Storyline

For the third time in three weeks, Jake has run away from school and climbed atop a cell phone tower, breaking the tower's security alarms at precisely 3:18 in the afternoon each time. For Child and Family Services, they, who have previously diagnosed Jake as autistic, see Jake's behavior as Martin not being able to handle Jake on his own, they who send Clea Hopkins to investigate. To perform a proper assessment, she removes Jake from the home and places him in an institution for two weeks where she can monitor him. Martin not only finds that move contemptible, but also believes that Jake is trying to tell him something, especially as the numbers Jake is scribbling seem to pop up elsewhere in their lives, as Jake makes the stray cell phones that Martin has found for him ring simultaneously, and after the lottery ticket Jake temporarily steals ends up being the multimillion dollar jackpot winning numbers.

An amazing experience
26 January 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

First thoughts that came to my mind when i read about the plot of the show i thought it's gonna be another procedural in which random numbers are given out and then there will be Martin(Kiefer Sutherland) doing pretty much the same what happens in "Person of Interest" but the first episode with its mythology and global storyline has proved me wrong.I guess this is one of the many times I've been wrong about something but believe me I was never so glad that i was proved wrong.I think with actor like Kiefer Sutherland and Danny Glover the show is bound to become one of the hits for fox.The kid is great too. The show just changed how i look at things like everything is connected. Tim Kring has got himself a winner.Well you know as they say "WELL BEGUN IS HALF DONE"
