One of the Best Shows on Television Today!
4 November 2000 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt, one of the finest shows on television today. It's not the best, but one of the very best. What you have here in Freedom is a well cast, well written, and well balanced show. The characters are not the typical formulaic ones. Londo is the clever, one liner kind of guy but he can back it up. Usually these characters are over the top, but in this show is plays perfectly. Decker is the soft spoken, but tough as nails leader, wanting revenge for the death of his wife, and his son who was taken from him. This also is a nice departure, as he is a very complex person who you have to watch in an episode to understand what I mean. As it is hard to describe, it's something you need to see for yourself. Becca, is the strong, fast, and agile female, whom while she doesn't talk much, she sure makes for a well rounded character. She has her comedic moments, and serious ones, and she is so graceful on the screen, not to mention beautiful, she makes for probably the breakout character in the show. Then there is James, otherwise known as "J." He is the loyal, but not afraid to tell the truth, no nonsense kind of guy. Who uses his pent up anger to fight. All these characters have their own sense of humor to them, that really fleshes out how real they are. The actors who play these characters, have been given a role that fits them to a "t." That really showcases their talents. You can click on their names to see their other works, but these are very capable actors, who I think have been given the show of a lifetime. They have a great chemistry with each other, the play off each other so well, it makes the show more believable.

The show blends very well a mix of everything. From the camera angles in the slo-mo action scenes, to the wicked scoring by Eddie Jobson. The show is very smooth visually. Yet it is also smooth mentally, the stories thus far for the episodes have been extremely solid. They have proven to be very tight, intricate and neatly tied together. The second episode had many sub-plots that proved to make for one hell of an episode, that really showed off how good the writing is. The show does not insult the audience at all. It's very reminiscent of First Wave, in that Freedom more than respects its audience. It rewards us for watching and doesn't hit us over the head with action. There is really excellent dialogue in the show, and the writers do not give away much through the episode. You think one thing will happen, when they do something else. There is a real balance to this show.

The fights themselves are well done, and turn out very natural and just have the right flow to them. The stunts that get the slo-mo speed really show off what the show can do for action and eye candy. It's Matrix-like, but it is not the Matrix. The stunts here are grounded in reality, and do not go beyond that. That adds credibility in my book. It's refreshing to see a clever show with so much heart come up on UPN. In the end this show is about one thing, standing up and fighting for what you believe in. There's no greater message in this world to convey, and with everything else this show has in itself. It truly is nice to see UPN supporting high quality television in the show known as Freedom.
