7. "Pushing Daisies"

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

This is one of those shows weighed down by the very things that made it great - eye-popping visuals (that cost a whole lot of money) and a fantastical plot involving a magical pie-maker who could bring dead people back to life. It was utterly original, but may have fallen victim to the Hollywood writers' strike - after a shortened first season, it was canceled midway through the second.
