Product description

Product Description

Bryan Fuller (the creator of Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me) is back with original and quirky Pushing Daisies. This forensic fairytale follows Ned (Lee Pace, Wonderfalls), a young man with a very special gift. As a boy, Ned discovered that he could return the dead briefly back to life with just one touch. Now a pie maker, Ned puts his ability to good use, not only touching dead fruit and making it ripe with everlasting flavour, but working with a private investigator to crack murder cases by raising the dead and getting them to name their killers. But the tale gets complicated when Ned brings his childhood sweetheart (Anna Friel, Goal), Chuck, back from the dead -- and keeps her alive. Chuck becomes the third partner in Ned and Emerson's private-investigation enterprise, encouraging them to use Ned's skills for good, not just for profit. Life would be perfect for Ned and Chuck, except for one cruel twist: if he ever touches her again, she'll go back to being dead, this time for good.

From Amazon.co.uk

Ignore the fact that ITV, bizarrely, decided to meddle with its UK transmission of Pushing Daisies by lopping out an entire episode. Instead, consider giving this box set a chance, which brings together every episode--fully in tact!--of one of the most interesting new shows to come out of the States.

The concept behind Pushing Daisies is quite simple, but unsurprisingly, it doesn’t take long before it gets more complicated. It follows Ned, a young man who discovers he can bring the dead back to life for a short period of time. Inevitably, he starts using his gift on humans, solving crime as he goes along. Yet things get far more troubled when he then brings the love of his life back from beyond the grave.

In lesser hands, Pushing Daisies could so easily have gone wrong. But in the mits of Bryan Fuller, the man who previously gave us the terrific Dead Like Me, it really does work. The concept gels exceptionally well--thanks also to a cast led by Lee Pace and Anna Friel--and it’s an unpredictable programme that you simply can’t help but enjoy. On the downside, this maiden series is just nine episodes long, and that’s a pity, but a promised second series--off the back of this first run--is a very welcome prospect. --Jon Foster

Master piemaker Ned has a secret. He can bring people back to life. Any further physical contact from him, though, means dead for ever. More than a minute of life unfortunately means sudden death for somebody close by. This suits him fine, only a minute needed to learn the identity of their killers. His mate private detective Emerson can then catch the villains and claim the reward.

Ned needs to be extra careful when with his dog Digby and childhood sweetheart Chuck, both living anew because of him....

Lee Page and Anna Friel shine as the untouchables, real romance impossible for obvious reasons. A lively cast does full justice to OTT roles - especially the two aunts (ex-synchronized swimmers) and Ned's adoring waitress Olive (distraught on learning their saliva is incompatible).

Jim Dale narrates. Witty scripts. Vivid colours. Lush music. Many surprises and lots of laughs, including that hilarious brief allusion to Hitchcock's "The Birds". (Just one regret, apart from only nine episodes and no bonuses. Surely Ned could have found a better name for his diner!)

A fairy tale for adults, "Edward Scissorhands"-style? A bitter-sweet love story? Call it what you will. Simply salute a series that jumps on no bandwagon, preferring to offer something entertainingly and refreshingly different.

Great fun.

Pushing Daisies is produced in glorius technicolour with full candy-tone. It's oh so sweet and centres around the Pie-Maker or Ned (Lee Pace). Ned tragically discovered an unusual ability as a child. One touch from him, and dead things came back to life. One second touch from him, and they're dead for good. If he doesn't touch the reanimated being for a second time, then natural balance takes over and something else dies in their place. So Ned institutes a rule; When he touches someone or something, he touches them again (for good this time) within a minute.

Fast forward many years and Ned is the proud owner of the Pie-Hole (which even has a pie crust shaped roof) and is business partner to snappily-dressed, knitting obsessed private investigator, Emerson Cod (Chi McBride). Ned's reanimation skills come in handy when investigating murders, given that he can collect eye witness testimony from the dead themselves.

Things get turned around when one of the deceased folk turns out to be Ned's old sweetheart, Chuck (Anna Friel). Ned cannot bring himself to touch her again for a second time, thus keeping her alive and in his life - but at the price of never being able to touch her again!

Due to the writer's strike in the States, there are only nine episodes in Series 1 of the show, but they are nine beautifully imagined and lovingly created episodes. Pushing Daisies is a charming, simple yet quirky romantic comedy. Great performances from the leading characters along with snappy dialogue and lots of romantic gazes all add up to create a television show that is truly memorable.

This series is brilliant. Completely bonkers but lovable. It looks like a children's TV show and is quite sweet. Every episode is a murder mystery set in a world that would not look out of place in a Tim Burton movie. If you haven't seen it. Your missing out.
