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 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'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.
