A Flower to "Pushing Daisies"

Posted By on Wed, Oct 24, 2007 at 9:44 AM

OK, so I've been meaning to write about Pushing Daisies since the debut, what, three weeks ago? Or is it four? I can't do the math.

Anyway, I've been remiss. The fourth episode is tonight, 7 p.m. on ABC. Channel 9 in our bioquadrant.

The premise? Hard to do justice. There's a piemaker who can bring people back to life with his touch. But there are consequences. And he solves crimes with his childhood sweetheart, but he can't touch her, or she'll die. Forever, this time.

I'm still not sure how they're going to keep it up, but the first three shows have been a spectacular mix of fantasy, comedy and drama. A fantadramedy! Added bonus: Enough sweetness to break your heart, or at least your pancreas. You might be able to find an episode somewhere around here, if you've got 42 minutes to spare.

The show is from Bryan Fuller, who has had a hand in everything from Dead Like Me to Heroes to the all-too-short-lived Wonderfalls (A thorn to the Fox execs who canceled the brilliant Wonderfalls after just a handful of episodes!)

Pushing Daisies has just been greenlit for a full season, so get in on it now. They just love it over at Television Without Pity.
