This is a weird dark comedy that is awkwardly adorable. Sadly, there is no happy movie ending to this adorkable series. No... Just a cliffhanger, thanks to the writer's strike a few years ago - that left many good shows to die, but had to happen. However, this is still an absolute delight of a show, with a great ensemble cast - and Kristin Chenoweth (Broadway Star) singing her heart out at random times. It's quirky and just downright fun.

Such a fun show! It has the flavor of "The Princess Bride" so anyone liking that movie would probably like this show. Only two seasons--ended way too soon!

This is one of the best TV shows that ever was. It's such a disappointment that it was cancelled; the writing was brilliant, the acting hilarious and the comedy usually quite intelligent, which is probably why it was cancelled, the trend for TV shows at the time it aired was more towards Kardashian-related reality TV or "housewives" reality TV & shows like "Jackass" (*sigh*) so it didn't do well in ratings, but is absolutely worth watching!

A pie-maker with magical powers... a girl named Chuck... a whimsical world of capers and quick banter... too good and quirky to last

Film noir
Quick, witty dialogue
Double entendre humor
Hyper realistic sets
Fairy Tale-like
Sly references to classic films
Unique
Seriously: Not like anything you have ever seen in episodic TV
Characters you care about

Good show, colourful and bright. Mysteries are written well and concluded well. Characters are lovable and it still has its charm. It is too bad that a Season 3 wasn't created....maybe they'll reboot soon.....

A good tv show. Good acting, good plots and has a good mixture of romance, comedy and mystery. Very well done.

Sexual Content: Ned and Chuck are in a romantic relationship. Few kisses through plastic wrap. A scene where a woman enters her boyfriend's house, only to reveal that she is naked (we don't see anything). A scene implies a couple doing **married people things** several beloved characters meet their significant others

Narrator: "At that moment, in the town of Coeur d’Coeurs, events occurred that are not, were not, and should never be considered an ending. For endings, as it is known, are where we begin..."
