5.0 out of 5 stars Kitsch but oh so sweet, 26 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So its the long awaited second season of Pushing Daisies but sadly the last one. This quirky and kitsch drama is reminiscent in parts of a Tim Burton film in technicolour.
Brit export Anna Friel is flawless in her portrayl as Chuck-Ned's childhood sweetheart who he brought back from the dead but who he can never touch.
Special mention goes to the character of Olive played by Krisitin Chenoweth- the ditzy, blonde waitress who gets most of the best lines in this season.
Even if you never saw the 1st season each episode has a quick recap. Great, quirky unoffensive drama at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great gory read., 24 July 2009
Sometimes when you read books about medicine they are filled with jargon that you'd need to be a surgeon to understand-not this book. It's written in a fluid and compulsive way that makes you want to keep on reading eager to find out how medicine developed.
They are some very entertaining stories about the ups and downs of medical progress some are very poignant when you consider that just 100 years ago your chances of surviving surgery were quite low.
A brilliant accompaniment to the BBC series although a excellent stand alone book.
