TV Geek Out 49: Pushing Daisies, "Robbing Hood" and "Comfort Food"

TV Geek Out geeks Dana and Heather have a twofer Pushing Daisies geek out! While "Robbing Hood" may not be the show's best episode, it still offered some great cameos (Shelley Berman as a yarn-balling millionaire and Jennifer Elise Cox as his gold-digging wife) and inspired moments (poor Ned in the millionaire's animal trophy room). "Comfort Food," however, might very well rank among Pushing Daisies' finest episodes. A cooking contest, some surprising dirty jokes. "Come and Sleep Hotel"? "Finger Lickin' Donut Holes"? Mercy! Oh, and Chuck's father comes back from the dead. Not to mention Olive's wistful rendition of "Eternal Flame" and a cameo from one of the most awesome character actors around, Patrick Fischler -- who last rocked TV Geek Out's world as Mad Men's horrible comedian Jimmy Barrett -- as the Waffle Nazi. That's right, Waffle Nazi. Dana and Heather geek out about it and come back for seconds.
