"Touch" is a preternatural drama where science and spirituality meet in which we are all interconnected. The show follows a group of unrelated characters. One of these is Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland), a widower and a single father who is haunted by an inability to connect to his mute and severely autistic 10-year-old son, Jake. Martin has tried everything he could do in order to reach his son, but at no success. To spend his time, Jake has cast-off cell phones, disassembling them and manipulating the parts. This allows him to see the world in a different way entirely. Martin is visited by social worker Clea Hopkins. She insists on doing an evaluation of the living situation.

Clea sees Martin as a man whose life has become dominated by a child he can no longer control. Martin discovers that Jake possesses a gift of staggering genius. That is, the ability to see things that no one else can, the patterns that connect everything to each other. Martin is guided by Boris Podolsky, an aging professor with a compelling but unorthodox theory about Jake. The theory is to join spirituality and science together in one happy medium. Created by Tim Kring. Francis Lawrence (Water for Elephants), "Touch" is an inspiring journey of a father and his love for his son with an unique talent for the world to see.

I couldn't do it anymoreRating: 5 likes, 1 dislikes

I REALLY wanted to like this show. I'm all for wonder and beauty and sweet and stuff that gets me all misty, but this show just takes WAY too long to get to the point of it. I watched 8 1/2 episode and halfway through the 9th episode I just said, "UGH! That's IT! I can't do it anymore." I think 8 1/2 episodes is extremely patient. I kept feeling there is a main point or story arc it was getting to but it's stretching that out WAY too long. Not enough interesting things happen in each episode to make me want to continue to try to get to the main point. Numbers are not that interesting a subject to most people, in and of themselves. The idea of interconnectedness is cool, but so far since it's been different people in almost every episode, it doesn't show enough of these people for long enough for you to build a relationship with them to care. I have to be able to empathize with someone and I think Kiefer Sutherland's character is supposed to be that person, but the frustration he has to deal with on a daily basis would drive me insane and at the end of the day, he doesn't really get any answers. His son seems intelligent but is either unwilling or unable to alieve his frustration and just adds to it more and more. I feel he's just stumbling through the dark every moment of his life.

Nice!Rating: 2 likes, 3 dislikes

In the midst of crime, legal and reality tv this show is a nice big dose of wonder and beauty and really does "touch" your heart. It's sweet, tender and dramatic all at the same time and reminds us that we really are all connected on this planet. Read more
