopefully it’s available on their website, so I can catch up. I had no idea the plot was so compelling. Thanks for recommending it!

I have saw this show’s commercials, but I can never remember to watch it! I need to put it in my DVR record list…I never watch anything as it is aired. I wait until later so I can fast forward through the commercials!

At the moment, the only TV shows I follow are Grey’s Anatomy & October Road. I do love crime/forensic shows though, so hopefully I can remember to check it out!
