Aside from a dopey choice for the 'killer', it's a very good episode.
25 May 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very good episode of "Pushing Daisies", though I thought the ending was a bit too forced--even for a show as bizarre as this one. It picks up with the end of the first episode--with the death of Chuck. You see, with Ned's power, when he revives someone permanently, someone else MUST die. And so, a nearby person died--a scum-bag mortician who delighted in stealing from the dead. His twin brother is approaching Emerson to take him as a client, as he wants to learn who killed his brother--so he can apparently learn where the loot is hidden. But it's not nearly as simple as this--many strange and funny twists follow. However, as I said at the beginning, the Civil War buff at the end seemed too strange even for this show and was a bit forced. But with such a delightful show apart from this, I can allow for this.
