Product Description

All 13 episodes from the second season of the American comic fantasy series starring Lee Pace and Anna Friel, about a man who helps solve murder mysteries by using his ability to bring people back from the dead. Episodes are: 'Bzzzzzzzzz!', 'Circus, Circus', 'Bad Habits', 'Frescorts', 'Dim Sum Lose Some', 'Oh Oh Oh... It's Magic', 'Robbing Hood', 'Comfort Food', 'The Legend of Merle McQuoddy', 'The Norwegians', 'Window Dressed to Kill', 'Water and Power' and 'Kerplunk'.

From Amazon.co.uk

If you’re looking for proof of the questionable taste of US television programming decision makers, then the scandalous decision to scrap Pushing Daisies after two memorable seasons is a good place to start. As this second season demonstrates, the show is a cauldron of originality, startlingly good writing and real imagination, and it’s well worth trying, even if you’re new to the series.

Pushing Daisies isn’t the easiest show to explain, but the central concept is that Ned, a pie-maker by trade, has a special ability: he can raise the dead with a single touch. A second touch will kill them outright, and there are other repercussions to his gift that crop up, too. This is then the starting point for an intriguing fantasy series, that’s not short on laughs. Ned is teamed up with a private investigator, and the show then becomes what its creators describe as a “forensic fairy tale”.

But that sells Pushing Daisies short. Under the watchful eye of its creator, Bryan Fuller--whose CV also includes the superb Dead Like Me and a lot of work on the maiden season of Heroes, this second season is at times just flat-out brilliant. Across the 13 episodes that make up the series, there are the cases of a nun who was suspected to be murdered, a magician looking to track down who’s killing his animals and the mysterious death of a lighthouse keeper. But if you’re expecting any of these to be standard whodunits, you’re in for quite a surprise.

It’s hard to oversell the qualities of Pushing Daisies, and thus there’s inevitable disappointment that these are the last episodes of the show that we’re ever likely to see. But television this good simply doesn’t come along very often, and it’s really something you don’t want to miss out on. --Jon Foster

Pushing Daisies is one of the best TV shows there has ever been with the exception of Twin Peaks and Carnivale which co-incidentally were both given the brush-off before they had a chance to tell us the whole story and gather more fans deservedly.

Pushing Daisies wasn't given much advertisement by ABC thus no one tuned in apart from the hardcore fans because nobody even knew it was on! Hence, lack of high ratings which lead to ABC being able to have an excuse to stop the show (reportedly because they were a bit worried because Pushing Daisies was quite genre-breaking and cutting edge because of it's style and content and also because it cost a lot to make, most probably because of the latter).

I find it unbelieveable that shows like Friends is allowed to carry on for umpteen needless boring empty series and Pushing Daisies gets ripped off the air after only 22 episodes and 2 series.

No the end doesn't give closure. Only a little, but not much. It rushes to tie up ends and tell us what the characters do next but there is no closure whatsoever, just a MASSIVE cliffhanger and some really tasty leads that weren't follwed up. What a crushing disappointment. Anna Friel and Lee Pace were extremely angry at PD being taken off the air and legions of fans are left weeping into their Rice Crispies and have nothing left but to endlessly discuss what 'might' have happened (Like with Twin Peaks in the 90's ...till now!) ...me being one of them.

Series 2 is just as much as a visual and aural delight as series one. Brilliant plots and character development, beautiful music usage and faultless scripting. Great introduction of sub-characters that don't jarr the main casting too much. Just ..well, perfect.

Pushing Daisies is....Well, its a lot of things;Its a romcom with a twist, a dective show with humour, a real-life fairytale but most of all it is totally breath-taking. Created by Bryan Fuller, a man whom I regard as a genius(check out Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls), this show had a glorious,if crushingly short run. It follows the adventures of Ned,a pie-maker with the ability to raise the dead. If you are familiar with the show, you know the rules and regulations that go with this, if unfamiliar read elsewhere. The main facts are these: he has a girlfriend he can't touch for she has already died, he runs the pie-hole with a waiter in love with him and is a partner in a P.I. firm with a surly,lonely grouch.
Every episode is a little film,bursting with colour and charm. The cast is excellent,Lee Pace and the beautiful Anna Friel starring in the main roles. The stars however, are Chi McBride as Emerson Cod, aforementioned P.I. and Kirsten Chenoweth, whose comedic-timing, serious acting and singing are all brillant.
The music of James Dooley and the narration of Jim Dale only add to the magic.This a show to be cherished,caressed and loved.Included are all 13 episodes. Buy it, Buy it, Buy it!

The bluray of the second series of Pushing Daisies plays fine on UK Region B Bluray players.

Languages are English 5.1 French 5.1 Spanish 2.0 German 2.0

Subtitles also in English, French, Spanish, German

The extras are the same as those on the standard DVD release.

Pictures is 1080p and, as expected, better than the DVD release (though the DVD picture is no slouch)

This is a show that doesn't look like it should work on paper. Ned (Lee Pace) is a pie maker who also happens to have a gift. With one touch, he can bring the dead back to life. But a second touch kills them forever. While he owns a pie restaurant that he runs with the help of Olive (Kristin Chenoweth), he moonlights helping private investigator Emerson Cod (Chi McBride) solve murders by interviewing the murder victims. In the first season, Ned kept one such victim alive. He just couldn't let childhood sweetheart Charlotte "Chuck" Charles (Anna Friel) stay dead. But she has to keep her life secret from Aunts Vivian and Lily (Ellen Green and Swoosie Kurtz).

Yes, the set up takes a little bit to explain. But once you buy into the premise, it works. Every week, the crew takes on a new murder investigation in such locations as a circus or with magicians. Heck, they even get thee to a nunnery. They solve the murder of a modern day Robin Hood. And there's a synchronized swimmer killed by a shark.

But each week also involves ongoing stories about the character's lives. As the season opens, Olive knows a secret about Chuck's mother. As things progress, Emerson hunts for his missing daughter, Ned finds some long lost relatives, and Chuck and Olive become roommates.

All this leaves out my all time favorite episode of the show. "The Legend of Merle McQuoddy" makes so many references and jokes to the Disney film Pete's Dragon a fan of that movie must watch it. Adding to the fun, Jim Dale, one of the stars of that movie, is the narrator of this series.

Honestly, I can't rave about this show enough. It is whimsical and fun. Each week's mystery plays perfectly into the on going storylines. The acting is perfect.
