Frequency Season 1 Episode 4 Review: Bleed Over

26 October 2016 7:55 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The Kardashians are not alone.

If I read The People vs Oj Simpson: American Crime Story right, they became addicted to fame because of everything their father was going through as a result of his involvement in that crime, so it's no surprise Ava felt special on Frequency Season 1 Episode 4.

There are probably a lot of people who find themselves in similar situations, but never achieve the ranks of the Kardashians. Instead, they probably just wind up feeling guilty.

Frank doesn't get the respect he deserves from anyone. He was dissed by both his adult daughter and his wife. They question either his motives or rationale far too often.

Frank's instincts are incredible. It might be difficult for Raimy to let go and trust him because she held with her the idea he was a bad cop for so long, but since they "met" as adults, he's been right at every turn. »

Fall TV’s Top 5 New Shows

18 October 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar on Fall TV’s top five new shows…

Due to how pilots are spaced out this fall, figuring out to the right time to launch a top five list gets complicated. Wait too long and you fall behind on shows that have started airing as early as August. Submit too early and newcomers like this week’s Chance on Hulu and Dirk Gently on BBC America, don’t get a, well, chance. Then there’s personal handicaps, like lack of a Netflix subscription, that force any commentary on shows like Luke Cage to be left to a later date.

So. what is this list saying? It’s saying, out of an extensive pool of new network, basic cable, and Amazon titles, these five are the best and most worthy of your commitment this season. As a title, it’s a mouthful, but if you’ve seen how large »

Think You've Seen Frequency's Star Riley Smith Before? You're Right

6 October 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The CW's Frequency is one of Fall's hottest new shows, and we've also garnered some interest in one of its stars, Riley Smith. If you found his face vaguely familiar (and extremely attractive) during the premiere, you're certainly not alone. Turns out, he's actually been playing our onscreen crush for several years now. Not only did he romance an Olsen twin in New York Minute, but he also had a guest stint on one very popular cult TV show. See where you recognize him from here, and then find out when your favorite shows are returning this season. »

‘Frequency’ Showrunner Breaks Down That Ending, Raimy’s ‘Remnant Memories’

5 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Wednesday’s series premiere episode of “Frequency”) A lot went down in the series premiere of The CW’s time travel show “Frequency,” and that ending seemed to set up for a lot more to happen as we move forward. Through their cross-time communication via an old ham radio, in 2016 Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) successfully kept her father Frank (Riley Smith) from being killed in 1996, creating a new timeline in which he was a figure in her life into adulthood, but her mother was murdered by a serial killer called the. »

Frequency Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Pilot

5 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Raimy always believed her father was a bad man, a bad cop, killed after he had royally screwed things up.

She found out differently on her 28th birthday, because on Frequency Season 1 Episode 1, Raimy talked to her father for the first time in 20 years.

If you've seen the movie Frequency, this story wasn't all that new to you. The movie was very similar to what played out in the pilot.

The movie was easily wrapped up in two hours, but there were differences, the most pressing being that the father wasn't a cop, but a fireman. 

That may seem like a small change, but I think it allows for a lot more exploration of Frank's story in the timeline before the alteration, if they want to go that way.

Already, so much of what we saw in the pilot has been eradicated. But what wasn't was the relationship between father and daughter. »

Frequency Premiere: Is The CW's Time- Travel Drama Worth More of Your Time?

5 October 2016 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Time travel is all the rage on TV right now, from escapist fun (Timeless) to sweeping romance (Outlander). The CW’s Frequency — a reboot of the 2000 Dennis Quaid film — opts for the heartstring-tugging route, with a daughter reconnecting with her deceased dad via a magical radio.

Wednesday’s series premiere introduced us to Raimy Sullivan (Mad Men‘s Peyton List), an NYPD detective in present-day Queens, with a nice boyfriend who’s about to pop the question. But Raimy’s still haunted by the memory of her cop dad Frank (Nashville‘s Riley Smith), who died while working undercover twenty years ago, »

‘Frequency’ Creator Explains Show’s ‘Butterfly-Effect Rules’

5 October 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jeremy Carver doesn’t necessarily consider his new series “Frequency” a time-travel show, though it’s a handy shorthand in a season lousy with time travel programs. “Let’s put it this way: It’s a lot snappier to say it’s a time-travel show than a cross-time communication show,” the showrunner told TheWrap in a recent interview about his series, which is an updated remake of the 2000 Dennis Quaid film of the same name. This time around, it’s 2016, and police detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) inexplicably finds herself able to communicate on an old ham radio with her father, »

'Frequency' Series Premiere Recap: A Father and Daughter Change the Course of History

5 October 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

On the series premiere of Frequency, Detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) is reunited with her deceased father, Frank (Riley Smith), via a ham radio. Raimy discovers her father isn't the man she thought she knew, and their communication sets in motion a series of events that alters both of their lives.

Raimy Sullivan is a beautiful NYPD police detective. It's her 28th birthday, and she learns accidentally that her boyfriend Daniel (Daniel Bonjour) has a big surprise planned (She finds an engagement ring in his shaving kit.) But Raimy's life is far from perfect. Her father, Frank Sullivan, died two days after her 8th birthday 20 years ago. Frank also worked for the NYPD, and while working deep undercover, Frank lost his way, forgot which side he was on and was killed as a result.

