Touch: The Complete First Season Is Coming To DVD On October 16
When Season 2 of Touch was pushed back to a midseason premiere, I thought for certain the Season 1 DVD release would be pushed back, too. After all, it’s the general trend for network TV groups to put out a DVD release just before the new season is about to head up to bat. However, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is pressing forward with the original release date, and the one silver lining with the TV airdate being pushed back is that fans who missed a few episodes will have plenty of time to catch up before the new season airs. Touch is headed to DVD on October 16.
Tim Kring’s story, which stars Kiefer Southerland as a father whose gifted boy who can only communicate through numbers, did pretty well after its midseason premiere in 2012, averaging around 9 million viewers when it aired on Fox. That was certainly enough for a renewal, but obviously not enough for Fox to keep the show in the fall lineup, as expected. Still, it could be worse; at least we’re getting a second season, to change up locations and uncover the mystery of Amelia.
If you’re looking to catch or rewatch Touch: The Complete First Season, the October 16 set should be a good bet. However, if you were hoping to learn some more about the show via special features, the set looks to be pretty bare. The Season 1 DVD will come with some deleted scenes, as well as two featurettes, “Touch the World” and “Fates Equation.” The set won’t be too fancy and it won’t come on Blu-ray, but, hey, at least the cover art looks pretty nice.
