    Pushing Daisies deserves its high praise. It's the best new drama of the fall, finding sweet hope in morbid tragedy.
  2. Pushing Daisies is perfect.
  3. The hour balances its caper-cartoon and ghoulish sensibilities with a crisp pace and well-cast leads.
  4. It’s definitely not the same-old same-old, for which ABC is to be congratulated.
  5. As charming as all that is amid the macabre, Pushing Daisies is a show that only a grown-up can fully enjoy.

    On top of the stars' subtlety and Fuller's verbal wit, Sonnenfeld's pilot direction ladles layers of flashy frosting--theatrical camera angles, emphatic zooms, intensified color and those heavyhanded moments when the narration can't quite straddle the sap line.

    Pushing Daisies is fanciful and fun, but sometimes pushes the daisies too hard.

    Are people kidding? This show was great - BEAUTIFUL to look at, lovely and whimsical, clever, fresh, and heartwarming. A great cast andAre people kidding? This show was great - BEAUTIFUL to look at, lovely and whimsical, clever, fresh, and heartwarming. A great cast and unique plot really rounded it out - I guess it just wasn't for everyone. If you are into something a little different, as well as some heart and mystery, this was a great place to look! Expand

    about time for a great, quirky, inventive show that doesn't follow the trend of the season!

    I love this show. I think the writing is orginal and funny. Great casting. Art direction and costumes are just wonderful.

    Definitely for Tim Burton fans (and I'm one of them). Great cast, cleverly mordant writing, fun art design.

    A unique show with an interesting concept, but the actual storyline is a bit dull and predictable. I like the cast of characters though.

Hopefully the plot will become more in-depth in the future because this show has the potential to be really great. Expand
