After last week's disaster, Touch really had nowhere to go but up. And yesterday's episode was a definite improvement, reining in the hokey coincidences and hinting at a way to turn its themes of interconnectivity into a mildly interesting show.
I'm not here to bury Touch, but I'm not exactly here to praise it either. "Safety in Numbers" is a much, much better hour of television than last week's "1+1=3", but it's much in the same way that a C+ is a much, much better grade than a D-. I'm still far from convinced there's a good ongoing show to be salvaged from all this, but on its own terms, this was probably the clearest, most entertaining attempt yet to articulate just what the hell creator Tim Kring is going on about.
