I'm not sure which shows other people would have heard of. Um... Pushing Daisies was quite a fun little black comedy. It's a couple of years old now. It's about a man who has the power to revive the dead by touching them. The catch is that the corpse is only alive again for a couple of minutes, then dead forever. If he doesn't touch them again someone else dies instead. He uses this ability to ask murder victims who killed them, but the downside is that he and his childhood sweetheart, who he raised from death, can never touch each other.
