As Frank and Raimy continue to talk through time via his ham radio. Raimy convinces her dad to warn her mum Julie to be careful as she is going to be a victim of the nightingale killer. However Frank and Julie have not spoken in two years. Meanwhile Raimy and Frank start to investigate Thomas Goff as a possible person of interest they suspect might be the nightingale.
This series continues on it’s strong start with it’s pilot episode as we learn more about the lead characters and the changes their interactions through time are creating.
While I suspect the series was designed to keep the viewer engaged Frequency is developing into a show where you have to watch every episode because they all tie in. If you miss too much of it you may become lost and not know what’s going on.
It will be interesting to see how the show continues to grow and in which direction the creators take it.
Have you ever thought what you might do if you were presented with the chance to communicate with a deceased family member from the past what would you do?
That is the basic premise of Frequency. Based on the 2000 Gregory Hoblit film by the same name.
Frequency tells the story of Raimy Sullivan ( Peyton List) a NYPD detective who after a lightening storm finds she can communicate with her deceased father Francis “Frank” Sullivan (Riley Smith) a NYPD detective who was killed in 1996 while working undercover via his old ham radio. Raimy finds she is talking to her father in the time directly preceding her father’s death. Raimy gives her father advise in the hope of preventing her death which triggers the “butterfly effect” in the timeline. Frank & Raimy then have have to team up across time to work together on a decades old murder case.
I have not seen the original movie this series is based off however I have been informed that it is worth watching.
The series however starts very strongly. I came across it by way of a short 7 min clip on YouTube which immediately grabbed my attention (and in some parts gave me chills). The pilot episode shows a great deal of promise. The acting was very powerful with a good strong cast showing what they can put onto the screen from the very first scene.
Frequency is developed by Supernatural & Being Human’s Jeremy Carver. It is on The CW and is also on Netflix. It looks like running for at least 3 seasons from the start. This is a series which is well worth picking up now and going along for the ride.
