Pushing Daisies

Holly thankfully reminded me that Pushing Daisies' second season premiers tonight.
If you missed the writer's-strike-shortened first season than you missed the best new show on television. It's the perfect blend of dark comedy, whimsy, and absurdity. Also, it stars Lee Pace who was incredible in The Fall earlier this year. The rest of the ensemble cast is equally good, and they have great guest appearances from the likes of Paul Reubens and Molly Shannon.

It also features great musical numbers like this adaptation of They Might Be Giants' "Birdhouse In Your Soul":

Do yourself a favor and watch it. You'll be hooked instantly.

Possibly the best show on TV right now.
