One of the most underrated TV shows in recent history. Pushing Daisies is quirky, fun, original, hilarious, fairytail'ish, with brilliant dialogue and a whole lot of innocence and heart. A MUST WATCH.


This show is so special! It's bright, lovely, amazing, and the cast is so amazing! This is by far my favourite show!


Great colourful show! Such a shame it was cancelled!


Not everyones cup of tea but really good if you give it chance.


Excellent show! A very clever and original show. The story, characters, costume and set design, cinematography, narrator - and so much more- really pulls you into a fictional wonderland. It always seems these beautiful and unique shows come and go so quickly without many people taking notice. A rare gem that was canceled way too soon. Fans of this show might also enjoy Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me for television series, Amelie, the movie, is a wonderful comparison to the stylization of this show.


PERFECTION in every episode!!!


Ned and Chuck are the cutest thing.


Loved Season 1, once I got into it, but I felt Season 2 was weaker. Was great to see something different to the usual though!


Great show with a lot of personality.


I love this show and will love it forever. The storytelling hits all the right spots, the imagery is sublime, the characters are adorable, Emerson Cod is my soulmate and if I do not give this a 10, it's because I'm a tough cookie who's a difficult rater. Also, season 2 was just a tiny less superior than season 1 but who cares?
