Frequency - CW Pilot Script Review


A good movie doesn’t inevitably make a good series. And a good pilot doesn’t inevitably make a good series either. Frequency with Dennis Quaid & Jim Caviezel was a nice little movie. It was NOT necessary to transform into a weekly TV series. It doesn’t mean the pilot is not good. It’s quite okay, to tell the truth. And it doesn’t come such as a surprise since they just took the same story and simplified it as much as they could without losing the logic, the consistency of it all, so it can play over the course of 42 minutes. But as much as I enjoyed reading the script, I don’t like what the series is poised to become: just another police procedural with a sci-fi twist. And to be perfectly honest, I don’t even understand how they can play with the same idea -two cops in two different timelines investigating together- past a few episodes. Unless our heroin, Raimy, becomes a “cold cases” investigator for murders that happened in the 90s, when her father was still alive, which is pretty specific, hum. Even the serialized part of the show can’t sustain much longer. So: okay pilot, future boring TV show.
