I usually never post a review until I purchase the item so I can comment on the presentation of the feature on the DVD and the special features. But this is the exception...
Pushing Daisies found it's fan-base, the only problem is there was not enough. There are many speculations on why this phenomenal show failed in the ratings during the airing of season 2. From all the information gathered it had nothing to do with the show, no matter what people may say. It was because ABC did not bring it back in the spring of 2008 after the writers strike and waited to do so until fall 2008 (almost 10 months later). Two other shows on the same network failed as well due to the long wait for the next season.
This box set is a bittersweet release because its great to have the second and final season of this amazingly refreshing show. But it is also disappointing because the show will not be returning to TV. There is news that a comic series is coming out soon that will continue the story from where it left off. Hopefully there will be a movie, because that would be awesome and give all the fans the closure that ABC obviously does not care about.
I highly recommend this set to any and all fans. It’s on sale for the first week at least and that price is very good. The only thing I can not comment to highly on is the special features, since it has not come out yet I have no clue what the actual contents of the features are. Though the details on Best Buy suggest they are... plentiful.
