Pushing Daisies Season 1
Ignore the fact that ITV, bizarrely, decided to meddle with its UK transmission of Pushing Daisies by lopping out an entire episode. Instead, consider giving this box set a chance, which brings together every episode--fully in tact!--of one of the most interesting new shows to come out of the States. The concept behind Pushing Daisies is quite simple, but unsurprisingly, it doesn’t take long before it gets more complicated.
If you’re looking for proof of the questionable taste of US television programming decision makers, then the scandalous decision to scrap Pushing Daisies after two memorable seasons is a good place to start. As this second season demonstrates, the show is a cauldron of originality, startlingly good writing and real imagination, and it’s well worth trying, even if you’re new to the series.
