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.

Compared to first episode, Dummy is only slightly good one of "Pushing Daises"
14 October 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This second episode of "Pushing Daises" has Ned, Emerson, and the just-revived Chuck trying to solve the murder of a scientist killed by a crash test dummy. And a binge-eating Dandelion Girl he left behind who gets involved. While there are many amusing visual touches and lines and I loved many of Kristen Chenoweth's quirks as the waitress Olive in unrequited love with Ned as well as her singing "Hopelessly Devoted to You", for some reason I found this a little off-putting compared with "Pie-lette". Maybe it's seeing Chuck so close to Ned that makes me a little more apprehensive since we know if he touches her again she's dead forever. At least some of that gets solved at the end. Loved seeing Emerson knitting and his results: a vest and gun holders! And the scenes with Young Ned and those frogs were also good. So while this wasn't as good as the first episode, I'm still willing to give "Pushing Daises" a chance.
