Why I _love_ “Pushing Daisies”: reason #1

Pushing DaisiesI just finished watching tonight’s episode of the ABC show “Pushing Daisies“. In it, the pie maker found himself in a sword fight. Being a pie maker, so far in the series, we haven’t seen any indication that Ned knows how to sword fight. Yet, after his foe spouts off all of the reasons why he is a good sword fighter, in order to strike fear in the pie maker’s heart, Ned the pie maker retorts, “I wanted to be a Jedi!” And then the Star Wars opening orchestral swell starts playing, and the pie maker starts to gain the advantage in the fight.

The reference to being a Jedi was so unexpected. But to this geek, when the pie maker said it, I jumped out of my chair and said, “Yes!” This makes perfect sense as to why he should be able to sword fight. This type of comment was very reminiscent of a comment that could be heard on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer“, one of my all-time favorite TV shows that “were”.

Honorable mention goes to the moment when Lily Charles, feeling a sense of loss about losing Chuck, lifted her eye patch and a couple of tablespoons of water, “tears”, run out from under it.

This show is definitely earning its “must watch” status on my weekly television rotation.
