ELEVEN REASONS I LOVE PUSHING DAISIES
So few seasons🌼Inspired by my recent re-watching of its entirety.
- 1.The NarratorIf only Jim Dale narrated my thoughts.
- 2.Ned the PiemakerThat 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.Color EverywhereHas 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.Chuck's Sense of AdventureShe 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.Emerson Cod's SassKing of side-eye, sarcasm, and smooth-talking.
- 6.Olive and DigbyJust a girl and her (boss's/unrequited love's) dog.
- 7.Young Chuck and NedTwo adorable youngsters who wonderfully capture the essence of their older counterparts.
- 8.The Pie HoleCould there be a better name for a pie shop? I also love that the characters often make jokes about it (especially Olive).
- 9.Chuck's ClothesChuck isn't my favorite character in the series, but her fashion is always enviable.
- 10.General WhimsyThe 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.LoveAt 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.
