The show is created by Tim Minear (From Buffy, Angel, and Firefly) and Bryan Fuller, who also worked on the wonderfully bizarre Dead Like Me. And his influence shows here.
It's about a cynical, snarky, slacker working in a Niagara Falls gift shop, doomed to spend her days putting up with annoying people, when one day, inanimate objects start speaking to her, urging to help these people in various ways.
And if she refuses, they sing incessently, a la Michigan J. Frog.
She rightly thinks she's gone insane.
It sounds bizarre, and it is. But it's also damned funny. The first episode was on last Friday, but have no fear! I'm here to let everyone (In the US, at least... Sorry, Koss.) that FOX is rebroadcasting the premiere this Thursday at 9pm Eastern. It also normally runs at 9pm on Fridays.
Since it's rather unique, and clever, it's likely to be canned pretty quickly, so catch it while you can, and enjoy a rare gem.
