    I loved the pilot but all the rest of the episodes are just different versions of the pilot. Also, I can't figure out why the (state?) wants so badly to take a son away from a loving father. There are lots of kids in much worse situations that they could focus their resources on.

    Or....maybe those try to take Jake have more than his welfare in mind?

    I like it and am sticking with it. But it does get annoying with the whole 'what are you trying to tell me' schtick.

    I don't remember how Kiefer makes money. He doesn't have time to work. Maybe it was from his wife's life insurance?

    I think he's a baggage monkey at the airport? But, used to be something more high profile (news?), not sure what, which may account for his nice digs.

    He was some kind of investigative reporter/financial journalist type. There was an episode where one of the characters was a math wiz at a hedge fund, etc. etc. and involved that plot point.

    The wife family was rich as well, correct?

    I just watched the episode from 5/3, scaffolding across the street had a 213 area code instead of 212 but who didn't know the show was filmed in LA and not NYC...:p

    The show is ok. He will always be Jack Bauer to me so it is funny when he makes the phone calls. He acts just like when he used to call CTU and Chloe.

    As per the most recent episode, I think things are settling down. Jake is not so annoying (they still need to stop his running off, nilly willy), and things are coming to a head.

    I really like how they integrate the stories with people from all over the world (and space) with cause and effect. "Touch" is an appropriate title for me.

    I'm waiting for something like:
    "He keeps writing 24... 24... 24. Why, Jake? WHY!?!?! That number means nothing to me!"

    If I can get past the first 20 minutes or so of an episode then it becomes enjoyable. The problem is that I feel like I'm going to fall asleep in those first 20 minutes.

    I'm not sure why this was renewed, but others shows like Awake (which is a better show IMHO and based on reviews on MetaCritic) were canceled. Touch is being moved to Fridays next season, which is where shows go to die, so I don't expect a season 3.

    Just finished watching the final episodes of this season. The 2 parter was really good in that it brought together a lot of the threads that were part of the entire season. He still says Jake a lot but he is figuring things out much easier now. Looking for the connections instead of tripping into them. The big bad is still mysterious but things are moving nicely.

    I like the show - we get to continue our drinking game from '24' counting the number of times Jack growls 'Dammit!' in each hour :)

    I guess it has kept me mildly entertained. It hasn't been at the top of my viewing list. The final few episodes had me more engaged. I actually yelled at the screen when Martin stormed in and was caught by Clea's boss. I wanted him to beat the snot of her.
    I guess my favorite episode was the one where the lesbian couple was trying to conceive. I really liked the misdirection and conclusion of their story.

    The show is not very good yet and it may never be but we have kept a season pass and watched the first 8 episodes.

    The stories are always a number of people are having seemingly unrelated drama and how all of it is related will become clear at the end when the day is saved through some supernatural numerical psychic ability by an annoying child who conveys what needs to be done in some vague manner apparently trying to confuse rather than help. Bigger stories are hinted at but I haven't gotten far enough to really have any good idea what is going on in that regard.

    OK the show is really stupid but it isn't as stupid as Fringe if that is worth anything. My thought is Kiefer is just cashing a big paycheck without devoting a lot of time or effort. The odds are 50/50 that the remaining season 1 episodes on our TiVo will be deleted and the season pass deleted before the second season but the head of the household (female) will make that decision in the coming weeks.

    Why you considered any part of your post as a "spoiler" is beyond me. You might as well have put the whole thing in spoilers. :confused:
