    Anyone who enters this fantastic and beautifully realized play-scape--which remains ever so slightly ghoulish--will stick around. This is a winner.

    Heavily narrated and prone at times to the precious, Daisies is a show unlike any other, and not everyone will like it. But even those who don't can embrace it as a sign that creativity, confidence and capability have not fled broadcast for cable just yet. Here, they're alive and thriving.
  3. Again, it's back to the writing and the look. Both are superb.

    The facts, then, are these: Pushing Daisies isn’t perfect, but there’s no other dance on TV remotely like it. And to echo last season’s review, that alone is reason to hope it finds a way to avoid death’s touch.
  5. Pace and Anna Friel, who plays Chuck, his childhood sweetheart, are as charming as ever. Even better, their relationship is evolving. Yet another encouraging sign is that the first few episodes promise significant involvement from one of TV's best supporting casts.
  6. A show this whimsical needs a few anchors to avoid floating away altogether. Emerson is one, and the hands-off Ned and Chuck romance is the other.
  7. It still has the same problem, which is exactly where it can take itself, but the ride remains as delightful as the bright shiny colors with which the show lavishly decorates itself.

    Great dialogue and cool imagery don't make up for the incredibly poor quality of the mysteries. At it's core each week Pushing Great dialogue and cool imagery don't make up for the incredibly poor quality of the mysteries. At it's core each week Pushing Daisy's is a who-done-it mystery. Only problem is, the mystery is contrived, impossible to follow and never rewarding. The writers need some help. Expand
