    Pushing Daisies deserves its high praise. It's the best new drama of the fall, finding sweet hope in morbid tragedy.
  2. 100
    Pushing Daisies is by far the best new series of the fall season.
  3. The hour balances its caper-cartoon and ghoulish sensibilities with a crisp pace and well-cast leads.
  4. The series, from creators Bryan Fuller and Barry Sonnenfeld, is a masterful mixture of life, romance, optimism and youthful exuberance, all played out under the threat of instant death.
  5. 80
    It's a whimsical, romantically inventive and darkly funny pop-up hour about a man (Lee Pace) whose touch can bring the dead back to life (but also, yikes, vice versa).
  6. All the praise heaped on Pushing Daisies, and every declaration about the dramedy's originality, is merited.
  7. 63
    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 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! Collapse

    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