If You Don't Tune Into Frequency This Week, You're Missing Out

5 October 2016 8:50 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

While there are a couple new shows centered around time travel this Fall, Frequency is worth a look. Not only does the CW series include some very interesting sci-fi elements, but it also has a hearty dose of mystery and drama. If that doesn't sell you, it's also created by Supernatural writer/producer Jeremy Carver. Ahead of Wednesday's premiere, here's what you need to know! Who's Starring? Peyton List (remember Jane from Mad Men?), Riley Smith, Mekhi Phifer, Anthony Ruivivar, Lenny Jacobson, Devin Kelley, and Daniel Bonjour What It's About The reboot of the 2000 film of the same name is about a woman (List) who accidentally alters the present when an old ham radio helps her get in contact with her deceased father who is 20 years in the past. First Impression After watching the first episode, I'm hooked; the pilot has plenty of twists and turns that left me wanting the next episode. »

Review: The CW’s new time-bending police mystery Frequency

5 October 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

New sci-fi tinged procedural drama Frequency premieres tonight on The CW — an odd nostalgic mash of a cop show and a time-bending mystery involving a parallel universe. The series, based on the eponymous 2000 film, sees a daughter and father reunited through time by an old ham radio that springs to life. The lead actress Peyton List’s character Raimy Sullivan muses to her father in the trailer: “Sometimes I wonder what we would say if we had one more chance to talk.” She gets her wish. Sullivan is an NYPD cop whose negativity about her father Frank’s (Riley Smith) disappearance and death is turned...read more »

TV Review: ‘Frequency’

3 October 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For some time now, the CW has tried to turn Peyton List into one of the network’s home-grown stars, and for good reason. List, possibly best known to TV fans as Roger Sterling’s wife Jane on “Mad Men,” is an appealing presence; she provided brisk leadership on the short-lived CW sci-fi drama “The Tomorrow People,” and changed gears adroitly for her brief stint as a melodramatic villain on “The Flash.”

This time around the network has put List in “Frequency,” which unites two of the fall’s biggest drama trends: time travel and missing parents (a number of new programs showcase mothers and fathers who are a major presence in their children’s lives, before and after their deaths or disappearances). But despite strenuous efforts to bring emotional weight to this tale of a decades-spanning connection, “Frequency,” which is based on the 2000 film of the same name, cannot disguise its true identity as a fairly »

Past Meets Present in new promo for the Frequency TV series

6 September 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a month to go until its season premiere, a new promo has arrived online for The CW’s  upcoming drama Frequency entitled ‘Past Meets Present’.  A re-imagining of the 2000 sci-fi thriller of the same name, the series stars Peyton List, Riley Smith, Mekhi Phifer, Anthony Ruivivar, Lenny Jacobson, Devin Kelley and Daniel Bonjour; watch it below after the official synopsis…

Detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) has always wanted to prove that she is nothing like her father. In 1996, when Raimy was eight years old, NYPD Officer Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) left Raimy and her mother, Julie (Devin Kelley), behind when he went deep undercover, got corrupted, and got himself killed. Or so the story has always gone. Now, twenty years later, Raimy is stunned when a voice suddenly crackles through her father’s old, long-broken ham radio – it’s Frank, somehow transmitting over the airwaves and through the decades »

Time Travel on TV Today, Ranked From Least to Most Tricky

5 September 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Time is not on our side, especially in the era of “peak TV.” Perhaps this is why networks are hopping onto the time travel bandwagon. At this year’s network upfront presentations in May, four of the five broadcast networks plugged shows that revolved around a time travel element at their core.

Taking journeys through the fourth dimension is a concept that has appeared in fiction since the late 19th century, popularized by H.G. Wells’ novel “The Time Machine.” The continued appeal of time travel boils down to wish fulfillment: the desire to visit other eras like a tourist, the yearning to relive or change the past, the curiosity about the future and the ability to squeeze more experiences into our ephemeral lives.

Although Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan disagree on whether time travel will someday be possible based on our apparent lack of visitors from the future, that hasn »

The CW Fall Dramas: First Impressions of Frequency and No Tomorrow

3 September 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We're trying to make your lives a little bit easier by giving you a leg up on the upcoming fall network dramas. We watched every pilot available, and we're sharing first impressions, competition predictions and whether you should watch.

What more can you ask? Read on to see what's up with offerings from The CW, Frequency and No Tomorrow.

No Tomorrow - Tuesdays at 9/8c - Premieres on October 4

First Impression: The CW seems to either want superheroes or quirky romantic comedies. No Tomorrow falls into the second category.

Ellie (Tori Anderson) sees Xavier (Joshua Sasse), the man of her dreams, and fate seems to be pushing them together. He's a little off kilter. Should she still go for it? If she didn't, there wouldn't be a show. The pilot took an odd what if scenario and made it sweet and entertaining. 

It doesn't take long to root for this new couple, »
