Video: A Few Minutes With... "Touch" Executive Producer Carol Barbee

Part one of five from this week's event at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Last night in North Hollywood at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, a panel for Academy members and fans was held to discuss FOX's freshman drama, "Touch." The series not only focuses on the challenged relationship between a single father (Kiefer Sutherland) and his mentally gifted son (David Mazouz) but also explores the concept of how everyone on our planet unexpectedly - and sometimes unknowingly - "touches" each other's lives. Our Jim Halterman was on the red carpet prior to the event to chat with Sutherland (Martin), Mazouz (Jake), co-star Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Clea), Executive Producer Carol Barbee and Creator/Executive Producer Tim Kring about the challenges in the series and what's to come before the two-part first season finale that will air next month on FOX.

Fibonacci sequence: 'Touch' numbers explained

If you've read "The DaVinci Code," you may be familiar with the Fibonacci sequence. If you're watching "Touch," you're surely getting a sense that it's important. So what is it? Let us give you a course in the magical pattern of numbers. Okay, it's not really magical, but it certainly is uncanny. The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers that first appeared in a book by Leonardo of Pisa in 1202. Basically this is the gist: The sequence starts with 0. Then 1. Then you add each of the numbers to the next. So, 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, and on and on forever. Okay, fine. So math. Great. The cool part of it is that the sequence appears everywhere in nature. In the breeding of bees, branching in trees, how leaves are arranged on a stem, pineapples, artichoke flowers, an uncurling fern and pine cones.

'Touch': Martin's Journey Brings Him Closer To His Dead Wife

There are two conflicting and very strong emotional experiences for Kiefer Sutherland's Martin Bohm on " Touch " (Thu., 9p.m. ET on Fox). First, there is his devotion and love for his son, Jake. But also he is still struggling with the grief over his wife Sarah, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. This week, the complex narrative that weaves the stories on this series circled the number 9.50, and in doing so it brought not only Martin some much needed closer on Sarah's passing, but two other men whom she met and knew during that time in her life. Jake was with Martin throughout, and his actions created a sort of Rube Goldberg affect to interconnect three separate stories that all touched upon one another by the close of the hour. The connection for Martin was in meeting Bobby, a bike messenger that Sarah helped tutor through his GED shortly before her death. This meeting inspired Martin to look into her last appointment for that day, which was to drop her wedding ring off to get it engraved with her slogan for their growing family: "1+1=3." In another part of the country, the fireman who carried Sarah down 31 flights before he simply couldn't carry her anymore -- he told himself she had already died, but seems to have doubts -- played the numbers that plagued his guilt and won the lottery. Through helping a pastor nearby, he found his own calling to take over that church. This after Jake's interference with a satellite dish led to the recovery of two wounded soldiers in the Middle East. Yes, it's this complex every week. Watch it unfold each week on "Touch," Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox. TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser. http://feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/1dQ9XfI1Ti8/touch-martins-journey-for-son-closer-to-wife-video_n_1407623.html
