All nine episodes from the first season of the popular US comedy/fantasy series, about a man who helps solve murder mysteries by using his ability to bring people back from the dead. When he was a child, Ned (Lee Pace) discovered that he could bring the dead back to life. Now an adult, Ned makes his living as a pie-maker, using his ability to prematurely ripen fruit for the pies, whilst helping a local P.I. solve his murder cases by asking the dead victims to name their killer. When they're called in to help with the murder of a tourist, Ned realises that the dead girl is in fact his childhood sweetheart, Chuck (Anna Friel). Ned's joy at reviving Chuck is tempered by the knowledge that his 'gift' has one vital drawback - if he touches the person he has raised, they die again, and this time for good. Episodes comprise: 'Pie-lette', 'Dummy', 'The Fun in Funeral', 'Pigeon', 'Girth', 'Bitches', 'Smell of Success', 'Bitter Sweets' and 'Corpsicle'.
