Pushing Daisies

Pushing Daisies is a new show on ABC. It’s a really unique and worth a chance. Even if you’ve missed the entire season, it’s an interesting to just watch - visually speaking. The style in which it’s shot is unlike any other show I’ve seen on TV. The colors are vivid, and the narration is so dominant. The show gives you a fantasy world feel similar to the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The story follows a young man who owns a pie shop. Aside from making pies, this man has the ability to bring back the dead just by touching them. Given this fairly morbid plot, it's interesting that the show still manages to have a colorful and light feel about it. Two of the characters are synchronized swimming performers who dress as mermaids; one with an eye patch that has an eye drawn on the front. Characters such as these allow Pushing Daisies to take black humor to a new level. You can watch full episodes of the show on
