With a striking visual scheme suggesting a child’s pop-up book and a deadpan whimsicality that sets it miles apart from your typical mystery (the victims are, after all, interrogated on who murdered them), Pushing Daisies has been hailed as one of the stand-out offerings of the new television season. Creator Bryan Fuller’s highly original premise involves a piemaker (Lee Pace) given the ability to bring the dead back to life with the touch of a finger . . . but with a catch. Daisies works as a droll satire on human foibles, a whodunit, and a gentle love story, performed by a collection of oddball characters worthy of Charles Addams.
