Very brief spoilers for Wednesday night's "Pushing Daisies" coming up just as soon as I find out if Chi McBride and Tom Bosley were separated at birth...
I'm kind of glad I didn't have time to watch this episode when it was included in the review screener ABC sent out, because it was quite a bit weaker than the first two. (In particular, the circus one was one of my favorite "Pushing Daisies" to date, and I'm sorry that time constraints prevented me from giving it its due on the blog last week.)
Olive in a nun's habit was a funny sight gag that didn't really work over the course of three episodes. While I accept that the cheap-looking green screen is a part of the show's charm, this week there was so much of it that it got distracting. And I'm still not clear on how everyone figured out that Pigby was responsible for killing Sister LaRue.
But I did like the scene where Olive forced Ned to pry the truth out of her, as well as Chuck's reaction to the news and Ned's realization that he needs to let go of some of the hurt from his father. Even when the show doesn't bring the funny as much as usual, it's still sweet. Something to be said for that.
What did everybody else think?
