Us Rating: ** 1/2

The softer side of Jack Bauer: 24's Kiefer Sutherland plays a goodhearted hero in this supernatural drama. He's immensely likable as widower Martin, who discovers that his quiet son, Jake (David Mazouz), is connected to an otherworldly force that sends him clues on how to help struggling strangers around the world. (Got all that?) Unfortunately, the premiere executes that intriguing concept in such a muddy way, it's difficult to fully embrace. (Fox, 9 p.m.)
