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.

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.
