So rarely has a tv show had me as gleeful about the decor and outfits as Pushing Daisies has. I've been re-watching both seasons this past month and I'd forgotten just how adoreable the show was. It's as if Tim Burton was allowed to re-make Amelie.
It's one of those shows that can make you smirk, and glee at the same time, with a delightful touch of dark comedy and bright theatrics at the same. Another one of those great lost programmes that was unfortunately axed before it even got into a full swing.
Another thing I paticularly adore about this show is the quirky outfits and attire in each episode; from the flight attendant inspired outfits of the Bittersweets taffy emporium staff, to the darling frocks in Chuck's wardobe. All taken with a pinch of 50's nostalgia with a bright colourful touch that off plays the dark humour wonderfully.
It may have been axed before it even really began but it's one of those shows I can happily re-watch and take a few outfit notes from at the time; marvellous!
