Interesting, entertaining, even touching...
16 October 2016 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

This is one of my favorites shows this season. I only watched the pilot but it looks very promising.

It's a TV show based on the 2000 film of the same name. It is a fantasy series but a serious one.

Although its premise has nothing really to do with time traveling, the repercussions are pretty similar. A young female cop in 2016 opens a communication channel with her soon-to-be dead father in 1996 who is also a cop working undercover. In her attempt to save his life, she passes critical information to him that change their lives (and those around them) dramatically.

The pilot episode has a remarkably balanced tone. Everything collaborates almost perfectly to create an atmosphere that is both moving and exciting.

The leading couple of Peyton List (the daughter) and Riley Smith (the father) have great chemistry and their scenes "together" are really touching.

The script isn't over-the-top and it doesn't defies logic as another "parallel universes" series of this season (Timeless). The music and the songs work well in this too.

Overall: The subject is trite and it has misused countless times, but "Frequency" deals with it with great care. The two leads give great, touching performances, and the show looks entertaining and interesting. Highly Recommended.

UPDATE (after seeing the 6th episode): The show has lost many of its initial virtues that I pointed out in my Pilot's review. The plot now seems less interesting, the atmosphere is failing to be captivating ( the Nightingale scenes look like a bad episode of Maggie Q's "Stalker"), its logic starting to fail with numerous plot holes (not to mention the brand new "It is Karma" (inevitable soon or later) element that they introduced to us in episode 1x06) and in the end it seems less and less entertaining. I'll keep watching for now but it starts to bore me and I started to dislike the main characters now that we know more of their actual personalities.
