Undoubtedly, the word used most often when describing Pushing Daisies is whimsical, an apt choice to be sure. The series revolves around Ned’s (Lee Pace) ability to bring living things back to life (with conditions), including childhood sweetheart Chuck (Anna Friel). However, Pushing Daisies is more than pure whimsy, it is: a drama of long-lost family members and secrets, a mystery-of-the-week, a sweet and strange love story, and a very funny series—thanks in large part to a wonderful supporting cast headed by Chi McBride and Kristen Chenoweth. For those who enjoy their television shows to be a little off-center, Pushing Daisies is highly recommended.
