Storyline

Widower Martin Bohm's wife, Sarah Bohm, died in the twin towers on September 11, 2001. Previously a newspaper journalist, Martin since has worked a series of odd jobs in trying to make sense of his life, which includes caring for his son Jake, who was born on October 26, 2000. Jake was diagnosed as autistic, primarily because he has never uttered a word, and has an aversion to being touched. But Martin begins to believe that there is more to Jake's life than meets the eye. Jake, using a series of numbers, leads Martin to discoveries about a certain equilibrium to the world. Martin may ultimately find out what Jake's grand purpose is, and why Jake was placed on the face of the Earth. Written by Huggo

Great premise but scattered.
5 February 2012 | by jenscarbieSee all my reviews

I love Keifer. He's one of my favorite actors ever. That kid is phenomenal too. This show could be great but it's as if it's written by a person with a short span of attention on a caffeine buzz. Too jumpy. I wondered why. Then I saw who wrote it and I knew the reason I felt such frustration and affection for the fast forward button. The same guy who reeled me in with such a great cast and story--Heroes--only to dash my hopes and kill my dreams with his lack of plotting ability,was back. Yes, I'm talking about Mr Kring, with his quasi-pseudo M. Knight Shamalamawatchamcallits(I don't care how it's spelled)twists and turns. Those are fine. But, then he loses his focus and chases random plot bunnies into dead end episode arcs that I could care less about at the expense of his good characters. I'll wait before I get hooked on this. Won't get fooled again. Plot bunnies look cute but they are evil!
