Good News, Bad News: PUSHING DAISIES, Alyson Hannigan & 90210

Good News: Fans will finally get the chance to see the final three unaired episodes of PUSHING DAISIES. Bad News: They’re for British eyes only, with the UK network ITV announcing today that they’ll air all thirteen episodes of the Bryan Fuller series well ahead of their American counterpart ABC.

Good News: HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER star Alyson Hannigan and husband Alexis Denisof welcomed a baby girl into the world on March 24 in Los Angeles. Bad News: Thus putting an end to one of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER’s most entertaining fourth season quirks: “How are they going to hide Alyson’s baby bump this week?” [Source]

Good News: New 90210 showrunner Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair let it slip to EW’s Michael Ausiello that as part of the big changes heading into the show’s second season, actor Dustin Milligan who plays the utterly vapid Ethan Ward is getting the boot. Bad News: So to are original West Bev’ers Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty and Tori Spelling, with Rebecca RKS conceding that, “”I think the center lies with the generation of kids that are in high school now. I’m not interested in casting people for stunt value.” [Source]

    oh hell no — This 90210 news gets me upset. She better not take kelly taylor off. I love the relationship between Silver and Kelly. And I think people have watched cause they do want to see the old characters. I want more Brenda, and I’m excited for Donna to hit the zip. So if they remove those characters it removes the excitement for me – it becomes just another Gossip Girl and not a show that can pull from it’s rich history of the original.
    Kelly was put into the show in a smart way, it works — and I think she could be used more. I think this new show runner doesn’t get “it”. They’ve got a chance to do something special, but to ignore the original cast is a shame. I’m not saying Donna has to be in every episode, but having her come by is a great value to to show (I’m so excited to see her). I also think Brenda was introduced in a natural way – he-l just make her head of the drama dept..
    Ethan, I like him and don’t see the value of tossing him out. Unless they kill him cause they can get some story from that. Here’s the thing – what made the original 90210 great was the fact at it’s core it was about 8 friends. They liked each other and do anything for each other
    just disappointing.

    and when will we see Pushing Daises . It drives me nuts – will we ever see the final episodes of PD, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money. Please, I hope so. I mean things worked out with two more seasons of Friday Night Lights (thank god) so airing 3/4 episodes of the three shows seems workable to me — but hey I’m just a viewer so why do I matter.

    As is 90210 is like 7th Heaven with cursing and sex. If getting rid of all the old folk makes for a better season 2 I’m all for it.

    Congrats to Alyson and Alexis on the birth of their baby daughter. I’m so happy for them

  • Josh Emerson

    I consider the Pushing Daisies news all good. I’m sure someone in the UK will rip and upload the final episodes so we can get them. :D I’ve been waiting for them to air over there for a while.

  • annsensei

    there’s a LOT of shows that I always wanted to see the endings for (most of them seem to be on ABC, hmmm…)

  • ewanspotter

    At least with Alexis and Alyson’s new baby, there’s some happiness in the Whedonverse. :(

  • Silly

    I saw the final a couple of weeks ago, since the german network aired it too

  • Nick

    What a bittersweet day for Alexis and Allyson. Their baby is born, while their friend, Lorne, from Angel passes away at 33.

    Man, ANGEL was such a good show. Great cast, great stories. There’s really been nothing like it on TV since its cancellation.

  • Irish Joe

    For those interested in Pushing Daisies, the UK air dates are:

    2.11 – Window Dressed to Kill – 10 April
    2.12 – Water & Power – 17 April
    2.13 – Kerplunk – 24 April

    So I would imagine they will be available (in English) for US fans to download soon after the UK air dates

    Such a shame this amazing show was cancelled!!
