Every not-so-often, along comes a show that's different. Wonderfuly different.Pushing Daisies, ''ITV1's Best Saturday Night Offering In Recent Memory'' Time Out. It's the story of Ned, a lonely pie maker whose touch can reanimate the dead. Neat, but there's a hitch. If Ned touches the person again, the miracle is reversed. If he doesn't, a bystander goes toes up. What to do? Easy: Team with a private eye, bring murder victims back just long enough to discover whodunit, and collect the rewards. Things go well until Ned's boyhood sweetie is the next dear departed, and he can't resist bringing her back for keeps! Dig the wit!, style and quirky romance: If you're not laughing, you may need a visit from Ned.

Just a shame the Walkers 10% code doesn't work in a different store, Zavvi's service has been very slow the last few times I've shopped there. I ordered 4 blu-rays on the 18th and not even 1 of them has made it past the "awaiting stock pick" stage yet.

EDIT: Just had a look on Amazon, a third party seller has it listed for £7.70 inc postage

Absolute crap!! I watched about 20 minutes of the first episodes before turning off, I will never get that 20 minutes back!

I loved this program, sometimes you have to give things more than 20 minutes of your half attention before making such a judgement.

did this ever make it to a second season?

Brilliant show, lame ass ending that the studio forced them to tack on.

No 2nd series, rumours of a movie or graphic novel in the near future.

I don't know what people are talking about, the 2nd series is here: play.com/DVD…tml
Unless I'm missing something...

Great show in any case, well worth a watch for people who like something a bit different. Reminds me of Amelie in many ways.

Also agreed that you need to put more than 20 minutes in before making a snap judgement and calling this crap.

There is a 2nd series of this .

I don't know whats worse to be honest, only watching something for 20 mins and saying its crap or watching 6 seasons of something eg lost, then saying its crap, thats a lot more than 20 mins!

Sorry, I meant there was no 3rd series - I watched both series straight through...DOH!

Started off quite interesting and quirky but quickly became tiresome and boring...shame really!

Some episodes were ace, some followed the same formula and became samey, but the weird characters made it worth following IMO. As I said earlier, terrible ending that the creator distanced himself from afterwards.

So sad it was cancelled. Wanted to know what happened to Ned & Chuck. Voted Hot

No spoilers, but they did wrap up the series 'dkny1881' at the end of series 2 didn't they?
