Now Available on DVD -- Touch, Season 1 (Review)

Touch: The Complete First Season 


"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." 


My Thoughts:

Are you a fan of Keifer Sutherland?  I have been a fan of his since seeing him in Stand by Me and The Lost Boys in the 80's, and was addicted to his hit television series, 24.  But, when 24 wrapped up, I was having Kiefer Sutherland withdrawals and couldn't wait to see what he would do next.  Then, I began hearing buzz about a new television series called Touch, in which he would star as a father to a emotionally challenged son who could predict the future, I couldn't wait for the season to begin.

Did you catch Touch when it aired on Fox?  If not, you missed out on a great show.  Season 2 will not begin until January 2013, so this will give you time to catch up with missed episodes.  Even though I watched every episode, I enjoyed watching the first season over again recently.  And, now that I hear Lucas Haas, another actor from the 80's I used to watch, season 2 is looking to be even better than the first.

Sutherland's son Jake is mute, and good with numbers.  As the series unfolds, we learn that Jake is using the numbers he is scribbling down to talk with his dad.  Each episode deals with this follow the number feel, which pulls you in and keeps you engaged and on the edge of your seat during the entire episode.  I am not going to spoil the season finale, but will say it was the best episode so far.  And, when you are done watching it, you will be excited like me and so many other Touch fans, for season 2 to begin. 

So, if you are looking for a new television series to watch, why not give Touch a chance, by picking up season 1 now available on DVD, and then tuning in to Fox in January, when season 2 begins.

Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this DVD from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
