    What is FOX thinking? I was looking forward to this show, setup a SL for it, and enjoyed the pilot eppy (although my local Fox station cutoff the last few minutes of it).
    Now I find out that Touch won't start airing until March. What is the point of airing one episode when the series doesn't start for two months? Doesn't make sense to me.

    Yeah, it was a preview "event". They started their news at 10 and didn't wait for The Touch to finish at 10:07?

    I believe it is available on Fox's website if you want to see the ending.

    Thanks, I'll check out the website.
    Yep, the local station didn't wait for the final seven minutes.

    show has a lot of potential. Really enjoyed it, hoping fox can air it reguarly so they don't kill it. Had trouble seeing "Jack bower" take a punch to the stomach and not beat the crap out of the other guy though :)

    I loved it too and can't wait until March for the new episodes.

    And to be fair to Jack Bauer...that wasn't just any man who slugged him the gut. Jack took one square from Smokey (The Man in Black) himself. :D

    I thought the show was decent. We'll have to see where it goes. I'll tune in in March.

    I heard/read/saw somewhere that this show has a lot of "24" production people working in it. Hope it's true ... they seem to know their stuff.

    What was the connection between the telephone operator and the kid getting the oven?

    We loved it also. Hopefully since it actually starts in March Fox might give us five or six episodes in consecutive weeks.

    My wife and I liked the show but, agree more then a 2 week wait for regular run is insane.Thank goodness I set it as series link .To answer the connection mentioned about phone operator and the kid needing the oven.It happen by the phones original owner was a food equipment salesman and told the operator he needed this phone back and would do anything. Which she remembered while talking to the boy with the phone and talking him down from letting the bomb attached to it detonate.

    She called the phone he was using as a timer for the bomb.

    I might be wrong here, but in addition to the connection spaul explains, I think she was the girl singing near the opening of the pilot and for whom the two Japanese girls created the fan club.

    The number of coincidental connections is staggering. Maybe too many to be at all believable. Still, we enjoyed the show. It did have a 24 flavor to it.

    Not according to the theory of "6 degrees of separation". There is also "Memes", along with the many speculations on how ancient cultures that are separated by thousands of miles developed along similar lines (belief in gods, building of pyramids, etc).

    I think the point is that the connections are not "coincidental".

    Or things in James Burke's Connections series, tonic water leading to the discovery of the size of the universe and such. Though some of his connections seemed a bit tenuous.
