Pushing Diasies

From the creator of one the best shows out there, 'Dead like me', comes another beautiful and delightful tv series - 'Pushing Daisies'.

A piemaker named Ned (Lee Pace) has a special gift - he can wake the dead. The first touch gives life, but the second touch means death forever. Keeping the dead alive again for over a minute, someone else will have to die. Emerson Cod (Chi McBride), a private investigator, enlisted the help of Ned to solve murders after he learned of the piemaker's gift. As fate would have it, Ned and Emerson were hired to solve the murder of lonely tourist, Charlotte 'Chuck' Charles (Anna Friel) - Ned's first love. Ned in a moment of confusion and overwhelm, couldn't touch his beloved Chuck for the second time, thus keeping her alive for more than a minute. Her being alive must be kept a secret, especially from Chuck's aunts, the agoraphobics and former Darling Mermaid Darlings Lily and Vivian (Swoosie Kurtz and Ellen Greene). As Ned and Chuck's love continue to grow (despite the fact that they can't touch), Olive Snook (Kristin Chenoweth), the waitress from the 'Pie Hole' (Ned's pie place) who has feeling for Ned grow jealous and is tangled in a cobweb of secrets.

The first thing I noticed in this tv series is the beautiful, surreal setting. It was set in a colorful fifties style with modern conveniences in check. It reminds me so much of the french movie, Amélie. Not only it is a feast for the eyes, the story is very engaging. Though I didn't like the ending much because there were a lot of loose ends, the series is very enjoyable and well worth the watch.
