    "Touch", starring Kiefer Sutherland, premieres March 19, and I thought it'd be interesting to see what you all think based on show descriptions --

    tvbythenumbers has some info on it, and, from the premise, it looks interesting. With Sutherland in it, I'm watching.

    There's an hour-long preview on Fox this Wednesday (9-10:07 EST).

    I'm very much looking forward to this show and have been waiting impatiently to set up a season pass for it. (Just did that a moment ago, finally close enough to air date and remembering to do it!)

    I'm guessing the first season will be terrific until the finale, and then all subsequent seasons will be varying degrees of crap due to the fear of taking risks.

    It's not really so much a guess as much as an estimation based on historical evidence.

    Considering FOX's involvement, you may be right.

    Assuming they don't bring in a cougar and/or Elisha Cuthbert we should be ok for a while :p

    From what I've seen, it reminds me of 'Knowing.'

    The question is "What do you think?".

    Honestly, it doesn't look interesting to me. Maybe they'll make it look better to me.

    I'm into it so far, but new TV has been so disappointing the last couple of years that it's almost impossible for me to get crazy psyched for a show. Keifer's involvement is definitely keeping me interested, where as Tim Kring's involvement is making me want to run for my life... Hopefully he learned some valuable lessons after the Heroes debacle.

    The preview I saw from the gold-star ad on TiVo looked interesting enough that I had it create a season pass.

    This one looks like a pass.

    These overly cryptic type shows that force you to watch from episode one to make any sense of things rarely work and I'm not sure I'm willing to invest any time in yet another try by one of the main networks..who's track records usually suck.

    The review on Futon Critic gives some ups and downs. A couple of things that have me doubting the longevity of this show, having to accept characters doing stupid things and having to accept that things just so happen to work out exactly as needed for the end result to take place. Oh, and Tim Kring.

    I'm going to give it a shot though. I read we'll be getting at least one more Jack Bauer style "Damnit!"

    It looks interesting, well at least worth a look. Not sure about the long term viability. It could get boring after awhile.

    I thought that Keifer bowed out of another season of 24 because he wanted to get out of the grind of weekly TV...

    Season pass is set. I really hope the show is good with a well thought out story arc. I and the wife have not picked up many shows this year and are hoping this can join once apon a time as a keeper.

    Thought about it with Keifer but I'm so done with this type of show.

    Pass, and I don't mean season.

    Maybe he realized his movie career is a dead end, and there's money in TV :)

    I think it's too soon for a Jerry Sandusky biopic.

    Q: What do you think?

    A: I think this business of airing a single 'preview' episode more than a month before starting the normal series schedule provides an excellent excuse to stockpile all of the first season episodes for watching later.

    Later, as in after reading the general consensus of those who are more willing to invest their time watching, and especially after discovering if Fox (is the BIH still implied?) will actually air the entire season.
