Hey guys, just wondering what some thought about the opening show Touch, with Keifer Sutherlin. I was kind of intrigued with the premise, the cast and the potential storylines that will come out of this. What a fascinating angle, a boy who is somewhat autistic is considered to be an evolution amongst humans that serve as a transmitter of information, and is beyond the limitations of talking, seeing the world in patterns and numbers, and in this instance, peering into the future and providing a warning for an upcoming catastrophe. It reminded me of Minority Report in a sense.

I dug it and think it may be a successful show. Man I gotta admit,(SPOILER ALERT) when the guys family pictures played on the big screens, I got a little misty eyed, but a good story involving human passion can hit me like that I suppose.

For those who don't have a TV, you can watch it streaming here: www.watchseries-online.eu... and I use the Putlocker option.

Peace,
spec

I liked the pilot. Nothing amazing, but certainly better than most of the stuff coming out these days. Will have to wait and see if its a good series or a just well done pilot. Sucks the next episode isn't until 3/19 though.

March? I did not know, oh well. I wonder how many 24 fans will be able to see Keith beyond "Jack Bauer?" I wasn't a fan of that show, but I know it was popular.
I like the synchronicity angle of Touch too, and yea it's not a must see kind of show I reckon, but it is somewhat fresh in it's approach.

Thanks for the reply,
spec

The show could be good. I will definitely watch the next few episodes and see where they are going with this...

In the first episode it's all about 3/18. Do you think the next air date is a coincidence, lol?

Coincidence? No way man it's synchronicity yo!

Now let's see if anything major happens in the real world on the 18th, and we can have another Simpsonesque subliminal forewarning about a significant date. I hope not....

I rather thought it was a great show and far from just so-so. I even got chills at the message that was on his machine at the end of the pilot. Makes me think twice about certain people that cross my path and the choices I make regarding the person and the real reason it was meant for me to cross their path. I will be watching on 3/19 and any future episodes.

lol

My brother showed me the trailer earlier (doesn't start in the UK yet) and when he yelled at his kid on the transmitter, I immediately did my best Jack Bauer "put your hands where I can see them!!" impersonation.

Looks good though, this and Game Of Thrones in April will make my year.

It wasn't bad, but just like that show with Lost's Benjamin Linus...it's too cerebral for the market at large, so it will likely die.

Sometimes, the public surprises me (like Lost), but flukes are flukes.

If I recall correctly - seeing it awhile back - - - they intentionally avoid the word Autistic.

If I recall correctly - they kind of skirt around it - - and say or suggest he had a traumatic experience.

My grandson liked it (he's 18). But when I told him about the Autistic connection - - he was clueless.

Are you talking about a show with Micheal Emerson playing Ben Linus again or just another show starring Micheal Emerson?

What show was it.

OT: I have Touch on sky anytime so I will give it a watch over the weekend maybe.
I only ever watched season 1 of 24 (Awesome by the way) so I can get past Jack Bauer.

Yea, maybe I should not use that label, I just thought the symptoms(?) were there, no eye contact, rocking back and forth, unable to communicate and prone to abrupt outbursts. I guess Aspergers Syndrome is similar too, but in this show, they are kind of presenting it as a new thing?
It looks like these people with the affliction will be getting together at some point maybe.

More like they are trying to cover-up/avoid what they're really presenting.

What's interesting about children of the Autism Spectrum - - - if you put them in a play place with other kids - - they find each other. They KNOW.

You may be right Gazrok, but it does have a nice drama intensity to it also, so it may catch on. I think the intro is one of the best I've seen for a show, and the writing seems good. I just wonder if the plot will stay the same, intertwining stories that come together and clues to uncover for Jack B...I mean Keiffer

I wonder if/when the boy will ever speak, since he is doing the narrations? I am digging the show, but yea I wonder if it will peter out too.

Interesting, I have never noticed that. A bit digressive, but I did a thread on Autism and the IPad that some may find interesting. You can see the relief and joy in the kid's expressions, as if finally, they can communicate.
And the parents are relieved and inspired as well.

I've read about that.

My grandson is borderline on the Autism Spectrum. I've had several parents come up to me at play places/parks and ask me if he has been tested or is he on the Spectrum. They say they can tell because the Kids of the Spectrum always find each other.

It makes me wonder about the issue, as in is it environmental, or at least the rampant progression of it in number of cases, or is it some bizarre way nature has begun assigning traits that serve some purpose here, either now or in the future?

Yes - - is it an evolutionary thing and for what purpose?

Although - - - it may be just because we are more aware of it today.
