This week's next-to-last episode of Pushing Daisies had me chuckling as always, and yet I couldn't help but feel sad. The show was canceled back in November, and ABC is appeasing fans by showing the final three unaired episodes on Saturday nights (it will soon do the same with Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money. But, with the exception of a few tweaks, the episodes weren't made to be the end of the series. They're just . . . regular episodes. Good episodes, but not the kind that are providing a lot of closure.
For a moment, it almost made me wish the show had just ended back in November — that way, I wouldn't have to go through the pain of losing it all over again! But then the other part of me realizes we're lucky to be seeing more of the show at all. I'm obviously conflicted about this, so I'm wondering: How do you feel about watching the final episodes of canceled shows?
