Touch centers on former reporter Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland) and his 11-year-old son, Jake, who has been diagnosed as autistic. Martin's wife died in the World Trade Center during the September 11 attacks, and he has been struggling to raise Jake since then, moving from job to job while tending to Jake's special needs.
Jake has never spoken a word, but is fascinated by numbers and patterns relating to numbers, spending much of his days writing them down in notebooks or his touch-screen tablet and sometimes using objects (for instance popcorn kernels).
You know, if they manage to wrap this up in a decent way, I don't mind just 2 seasons. The show is ok, this season has (a) clear goal(s), prolong the season with 5-6 episodes, wrap it up. But that's doubtful.

A little offtopic, but I'm pretty sure there are some people here who watch Touch only because of Kiefer. :)
NBC has offered Kiefer Sutherland a starring role in the pilot The Black List, a provocative new development that doesn't seem to bode well for the future of Touch on FOX.
From Jon Bokenkamp, The Black List is about how the world's most wanted criminal mysteriously turns himself in and offers to give up everyone he has ever worked with. His only condition is he will only work with a newly minted FBI agent with whom he seemingly has no connection.
Sutherland has been offered the role of the criminal. It's a second position offer, since no decision has been made on the future of the Sutherland starrer Touch. But FOX can't be pleased with how the second year drama is performing on Fridays : last week, the series averaged 2.7 million viewers and a mere .7 rating in A18-49.
FOX is expected to announce the season finale dates for Touch and its other series by tomorrow. Its unlikely Fox will let viewers know about the dramas fate until closer to the New York Upfronts in May.

I'm just uneasy about that man killing the ones with "the knowledge".
I think is too many stories happening at once.
But I like the show, I always what to see what's next.
