They’re baaa-aaack! Ned, Chuck, Emerson & Olive. They’re back! Our Pie friends are back! It has been way too long since I’ve been able to partake in the deliciousness that is Pushing Daisies.
After months of lame reality tv and the last few weeks of uber-dramatic premieres, I’m so happy to be immersed in the sweet sugary-ness of a dramedy. Pithy comments, one liners, zingers and oh! the creative names. *sigh * It’s good to be back in the Pie Hole.
If you’re new to Pushing Daisies and the Pie Hole, I suggest you head to Target and buy Season One on DVD. Or you could (shameless plug ahead) read all my past recaps. Or you could have just watched the recap at the beginning of last night’s episode. They did a good job of condensing an entire season into about 4 minutes. Basically, Ned resurrects people for one minute and if he doesn’t touch them again, someone else will die in their place. Uhm…well, there’s nothing basic about this. But the point is, he can’t touch his girlfriend, Chuck because she’ll die. And in the meantime, they solve crimes with Emerson Cod and bake pies with Olive. While hiding their secret from almost everyone. Like I said, nothing basic about it.
Enough of that, let’s get to last night’s episode. And we’ll begin with the actual murder—let’s just get that out of the way so we can focus on the important stuff—like the characters.
