Great show that shouldn't been cancelled

by Rick In Rockledge on 2/4/2010

So far, as far as this package is concerned, I've only watched the pilot, which I missed on television. But I was already familiar with show and knew what I was getting content wise. The only complaint I have is the jewel case, or what ever the disk containment is called, was damaged. Three plastic pieces that hold the booklet and the two center mounted disk were broken so neither the booklet or center mounted disk stay in place. I know some people could care less as long the disk are okay, but I've always took great pride in taking care of both the content and packaging that it came in. I very rarely let any touch my albums and I'm always fixing scratches on DVDs I get at the local library (idiots). If I can't get a replacement case, I guess I'll have send it back.

Product Overview

Every not-so-often, along comes a show that's different. Wonderfully different. Pushing Daisies, TV Guide's Matt Roush writes, "restores my faith in TV's ability to amuse, enchant and entertain." It's the story of Ned, a lonely pie maker whose touch can reanimate the dead. Cool, but there's a hitch. If Ned touches the person again, the miracle is reversed. If he doesn't, a bystander goes toes up. What to do? Easy: Team with a private eye, bring murder victims back just long enough to discover whodunit, and collect the rewards. Things go well until Ned's boyhood sweetie is the next dear departed, and he can't resist bringing her back for keeps! Dig the wit, style and quirky romance: If you're not laughing, you may need a visit from Ned.

This three disc collection includes all 9 episodes from The Complete First Season of Pushing Daisies!

Editors Note
Note Despite its candy colors and sweet romance, this inventive dramedy never veers into saccharine territory. Lee Pace (MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY) stars as Ned, a piemaker with a very special gift: he can bring dead things--from his dog Digby to rotting fruit to people--back to life with a simple touch. But the second he touches them again, they return to their previous state. If he doesn't, something else meets a dire fate. He uses his ability to solve murders and collect the reward with his business partner, a private detective named Emerson Cod (Chi McBride, BOSTON PUBLIC). But when he begins to look into the death of his childhood friend and lost love Charlotte "Chuck" Charles (Anna Friel), Ned can't allow her to remain among the dearly departed. Since Ned and Chuck can never touch, PUSHING DAISIES presents a fascinating, romantic courtship, but it's perfectly countered by the sour humor of Emerson and the jealousy of witty waitress Olive Snook (Kristin Chenowith). Like Tim Burton meets AMELIE, this series arrives from Bryan Fuller, the creator of cult favorite series DEAD LIKE ME and WONDERFALLS. This release includes all nine episodes of the fantasy show's first season.
Empire 4 stars out of 5 -- "This dark-tinged, sugar-sweet and thoroughly charming fantasy series feels like EDWARD SCISSORHANDS-era Burton meets AMELIE..." 08/01/2008 p.163

ReviewSource Variety.com
Review Director Barry Sonnenfeld has already winced at comparisons to Tim Burton, but given the exploding color scheme and fairy-tale trappings (including narration by Jim Dale, reader of the "Harry Potter" books on tape), they're all but unavoidable, and in a good way...Series creator Bryan Fuller previously explored the great beyond in "Dead Like Me," but this is a far more impressive construct, built around Ned (Lee Pace), who discovers at an early age that he possesses the power to bring the dead back to life with a single touch...The tradeoff: If he touches that person again, they die forever -- and leaving the resurrected alive causes someone else in the vicinity to drop dead, achieving a weird kind of cosmic balance...Fuller fills the pilot with loads of clever touches, from Ned using an elaborate device to pet his Golden Retriever (yep, brought him back too) to the matter-of-fact responses from the animated corpses, making the hereafter, sweet or otherwise, seem not so bad...It helps immeasurably that Pace (who was terrific, as a transgender club performer in the Showtime movie "Soldier's Girl") is an immensely likable lead, full of childlike vulnerability and almost palpable longing for Friel's Chuck. Seldom, however, has a series predicated on keeping two characters romantically apart established such an elaborate barrier to insure they stay that way...While it's hard to imagine "Pushing Daisies" becoming a major hit, the best hope is that a cultish audience will become enormously attached to it (which is almost inevitable) and the series finds a way to sustain its initial charms. Those are both tall orders, but as the premiere makes clear, hope really does spring eternal; this is one pilot that truly deserves to postpone death's embrace.

David Bianculli, New York Daily News The most original, rewarding new TV series in years.
Emrah Guler, Turkish Daily News ...aims directly at senses and emotions...falling somewhere between "Amelie" and a Tim Burton film...
Shawn McKenzie, Entertain Your Brain! The creative genius behind Showtime's "Dead Like Me" and FOX's "Wonderfalls" is back again with another cute, quirky, and dark dramedy.
Steve Pepdjonovic, Slant Magazine ...boundless energy, quirky style and delightful characters...a dark dramedy set in a fantastical Tim Burton-esque world...
