If I had a nickel for every time they said they'd wrap the storyline up in a movie

Dear Internets,

Is it possible that I am some sort of angel of death for quality television programming? I begin watching a show from the first episode (I think that's the key) and fall in love with its characters and quirky originality. Critics rave about the show, I set my DVR, choruses of angels and bluebirds sing.

Then the network brutally axes the show mid-storyline, offering vague promises of "a movie or comic book that will tie things up," and I never hear anything again.

RIP Pushing Daisies. (And Veronica Mars. And My So-Called Life. Etc.)

Hillary - I *know*! Why do they torment us with talk of movie plans? I'd rather they just tell me to "suck it up" or something.

Harassedmom - Veronica Mars was such a good show. I only recently gave up hope for a movie.

Perfectlycursedlife - ! Thank you!

wanderingtex - Oh, I know. Let's never speak of such a thing. What's the thing you're supposed to do to ward off a curse? Spin around three times and spit? Knock wood? Done and done.

I'm still pissed about the dropped Veronica FBI storyline and even though I'm not sure if it'd be very good, I'd still go to see a Gilmore Girls movie.
If they don't follow up on Pushing Daisies, I will DIE.

So they're definitely giving Pushing Daisies the ax??? That sucks.
