Amazon.co.uk Review

Ignore the fact that ITV, bizarrely, decided to meddle with its UK transmission of Pushing Daisies by lopping out an entire episode. Instead, consider giving this box set a chance, which brings together every episode--fully in tact!--of one of the most interesting new shows to come out of the States.
The concept behind Pushing Daisies is quite simple, but unsurprisingly, it doesn’t take long before it gets more complicated. It follows Ned, a young man who discovers he can bring the dead back to life for a short period of time. Inevitably, he starts using his gift on humans, solving crime as he goes along. Yet things get far more troubled when he then brings the love of his life back from beyond the grave.

In lesser hands, Pushing Daisies could so easily have gone wrong. But in the mits of Bryan Fuller, the man who previously gave us the terrific Dead Like Me, it really does work. The concept gels exceptionally well--thanks also to a cast led by Lee Pace and Anna Friel--and it’s an unpredictable programme that you simply can’t help but enjoy. On the downside, this maiden series is just nine episodes long, and that’s a pity, but a promised second series--off the back of this first run--is a very welcome prospect. --Jon Foster

The Region A release of Season 2 is unlocked and hence can be played on UK players - just waiting for the price of it to drop.

IIRC, I think this was airing in the run up to the World Cup so they had to cut an episode out in order to fit them all in before it started. They did put it up to be watched on their website though.

Such a beautiful show. Why was it cancelled... 8( The second series wasn't so good because they messed with the innocence factor in a lot of episodes but it's still really special.

I never got round to watching the second series, did it manage to end properly before they axed it or will I be be filled with loads of questions I know wont be answered (e.g. reaper)

It will leave you shipwrecked on the island of Oh Why. It's worth seeing and deals a lot more with Olive and Chi McBride (love that dude) but it doesn't resolve. The writer said they were going to finish it off as a graphic novel but I don't know if that happened or is happening. He also said he wanted them to fight zombies or something. I might be remembering badly.
