Something New…

If you read this blog, I’ve done some standard posts on anything to my life, current events, and potpourri.  Now, I’m going to do next week that I wanted to try:  Live-blogging.

Now, you’re wondering what I’m are going to live-blog about:

  • The second presidential debate?
  • The start of the League Championship Series?
  • The Washington Redskins- Philadelphia Eagles game?
  • HR Talent Management Summit?
  • Cricket?

None (I don’t have enough money for the summit since it’s in Las Vegas, and I would easily gone bankrupt in one day and add to that the economic woes; not a good move for me). 

Next Wednesday, you will see me doing live-blogging during an episode of Pushing Daisies.  The reasons I want to do this are twofold:

1.   It’s my favorite show of all the major broadcast networks and people really need to pay attention to this one-of-a-kind show.

2.   The ratings this week were not looking good and might be cancelled in the next few weeks and I don’t want it to have the same fate as my other favorite ABC show that got cancelled quickly, The Knights of Prosperity.

Most people say the show is too cute, whimsical, too fairy tale for their taste, and too weird.  All of those reasons are true, but beyond the setting and its storybook style, the characters are real and fun.  Yes, you get Ned (Lee Pace) and Chuck (Anna Friel) and their dance of working around their situation, Olive (Kristen Chenoweth) admiring of Ned, but hates to be in the middle, the crazy aunts, and my favorite character of the show, Emerson Cod (Michael Wilbon…I mean Chi McBride).

I hope this live-blogging works out for this show, but let me be honest, it probably won’t work and the show will be cancelled sooner than later.  This means I’ll probably have 2 to 3 live-bloggings left for the show.  I encourage comments during this live blog and if you’re worried about spoilers and don’t want to know what’s going to happen, then watch other TV shows on the internet;  I don’t want people watching their competition on Wednesdays. 

If it goes well, I might continue to do this with other events.  My guess is people will talk to the FCC and get me booted out.  I don’t blame them.
