Emerson Cod, Knitting PI

Against my better judgement, I watched this week's "Pushing Daisies" and discovered that Emerson Cod is a knitter. He knits when he's stressed. He knits money cozies to keep in his drawer. He carries his knitting needles with him because you never know when you'll need to knit. I get Emerson Cod. The pie maker Ned...well, not so much. I'm still holding a grudge against this show because of Digby, but I might watch again to find out what Ned's up to. Maybe I need to knit some money cozies. Nah.

Here's what the creator has to say about Pushing Daisies...
Fuller offers a few clues to comfort the worried: The mod squad investigates the death of someone killed by a crash-test dummy in a car called Dandy Lion, which runs on dandelions. The shut-in aunts will have some misadventures in the real world, forcing Chuck to bake antidepressants into their pies. Kristin Chenoweth, who plays a Pie Hole waitress, will be revealed as a former horse jockey. Ned will revive Chuck's father so that she can say goodbye to him, but he tells her a few secrets. And the stress of having a third wheel -- Chuck -- will force Emerson to take up knitting. If any of this sounds preposterous, heed McBride's words:

"It's a fairy tale, man. If you want reality, you have your own life."
