ELEVEN REASONS I LOVE PUSHING DAISIES

So few seasons­čî╝Inspired by my recent re-watching of its entirety.
  1. 1.
    The Narrator
    If only Jim Dale narrated my thoughts.
  2. 2.
    Ned the Piemaker
    That smile! Those pies! A truly sweet character who wants the best for those around him. His "gift" isn't always a positive, but he makes it work for him.
  3. 3.
    Color Everywhere
    Has there been a more aesthetically pleasing show, ever? It is so bright and cheery that it can make even the most morbid subject matter seem downright playful.
  4. 4.
    Chuck's Sense of Adventure
    She so badly wants to see the world and experience life. Though her bookishness helped her learn about everything outside her own little bubble, she wanted to find it for herself.
  5. 5.
    Emerson Cod's Sass
    King of side-eye, sarcasm, and smooth-talking.
  6. 6.
    Olive and Digby
    Just a girl and her (boss's/unrequited love's) dog.
  7. 7.
    Young Chuck and Ned
    Two adorable youngsters who wonderfully capture the essence of their older counterparts.
  8. 8.
    The Pie Hole
    Could there be a better name for a pie shop? I also love that the characters often make jokes about it (especially Olive).
  9. 9.
    Chuck's Clothes
    Chuck isn't my favorite character in the series, but her fashion is always enviable.
  10. 10.
    General Whimsy
    The premise is imaginative and somewhat dark, but it's done with such silliness and heart. It's nearly impossible not to smile your way through it.
  11. 11.
    Love
    At its core, Pushing Daisies is about love, I think. Chuck and Ned have an unconventional relationship, but it's filled with sincerity and plastic-wrap kisses.
