Kiefer Sutherland returns, and this time, unlike Jack Bauer, he's really sensitive and not that tough (we're given a clue in the first episode when a wretch thumps him and he's unable to respond).

Sutherland frowns his way through this sci-fi tosh as Martin, a single father struggling to raise a gifted son, Jake (David Marouz). Unfortunately, his child doesn't speak and hates to be touched. Jake communicates through numbers – which just happen to connect the whole of humanity… or something like that. Watchable, but highly manipulative hogwash.
