Frequency: Season 1 (2016-2017)



Critic Consensus: Frequency's confusing timeline and somewhat familiar dramatic framework are offset by solid acting and an intriguingly loaded premise.

Tv Season Info

When Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) lost her father Frank (Riley Smith), an undercover cop, at the age of 8, she believed he was turned and vowed to never follow in his footsteps. Now a detective herself, Raimy begins to uncover evidence that her father may not have been a corrupt cop like she was led to believe. When lightning strikes the antenna of his old, broken ham radio, Raimy begins to hear a man's voice coming through. Realizing that the man she is communicating with is her father from decades earlier, Raimy warns him of his impending death and is able to prevent it. However, by altering the past she sets off a butterfly effect that changes her reality in ways she could never have predicted. The first season also stars Devin Kelley, Anthony Ruivivar and Mekhi Phifer.

Frank and Raimy's relationship is the core of the show. For the majority of the season, the episodic elements suffered, but Frank and Raimy's dynamic kept you coming back for more.

I'm a sucker for these stories, and this one hit all the right notes. Peyton List and Riley Smith do a wonderful job as father and daughter over the airwaves.

Supernatural time-shifting drama has heart, some violence.

October 19, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

"Frequency's" concept was mildly intriguing in theaters, and it's mildly intriguing now, even with an extra layer or two of musthy TV-style goop to top off the story's basic hokeyness.
