We took a gamble on a new TV show that ran a couple of days ago - the latest project starring Kiefer Sutherland - “Touch”. I’ll be honest, the description drew me in, involving a boy obsessed with numbers. As we apparently are (still surrounded by 11’s).

Well, snap my peas and call me Shirley - what a show! Compelling, dramatic, can’t-even-breath-during-some-scenes...probably the best new show we’ve seen. 

I know, I know - it’s not “The Bachelor”, or “Who’s Gonna Marry Chester For A Month”, or “12 Bimbos In Heat” (whatever these painful but popular “reality” shows are called), but we tend to lean towards programs that have real writers, real actors, and aim for viewers with IQ’s over 4. I’m going to leave it at that - to each their own, something for everybody, whatever floats your boat. But really...

So, this was just a teaser episode, but it sure served its purpose. We can’t wait for the debut, and will follow as long as they maintain that initial level of excellence. 

Hey, did you know that “reality” programs have writers, producers and directors? And that not everything you see is real nor even remotely close to spontaneous?

Sorry, I promised to leave it alone...  

Anyway - “Touch” - two opposable thumbs up, which might be what separates us from reality TV fans...


Chow for now!!

This show was unbelievable! A master of surprises and amazement, so well done! I cant wait until the series begins, I was so disappointed this one we saw was only a teaser!
I'll snap your peas Shirley! Can't wait for this show. I sure hope it adds insight into our mystical 11 which continues to be stronger than ever.
