I'll warn you that if you were a fan of last season, chances are you won't be of this season. It's a very different animal. FOX made them change the format of the show. It became a cheap looking rip off of ABC's 'Missing', with a rip-off of 'Heroes' character 'Sylar' thrown in just for fun. Plus, they stopped bringing in the really good and imaginative directors from the first season. No more Greg Beeman, Stephen Williams, or Jeannot Szwarc. FOX wanted guys whose priority was shooting fast and dirty and cheap.
People looking for a 24 fix liked the change. But the fact that the ratings dropped like a rock this season demonstrated that 'Touch''s core audience hated the change. It lost the magic and the family friendly vibe of the first season. It became an action/thriller without the action or thrills of much better shows like Burn Notice, Arrow, and and even female-centric Covert Affairs.
