Watch Touch (2012) Online - Full Episodes
Attempting to connect the invisible dots between individuals, Touch is part science, part spirituality, and part psychology. As we watch ordinary, seemingly unrelated people all over the world immersed in daily routines , we begin to contemplate the ways that we all interconnect thanks to the vision of creator and writer Tim Kring ("Heroes" and "Crossing Jordan") and executive producers Peter Chermin and Katherine Pope (both of "New Girl" and "Terra Nova" fame).
The audience follows the personal journey of Martin Bohm (played by Kiefer Sutherland), a 9-11 widower and single father, as he attempts to care for and connect with his emotionally-challenged 11-year-old son, Jake (played by David Mazouz). When the audience first meets Bohm, it is clear that he has done everything including continuously changing jobs and rearranging every of aspect of his life?to devote time and energy to an apparently autistic Jake. We immediately feel sympathetic to Bohm's plight as he struggles to reach Jake who never speaks nor rarely makes eye contact, shows little emotion, and never allows anyone to touch him, including his father.
Jake is obsessed with numbers and cell phones, but, as Touch's audience soon recognizes, nothing is as simple as it first seems. These obsessions hold the key to unfathomable universal patterns that only Jake can decipher. Just as Bohm's ability to care for Jake is officially questioned by authorities, specifically a well-intentioned social worker, Clea Hopkins (played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw), Bohm meets Arthur Teller (played by Danny Glover), a professor and expert on gifted children who is hiding from his own haunted past. Teller proposes that Jake's disability is actually a great gift.
Although Martin Bohm wants nothing more than to communicate directly with his son, he is confronted with the only interaction Jake has to offer. Under the direction of Teller, and in defiance of social workers and the foster care system, Bohm spends his time and energy blindly following numerical quests and slowly unraveling the hidden design of humanity's interconnectivity that only Jake can see. As each episode progresses, we see the dots connect?the unlikely interactions between strangers and the impossible scenarios blossom into promise?as Martin and Jake Bohm follow the patterns.
In the end the audience is awed by the invisible ties that bind us all as humans.

The "American Idol" upswing hasn't started yet, but "Touch" carries some momentum into its eventual premiere. Both shows' strong ratings carried FOX to an easy win, with CBS coming in a close second and two NBC sitcoms continuing to struggle.
