Concerning Pie

I have one quick question that you may or may not be able to answer. The ability for you to answer this question is decided based on if you've ever seen the TV show Pushing Daisies. If so feel free to answer. In fact, I prefer that you do. Okay, so, here's a little back story for those of you who've never seen this absolutely amazing show. Ned "the Pie Man" can touch dead people twice. First touch brings life to the corpse, second touch brings death again (if you watched the show you know how it works). The show is based around the unique relationship between Ned and Chuck (Charlotte), his childhood sweet heart. In the first episode Chuck's murdered on a cruise ship and Ned goes to the funeral home to revive her to find out who killed her. Another interesting twist on Ned's ability to bring people back to life is that if he doesn't touch them again within a minute (un-revives them) then somebody else has to die in their place. When Ned does revive Chuck he remembers how much he loves her and decides to keep her alive. The rest of the show is absolutely hilarious and partly revolves around the fact that Ned can't touch Chuck again (without killing her) even though they're in love with each other which makes the show great for the typical hopeless romantic. If you haven't seen the show get it on Netflix and watch it. It's only two seasons (unfortunately) and has something for absolutely everyone. It features a delightful cast including Kristin Chenoweth, Lee Pace and Anna Friel. Now for the question: If Chuck were to be killed again by say, being hit by a car or something, could Ned revive her therefore making the second touch bring her back alive and cancel out the original second touch which would bring her death? Please comment and let me know because I would really enjoy your opinion on the subject. Once again, if you haven't seen this show then watch it because it's amazing and probably the only show that I've seen without being bored during some part of some episode. 

-Warning: The show was canceled rather suddenly leaving a small window open for closure. The writers did an amazing job with the time they had but just be prepared to be left wanting more that you'll never get.-

I haven't watched the show but my girls have. We are going to watch it and then I will comment. The way you described it sounds like a great movie...

Fantastic! Prepare to fall madly in love with all of the characters and be left with unpleasant thoughts about ABC for canceling it.
