Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Have pity on series creator Bryan Fuller. The brilliant Pushing Daisies is the third of his quirky television shows (after Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls) to get the axe before its time. Starring Lee Pace as Ned, a pie maker with the unique ability to bring dead things back to life with a touch of his finger, Pushing Daisies was unable to find an audience despite critical praise. In Season 2, the series' last, Ned and his reanimated girlfriend, Chuck (Anna Friel), face the aftermath of Ned's confession that he killed her father when they were younger. Olive (the fabulous Kristin Chenoweth) decides to take residence in a nunnery after discovering the identity of Chuck's real mother. Chuck's aunts Lily (Swoosie Kurtz) and Vivian (Ellen Greene) deal with a mysterious stranger, Dwight Dixon (Stephen Root), who claims to have been a good friend of Chuck's father. And private investigator Emerson (Chi McBride) is on the trail of his long-lost daughter. Guest stars this season include French Stewart, Diana Scarwid, Fred Willard, David Arquette, Mo Collins, and Kerri Kenney. For fans that may have missed the final three episodes after network ABC unceremoniously chose to burn them off, almost five months after Season 2 first aired (and in a different time slot), rest assured you'll find them on this set, along with a bonus featurette.

Incredibly creative, never seen a series like it! Fast, witty, playful dialogue; creative sets and storylines. A pity it was cancelled (probably because the network kept moving it around, so we couldn't find it!) Includes 3 episodes that were never aired with the last one tying up the loose strings. Highly recommended.

This must be the cheeriest series about death, ever. It also has to be one of the richest, most visually rewarding TV shows. The characters are so engaging and memorable - you'll be hard pressed to choose just one favourite. The dialogue is very funny and quotable. If you've missed this, you're missing out.

Excellent series I looked forward to when televised and so sad it in no longer in production and will not be as the stars all moved on. Happy to have these two seasons at least. Funny, intelligent, colorful, original, on and on. Worth the purchase and will enjoy over and over.

I loved this series and I wish that it hadn't ended!(even though it had a very good*but predictable* ending) I used to TiVo it every time an episode came on and I am definately going to get this DVD!

its a shame that this show was canceled before it could finish its second season. it really was fresh air to the over too serious shows out their and a great alternative to a sitcom and reality tv. It is true now that Brian Fuller is free he will undoubtly resurrect the ratings for Heroes, however, I miss this show already. I was fun, random song and dance that seems out of place, ie when Olive was singing and dancing in the shop about her love for Ned and then was caught in the act, the show had the musical numbers but never carried on with the rest of the show as if nothing happened or that its not unusual for some one to bust out and do a song and dance to a camera, its fast paced wit, sometimes literally fast paced dialouge, magical, in a surreal land that you can believe exists but you know if it does its in a far off land. loved the series. Anna Friel owes her career to the show. Come back. Come back.

When I first saw Pushing Daisies on the TV, I knew at once I would love it. And when I first heard the series was getting the axe, I was horrified that such a cute, sweet, completely whimsical show would be gone! It was, and still is, one of my favorite TV shows of all time and Season 2 just doesn't have enough episodes to quwench my want of this series. Buy this DVD is a no-brainer for any Pushing Daisies fan or just a lover of exceptional, well-written, and oddly brillant stories. It is refreshing and quirky with characters you instantly fall in love with; Ned the Pie Maker (what a name!), Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, Olive Snook, Emerson Cod... seeing it go is just sad. I hope hope hope Bryan Fuller tries to revive this sleeping beauty of a story and one of the best fairy tales I've ever had the joy of experiencing.

My cousins introduced me to this series and I thought it looked weird but after the first episode I was hooked! I think I watched the whole rest of season one all in one day. I was on the edge of my seat the whole day. Season 2 is also no disappointment. The actors are always great and the comedy is never chessy. By far the best comedy show out there.
