Thank You Alex J. Cavanaugh for bringing back Underrated Treasures!!!

TV Series from 2007-2009

I loved this series! The kid's and I 

would actually make a pie, and  

gathered round and watch the 

show eating pie!

I'm a fan of Lee Pace and felt 

Pushing Daisies was highly 

unique and was crushed when 

they cancelled the show!!!

A pie-maker, with the power to bring dead people 

back to life, solves murder mysteries with his alive-

again childhood sweetheart, a cynical private 

investigator, and a lovesick waitress.

Taken from Wiki::

Pushing Daisies is an American fantasy comedy-drama tv series. Starring Lee Pace as Ned, a pie-maker with the ability to bring dead things back to life with his touch, and ability which comes with stipulations.

The cast also included Anna Freil, Chi McBride, Kristin Chenoweth, Ellen Greene, and Swoosie Kurtz.

Touted as a "forensic fairy tale," the series is known for its unusual visual style, quirky charcters, and fast paced dialogue, often employing wordplay, metaphor, and double entendre.

Receiving critical acclaim and received numerous awards. 17 Primetime Emmy Award nominations with 7 wins.

TV Guide included the series in their 2013 list of 60 shows that were "Cancelled too Soon". 


  1. Aw, I remember Pushing Daisies! (That pie-eating tradition of yours is oh-so perfect for this show!) As much as I enjoyed it, Wonderfalls continues to be my favorite Bryan Fuller show, I must admit, heh. (Lee Pace was in that, too!)

  2. I remember this show. I wasn't an avid watcher, but I caught an episode now and again. Great choice!

  3. I remember the show but never watched it. Don't watch a lot of TV.

  4. Thanks for sharing your TV show pick for the Underrated Treasures Blogfest. I do remember this show. Commercial previews of it anyways as I never watched the show.

  5. I remember that!! I never watched it but thought it looked really good.

  6. I never got into that show, but I know those who did were hooked big time.
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

  7. I only got to see the first few episodes of the series before my kids were born and forever changed my watching habits. Now I don't get to sit down and watch anything anymore.

    It was a good show, what I got to see of it. :)

  8. I never saw this though I've heard good things about it.

  9. I LOVED that show. I wish it had a greater following and stuck around a little longer. Still, terrific show.

  10. Never saw it, but the cling wrap kisses are adorable:)

    A Treasure Trove of Music

  11. This looks pretty cute! I keep checking Netflix today every time I see an underrated treasure I want to investigate ... and Netflix keeps letting me down ... but I'll give it another try.

  12. I never saw this, but I gave up TV back in '07, so that's probably why. Netflix to the rescue.

  13. I've heard good things about the show, but I've never seen it. Thanks for sharing about it!

  14. I've heard of it... never really watched it, though. Sounds good. :)

  15. I've heard of it and I like Lee Pace, so maybe I should watch this. I hope it's on Netflix!

  16. I do remember seeing this show's promotions once but never saw an episode. It was too late at night.

  17. I also never actually got around to seeing Pushing Daisies, although I've always wanted to. :-/

  18. I never saw this, but I think I will have to check it out posthumously! :)

  19. Never saw this, but looks interesting. I'm sure I have seen that premise used often.

  20. I remember I thought this had one of the best pilots I've ever seen. The whole show was so creative! And Lee Pace as a total cutie. :D

  21. OMG I love this show.
    But yes, trying to watch it without having pie in the house is just... just... cruel and unusual punishment! Must have pie. :)

    Such a great show. I wish it lasted longer. Poor Ned. He needs to touch the show, just once, so it'll come back to life. ;)

    Though, for a good time... watching Twilight Breaking Dawn 2... "OMG- it's the Pie Maker!!" And having people look at your friend that just shouted this... in the theater... filled with Twihards.
    *happy sigh* Priceless.
