Bake Me A Pie
March 1, 2009 § 1 Comment
The more I watch Pushing Daisies, the more I fall in love with Lee Pace.
[Hmmm, he has thick eyebrows. Like J. Coincidence.]
He has very sensitive eyes, and is absolutely adorable as the Piemaker. There are rumors that he prefers men over women but I won’t believe anything unless he says it himself.
When I saw the trailer for The Fall somewhere online last year, I was completely drawn in. I am very much attracted to aesthetically appealing movies such as Memoirs of a Geisha and Hero, and The Fall did not disappoint. It was visually stunning, and the soundtrack, coupled with minimal dialogue, added to the beauty of the film. Another bonus is the gratuitous amount of bare, muscular male bodies. Delicious.
On the topic of Lee Pace, one way of knowing whether I’m completely over the relationship is seeing when I’ll be able to watch Pushing Daisies again.
I started watching the show a few weeks after it began, after I had spent the afternoon with JY, who was absolutely raving about it. I had seen the commercials for the show on ABC, but I didn’t even know what the phrase “pushing daisies” meant and was not interested in adding another show to my lineup. JY is a very persuasive woman, however, so after going home, I went online and watched the first episode. And then proceeded to watch the next three episodes consecutively because it was that good.
I told J about it and pressured him to watch, which he did eventually. He liked it, but not as much as I did.
Usually, I despise cheesy romances. Pushing Daisies, however, holds a certain charm in its unique characters and clever dialogue that doesn’t grow old. The forbidden romance between Ned and Chuck was also faintly familiar to me. I’ve been too busy to watch any episodes for this entire semester, and though I’ve wasted much idle time recently, my appetite for Pushing Daisies has waned. I simply don’t think I’ll be able to stomach the cute romantic nature of the show for a long while.
The fact that this season is the last of Pushing Daisies is nothing short of tragic. Why must everything I love be taken from me?! Hopefully a movie is in the works. In the meantime, I plan to watch all of Lee Pace’s movies to fill the void Pushing Daisies has left. I love his acting.
