Pie Pusher

Like I wrote about in my last post, Swamped, I recently did a final project on a TV show called Pushing Daisies. The show is about a man named Ned who owns a pie shoppe, and he can bring people back from the dead just by touching them.

The Pie Hole
While the story itself may mostly be about the adventures that happen due to Ned’s unusual ability; a large part of the show revolves around The Pie Hole, which is the name is the pie shoppe that new owns and runs. The Pie Hole only serves pies, and lots of pies!

Olive, Cod, Bubblegum, and Pimms
The TV show is completely inundated with food, and most of it goes unnoticed unless you are really looking for it. To start off, most of the names of the characters are either names of food or brand names. There is an Olive Snook, Emerson Cod, a dog named Bubblegum, and the alias of Katie Pimms is used.

Solving Food Crimes?
The main character, Ned, and his private detective partner, Emerson Cod, spend their days solving crimes for the reward money. Just about all of the episodes have to do with food in some aspect; in one situation the episode revolves around a Chinese restaurant, or another episode someone died while drinking their morning coffee.

I don’t want to ruin any of the story line for you, so I wont share too much more. But, I if you are a foodie and like watching comedies, then I would suggest you take a look at Pushing Daisies. Its too bad that the show only lasted for two seasons, but it was great while it lasted!
