Chuck doesn't tell Ned that she kept her father alive after Ned brought him back, and Dwight Dixon dies because of it. Meanwhile, Ned and Olive are left to solve the murder of one of the contestants ...
Ned possesses the unique talent of being able to bring the dead to life merely by touching them. However, the person may remain alive only for one minute, or else someone else dies for them. A second touch will render the person dead again, unable to be revived. Through his connections with PI Emerson Cod, Ned revives his childhood sweetheart, Chuck. The trio, aided occasionally by Olive Snook, helps solve the mysteries of various murders, whose murderer is often surprising.Written by
Based on a rejected plotline for Dead Like Me (2003) where Ellen Muth's character couldn't collect any souls because somebody was resurrecting them with a touch. See more »
Throughout the series, the way Ned's gift works contradicts itself. Most notably, his entire business is based around touching dead fruit to make it ripe again for use in his pies. When he touches the fruit, it is restored to its pristine physical shape. However when he touches a sentient creature that has died, the broken/harmed/rotted body remains that way. See more »
What got thee to a nunnery?
Oh, Emerson. You really want to know?
Not especially. That was just my attempt at polite wee talk. Moment's passed, so let's talk compensation.

This show is addictively wonderful. The writing and acting are fantastic. Funny, touching, and also intrigue all wrapped into one. Be sure to get this into your DVD player and enjoy it from the beginning to the unexpectedly short end. Watch it, watch it, watch it! There are some great characters and great guest appearances that only help add to the endearing aspect of the show. Kudos to the writers for developing a great storyline that only gets better over time. I just don't understand why this wasn't interesting for the American TV public. Bad time? Too quirky? Not enough studio support? I suspect that the production costs were very high, but all parts of the show (directly, special effects, costumes, sets) are great. Thank goodness it's on DVD, and I can only hope that it somehow comes back in one way, shape, or form.
