Creator: Bryan Fuller, Todd Holland
A great cancelled Bryan Fuller show before Pushing Daisies, his next great cancelled show. Like the latter, he uses a supernatural phenomenon affecting his primary character as his premise. A clinically depressed girl named Jaye suddenly finds that man-made items that look like animals begin speaking to her (e.g. ceramic cows, plastic pink flamingos), and that they give her cryptic advice that generally seems to improve her life or the life of someone else. It’s charming, hilarious, and was never given a chance, stuck in a Friday night time slot for four episodes (run out of order, no less) before being cancelled.
My wife and I got the full season, 14 episode DVD and burned through it in a few days. Caroline Dhavernas is very effective in the lead role, and the supporting cast is full of genuine comedic actors. Lee Pace is great as usual as is Diana Scarwid. Firefly fans may enjoy a few guest appearances by Jewel Staite as well.
