Touch > Touch Review: Who Hears You? > Comments Page 2
Not sure about this show ... love the concept but many, many people in the world are not ready to put out that much energy to keep up with the jumps and how they all fit together. Plus, Kiefer ... well, he is the guy from 24 who is all action and tough guy ... people will see him that wauy for a long time ... this show needs to up it's anti to get people involved and do something with the social worker ... blah person that she is.
One more scene with this deadpan kid just staring while writing numbers with dad yelling "What do you want me to do" and I am done with this. Far to little action.
Very strange show. Not sure yet if I like it or not.
I believe this episode felt a little more "contrived", or at least predictable, because we already knew the premise going in from the pilot. I wouldn't say that makes it a lesser episode. I disagree with the reviewer that "Trying to follow all of the jumps can take Touch from entertaining, to almost daunting to keep up with." I am so glad there is finally an intelligent show that demands the audience's full attention. It is amazing to me just how fast that hour ticks by when watching this show, and that tells me that I am very caught up in the story line.
As with the pilot, it was the last 5 minutes of this episode that got to me and put a lump in my throat. Well done, and can't wait for next week's episode.
I like the concept, but watching this after the pilot has left me concerned. A show like this is not fast enough to keep us enthralled without a significant larger story arch. It needs to show the audience that they are reaching to some conclusion. Hope that the writers have something in their minds.
The show isn't bad, but it's not really good either. It provides us with a lot of coincidences, plot holes, unanswered questions and clichés and then looks at us straight in the face and says "That's the point!"
Yeah, I get it. Everything is connected. So every week we will see 4 or 5 random stories and then see them all intwine by phone calls. Again, it's not a BAD show, but how long can you drag this premise out without it becoming tiresome?
I really liked the pilot. I liked this episode a little less and feel that I will get more bored with the premise with each one that passes by.
Good episode, not as great as the pilot but a solid 2nd episode. I didn't find any of the situations a stretch. Pavels dad was in America and he wanted to send his kid a present. Ball players have had run-ins with fans before over milestone achievements, i can't think of any lawsuits but gifts have been exchanged for the item wanted.
Life is fate's plan being unfolded and a lot of things that appear coincidental or downright unlikely can in fact be that plan. I didn't have a problem at all with the way Arnie and Becca met. I found their story quite moving with a satisfying ending. Next week looks like they might start doing a season-wide mystery at least that's the hints I was gathering from the teaser. Definitely going to keep watching.
Loved the pilot but this episode seemed hokey to me. Very disappointed as I was really looking forward to the premier after watching the pilot. I will give it another chance though.
