Television series of the month. I've watching even more than usual this month, due to the national (and domestic) obsession with MasterChef, and my equally greedy digestion of vampire-saga True Blood, both of which I've blogged about before. So I'm choosing Pushing Daisies instead. This is quirky television, a fairy tale about a man with a special gift - he can bring dead things back to life - which has a tragic twist. It is full of intense bright colours, larger than life characters and a omniscient narrator. It took me a little while to get into it, despite its obvious appeal, but once I go into its rhythm, I did enjoy it immensely. I'm now looking forward to getting my hands on the second (and last) series.
