You Too Much TV...  
Last night's House, M.D. finally made a decision of sorts, one that I'm happy with (though I know not everyone is). But the part of the episode that made the biggest impression was the impressively excruciating punk music produced by the Victim-of-the-week. It was kind of grating in general, but the scene where House and Wilson were trying to talk over it in House's office reached EPIC levels of aggravation. I was squirming on the sofa, ready to howl like a dog plagued by a police-car siren. Good god-- what an awesomely obnoxious collection of sounds!

In other TV news, we just finished Season 1 of Arrested Development on DVD. The finale for S1 was fantastic ("footage not found"), and I vacillate between being sorry that the show didn't make it past S3 and amazed that it actually made it that far. Such clever, twisted, off-the-wall writing. One of the things I love about the show is that it will make some reference to a bizarre event in the past, and often you'll get a visual flash of it-- like the "Dip-A-Pet" business Lindsay had briefly, and the shot is her chasing after an escaping dog that is half-toxic green (in honor of St. Patrick's Day). So much weirdness in a 5-second interval!

Some think it might be the original brothercest show-- Michael and Gob always had a strange vibe between them, mostly due to Gob's relentless flirtation. Of course, the guy was an idiot, so who knows what he was thinking?

Tonight: Pushing Daisies?? No idea-- the Sacramento Kings' basketball game is taking over the channel in my market. Is there a new show tonight? Must I go to Torrent for everything these days?

So, who recognizes the source of the quotation in the Subject line? Huh? Huh?

As far as I can tell there's no new Pushing Daisies this week. *pouts* Gods I love that show. *g*

Good news for me, since we won't be getting it in this market. :(

But I love too. Never thought a phrase like "The Pie Man" would resonate so! Nor a knitting detective. ;)

Yes. *g* And I love what they do with color on the show, and the dialogue is fantastic.

Hmm... I really need a Pushing Daisies icon.

I totally forgot about the Steve Holt subplot!

Mostly, what I remember about S3 are the jokes based on Prison Break, including the 3rd-grade prison play, and also the Michael/GOB scene involving the escape plan GOB drew on his own torso with magic marker. In stick figures. Upside down. Which led to a compromising position when Michael tried to read it and was interrupted by a Security Guard.

Ahh.... good times. ;)
