Pushing Daisies is one of the quirkiest shows I've seen. But instead of coming off cheesy it comes off as poignant and precious. The plot revolves around Ned, a pie maker who can touch dead things and bring them back to life for only a minute or else somebody else has to die. And if he touches the person again they die again. The action picks up when Ned's sweetheart Chuck is murdered and he brings her back to life. He keeps her alive for longer than a minute but now they can never touch again. Ned is very good as the reserved but sweet pie maker and so is Chuck as the quirky and lovely childhood sweetheart. Emerson Cod is good too as the grumpy, money loving detective who works with Ned to bring murder victims back to life to ask them who killed them. And Olive is very funny as the lovesick waitress at The Pie Hole where Ned works. Where the show really shines though is its dialogue which is snappy and touching at the same time. .
I missed watching this when it was on, happened to catch a few minutes of one episode and new it was going to be FAB. I was so excited when they were released went the first day to get. They are FABULOUS, enjoyable, feel good, whimsical and with Jim Dale narrating how could they miss, I find myself smiling through each episode. I am now ordering the series to buy so i can have everyone I know watch them. looking forward to the new season. LOVE LOVE LOVE
