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.

Well it ain't 24
25 January 2012 | by versanctusSee all my reviews

I tuned in because I am a fan of Kiefer, not just 24 but a lot of his work. I will admit I was worried it would be Jack back but with a gifted kid, and for the first 10 or 15 minutes it kinda looked as though it was going that way. However about 20 minutes in, it really started to pull me in and by the end I was completely hooked. This is a smart pilot the acting was great and the plot coming together as it did blew me away. If you watch one episode of one show, make it this one. I really enjoyed it and hope future episodes are just as good. I do worry though about sustainability give the background of the staff behind it (remember Heroes... Great first season then all the way down the tube). I will be tuning in to future episodes and I urge anyone out there too as well.
