Today we’re throwing back to my review of one of my favorite TV shows of all time: Pushing Daisies. It’s super quirky (and by super quirky, I mean EXTREMELY quirky), adorable, funny, fun, light, bright, and almost disgustingly entertaining. I am completely in love with it, and like everyone else who loves this absolutely unique show, am completely frustrated that it was cancelled early on.
Here’s my review:
So, I thought I’d start my TV reviews with one of my very favorite TV shows that was cancelled unjustly. Pushing Daisies is a unique gem of a show. I have never seen anything like it. Unless there is some show out there that I have completely missed, there is quite literally nothing like Pushing Daisies. The biggest contributing factor to this opinion is the style of the show.
Jim Dale narrates every episode. Listening to his soothing, rich voice every episode only adds to the ambience of this show.Me when I finished the pilot of this glorious and underrated show:
Lee Pace: NED THE PIE MAKER. Pure Adorableness. Doesn’t really want anything more out of life than a comfortable home and life running the pie shop. Until he finds out Chuck was murdered and he brings her back to life.
Anna Friel: Charlotte “Chuck” Charles. Absolutely adorable. Spunky, lively, compassionate. Everything Ned wants and deserves. Except, she’s technically dead. Unfortunately.
Chi McBride: PI Emerson Cod. Keeps it real.
Kristin Chenoweth: Olive Snook. Bursts into song frequently, as KC always should. Hilarious and adorable as the tiny, jealous waitress in love with Ned.
