Pushing Daisies

Have you seen Pushing Daisies? I think it's one of the best new shows and definitely the most creative! If you haven't tuned in yet you should go to abc's website to at least watch the first episode so you know what's going on! If you like Tim Burton movies I believe you'd love this show. One of mine and Matt's favorite things is that the main character, Ned, owns a pie shop called the Pie Hole! :)

Ned was born with a strange "power." If someone (or something) dies he can touch it to make it come back to life. He then finds out if he touches that same someone again they will be forever dead. If he brings someone back to life he must touch them again to make sure they are dead within 1 minute or someone in close proximity must die. (sounds confusing, I know, but you just have to see for yourself! :) )

About the show (from ABC's website):

Grown up Ned puts his talent to good use by touching dead fruit and making it ripe with everlasting flavor. He opens a pie shop. But his gift leaves him wary of becoming close to anyone, as beautiful waitress Olive Snook finds out. His life as a pie maker gets more complicated when private investigator Emerson Cod finds out about Ned's secret. Emerson convinces the cash-strapped Ned to help him solve murder cases (and collect the hefty reward fees) by raising the dead and getting them to name their killers.

Then Ned is handed the case that changes his life forever. His childhood sweetheart, Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, is murdered on a cruise ship under strange circumstances. Her death brings him back to his hometown of Coeur d' Coeurs to bring Chuck back to life, albeit briefly, and solve the crime. But once reunited with Chuck, Ned can't bring himself to send her back. He helps her escape after her grieving aunts, Lily and Vivian (Swoosie Kurtz, Ellen Greene), former synchronized swimmers Darling Mermaid Darlings, think they've buried her forever.

Chuck becomes the third partner in Ned and Emerson's PI enterprise, but she encourages them to use their skills for good, not just for profit. Ned is overjoyed to be reunited with Chuck, the only girl he's ever loved. Life would be perfect, except for one cruel twist -- if he ever touches her again, she'll go back to being dead, this time for good.
