Pushing Daisies-Complete 2nd Season - Emmy Winner: Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series
Life. Death. And Life Again.
|Dig into a delicious second helping of Pushing Daisies, the multiple Emmy Award-winning series. In this season, Papen County's Pie Maker with a witching finger for waking the dead, and his alive-again love Chuck, have more on the menu than a Terrifying Bee-Man and a Deep Friend Chicken Magnate. The secrets are served deep-dish when family skeletons - both literal and figurative - loom over the Pie Hole and its patrons. As jockey cum waitress Olive Snook joins a nunnery to mend her broken heart, the Pie Maker who broke it hides Chuck from her Aunt Vivian and mother Lily, who believes she's dead. Naturally, this results in resurrecting Chuck's father, who actually was dead. Private Investigator Emerson Cod has daddy issues of his own when his baby-stealing baby-mama finds herself at the center of a damned dam murder case. This wondrous, witty and moving confection is as irresistible as the Pie Maker's three-plum pie. This 4-disc collection includes all 13 episodes from The Complete Second Season of Pushin Daisies|
"The most original, rewarding new TV series in years. David Bianculli, New York Daily News
"...aims directly at senses and emotions...falling somewhere between "Amelie" and a Tim Burton film... Emrah Guler, Turkish Daily News
"The creative genius behind Showtime's "Dead Like Me" and FOX's "Wonderfalls" is back again with another cute, quirky, and dark dramedy. Shawn McKenzie, Entertain Your Brain!
"...boundless energy, quirky style and delightful characters...a dark dramedy set in a fantastical Tim Burton-esque world... Steve Pepdjonovic, Slant Magazine
Editor's NoteDespite 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 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 Chenoweth). Like Tim Burton meets AMELIE, PUSHING DAISIES arrives from Bryan Fuller, the creator of cult favorite series DEAD LIKE ME and WONDERFALLS. This collection presents the show's complete second season.
