Pushing Daisies is a "forensic fairy tale" that focuses on Ned, a pie maker with the mysterious ability to make the dead live again. The gift is not without its complications — if he touches someone that he's revived a second time, they die permanently; and if a person is revived for more than 60 seconds, someone else nearby dies. According to Ned, "it's a random proximity thing," although it affects beings that are similar in nature to the revived — leaving an insect alive will kill another insect, while leaving a person alive will kill another person.
I heard about it from one of my roommates and was pretty skeptical about it. After giving it a watch it is now one of my favorite shows. It is extremely light-hearted, creative, witty and has some of the best writing that I have seen.
ABC.com has all the episodes (4 so far) available for free to watch.
