The Global Frequency is an independent, illegal, covert intelligence agency determined to prevent international politics from undermining the security of the global community. Led by the former NSA agent Miranda Zero, GF is everywhere and nowhere - and it's mankind's best defense against everything that occurs outside our peripheral vision. This marvel of brains and machinery is hacked into every satellite, mainframe, cell phone and database across the globe. With the help of her central command dispatcher, the feisty but brilliant Aleph, Zero is just a phone call away from tapping anyone anywhere to volunteer their skills to help save the world. GF's newest "recruit," suspended cop Sean Flynn, is paired with introverted Kate Finch, a mastermind of the scientific inner workings of the covert network. Written by CaptainStigmata

slight but fun
19 December 2005 | by (London UK) – See all my reviews

Not the most original show I've seen mainly because it reminded me very much of Search Control.

Michelle Forbes is always watchable and the other, annoyingly unfamiliar, cast members make a pretty good attempt at taking it seriously. The dialogue is sharp and witty but much of the fun lies in spotting how many movies it's ripping off: Blade Runner and The Matrix to name just two.

It could have done with higher powered cast or at least some familiar faces and a longer running time: I don't recall seeing a 44 minute pilot for this sort of show for years.

All told it's entertaining fun and far worse shows have been made into a series: "Lost" anyone?

It's a pity pilots aren't all exposed to public scrutiny and put to a vote: I think this would have been in with a chance.
