THE GOOD: PUSHING DAISIES
Simply put, PUSHING DAISIES is reason enough to finally take the plunge and invest in that glorious 42″ HD TV you’ve been eyeing at Best Buy. With its lush visuals and enchanting story, DAISIES was undoubtely the most entertaining and mesmerizing hour of television since last seasons two hour LOST finale. The only question remaining. Can Bryan Fuller and his team make it work for twenty-two episodes? This TV Addict says they can. Stay Tuned…
THE BAD: BIONIC WOMAN
From the uber disappointing opening credits [budget cuts anyone?] to the seen-it-all-before ‘training montage’, last night’s second installment of BIONIC WOMAN most definitely failed to impress this TV Addict. What’s worse, thanks to the surprise and unexpected death of Jamie’s boyfriend and the sudden appearance of Isaiah Washington one thing is abundently clear. There’s a helluva lot more fighting behind the camera of BIONIC WOMAN than there is in front of it. Here’s hoping creators David Eick and Jason Smilovic get their act together, because last night’s episode felt a lot more like a cheaper version of ALIAS than the high-energy action thriller that I expect from the men who brought us BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and KIDNAPPED.
The fact that even after vegging out in front of my television from 7PM on, this TV Addict still couldn’t manage to stay up late enough to watch PRIVATE PRACTICE, LIFE, KID NATION, THE DAILY SHOW and THE COLBERT REPORT. Networks better start getting the axe out now, or this TV Addict’s going to have start downing Red Bull.
