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

promising pilot, 2nd episode rather stupid
23 March 2012 | by janosch1See all my reviews

being in Germany i stumble upon new series by chance. i watched the pilot and thought "wow, this could really become my new favorite drama series", the plot was unusual, the acting of the kid was great and kiefer nicely interpreted the role of a scared, overwhelmed and caring dad without being cheesy. yes - the social workers choice of words and idea of help for the kid is rather odd, but it altogether promised to be a good series. the atmosphere was mysterious enough, the dialogues, colors, pictures, plotting and scenes were well done. then finally the second episode aired. and I'm very disappointed. kiefers dialogues are stupid (he sounds way too much like ctu), the storytelling isn't nearly as good as it was in the pilot (way too easy to guess whats happening) and the social workers skills are with her looks and not with the kid. the pilot had 8,5 stars, the new episode more around 5. i hope it will get back to the intriguing start!
