Editorial Reviews

Kiefer Sutherland (24) makes a triumphant return to TV in this smart and hopeful drama about the ties that bind all of us together. Single father Martin Bohm (Sutherland) struggles to raise his emotionally challenged son Jake. But Martin soon discovers that Jake possesses an amazing gift: the ability to see the hidden patterns of numbers that connect every life on the planet. With the help of a brilliant professor (Danny Glover), Martin learns to communicate with Jake and help people around the world. Blending science and spirituality, this unique series will touch you in ways you never thought possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOUCH pilot -- mathematically mesmerizing! January 26, 2012
Kiefer Southerland returns to television in TOUCH, a Fox original drama about a 9/11 widower attempting to raise his emotionally disconnected 11-year-old son. Southerland plays Martin Bohm, whose wife died in the Twin Towers. His son Jake (David Mazouz) seems to be autistic - he doesn't speak (although he does provide occasional narration), he inexplicably climbs cell towers, and he can't stand to be touched. But what's really interesting about Jake is his propensity for mathematical patterns, which he sees everywhere in the world around him. In those patterns, Jake makes connections that are ultimately extraordinary.

The theme of TOUCH is that we are all connected in inexplicable ways. A man in Ireland takes a cell phone video of co-worker Kayla Graham performing in a local club. He tells Kayla she's going to end up a superstar, and then he slips the cell phone into a random backpack. By the end of the episode, that cell phone video is projected on a massive Times Square-style screen in Tokyo - superstardom, indeed!

This is just a small example of the often miraculous interconnections revealed in this episode. Jake is obsessed with numbers on busses, lottery tickets, cell phones, newspapers, and calendars, using them as road maps to people and events that can be life-changing. One such chain of numbers connects the firefighter who tried to save Martin's wife back on 9/11 with a winning lottery ticket and a bus filled with school children. These are global connections that are overwhelming in scope.

TOUCH also features Danny Glover as odd-but-brilliant mathematician Arthur Teller, who tries to explain to Martin how Jake is using something called the Fibonacci sequence to reveal the world's interconnected patterns.

5.0 out of 5 stars extremely promising January 28, 2012
i for one am glad to see kiefer sutherland in a role which doesn't involve horrific world events with massive explosions and destruction. this time out he is in a much more hopeful series where he plays a father of a gifted child who has been mistakenly diagnosed as autistic. he instead has a special ability to communicate through complex math patterns. in this episode, kiefer, the widowed father, a social worker, and a studier of this gift (danny glover) begin working out the true nature of the boy's living experience.

the boy actor is quite good. he narrates the series but does not speak dialogue. kiefer sutherland, in a recent interview, said that the boy actor was the first boy whom they tested with him in a scene. thereafter, they tested him with all these other boys until he protested, saying, "hey, just bring back the first kid. he was perfect." i agree. a mistake on casting with the boy would have been an utter disaster for this show.

there is a summary review on this item's product page that is excellent, written by another Amazon reviewer. it gives all the plot details and actors' names. i suggest you read it next if you want further detail. give this show a try. only the pilot aired in january so that has to hold you until march, when it begins as series tv.

I was trying to figure out why I don't engage with this show - I enjoyed (some of) Tim Cring's Heroes series and Touch follows a similar theme of extraordinary results from an everyday hero. I also liked the pilot but by the fourth episode had completely lost interest. I'll also confess that I'm not a fan of the 'network narrative' genre where Hollywood can manufacture a story line based upon on the coincidental eventual meeting point of a handful of strangers.

I think there are a couple of problems. The first is the mathematical theme - it just doesn't make sense to extrapolate a Math 101 understanding of the Fibbonaci sequence and the Butterfly Effect to give a mute child near psychic powers to predict where the lives of a random bunch of strangers will meet. It comes across as really manipulative and far-fetched. The second is that Keifer has little to do other than act like Lassie's owner, trying to make sense of cryptic messages from a child that won't speak, while filling the dialog gap with cries of "Jake! Jake! Jake!" every other scene.

So Touch is a sentimental show more along the lines of Highway to Heaven (whoa, dig out the history books) than anything particularly scientific as it pretends to be. And after four episodes the plot didn't move forward enough to really capture my attention.

3.0 out of 5 stars Touch: The Complete First Season
I am very disenchanted with this, because each episode is the same old, same old, same old, which gets boring mighty quickly. The acting, however, is very well done.
