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.

Stills from Pushing Daisies



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

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 show is like nothing you have ever seen before. And that is a good thing.

It is the story of the Pie Maker aka Ned (Lee Pace). To the world, he is best known as the owner of The Pie Hole, where he serves delicious pies with his assistant/waitress, Olive (Kristen Chenoweth).

But Ned has a secret. With his touch, he can bring the dead back to life. Of course, there are some conditions. If he touches them again, they are dead for ever and ever. And if he doesn't touch them again in one minute, someone else nearby dies instead.

Since The Pie Hole doesn't pay all the bills, Ned works with private investigator Emerson Cod (Chi McBride). He brings murder victims back to life to find out who killed them, then the two split the reward.

Everything is going along fine until the next murder victim is the girl he calls Chuck, aka Charlotte Charles (Anna Friel). Chuck was Ned's childhood sweetheart, and he just can't bear to let her die, so he keeps her alive. While the two build a non-touch romance, Chuck's two aunts, Vivian and Lily (Ellen Greene and Swoosie Kurtz) mourn her death.

But Chuck's death is just the beginning of the weird cases. There are the human crash test dummies, the dog breeder with four wives, the bodies in the snowmen, and the exploding scratch and sniff book. And that doesn't even mention my favorite case, the headless horseman who is after Olive.

So by now I'm sure you've figured out just how weird this show really is. But it is so much fun, too. While it is a mystery, the mysteries are only a background to explore the relationships of the characters in the show. Each week, those relationships advance, grow, and change. You never know just where they will wind up.

Most reviews heap praise upon the series, and justly so, despite being axed like almost any other off-beat show, like "Death Like Me", "Wonderfalls" or "Firefly" (you should these down too!).

There are almost no extras, but I was particularly taken in with the possibility to switch off the (identical) intros of the shows. An example devoutly to be wished upon all (good) series!

For the rest, forget the reviews; buy it! You won't regret it.

I love this series and refuse to believe it won't be continued. It has fun, magic and a hint of realism in touching on real subjects like unrequited love, longing and friendships, although in a truly surreal way.
It has similarities to Scrubs in that sense, as it's funny but still very touching. A bit Tim Burtonesque, if you liked Big Fish, you're likely to enjoy this as well. It's the most visually stunning tv series I can think of, as you might have figured, I'm a fan..
If you want to enjoy your life, this is a great purchase!

It's as if early Tim Burton had written a TV series. Beautiful scenery, vivid colours, a story that's difficult to describe (it really is) and a premature end. I accidentally caught this on TV in the early noughties, thought it was brilliant and watched it until it simply disappeared. The writing has a lightness and with we rarely see in more heavy handed telegraphing series. Brilliantly cast, well played and directed. The verbal wit and balance of the macabre and comedy make it one of the series I wish had gone on.

All of the discs work and are not scratched or broken in any way. I enjoyed this series a lot more than I thought I would, and I especially like Lee Pace as Ned. I plan on watching the second season soon, although it may take me a bit longer to buy it, as the prices of all of the Pushing Daisies DVDs appear to have been raised rather significantly.
