...the entire series of Pushing Daisies is on the CW Seed right now! It’s the show with a magical person who can bring people back from the dead, but it doesn’t include any instances of incest, rape, or violent gorn! Or even nudity!
Why you should watch Pushing Daisies instead of Game of Thrones:
It’s cute as fuck
There are only so many times you can watch people get stabbed or have their throats slit or be stabbed multiple times before you honestly have to stop watching. But don’t worry, Pushing Daisies has the cure!
Look, I know Tyrion is snarky as hell, but on the whole, Game of Thrones has been a bit...dour lately. Aside from all the stabbings, there’s also been children dying and that’s never fun. So why not skip the dead kids and instead go straight for hilarious comedy!
It’s about a pie-maker who brings people back from the dead to solve their murders
Look, you either read that description and go “Alright! Sign me up!” or you go “Huh?” In which case, maybe Pushing Daisies isn’t for you. I mean, sure, it only had two short seasons. But it still makes me smile (which is more than I can say for Game of Thrones). And it includes references to They Might Be Giants:
So there you go. If you aren’t watching Game of Thrones, go watch Pushing Daisies. Or, heck, watch them both, although you might get emotional whiplash.
