What I'm Watching: Pushing Daisies (Season Premiere)

Pushing Daisies: Season 2, Episode 1 "Bzzzzzz!" (B+)

I'll give this episode a good grade but note importantly that Olive being at a nunnery is just plain weird. I have no idea where the writers are going there. Yes, it does provide its share of funny moments - Olive singing like in "The Sound of Music" and being shhhed by nuns, confusing "the porter" with "the poor," and yelling at Lily for confessing yet another secret, but otherwise, it's just bizarre. I don't get it. Back at the Pie Hole, things are business as usual, which is a good thing, and it's nice to see everyone back again, especially Emerson, who I do love as a character. I'm very glad this show is back, and I'm looking forward to getting back into it and seeing it develop past its short nine-episode season from last year.
