"A guy who bakes pies has the supernatural ability to bring dead people briefly back to life with just a simple touch. This ability enables pie guy to help a P.I. crack murder cases by asking victims to name their killers."



No...that's not a plot summary about the episodes, "Everything changes (pilot)" or "They Keep Killing Suzie"...it's the description of a new Fall show on ABC (in USA) - "Pushing Daisies". Kinda makes you wonder...

It's a concept that's been around a lot longer than Torchwood. If Pushing Daisies is going to feel like anything I suspect it will feel like Dead Like Me was created by the same person. I understand that once upon a time it was conceived of as a Dead Like me spin off.

Loved 'Tru Calling' - I was so upset when it was dropped - and thrilled to buy the DVDs with the extra 6 episodes on them.
