  • Doug Elfman

    Pushing Daisies deserves its high praise. It's the best new drama of the fall, finding sweet hope in morbid tragedy.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mike Duffy

    Pushing Daisies is a delicate, rapturously original little television miracle.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    Pushing Daisies is by far the best new series of the fall season.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    Pushing Daisies is perfect.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    It's a gloriously visual fairy tale full of saturated colors and whimsical stories, the kind of romantic comedy/whodunit that should, by rights, captivate a nation starved for quirkiness and delight.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Solid gold from top to bottom, the cast is almost an embarrassment of riches.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Gloria Goodale

    The hour balances its caper-cartoon and ghoulish sensibilities with a crisp pace and well-cast leads.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    It's the best-looking pilot of the season--maybe the best new show, period--even though it may not look that good in the future.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    I wouldn't want to miss a word.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    This may be one of the most beautifully crafted and original TV shows ever to get fall consideration on a big network.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Standing head and shoulders above this fall's other seedlings.

    Variety Full Review
  • Tom Shales

    The lovingly and imaginatively produced pilot has to be the most gorgeous piece of television airing anywhere tonight.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    This Technicolored kaleidoscope fable of life, love and perpetual whimsy restores my faith in TV's ability to amuse, enchant and entertain with endless invention and eye-popping style.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Troy Patterson

    It's a breath of fresh air even for those of us who find our allergies stimulated by the countless particles of whimsy suspended in its thick atmosphere.

    Slate Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    It's a whimsical, romantically inventive and darkly funny pop-up hour about a man (Lee Pace) whose touch can bring the dead back to life (but also, yikes, vice versa).

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    As charming as all that is amid the macabre, Pushing Daisies is a show that only a grown-up can fully enjoy.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    The series, from creators Bryan Fuller and Barry Sonnenfeld, is a masterful mixture of life, romance, optimism and youthful exuberance, all played out under the threat of instant death.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • John Leonard

    Pushing Daisies will drive you crazy or make you smile.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    On top of the stars' subtlety and Fuller's verbal wit, Sonnenfeld's pilot direction ladles layers of flashy frosting--theatrical camera angles, emphatic zooms, intensified color and those heavyhanded moments when the narration can't quite straddle the sap line.

    Newsday Full Review
  • David Zurawik

    At its best--during several moments of exquisite longing between the adult Ned and Chuck--Pushing Daisies feels so right that it almost redeems all the wrongs of such wretched new series as Cavemen or Carpoolers.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Pushing Daisies is good, as well as distinctive.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Aaron Barnhart

    It’s definitely not the same-old same-old, for which ABC is to be congratulated.

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    It is all very beautiful.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Pushing Daisies captivates with an emotionally resonant story and dazzles with its bright visual imagery. Fans of delightfully daft fairy tales, this one's for you.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Charlie McCollum

    Daisies is something you shouldn't miss, particularly if you're looking for something different on TV.

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    All the praise heaped on Pushing Daisies, and every declaration about the dramedy's originality, is merited.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    The story of Ned (Lee Pace), a young man who can bring the dead back to life, is sweetly odd, but also oddly charming.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Heather Havrilesky

    With snappy writing, stunning art direction and a great cast, this really is the new show you don't want to miss.

    Salon Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    Despite the fine work of Pace and Friel--who convey tenderness despite the director’s efforts to stamp it out--the sheer quantity of forced whimsy and visual razzle-dazzle can be exhausting.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    Pushing Daisies is fanciful and fun, but sometimes pushes the daisies too hard.
