Whatever happened to the television series, "Touch," starring Kiefer Sutherland?
Last year, I thought this was one of the better series on television. The writing was superb, the acting terrific, and the fact that one of the lead characters was an autistic boy spoke volumes about how far fictional TV wanted to distance itself from reality shows like the Kardashian family. Anyone have some inside scoop or rational conjecture as to what may have happened?
I haven't had a tv for over six years now, so I'm not going to be much help to you on this one, Joe!
Hi, Bill! A lot of the stuff on television is garbage, but every now and then, a good series comes around that has me dazzled with the talented writing. Touch was my pick last year; Hannibal is my pick this year. Good for you for being TV-less! Aloha
I saw the first season and thought it was solid. That said, I can see why the light, "mild-mannered" approach might've been a turn-off for audiences that are ramped up now with more ambitious or violent shows like Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad, or with people that might've been expecting a 24-like show.
I still haven't gotten around to the second season, but my wife did and liked it more than the first.
There was a second season? I've been waiting for it to come back after the first season. I don't know how I might've missed it. Thanks for your response!
I'm planning on checking it out later. Some of the episodes are free on Hulu.com.
I agree that "touch" was a very superb written show. The cast was very believable, and the story line denoted love and patience, with respect to addressing autism. The problem....not too many viewers are familar with this malady, ergo, the difficulty in identifying with the so called, "sick" character.
The other problem...Kiefer became a victim of the "stereotype" syndrome, regarding a specific, previous role, played by an actor. In this case, the TV series, "24."
The public still sees Kiefer, as that prolific chracter on that show, which by the way, was my favorite of all times. They want him to be the "Hero." Just a thought. Blessings.
I agree with your opinion about Kiefer. (Even though his character in Touch is almost as "superhero" as Jack Bauer.)
You've given this much thought, and I certainly appreciate the wonderful effort. Thank you for pointing out several key points, one of which addressed Kiefer Sutherland being stereotyped as a strong character in a prior series. Aloha!

Whatever happened to Virtual Reality as Entertainment for the future?In the early 1990's it seemed that Virtual Reality would be in every home as a way to escape your regular life. Is the technology an epic failure or is some of it's features alive and well in Xbox Connect and other arcade machines?
