Hopelessly devoted to you

I'm watching Pushing Daisies right now for lack of anything else on TV. This is actually the first episode I've ever seen, though I'm familiar with the premise: Ned (Lee Pace) is a pie maker who discovered as a child that he has an unusual power: He can raise people (and dogs and flies...) from the dead by touching them. There are two catches: If he touches them again, they die again, forever. And if he leaves them resurrected for more than a minute, someone else dies to take their place. He forms a partnership with a private eye (Chi McBride); Ned temporarily brings murder victims back to life, asks them who killed them, ices them again and they split the reward. But one day, the murder victim is the love of Ned's life since childhood, Chuck (Anna Friel). He leaves her alive--but can never touch her again.

The waitress at the pie shop, Olivia (played by the always-awesome Kristen Chenoweth) also happens to be madly in love with the pie-maker, even as she's able to manage a healthy relationship with him and his girlfriend. Still, she makes no secret of that, which led to this dialogue that caught my attention a couple of minutes ago:

Olive: Can I ask you a question? If you loved me....

Alfredo: Yes?

Olive: And we could never, ever, ever touch. Wouldn't you eventually get over it and move on letting someone else have the slightest hope that you might move on to them?

Alfredo: If I loved you?

Olive: Yeah.

Alfredo: Then I would love you in any way I could. And if we could not touch, then I would draw strength from your beauty. And if I went blind, then I would fill my soul with the sound of your voice and the contents of your thoughts until the last spark of my love for you lit the shabby darkness of my dying mind.

Olive: Eh, forget it.

Is the whole series worth watching? I've heard good things but the first season was cut short because of the writer's strike, and the second season will be cut short as well as the show had been cancelled due to low ratings. Should I bother?

I was so sad when abc decided to cancel it. bad move abc. i shake my fist at you! it was one of the most creative shows they have on network right now yet somehow shows like 2 1/2 men stay on and on. . . sorry for the rant but in short, yes, watch Pushing Daisies!
