    Touch: Space Race

    Despite the connotation of isolation in the episode title, “Zone of Exclusion” was full of reunions, courtesy of Jake, Martin, and the universe.

  • Episode Summary

    Martin follows Jake's road map to help reconnect a French woman with her twin sister and biological mother, and then helps the girls' father bring the person responsible for their alienation to justice. Meanwhile, a superstitious Italian woman becomes anxious after her astronaut husband loses contact with Earth and he cannot receive instructions from the space station.

    • Zone of Exclusion

      Zone of Exclusion was yet another perfect episode of Touch. I really enjoyed the plot lines, Jake's narrations, and the other wonderful, beautiful and amazing characters who are brought together. I love the story telling theme and process. There is a lot of emotion and connection with the characters and their situations. It was great to see an astronaut and a NYC Cab Dispatcher connect. This episode keeps pace with the series so far and has many awesome scenes which really showcase the traits of humanity, both ugly and beautiful. It was awesome how Jake brought the twins together. The cab driver was and father of the twins and was a sad man for whatever he had done. It's interesting to see how close people are connected and don't even realize. I like the intrigue, drama, and real life situations the characters face. It seems Clea and her boss don't see eye to eye and I now there are changes anything could happen. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!!!moreless
    • Maybe not flawless, but very close!

      Well I definitely think I enjoyed the previous one (or was it the one before?) more than this, but this has to be right up there with the best of them! Great connections as usual, and a very heart-warming ending in more than one way, even though a big bombsheell is dropped on Clea.

      The storylines were phenomenal and absolutely impeccable. THe scenes with the screen in Paris were done to absolute perfection! Couldn't have asked for any more than this! Keep it up, Touch! Great show, and great episode! I highly recommend it! :)moreless
    • Love the show but...

      ...please hire Australian actors to play Australians. The accents in this episode were horrific.
    • Awesome!

      This gotta be the best episode of the season so far. All the connections were incredible and hard to figure out. I got a lot of surprises along the episode. So sad Clea is off the case. What happens now? Who is living in Room Number 6?! Where is Amelia?! Can't wait to find out. I hope this show gets a second season.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Sal: Total stranger took a moment out of his busy day to do me a solid; found something I'd lost. We're all moving forward in this big, crazy world; each of us in our own little box. Wouldn't kill you to make a bit of human contact.

      • Martin: No one has the right to separate a child from a parent they love. Nobody.

      • Jake: (opening narration) They say that the shortest path between two points is a straight line. But what happens if that path gets blocked? When sediment impedes the flow of a river, it redirects. Zigging and zagging instead of following a straight course. What looks to the crow like meandering is to the water, the most efficient route from source to outlet. Nature finds a detour. When two points are destined to touch, but a direct connection is impossible, the universe will always find another way.

      • Jake: (closing narration) If two points are destined to touch, the universe will always find a way to make the connection. Even when all hope seems lost, certain ties cannot be broken. They define who we are... and who we can become. Across space, across time, along paths we cannot predict; nature always finds a way.
