Pushing Daisies


Yes, This is not Disney but I promised my friend that I would do a post about her favorite T.V show. Some of you might have heard of this show and some haven’t, but Ii highly suggest it. After just 2 seasons the show was unexpectedly cancelled and hasn’t come back. Its an amazing T.V show. I fell in love with it after only two episodes. the link below will take you to a website were you can watch the 2nd seasons. Here is a summery of the show.

Pushing Daisies centers on the life of Ned (Lee Pace), a pie-maker gifted with the mysterious ability to reanimate the dead by touching them. There are some conditions to this talent. Ned quickly learns that if something is revived for more than exactly one minute, something of similar “life value” in the vicinity drops dead, as a form of balance. Additionally, if he touches the revived person or thing a second time, it dies again, this time permanently.In the pilot episode, Ned discovers his gift as a child by resurrecting his Golden Retriever, Digby, after the dog is hit by a truck. He later brings back his mother when she dies of an aneurysm. However, in doing this, he accidentally causes the death of the father of his childhood sweetheart, Charlotte “Chuck” Charles (Anna Friel), as the “price” of keeping his mother alive. Even worse, Ned’s mother falls dead permanently when she kisses him goodnight (which is how he learns the effect of the second touch). In their childhood, Ned and Chuck become separated after Chuck’s agoraphobic aunts, Vivian (Ellen Greene) and Lily (Swoosie Kurtz), move in to take the role of her parents, while Ned is shipped off by his father to a boarding school. Inheriting his mother’s baking talents, Ned becomes a pie-maker who owns a restaurant called “The Pie Hole”, which he runs with the help of waitress Olive Snook (Kristin Chenoweth). The restaurant is failing financially when private investigator Emerson Cod (Chi McBride) accidentally discovers Ned’s gift and offers him a proposal: Ned will temporarily bring murder victims back to life, allowing Emerson to inquire about the circumstances of their death, quickly solve the case, and split the reward money with him. The scheme succeeds until they learn that Chuck, whom Ned has not seen since childhood, was murdered while on a cruise ship. When her body is shipped back home, Ned revives her, but cannot bring himself to allow her to stay dead by touching her a second time. The larcenous funeral home director falls dead in her place, Ned and Chuck fall in love again, and he brings her home to live with him under the unique circumstances of their never being able to touch each other, with the exception of an occasional kiss through the protective barrier of a sheet of plastic wrap. Chuck, grateful for her second chance at life, starts to appreciate life as a truly precious resource; and Ned, witnessing her happiness, begins to break out of his lonely shell. Chuck joins Ned and Emerson in investigating deaths for reward money, starting with tracking down her own killer. Emerson initially dislikes Chuck, whom he calls “Deadgirl”, but allows her to take part in the investigation.

It is an amazing storyline…If you follow to the link and watch it you will love it! 🙂 Here is the link:
