The term "feel good viewing" in my experience usually signifies the kind of super sweet, syrupy tripe that basically makes me want to throw up. Yes, I am an extremely girly girl, and I love a happy ending, but all that sentimental, emotionally manipulative clap trap just leaves me cold.
However, I have recently found a television series that makes me feel so good, I quite literally squeal with delight when watching it. My reaction is so full on that it is actually a little embarrassing but it is absolutely guaranteed to make me smile and feel good so I guess why not express my enjoyment?
The series is called Pushing Daisies and it is about a guy who can bring people back to life - but only for a minute at a time. That probably doesn't sound heart warming, but trust me when I say it is totally gorgeous. From the clever storylines and great dialog, to the fantastic production, brilliant costumes (I covet Chuck's entire wardrobe) and excellent acting, the only thing I can fault is that only two seasons were made.
I'm a little late on the Pushing Daisies bandwagon, it aired between 2007 and 2009 but I'm wholeheartedly embracing it now. If you are looking for something to brighten your day, I suggest you get hold of this gem of a show.
