Storyline

Widower Martin Bohm's wife, Sarah Bohm, died in the twin towers on September 11, 2001. Previously a newspaper journalist, Martin since has worked a series of odd jobs in trying to make sense of his life, which includes caring for his son Jake, who was born on October 26, 2000. Jake was diagnosed as autistic, primarily because he has never uttered a word, and has an aversion to being touched. But Martin begins to believe that there is more to Jake's life than meets the eye. Jake, using a series of numbers, leads Martin to discoveries about a certain equilibrium to the world. Martin may ultimately find out what Jake's grand purpose is, and why Jake was placed on the face of the Earth. Written by Huggo

Why a Bad Review
20 February 2012 | by gibby-is-meSee all my reviews

Touch was NOT! a disappointment, in fact it shows that there are real ideas that can blend reality and fantasy. In the days of reality TV that we are all forced to watch, this was a breath of fresh air. Secondly, the subplots are essential in helping the story to blossom. Without it there would be a break in the flow, and we would be lost. It ties itself together well. Unfortunately there are some people who couldn't understand what the writers are trying to accomplish. Understanding the cell tower idea was not complex. This apex of our technology only seems right to have his son "receive" the information through. Or from another perspective, the only place that he can concentrate with all of the world trying to say that he is handicapped instead of understanding him. There is no reason to review this show poorly. It was a cinematic masterpiece. It took elements from real life and fantasy and made a story line that is amazing and promotes acceptance of people who are different from what we see in every day life. Who wouldn't want to have discovered something so amazing inside a child who seemed "hopeless". If you didn't really enjoy this show than you have lost your sense of mystery. It shows that you would rather open a puzzle box with the puzzle already finished than to discover the picture underneath.
