This show I found later, like WAY later. As in it had already been cancelled for a while later. "Pushing Daisies" was just wow. It never should of been cancelled! Wow, but you know how those things go. Mels first told me about this show and upon hearing about it I was like "What? How did I miss this?"
"Pushing Daisies" is about Ned, a pie maker, and the love of his life, a girl named Chuck. You’re probably thinking "oh no, not another romance". Well it is but with a comedic twist. Finding out as a boy that Ned could bring people back from the dead is shocking especially for a child.
Everything has a price though, right? And so does this. If he brings one person back then a minute later something close by will die. It doesn’t even have to be a person. Could be an animal-- bird, squirrel, fly, etc. There’s also the fact that if he touches them again, then they die again but this time for good. Confusing, right? Well not really but you just might have to watch the show to understand. Now, you’re probably wondering about Chuck, Ned's love right? Well my lips are sealed because spoilers! So if you’re dying to know more, than I highly suggest that you check out this underrated show because you won’t be sorry.

This one has been on my TBV (To Be Viewed) list for a while but I never got around to it Jenn submitted this article for me to review. Lucky for me, it was available a couple different ways on my Roku apps. It ran for 2 seasons but both are shortened seasons so it only totals 22 episodes, which is the length of a regular network season. So in a way, it could be lumped into the "one season wonder" category. I didn't catch it the first time around (2007-2009) because I don't watch a lot of tv, especially network tv. They get cancelled too soon. But that’s a rant for another time!
It really has something for everyone. This show has the comedy aspect, a murder mystery, crime show, and a little romance too. I would say its primarily a comedy/mystery since they have to solve a murder every episode. This small town also has quite a bit of secrets too so be careful who is lurking around the corner. They may overhear you.
