Anna Friel, who plays Charlotte "Chuck" Charles with an American accent, also did the voice over for the Dandy Lion SX commercial in her natural British accent (Episode 1.2 "Dummy"). See more »


Ned is shown resurrecting parts of organisms, notably the pieces of fruit for his pies and individual leaves. This is completely inconsistent throughout the series, as Ned doesn't revive wooden furniture, paper, sticks and so on. Similarly he can revive the skins of taxidermied animals and bear skin rugs but doesn't revive wool sweaters. He doesn't eat pies made with revived fruit because it would rot again but food derived from other animal and plant sources doesn't revive. See more »


Emerson Cod: You can't die of evilness.
Charlotte 'Chuck' Charles: Happens all the time; you do something mean or hurtful to someone like tell a secret... Bang! You're dead.
Olive Snook: Or bang! You're not really dead, you're just pretending to be dead while other people who think you're dead are heartbroken.
Emerson Cod: Or bang! You talk too much and you both go wait in the car.

Pushing Daisies
2 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

This was my number one show to watch. I have decided not to start watching a new show so that I won't be disappointed because of it's abrupt end. I loved the show. Even though it was frustrating regarding the plot line, the writing and humor got me every show. They could have found a loophole. There is always a loophole, especially with such a magical plot line. Everyone on the show was very talented, and I could believe their fanciful characters. The musical numbers helped drive the suspension of disbelief. Glee has show us that. The only reason I turned to Glee was because of the loss of Pushing Daisies. It is much less mature and negative in humor, but it has it's fun parts too. I wish that a show like this would get more support.
