RIP XI Challenge) - this one has some supernatural elements to it. My husband, 22-year old son, and I have started watching the new CW show Frequency and are enjoying it so far.
discovers that the old ham radio in the garage that used to be her
father's suddenly lights up and starts working again, after years of
sitting there broken. Raimy's dad loved his ham radio, and Raimy always
enjoyed going on it with him. To her surprise, the grown-up Raimy
suddenly hears her dad's voice coming through the radio. They begin
talking and - after a lot of disbelief and convincing discussions - they
figure out that she is in 2016 and he is in 1996, and they are somehow
talking to each other. Raimy's dad, Frank, played by Riley Smith, is
just one day from the undercover operation that will take his life, and
Raimy warms him of what is going to happen, from the crime report she
Well, you know what happens when you tamper with
history! The next day, after Raimy warned her dad of what would happen
that night, a lot of things - both good and bad - have changed. For
everyone else, this is just the way things have always been, but Raimy
can remember both the original 2016 world and this new, changed world.
She and her dad begin talking every day, trying to work together to
solve some serious, life-changing crimes that occur in both timelines
and hoping to change some of their own personal tragedies.
Only two episodes of Frequency
have aired so far, but we are loving it! It's a police show but with a
big twist: communicating across time. I always love time travel plots,
and though this is not time travel per se, it has the same element of
"be careful what you change in the past because it can have unforeseen
consequences," which I love. My husband pointed out halfway through the
first episode that this show is based on a movie, also called Frequency
and starring Dennis Quaid, that he and I watched a few years ago. We
are enjoying the twisty plot so far and can't wait to see where it goes.
Frequency is currently airing on CW network, Wednesdays at 9 pm. You can catch past episodes On Demand, on the CW website, and on Amazon Prime for $1.99 an episode or $24.99 for all of season one.
