Can I just say that I LOVE this show! I simply love it! It is everything that I wish for from television - beautiful pictures, interesting characters, a little bit of fantasy, a little bit of suspense... Pushing Daisies one-ups even that with a soothing storytelling narrator, wonderful music, and delightful episodes all wrapped up in colorful paper and a happy bow at the conclusion. I LOVE it!
Of course, it's cancelled. I know! So sad! Just like Firefly (the other best show ever to grace television - lasted only one season). But I appreciate what this article says about Pushing Daisies. The second and last season just came out on DVD and we're netflixing it (I intend to own it later to revisit it like one does a favorite childhood book).
Do yourself a favor and watch a couple episodes - you won't be disappointed!
