Grade: meh. It's boring boring boring. It's constructed in the worst sense of the word. It's a cheap tearjerker. And to top it all - it's a PROCEDURAL. Phew. Good buy Keifer.
Good starting point for a series. But the series creator is having the movie 'Knowing' close to his heart.
As a valid favorite of "24" I watched The Touch because of "Jack Bauer", the show was good but was waiting for more action. The series has good acting but only because of Kiefer. I will keep watching as it has good plot. Hope it gets better with more action and adventure. Would rather see more of "24". Nothing compared to that!!!!!
I think some of the people who keep saying it's far fetched, unrealistic, unbelievable, etc are missing the point. It's about the rare, subtle things that can connect people and as such is not supposed to be the normal, the usual, the everyday. It seems to be more about those once in a millennia occurrences and how randomness is not so random when it comes to the connectivity of the universe. It then tries to use the mathematical beauty of the world to communicate it using various fascinating concepts like phi(the golden ratio), fibonacci, etc. I can't wait to see where they go with this!
i loved this show! escapism was achieved! I was a big fan of Heroes and very upset when it was cancelled so had big hopes for this show that was promoted as being by the same folks. i missed the first few minutes so didn't see how the cell phone bit started but I enjoyed that story line too - suspension of disbelief and all - it worked for me, but didn't hit me the way the main story line did... (my comment was too long so this is the edited version)
i enjoyed it - as far as fantasy fiction goes i would have enjoyed reading this as a book/short story as well! And I just hope the writers can do it again for the rest of the series. I think they set the bar high and hopefully will be able to get back up there week after week.
Just saw it on DVR. I'm more intrigued with the numbers - and I don't do numbers, but as a concept of all of us, not just sunflowers, somehow making one enormous Fibonacci number is something I could fall in love with for a while.
As someone who has always been fascinated and somewhat connected with the wonders of Autism, and as someone who is intrigued and somewhat buys into such notions as 6 degrees of separation and the Butterfly Effect I was dying to watch this. In a time where we sometimes seem so divided and distant from one another it was great to have something shown emphasizing just how connected we all are. There were a great deal of things that were farfetched, they possibly overdid it with the numbers as the audience is smart enough to pick them out on their own,and of course God help the purpose who doesn't have their eyeballs glued to the tv screen from beginning to end as they may not be able to follow it all if distracted by something else...but outside of that. The premise is great, the emotional ride it takes the viewer on is fantastic. The acting is great.It's enough to keep me coming back for more.
For me, Touch did not live up to the hype. The character development and dialogue were missing something. I think Tim Kring needs to slow down or simplify the plotlines and focus a little more on details which allow viewers to make a connection with the characters. Hopefully he won't make the same mistakes as he did in Heroes season 2.
Am all the way in Ghana (West Africa) and I've already been touched by this Episode...Am going to re-watch to see if I missed a detail.
After which you were glued to the screen.
