Pushing Daisies – S02E12 – Water and Power Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Rating this episode of Pushing Daisies is an unfortunate task, because I’m fully aware that the writer’s weren’t prepared to make these last episodes the last episodes of the series, so I’m cursed with the task of deciding whether to rate these as regular episodes or having to rate them as the last episodes of a great show. In “Water and Power,” Emerson takes on a case that leads him back on the path of finding his daughter. He takes on the case ... Read More

Pushing Daisies has really raised it's on bar lately. The show has added a ton of depth to the relationship of Chuck and Ned and have managed to keep it interesting and still tied in seamlessly to every episode. The first 15 minutes involves the team solving a funny case about a man with a doll as a girlfriend. While it's unusual for Pushing Daisies to do a short case to start off the episode it came off very well and was packed ... Read More

Pushing Daisies – S02E06 – Oh Oh Oh… It’s Magic Review

As you may or may not know ABC has canceled Pushing Daisies and episode thirteen will most likely be the last episode of the series. It’s sad to hear this news, especially when after watching this episode and how superb it was. This week Ned’s new younger half-brothers are back and invite the crew to a magic show. Unfortunately after his father left, Ned developed a bad taste for magic of all kinds and gets acid reflux whenever he sees magic of any ... Read More

Pushing Daisies – S02E05 – Dim Sum Lose Some Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

This week, I read an article about how Pushing Daisies is in trouble because the ratings aren’t up to par. It’s sad to hear that when it’s one of the best and most innovative shows on TV. Pushing Daisies once again aired a great episode this week and if you’re not watching this show, you need to start. This week, a mysterious man named Dwight comes into the Pie Hole claiming to be friend of Ned’s father from long ago. Ned’s animosity towards ... Read More

Pushing Daisies – S02E04 – Frescorts Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Emerson had been the only person up until this episode who’d never gotten a flashback sequence on his childhood. We finally got one with this episode. The facts are that Emerson grew up being a child gumshoe with his mother who was also a detective. The most revealing thing to come out of the flashback was perhaps the fact that Emerson’s mother was white. While on any other show this revelation would be on your mind maybe the whole episode, but Pushing ... Read More

Pushing Daisies – S02E03 – Bad Habits Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

“Bad Habits” was a much needed episode this week. It tied everything together and progressed the story along very well. All the main characters were in one place and it made this episode one of the best of the season. We’re so used to flashback scenes at the beginning of each episode, it was a welcome surprise to have this one be about Olive, with it somewhat telling us that this episode was more about Olive than anyone else. When looking back at this ... Read More

It's the second episode of the season and Pushing Daisies seems to be treading along nicely. We got a decent episode that had a good mystery to go along with. The idea of this episode focused on new beginnings for everyone and it worked out well in this episode; maybe not as well as we would have liked, but it still made for watchable television. This week Emerson takes the case of a missing girl, the mother of the girl was an interesting ... Read More

Pushing Daisies – S02E01 – Bzzzzzzzzz! Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Pushing Daisies was one of the best new shows of last season, but sadly, it like many other shows was affected by the writer’s strike and its season was forced to be cut short. Luckily ABC decided to renew Pushing Daisies, but with the interruption of a writer’s strike, I wondered whether Pushing Daisies would still have the same magic that it had last season. Fortunately it does. I’m happy to announce that Pushing Daisies is back with all the magic and all ... Read More

Pushing Daisies – S01E03 – The Fun in Funeral Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

It's hard not to like Pushing Daisies. Everything about it screams unique and different and it feels like we're watching some kind of fairy tail unfold in front of our eyes each and every week. The fairy tale continues this week with a rather interesting storyline that not only works but ends up taking us back to the funeral home where it all started. Ned hasn't told Chuck yet that the reason why people he brings back to live can only stay that ... Read More
