Touch (2012 -2013) 1x01 Review

Pilot

At first this seems to be ‘Six Degrees’ redux. Martin Bohm deals with his mute autistic son Jake who sees patterns in numbers and how they connect people. Danny Glover does a one scene cameo as the exposition guy, Martin faces down a vile child snatching social worker and random people stumble across an iphone.

Martin angsts, Jake is creepy, the iphone’s battery NEVER runs out, a guest stars communicates via monosyllabic grunting. There are also hookers and mutterings about quantum entanglement and how things work. This was okay but contrived. It’s not event TV. I hope this doesn’t turn out to be another ‘The Event’ or ‘Flashforward’.
