The End of Pushing Daisies

Well, Pushing Daisies is now officially done.

You may remember that it was canceled back in December. However, there were still three episodes left. And they finally got around to showing those final episodes this month. The third and final one aired Saturday night. I taped it and just finished watching it.

I know series creator Bryan Fuller was disappointed with the end. Mainly because, like a lot of TV shows, he had an overreaching, all-encompassing storyline mapped out. And the show was canceled at a point when he decided to take a break from the main storyline, and do a group of standalone episodes focusing on the supporting cast.

Luckily, the show has a narrator, so through use of the narrator and some clever editing with scenes from previous episodes, they were able to create a coda that wrapped up some of the dangling loose ends, but not all.

But it looks like Fuller is going to get to finish the story. He just got all the i's dotted and t's crossed so he can do a Pushing Daisies comic book. The comic, with the working title of Pushing Daisies: Season 3 is planned to be a 12-issue series, and Fuller is describing it as "a fresh take on the zombie genre."

And don't forget that Pushing Daisies: The Complete Second Season hits DVD on July 21. So everyone, run out and buy a dozen copies! Maybe if sales of the DVD are strong enough, we can pull a Firefly and spawn a movie version.
