Sweeter Than a Strychnine Lollipop

Pushing Daisies is like nothing else on television. Sure, it’s still a bit too in love with its own cleverness, and sure, sometimes it threatens to get a bit cloying. But it tugs at my emotions in a way few shows have ever done, and it does so episode after episode, without fail. It’s the only show I’ve seen in ages that has me not only impatient for next week’s episode at the close of each installment, but actively interested in going back and watching the same episode again.
