Pushing Daisies



I am really, really going to miss this show.  It's chock-full of a bunch of the things I love:

  1. mystery
  2. snappy, witty dialogue, like that of grand old screwball comedies or The Gilmore Girls
  3. color and more color--truly vibrant sets, made to look much like the world of Amelie
  4. retro style
  5. truffle-hunting pigs and bee skeps aplenty
  6. general quirkiness galore
  7. and, of course:  PIE!
The premise of Pushing Daisies didn't attract me at first, but I'm so glad I gave it a try--I now own both seasons on dvd.  Fairytale Hausfrau favorites, absolutely!

I am SO with you! This was the most bizarre, most wonderful show. And I felt so sad when they cancelled it. Couldn't they have at least given me items from set and wardrobe as a parting gift?

Hi there,

Never heard of this. Will look it up...

I'm not familiar with the series either...but if they offer it on netflix, I'll be all over it!

Monica and Celestial Charms--hope you'll check it out and like it as much as I do.

vmichelle, you're right--we totally should have received parting gifts!
