pushing weed.

“YOU HAVE TO SEE IT!,” Jonat says. I stalled for a week, and regretted having stalled that long. For what was presented to me is something I could only describe as a Dr-Seuss-meets-Tim-Burton-style-romantic-forensic-drama, with the narration, and the juxtaposition of child-like visuals with a deeper, more complex theme.

Pushing Daisies is a “forensic fairy tale” that focuses on Ned, a piemaker with the mysterious ability to make the dead live again. The gift is not without its complications—if he touches a revived being a second time, they die permanently; and if a person is revived for more than 60 seconds, somebody else nearby dies (Ned clarifies this in the pilot episode, stating “It’s a random proximity thing.”) Ned, along with his private investigator friend, Emerson Cod, and his childhood sweetheart, the once-dead Charlotte Charles, whom he likes to call “Chuck”, capitalize on the gift by reviving the dead murder victims to ask them about their last moments so they can collect outstanding rewards, if any, and solve the mystery of how the deceased met their end.”
-from the Pushing Daisies Wikipedia entry

Aside from the premise that made it my new favorite show for the season, another reason I got endeared to this show is Anna Friel as ‘Chuck.’ She looks like Mary-Louise Parker from Weeds! Not only that, she also has ‘Louise’ for a middle name. (Plus, she’s only 8 years, 11 months and 7 days older than I am, compared to MLP’s 20 years, 11 months and 17 days.)

Mary Louise-Parker


Anna Louise Friel

They’re not related though, since Anna is from the UK, while Mary is from the US. But yeah, I’ve got ‘Chuck’ to look forward to on Wednesday nights (Thursday mornings here), plus, metaphors and alliteration turn me on. 🙂
