A little boy made his job to see these patterns and ratios that somehow are connected to us, people, numbers that tell us a story of each one of us, equations that need to be solved and only he can do that. He's been alive for 11 years, 4 months, 25 days and thirteen hours and in all that time he never said a word but luckily he now has someone who hears him. His father, Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland) tries to protect him but there are so many things standing in his way, and boy's condition doesn't make it easier.
Update: Ratings added.
Touch is a news series from FOX telling a story about a boy with special needs, Jake Bohm who haven't said a word in his entire life but who believes that numbers are the real words for him, numbers that predicts the future or simply state that our lives have been already written and we have the chance to change the final draft through his amazing abilities.
The second episode comes to tell us that nothing is coincidental (although this is something I refuse to believe in), people we meet everyday are somehow connected to us, having them enter our lives happens to be for a reason, despite the fact that sometimes (well, most of the time) we don't know which one is.
The characters from this episode are a stewardess that happens to know Martin (who works at the airport), a guy from Indian descent who came in the United States to spread his father's ashes on New York Stadium, in whom the aforementioned stewardess accidentally bumped into, a guy who robbed an antique store owner, who owes cash a Russian mob and as the episode progresses we meet a Russian boy who is trying to be a magician but fails as the audience doesn't clap to boy's number of magic due to fearing his father, the Russian mob. You may begin to wonder how are these characters all connected ?
So far, Martin still cannot figure out what the numbers that Jake gave him mean ?
To find out what those numbers mean watch Touch, an amazing series with so much meaning and new to tell us.
Nothing is coincidental.
Everything happens for a reason.
