Visual design

He achieved this by "concentrating on conflicting patterns in different colors, particularly reds and oranges, but per director Barry Sonnenfeld, virtually no blues."[22] Cinematographer Michael Weaver told Variety that he and the producers decided the visuals should "feel somewhere between Amélie and a Tim Burton film — something big, bright and bigger than life."[23]
The distinctive storybook-esque style is continued within the overall design of the visual aspects. Circular background shapes, circular windows, and framing shots within circles was a common theme consistent throughout the series. .Regardless of the fact that the show focuses on murder investigations, the morgue is still painted in candy-cane stripes and many of the outfits worn by the characters are vibrantly colored, bright, and cheery (for example, Olive's work uniform is a lime-green pinstriped dress, and Emerson is frequently seen wearing shades of purple).^ Meanwhile, Emerson investigates a murder at a dim sum restaurant and reunites with Simone, the polygamist's widow and dog obedience trainer who once caught his eye.

.CGI is very prominent in the series, with much use of blue screen technology[25] (the shop window, similar set pieces and outdoor scenery outside often cast a blue halo tinge) and 3D set-extensions (streets, grass and landscape, the pie shop façade).^ Conclusion: I was very entertained by the first episode of The Sarah Connor Chronicles but not half as much as I was by the first episode of Blade: The Series.

The use of matte painting backdrops are also used to complete the look.[26]
Automobiles featured in the series are often mint-condition vintage vehicles, though some newer vehicles have been used (such as a mid-1990s Chevrolet Lumina APV minivan, a Hummer, or a 2006 Toyota Prius). Emerson drives a mid-1960s Lincoln Continental with suicide doors in like-new condition. Ned is also seen driving a very old, but like-new car, a Mercedes-Benz W108. Other characters drive decades-old vehicles as well. 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor cars in their ambulance and hearse configurations figure frequently in the series. Old-fashioned trolley cars can also be seen in several shots panning in to the Pie Hole.

Quirkiness

.Critics have noted that "Pushing Daisies" has a distinctive visual style (a NYTimes critic describes "candy-colored, computer-generated bucolic scenery"[27] and another describes a "Technicolor world that seems to exist at right angles to our own"[28]).^ I enjoyed Pushing Daisies, great visuals and style.

They also note "bizarre dialogue"[28] and the use of alliterative and near-duplicate names of both characters (such as Deedee Duffield, Billy Balsam, Charles Charles, Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, John Joseph Jacobs, etc.) and locations (Boutique Travel Travel Boutique, Darling Mermaid Darlings, Coeur d'Coeurs, etc.).

Music

Pushing Daisies (Original Television Soundtrack)
Soundtrack by Jim Dooley
Released December 23, 2008
Genre Soundtrack
Label Varèse Sarabande
Producer Jim Dooley
The show contains original music composed and arranged by Jim Dooley.[29] The first six minutes of the series pilot, "Pie-lette" were composed by Blake Neely. Dooley describes the musical score as having an Amélie type of sound (Yann Tiersen), which is a "wide-angled," adult fairy tale, with a narrator and this super-real world."[29] It was announced on Dooley's web site that the soundtrack of the first season was originally going to be released by Varese Sarabande on October 21, 2008[30], but was delayed until December 23, 2008, with the album being available in the iTunes music store on December 10, 2008.[31]
Both Kristin Chenoweth and Ellen Greene have backgrounds in musical theater[32][33], and have performed musical numbers in some episodes. In "Dummy", Chenoweth sang "Hopelessly Devoted to You" from the movie musical Grease. In "Pigeon", Chenoweth and Greene harmonized on the They Might Be Giants hit, "Birdhouse in Your Soul". Also in "Smell of Success", Greene sang "Morning Has Broken". Chenoweth had requested to sing "Eternal Flame" in an episode, which Bryan Fuller had agreed to accommodate.[34] The song was sung in "Comfort Food". She also performed a cover of Lionel Richie's "Hello" in "Window Dressed to Kill".

Comics

The show's official website included a comic book that was distributed at the 2007 Comic-Con International in San Diego, which features new mysteries and background information not shown on the televised episodes.[35] The book also contains recaps of aired episodes.[36]
.After the show struggled in the ratings during its second season, Bryan Fuller said that should ABC not pick up the series for additional episodes he would release comic books, and maybe a movie, based on the show in order to wrap up outstanding stories for fans.^ Based on 10046 ratings Sign in to Rate “ Sure...why would I expect ABC to show an… ” .

[37] Warner Bros. has given the okay to Fuller to produce comic books.[38]
Fuller has stated that the "third season" will be twelve issues long and is a fresh take on the zombie genre starring all of the characters from the show. It will be published by DC Comics.[39] On October 13, 2009, Entertainment Weekly reported that Bryan Fuller had just turned in the script for the first comic issue which will feature recurring character Oscar Vibenius. Fuller's currently working with the show’s writers on the next three comic scripts.[40]

Critical reception

Critics responded well to the series, comparing the style and direction to that of director Tim Burton.[43] The pilot, before it officially aired, was well-received by critics who were able to screen it.

It's filled with tongue-tying turns of phrase, fabulous set design and a fantastic cast."[48] Time magazine's James Poniewozik named it one of the Top 10 New TV Series of 2007, ranking it at #5.[49] The show was also heavily promoted by E! online columnist Kristin Dos Santos (who guest starred in one episode as the "'30s Woman") and was featured in her Top 10 shows of 2007.

Narrator:
Ned ran away. No one from school saw him go.
He needed to see what the postcard would show.
His father's new address was the place that he sought.
A home to come home to. In his throat, his heart caught.
But what came out of the door, scared him for life.
His father with two brand new sons and a brand new wife.
A hug is what he wanted, a wink and a quick, 'The joke's on you.'
But what he got instead was a honeycomb chew.
