Catch ABC's "Pushing Daisies" at San Diego; New Promo Unveiled

Yes, I've already seen the pilot for Pushing Daisies a zillion times. (Come on, where were you when I published my advanced review of the pilot--the first one on the Internet, mind you--way back when in May?)

All joking aside, the fact that I've seen the pilot hasn't stopped my eagerness to catch the cast and crew of Pushing Daisies at Comic-Con San Diego at the end of the month for a sneak peek and Q&A panel on Saturday, July 28th at 9:15 am.

So, if you're going to be in SD for the con, I strongly urge you to drop by the screening and try to figure out which gushing fanboy I am.

If that's not enough incentive, how about this brand-spanking-new promo for Pushing Daisies, courtesy of the wonderful folks at Warner Bros. Television?

Come on, aren't you just dying to see the series right now?

I have to admit it was a hard choice between this and the Bionic Woman screening since their times overlap, but in the end this won out.
Besides I'll get to see the beautiful Sackhoff at the BSG panel, so I guess I can wait a few hours.
BTW you going all weekend or just for Saturday? Maybe we'll bump into each other.

Also if the show itself didn't have me dying to see it, the name of his dinner "The Pie Hole" would have got me there.

I've been seeing previews for Pushing Daisies for a while now and the entire time I could've sworn that the girl was Zooey Deschanel. I just found out it's not her but this show looks quirky and entertaining enough that I'll do my best to suck it up and watch anyway.

Matt, nope, it's the adorable Anna Friel, whom I promise you'll fall in love with after you see the pilot. Trust me.

Cinemaniac, I'll be at Comic-Con Friday through Sunday (damn Lost event got shifted to Thursday though), so I will be around!

The chance to see PD and catch a glimpse of Jace? I'm there.

I've seen both the Pushing Daisies pilot and Bionic Woman. Both are great but I think you made the right decision to see PD at Comic-Con. You're in for a real treat! Plus, I'm sure it will look stunning on the big screen. Enjoy!

Yes, I read your review back in May and I'm still jealous that you get to see the pilots so early. Any chance you can slip those of us who can't go to Comic Con a copy of the PD pilot? I'm begging you, man.

Wish I could be there! Pie, too! Thanks for the tip off, Jace.

Kristin Chenoweth is so hot in that show. Oh my God... She's amazing. (She plays Olive Snook)

Anna Friel was hot too.

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian
