Pushing Daisies

Taken too soon from us, Pushing Daisies suffered at the hands of the writers’ strike in 2008. While inventive and truly one of the greatest ideas in modern television, the show was on and off again before finally getting canceled. Fans around the world mourned, and we’ve tried to find ways to bring it back into our lives ever since.

From talk of movies to musicals and everything in between, all we fans have wanted was to live in this world with Chuck and Ned again. If you haven’t seen the show, it is available for free on CW Seed. While it’s short, it’s definitely worth the watch.

Ned is a pie maker who has a very special gift: He can bring people back to life but only for a minute before someone else must die. Through crimes and bringing his own, dead childhood love back to life, Ned and his group of friends try and navigate all the crime surrounding their quiet little town.

Quirky and unique, the show had a lot to offer fans, and that’s mainly why it is so beloved and missed. It isn’t that it would offer much to television today, but it just had such potential that we didn’t see it get to reach.
