Synosis: Touch is a preternatural drama in which science and spirituality intersect with the hopeful premise that we are all interconnected, tied in invisible ways to those whose lives we are destined to alter and impact. Through masterful storytelling, the series follows a group of seemingly unrelated characters who affect each other in ways seen and unseen. At the centre is Martin Bohm, a widower and single father, haunted by an inability to connect to his mute, severely autistic 10-year-old son, Jake. Caring, intelligent and thoughtful, Martin has tried everything to reach his son who shows little emotion and never allows himself to be touched by anyone, including Martin. Jake busies himself with cast-off cell phones, disassembling them and manipulating the parts, allowing him to see the world in his own special way. After multiple failed attempts at keeping Jake in school, Martin is visited by social worker Clea Hopkins, who insists on doing an evaluation of the Bohms’ living situation. She believes his attempts to communicate with Jake are just wish fulfilment, and determines that it’s time for the state to intervene. But everything changes when Martin discovers that Jake possesses a gift of staggering genius – the ability to see things that no one else can, the patterns that connect everything. Jake is indeed communicating after all. But it’s not with words, it’s with numbers. And now he needs Martin to decipher their meaning and connect these numbers to the cast of seemingly unrelated characters whose lives they affect. Along the way, Martin will be guided by Boris Podolsky, a discredited aging professor who offers Martin a compelling but unorthodox theory about Jake and his rare ability. Whether it be chance, coincidence, timing, synergy or fate, there are events that touch us all, as part of an interconnected, dazzlingly precise universe.
Personal Review: Touch is the coolest TV show I have ever seen in my life. It shows how a father could love his son so dearly that he follows whatever Jake tells him to even though it could be risky. Touch has many episodes which are better one after the other with new adventures and new places to be. Jake is like no other boy, he can save people just by numbers which I find pretty awesome. It is like the hunger games but in really cool episodes like last week’s episode. This TV show displays the love between a father and a son and how extremes a father can take for his son is truly remarkable. This is the best TV show ever and I would recommend it to everyone to watch it. I love this show and I bet you will too.
