The second season of the long-awaited show Touch is being delayed by three months.
Until later this month it seemed that Fox was really enthusiast about the beginning of the second season of Touch, until the news came that the show was delayed by three months.
Rumors give opinion that the reason it was delayed it could be because FOX wasn’t satisfied with Touch first season or with Touch Second Season episodes or just because they’d like to give Kiefer Sutherland some time to make 24 Movie.
John Boyd and Dileep Rao joins Touch TV Show second season premiere. Kiefer Sutherland old friend from the famous show ’24′, John Boyd comes for the second season of FOX’s drama ‘Touch’ and another friend from the movie ‘Inception’, Dileep Rao.
Boyd will recur as Kase, a brilliant math and algorithm researcher who is Calvin’s (Lukas Haas) college friend and close confidant. Rao, whose credits also include Avatar, will be a recurring guest star and play Vikash Nayar, a wealthy and influential shareholder at Aster Corp.
FOX has announced the date for the show’s return this fall.
Season Two of Touch will bow on Friday, October 26 at 8 p.m. (7 Central) in the United States.
It’s not yet clear how many episodes of Touch the network has commissioned thus far. Another shortened season would allow the network to air the series through January and then bring in a mid-season replacement, or extend the series order with enough episodes to keep Touch on through the spring.
Touch TV Show first season was a partially success so after completing a set of 13 episodes, it has been arrived the time to decide when the DVD of the complete episodes of the first season.
The date of the first season DVD release is October 16th for $52 United States Dollars.
The package art is not yet available, but it will soon be and when it does, you will be notified here.
Kiefer Sutherland’s Touch gained 12 million views in the first two episodes, but then the numbers drained. But that didn’t kept the producors from doing a great job. After a number of fail episodes, Touch TV Show actually gained a lot of popularity due the weeks and definitely earned a second season, a second chance for the producors to do a better work after their 2 hour season finale episode which was a blast!
More renewals and pickups are expected in coming days as the network prepares to make its presentation to advertisers next week.
For now that’s all. We will keep you in touch for next days if any new information about the situtation of the cast and producers of Touch TV Show comes up.
You got the Touch! The first season of Touch draws to a close with two-part finale ‘Gyre’ – but will Kiefer Sutherland’s TV comeback wrap up with a bang or a whimper? The first instalment explores both the aftermath of the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami and Martin’s covert investigation into the Amelia mystery…
For once, not being forced to run around after his son, Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) gets a chance to use his journalistic skills and discovers the truth – Amelia is actually alive, with a sinister cover-up falsifying documents, autopsy reports and the like.
After being jumped by a goon and undergoing a near-death experience, Martin is more determined than ever to rescue his son from the sinister clutches of all-purpose evil organisation Aster Corps, but he’s betrayed by a conflicted Clea (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and Jake (David Mazouz) is taken away…
Elsewhere, Ian Gomez off of Cougar Town is a weird beach hoarder who collects debris from the tsunami and appears to be selling it online, though there’s a twist. Gomez’s Wade first clashes then bonds with Lucy (Maria Bello), who’s taken it upon herself to become involved with his life. It’s almost like an abridged romantic comedy.
This sub-plot isn’t quite as strong as the central Martin arc, but it was a smart move to hire strong, recognisable actors to play Wade and Lucy – Bello and Gomez are both excellent, impressing even when the writing doesn’t.
Wade’s hoarding ultimately helps resolve a far-away family crisis, returning a samurai sword to a troubled family. We just wish the family’s mother hadn’t turned out to be the same woman that Wade had lost in the tsunami – it’s an implausible step too far that undermines the drama.
But overall, ‘Gyre (Part 1)’ is a pretty strong episode of Touch; there’s intrigue, action and it’s all rounded off with a decent twist, as Bello’s Lucy is revealed to be the mother of Martin’s quarry Amelia. She’s basically a female version of Martin, following the numbers in the hope of reaching out to her daughter.
Part two picks up with Maria still hunting for the apparently dead Amelia, while scheming government types plot to transfer Jake to a long-term care facility – shades of Amelia’s own disappearance.
In a neat move, this season ender brings back many of the disparate characters that we’ve encountered throughout the first season of Touch. Determined to channel a little Jack Bauer to get Jake back, Martin purchases a gun from Arnie (Jude Ciccolella) – last glimpsed in episode two ’1+1 = 3′, while Jake also runs into the ‘Invisible Prince’ from ‘Safety in Numbers’ who helps him on his way…
The biggest returning guest star is Titus Welliver, reprising his role as Randall. The unwilling lottery winner has completed his work on that church and has built up a relationship with single mother Gwen and her son Colin. But before he can settle down, Randall must help out Martin one last time…
Martin is on the run with Jake – after Clea helped them escape the care facility – and the pair run straight into Randall, leading to an emotional reunion that’s well played by Welliver and Sutherland.
