Storyline

Suspended police detective Sean Flynn is having a bad day. However, things get interesting when he finds a half-dissolved corpse by accident and decides to pick up a ringing cellphone next to the dead man. Over the phone, he is introduced to The Global Frequency, a subject of a popular conspiracy theory that claims that GF is a secret rogue intelligence agency that answers to no one. It turns out that this is quite true when it's no nonsense boss, former NSA agent and martial arts expert Miranda Zero, introduces herself to Sean and asks for his help. Her agency's sole goal is to protect the world from global threats that are too scary for the general public to know anything about, so GF operates on a strict need to know basis. Whenever someone who's deemed trustworthy is close and can help with the case, they are immediately contacted by GF's no. 2 and Miranda's right hand woman Aleph, who works as the organization's operator. Now it's Sean's chance to help. His natural detective ...

Trivia

After viewing the pilot, executives at the WB television channel decided not to put the series into production and it was shelved. The pilot only saw the light of day when it was "leaked" onto the Internet and distributed using the Bittorrent protocol (incidentally the first time an unaired pilot television program was released to the public in this way). Despite campaigning from fans, the WB stuck by the decision to pass on the series. See more »

Goofs

When the guards riddle the back wall of the elevator with bullets, the metal around "bullet holes" is bent inward, toward the shooters, making it clear that the "bullet holes" were punched from the other side using squibs. See more »

I must have seen a different pilot than other reviewers
1 December 2010 | by vane117See all my reviews

I find the glowing reviews of other reviewers difficult to understand. I absolutely love the original comics of Global Frequency. However, this pilot is a weak shadow of the source material. Specifically, the actress playing Miranda Zero lacked energy and was completely uninteresting. In addition, the characters had an almost "Fringe-like" ability to remember the one crucial piece of 30-year-old information in a matter of seconds. In essence, they are walking, talking deus ex machinae.

I completely understand why WB chose not to proceed with the series.

I'm glad someone else is writing a new pilot.
