Pushing Daises

There was this short-lived TV show called Pushing Daisies. The main character was a pie maker who has the ability to bring dead things back to life by touching them. The stipulation is that if the dead thing lives again for more than one minute, something else around it dies. And if he brings something back to life, and then touches it a second time, it dies again, this time permanently. He discovers this “gift” when he is a child, and he resurrects his beloved dog, which has been hit by a car. He can never touch the dog again. I loved it, but couldn’t watch it. It made me physically uncomfortable. I think you know where I am going with this. And if you don’t, well, that’s probably just as well.
