Storyline

Chuck doesn't like the fact that Ned won't talk about himself, while Emerson doesn't like the fact that Chuck's part of the team. Olive also isn't happy with Chuck because she's secretly in love with Ned. When Emerson gets a case, he, Ned and Chuck go to the morgue where corpse Bernard Slaybeck tells them he loved Jeanine from promotions and that he was killed by a crash test dummy. At the company Bernard used to work, Dandy Lion Worldwide, Ned and Chuck find Jeanine and, during a tour hosted by CEO Mark Chase, Chuck finds a crash test dummy with neither clothes nor face.

Hilarious...
25 May 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This second episode of "Pushing Daisies" shows that the show was still on a roll and the magnificence of the first was not just luck. I loved this episode.

It begins like most of the episodes--Ned and Emerson go to interview a dead guy in order to claim a reward for the murder. In this case, however, the dead guy who appeared to be the victim of hit and run said his perpetrator was a crash test dummy! Huh?! This made no sense, so instead of just dropping the matter, they investigate...like real detectives. The trail takes them to the dead man's job--where he was an engineer working on a crazy new car 'the Dandy Lion'. You just have to see the cars, the runway models and the look of this place...it's just amazing. And, oddly, it turns out the dead guy is RIGHT!! But how could a dummy be a killer? Tune in and see.

This one has extraordinary set design, a wonderful guest character (the victim's girlfriend is just amazing) and is funny from start to finish. See this one.
