Touch is a very unique show. Unique in its storytelling and especially in its overall positive outlook, something made even more apparent when in contrast with the current TV climate of darkness and cynicism. Yes, its theme of interconnectivity (lifted straight from Tim Kring’s previous project, Heroes) is mushy and fluffy, but it really is a welcome change. In its uneven first season, this put many people off but attracted a dedicated few who sang the shows praises.

Whilst I am one of those fans, even I have to admit that come the seasons end, Touch’s tireless dedication to a formula started to verge on ‘wearing thin’. Luckily, as that season was ending, Touch increasinlgy brought an interesting and compelling mythological arc for the forefront, one that it could run with going into its 2nd season.

And run with it it does. »
