Today’s episode is, essentially, a love letter to Pushing Daisies. Because when it comes to short-lived shows, Pushing Daisies is unique in the dramatic responses it creates in fans. One mention of this show and fans will sigh loudly, cartoon hearts practically popping out of their eyes before they begin gushing about how dreamy and quirky and just plain wonderful it was.
Those fans? They’re not wrong. And my friend Amanda is definitely one of them! Listen in as we deep dive into this beloved show and lament along with us as we wish it had lasted longer. (Also, listen to the end for a confession of my love for my VCR…which I used way longer than any person my age should have.)
