Fort Bonifacio's Libingan ng mga Bayani came alive as the living party amongst the dead at ETC 2nd Avenue's launch of the newest addition to their already fabulous lineup of shows: Pushing Daisies. There in the middle of the gloomy cemetery, 2nd Avenue treated guests to adorable cupcakes and hearty apple pie. The highlight of the night was a special, uninterrupted screening of Pushing Daisies' first episode.
If you're one who watches shows for its visual appeal as well as its unique plot, then you'll gobble this show right up. The story is one you've never heard before. Pushing Daisies revolves around Ned, the pie maker, who as a child discovered his curious gift (or curse, as the case may be) of bringing the dead back to life with a single touch. Three rules come with his power:
- He can touch a dead thing and it comes back to life.
- If he touches it again though, it dies forever and can never be revived.
- If he lets a dead thing stay a live for more than a minute, something else will die in its place.
After mastering all those rules (the hard way) Ned was able to lead a fairly simple life by using his power to bake pies—rotten fruit tastes fresher and sweeter at his touch—and help solve murder mysteries. (Of course, he never lets the murder victims live past sixty seconds).
