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. In his search to find out if Jake is just mute or if he has some other condition ... Written by Huggo

Jake Bohm: The ratio is always the same. 1 to 1.618, over and over and over again. The patterns are hidden in plain sight. You just have to know where to look. Things most people see as chaos actually follow subtle laws of behavior. Galaxies, plants, seashells. The patterns never lie. But only some of us can see how the pieces fit together. 7,080,360,000 of us live on this tiny planet. This is the story of some of those people.

In a word: Finally! Something a bit higher, shall we say, and truly and interestingly thought provoking with an unusual orientation to the bigger picture. We are all the stuff of stars. If a fly sneezes in Australia, does it effect the color of sky in Brazil? Well, yes, to some perhaps miniscule or not so miniscule extent. We are all interconnected, more so than we will ever know, and this series seems to be setting out to explore this truth. Wow. I applaud this effort. Film, whether in movie form or, dare I say, TV, is the new art form. Art in the form of painting? Where is it? Gone, sadly. And there are some instances in movies or... yes, TV where art is actually evident. This show evidences this, if only in it's concept, or the concept or truth that it portrays. May we continue in this direction. Let us rise out of the mud, like the lotus.
