Pushing Daisies: Season One Blu-ray Review

Pushing Daisies: Season One Blu-ray Review
Written by Loys JohnsonVideo

Pushing Daisies includes all 9 episodes of Season One on 3 Blu-ray discs, with 1080p VC-1 video transfers. Colors are very nice, extremely strong and remarkable. Even the very beginning of episode 1 will have you gasping for air at how gorgeous it looks. Detail is extremely strong and very impressive. The visual style is very unique and amazing, making for a fantastic Blu-ray presentation. 9/10.

Disc 1:
Pie-Lette
Dummy
The Fun In Funeral

Disc 2:
Pigeon
Girth
Bitches

Disc 3:
Smell Of Success
Bitter Sweets
Corpsicle

Audio
The back of the box might state it includes Dolby TrueHD audio, but in fact it does not. The only options are English and French Dolby Digital 5.1 audio tracks. The Dolby Digital 5.1 track is quite good, dialogue is nice and clear. It does leave a bit to be desired, music in particular, such as hearing Olive (Kristen Chenoweth) sing 'Hopelessly Devoted To You'. It honestly just felt limited, and was a decent track, I could just imagine it being so much better and dynamic. 6/10.

Extras
Pie-Time - Time For Pie
Alright, so the menu for this completely confused me, but it includes interviews and behind-the-scenes of the film, as well on comments on a few guest stars. Pie-Time features are presented in high definition. 2/10.

Blu-news Summary
Pushing Daisies is a fantastic and very original show, which includes a great cast, a fun atmosphere, and much more to love. The video presentation is stunning, and will leave anyone pleased. The audio is decent, although it did feel limited. Extras were minimal and in standard definition. I love the show very much, and the video presentation is simply amazing, that I would say 'Recommended' despite the lossy audio.
