Touch was a good show.

I know I'm being nit-picky but I would merely classify his son as silent and reticent rather than autistic, or maybe mild autism.

If I remember correctly, wasn't autism the actual diagnosis written in to the show? Of course, he had abilities that were not part of autism, but I thought that was Danny Glover's character, where he worked with children with autism, but had his private study to seek out the Chosen Ones?

It's been a while since I've seen it though :)

"Touch" like "Numbers" was quite a writing challenge coming up with story lines. I think touch was a good show, but probably coasted more because of Kiefer Sutherland more than the story line. I remember some pretty neat twists to the stories of both shows. We were sorry to see both go, I had forgotten Touch was cancelled.

I thought season 8 was pretty much a huge let down.

Touch was good, too bad it was cancelled.

But what I'm MOST upset about is the cancellation of Stargate Universe which was a great drama despite being scifi.

Was 24 any good? Every time I tried to watch it, it didn't appeal to me. Touch appealed to me deeply.

You should, now. It was good, and sad, but you at least know now it continues :)

it was great...a lot of twists in the episodes ,always a surprise and the plot thickens ,the things Jack Bauer had to do and the lengths he went to.
It was always talked about when the first season broke in australia ,then the second and so on..
