Trivia
Before the show was axed, Bryan Fuller stated that one of the things he wanted to do in the future was to have narrator Jim Dale appear on screen and reveal who was telling the story.

For most of the series, Ned wore a pair of black Converse Chucks. His love interest is, of course, Charlotte 'Chuck' Charles, who has worn a red pair, as well as a green pair, in other episodes.

In the UK the show aired on ITV1, who only had room in their schedule for the usual 8 episodes. Because there are actually 9 in season 1, ITV1 didn't initially air episode 2 at all, until after the season 2 finale. (ITV2, not widely watched, had aired it after the season 1 finale)

Goofs
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. Additionally, all vegetation is technically dead once it is removed from the root regardless of if it has begun to rot.

Q
What are the "rules" regarding Ned's power?
A
1. First touch, life. Second touch, dead ... forever.2. If Ned revives a person for more than one minute, another person dies. Sort of a cosmic balance.Note: These are two separate and independent rules. A person who has lived past a minute (meaning that another has died in their place), will still die if Ned touches them a second time. Like we saw with Ned's mother she lived past a minute and so Chuck's father died, but she STILL died when she kissed Ned goodnight later on.
Q
Can Ned touch Chuck's clothing/hair/etc.?
A
To revive (or kill) a person (entity), Ned has to make physical contact with that person. Even the thinnest of barriers is enough to keep him from being able to do so. Therefore he can touch Chuck's clothing, he just can't touch any part of Chuck, to include Chuck's hair (we know this because he only touched Digby's fur to revive him). In "The Fun in Funeral" and "The Legend of Merle McQuoddy" Chuck kisses Ned by using just a thin layer of plastic wrap between their lips, and she doesn't die.
Q
Would water create enough of a barrier to enable Ned and Chuck to possibly be intimate underwater?
A
Anything that prevents Ned's skin from coming in contact with Chuck's skin is enough of a barrier. Because water is so easily displaced, it cannot accomplish this requirement. The smallest bubble could cause contact and (re)kill Chuck. Thick lotion, in theory, could act as a barrier as long as it prevents all contact between the two objects (Ned's skin and Chuck's skin).
