So, here we go with another bright, shiny object: the new FOX drama Touch. The premise intrigues me and yes, it's Kiefer Sutherland -- how could I not give this one a shot?
I first saw the premiere preview for Touch last fall, and I actually really liked it. Yes, it's a bit confusing -- but that's the whole point, or at least one of them. Here's the gist of Touch: 11-year-old Jake finds number patterns that somehow link up people all over the world. This kid has a unique gift: He can see how each person's life is touched by another, and another, and so on. His father, Martin, is trying desperately to connect with Jake -- who doesn't talk. Eventually, Martin realizes that his son is on to something, though he's not sure how or why Jake is able to do what he's doing.
