Product Overview

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

Reviews
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.

Quotes
Brian Lowry, Variety ...whimsical, romantic, funny and visually distinctive...with loads of clever touches...
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...
