Storyline

Ned possesses the unique talent of being able to bring the dead to life merely by touching them. However, the person may remain alive only for one minute, or else someone else dies for them. A second touch will render the person dead again, unable to be revived. Through his connections with PI Emerson Cod, Ned revives his childhood sweetheart, Chuck. The trio, aided occasionally by Olive Snook, helps solve the mysteries of various murders, whose murderer is often surprising. Written by Mandy

Goofs

Ned is shown resurrecting parts of organisms, notably the pieces of fruit for his pies and individual leaves. This is completely inconsistent throughout the series, as Ned doesn't revive wooden furniture, paper, sticks and so on. Similarly he can revive the skins of taxidermied animals and bear skin rugs but doesn't revive wool sweaters. He doesn't eat pies made with revived fruit because it would rot again but food derived from other animal and plant sources doesn't revive. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: The Pie Maker had grown accustomed to the feeling his heart made when it looked out his eyes and saw her sleeping in the next bed.

Pushing Daisies
2 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

This was my number one show to watch. I have decided not to start watching a new show so that I won't be disappointed because of it's abrupt end. I loved the show. Even though it was frustrating regarding the plot line, the writing and humor got me every show. They could have found a loophole. There is always a loophole, especially with such a magical plot line. Everyone on the show was very talented, and I could believe their fanciful characters. The musical numbers helped drive the suspension of disbelief. Glee has show us that. The only reason I turned to Glee was because of the loss of Pushing Daisies. It is much less mature and negative in humor, but it has it's fun parts too. I wish that a show like this would get more support.
