Returning from a year-long psychological leave of absence after surviving a gunshot wound to the head, a detective is assigned to the F.B.I.'s new Organized and Serial Crime Unit (O.S.C.U.), a rapid-response, elite crime investigation squad, where he and his new O.S.C.U. partner find themselves committed to saving lives and solving cases. In spite of his inability to abide by common sense, and the laws he's sworn to uphold, he, with the help of his partner, work together to hunt down the most wicked and vicious criminals on the streets.

Creegan: [after being told it was the right thing to send away his wife and daughters] People... and Rivers. I have an announcement to make! I'm fine. I shot the pool, but I'm fine. Tell them... Tell them.
Susan Branca: [slightly hesitating] He's fine.
Creegan: You see, he's fine. I'm more then fine, I've never been better. I wanted boys anyway.

User Reviews

One of the best/my favorite shows on TV in 2004!
8 June 2004 | by texasorbySee all my reviews

There is so much about TOUCHING EVIL that keeps me coming back for more. >From the moment the series intro each week begins, I'm hooked like a fish that just swallowed his bait! Suddenly I realize that I'm listening to NINE INCH NAILS! (I've been a big fan forever of NIN for a long time!!!) There's something hypnotic about the intro though that seems oddly familiar.

It's like watching the SIX FEET UNDER beginning. Both are beautifully executed and stunning to watch, week after week. Neither seems to get old!

The cast in the series appears to work well with one another, too! Always a feeling of more than meets the eye, you're left wondering when their story will be told. Of course this is the first (of hopefully many) season so too early to say! Let's hope we get more seasons to flesh out each of the characters!

The high speed filming process used in scene transitions really is quite beautiful! San Francisco never looked so good! Sometimes I wonder if I'm at an art exhibit, mesmerized by the imagery shown!