Taking Randall’s car (with his blessing), Martin and Jake escape to Santa Monica and run smack into Lucy – the finale’s final scene provides an intriguing set-up for season two. With Prime Suspect axed, we’re hoping Maria Bello might stick around full-time next year.
So what are our thoughts on season one of Touch overall? It’s certainly been an uneven run of episodes, but one that definitely improved as it went along. The show has been held together by an unflinchingly solid central performance from Kiefer Sutherland and there have been a few really strong moments.
But there have also been some seriously bad decisions on the writing front – we’re still not sure how wise a decision it was to kill off Arthur Teller, for example. Showrunner Tim Kring claimed that Danny Glover’s character had “run its course” but he was essentially replaced as the show’s resident Yoda by Abraham (Bodhi Elfman) anyway – a substantially less interesting character.
Touch has plenty going for it, but right now it’s just a jumble of disparate ideas – there’s potential here, but season two badly needs a stronger guiding hand to help the show become more consistent.

We have just released a full recap about Touch TV Show ”Tessellations” and now we are releasing behind the scenes photos about the same episode.
As stated on the Touch TV Show Facebook Fan Page, the photos have the same description:
Behind the Scenes of the “Tessellations” episode of Touch TV Show .
Well, sorry for the long post, here are the album of the photos:
Following Jake’s numbers, Martin is unwittingly caught up in a heist, while Clea delves deeper into Teller’s research and learns a shocking secret…
You got the Touch TV Show! Talking about geometric shapes in his traditional opening spiel, Jake (David Mazouz) notes how they’re “rotated and reflected, infinitely repeated”. Sure, he’s talking geometric shapes, but he could be referring to the plot-lines in Touch TV Show - the show’s sense of repetition is one of the things preventing it from becoming great television.
We kick off this week with Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) reaching out to his late wife’s sister Abigail (Catherine Dent), who’s decidedly less one-dimensional and evil this week, acting more like a human being for a change. She and Martin decide to team up to prevent the state from taking custody of Jake…
Martin’s also busy with the latest number – 2545 – and now that he and Clea have a quest, following Teller’s research, Touch TV Show has more of a sense of direction. Our interest was piqued as Martin began conducting an investigation at a local harbour, but we were disappointed to see events quickly spiral into ludicrousness…
You see, poor Martin unwittingly becomes caught up in a crime at the docks. We could forgive this kind of thing happening to 24′s Jack Bauer but when it happens to ‘regular joe’ Martin, it seems just that little bit more ridiculous.
Rather bizarrely, Martin plays along rather than escaping from these dangerous thieves at the first opportunity – we know he’s keen to follow Jake’s numbers, but *really*?
“You had a chance, why didn’t you run?” asks one of the crooks. It’s because in Touch TV Show , it turns out pretty much everyone is good deep down – thief Joey is pulling the heist for his dead wife. In fact, all three of the crooks are decent folk, really.
Exposed, Martin has to convince the thieves to let him help with their heist, and when he’s backed into a corner, the character has a worrying tendency to start spouting inspirational nonsense – “Sometimes in life, you’re just supposed to take a leap of faith and hope you land on your feet!”
Eventually, the thieves are hailed as heroes when they unwittingly open a special canister and uncover a human trafficking ring. Despite the flaws in the plot, Martin’s story – convoluted as it might be – is the most interesting and compelling part of the episode. Sutherland’s performance is as strong as ever and the guest actors playing the crooks do a good job too. The reference back to Martin’s journalist past and the improbably-named Rush Middleton is a nice touch too.
The docks storyline certainly holds together better than the episode’s secondary plot – another tiresome troubled romance-of-the-week, which this time involves a Palestinian girl and her Jewish boyfriend – definitely not an ill-advised storyline at all….
Soon enough, their political differences and the Israel/Palestine conflict put a strain on their relationship. How many more times is Touch going to feed up the same story of a romance suffering a crisis but coming good in the end? Branch out, try new things!
The third major thread of ‘Tessellations‘ has Clea (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) fulfilling her new regular role of looking into Teller’s research. Sneaky care worker Sheri (Roxana Brusso) appears to be testing Jake’s abilities – does she know more about the ’36 Righteous Ones’ than she’s letting on?
Clea’s investigations eventually uncover the truth – Jake’s aunt Abigail isn’t nice after all, she’s precisely as one-dimensional and villainous as she first appeared and her company AsterCorp is after Jake!
Like Sutherland, Mbatha-Raw continues to deliver the goods and it’s great that Clea has been given more to do, but the writer who came up with this exchange – “Can I get you anything? Water? Coffee?” “Answers!” – deserves a stern reprimand.
Touch TV Show still has its flaws – constant repetition, ludicrous twists – but the show did effectively counter some of its early weaknesses – too many extraneous storylines, lack of a solid story arc – so hopefully with time the show will continue to improve. With a second season on the way, it certainly has the opportunity to grow and develop – let’s hope Tim Kring and his writers don’t squander it.
