The Piemaker

I'm absolutely sure I mentioned my fondness for the show Pushing Daisies last season. I like it so much that I bought the DVDs tonight. It just has this charm that I love. Great colors, a nigh-childlike nostalgia for odd little things (windmills, beekeeping, carrier pigeons, etc.) and a narrator with a penchant for poetical statements.

I also love that it's quirky and odd. (I suppose I can relate to quirky and odd for some reason.) It has this wonderful melodramatic 50s background music that when combined with some of the seemingly 50s fashion and cars adds a classic appeal. It also doesn't hurt that the women on the show are gorgeous. Never a bad thing. The new season starts tomorrow night and I'm looking forward to it.

The new Iron Man DVD also proved to be irresistible. It's in an Iron Man head case! My nerd organ was inflamed and could only be satisfied with the purchase.

Oh and Trip and I watched Heroes tonight. It's so good. I'm continually impressed with how they work in little nods to comics, both in art used on the show and the references characters make.
