    Signal and Noise

    Maybe if every cop had a personal stake in their investigations, they'd find a suspect in under 24 hours, too.

    As frustrating as it will probably get, Frequency Season 1 Episode 2 makes it very clear that ANY action in the past that's based upon knowledge from the future is going have a butterfly effect, no matter how small.

    Things are moving very fast. Frank and Raimi barely know each other. He went undercover when she was six and "died" when she was eight. As adults, they've built up a quick trust over the ham radio because of the bizarre nature of their situation and the sudden death of Raimi's mom in the present.

    That's not something even a total stranger would gloss over. Their bond was tenuous, but the pain she felt when she lost the woman Frank loved, and all of the implications that story had for Frank's present and future solidified their father/daughter relationship.

    Frank also had to hear that it was his own squad that ...

    The Near Far Problem

    Nobody thought catching the Nightingale Killer would be that easy, did they?

    Raimy got her hopes up on Frequency Season 1 Episode 3, as she and Frank worked together to capture a very messed up man. Unfortunately for Raimy, there are a lot of screwed up fellows in the New York City area, and Thomas Goff wasn't the one she wanted.

    While I'm very the mystery of the Nightingale Killer will stick around to keep the stakes as high as possible, I'm afraid I've forgotten a very important piece of this puzzle from Frequency Season 1 Episode 1: the date Julie will be killed by the guy.

    That seems pretty important overall, unless the date is as malleable as the information updating on the computer before Raimy's eyes. 

    And wasn't that a great moment? As Frank and Satch were tracking Goff and inspecting his shed, Raimy was watching the brief about Maya Gowen as if it was an Ebay auction and she was waiting for the price to increase so she'd ...

    Bleed Over

    The Kardashians are not alone.

    If I read The People vs OJ Simpson: American Crime Story right, they became addicted to fame because of everything their father was going through as a result of his involvement in that crime, so it's no surprise Ava felt special on Frequency Season 1 Episode 4.

    There are probably a lot of people who find themselves in similar situations, but never achieve the ranks of the Kardashians. Instead, they probably just wind up feeling guilty.

    Frank doesn't get the respect he deserves from anyone. He was dissed by both his adult daughter and his wife. They question either his motives or rationale far too often.

    Frank's instincts are incredible. It might be difficult for Raimy to let go and trust him because she held with her the idea he was a bad cop for so long, but since they "met" as adults, he's been right at every turn.

    She was disappointed in him for not pulling her back when she got a littl...

    Seven Three

    So. THAT happened.

    After watching Frequency Season 1 Episode 5, it's easy to see why it was a no brainer to move it around the schedule and to play it against the CMA awards and the potential final game of the World Series.

    Well done, CW, well done.

    Because "Seven Three" could be skipped on the DVD set with a brief montage highlighting what we already know about Stan and adding in a few sweet scenes featuring a grumpy Raimy and her proud daddy.

    I mean, geez, we've seen Raimy grumpy. She's been Grumpy Gus since her world was turned upside down with the ham. But when she started out as a rookie police officer? A smile would have been nice.

    In either timeline, it would have been something for her to just give it up and enjoy the moment. Wasn't this her dream? 

    Frank: Slow down. We're not going to help anybody if we're not gonna get there.
    Raimy: What the hell, dad? Calm down.

    Wouldn't it be exciting if someday Curtis Armstrong surprised everyone and played a good guy?

    That didn't happen on Frequency Season 1 Episode 6, but even though he was a kook, he some decent thoughts for Raimy to ponder about this new situation in which she's found herself.

    As depressing as the idea is that you can't change destiny, it shouldn't come as a surprise to Raimy, who is actively trying to get Daniel to believe the same thing.

    Frankly, I find destiny confusing when you're talking about two differently timelines.

    If this whole business about fate is right, wouldn't the original timeline be the one that's meant to be? Where does destiny start and end? What tree trunk do you chop?Read more ››

    Meh. This one didn't quite work for me.

    After watching Frequency Season 1 Episode 7, I've realized what really worked in the early episodes has gone by the wayside.

    Instead, we're stuck with relationship drama and dour-faced Raimy the crime-solver. 

    Look, I'm not going say I expect Frequency to be rainbows and unicorns all the time. The day-to-day subject matter is unpleasant.

    On both sides of the timeline, father and daughter are trying to solve the crime of a serial killer who will, in only weeks, take the life of their wife and mother. It's hard to take a break and let loose.

    Then there's Satch, the partner on both ends. On one side, he's holding the world against dear old dad because...issues. In the present, he's holding the world against himself because his happiness has flown the coop, he's watching his former friend's daughter get caught in the same rut as her father and to top it all off, he thinks he's a terri...

    Repercussions for Raimy, and Frank Confides in Julie

    While every cop in the city, including Satch, thinks Raimy is a hero, she's still accountable for dispensing vigilante justice. Internal Affairs is going to conduct an investigation, and Satch takes her badge until the issue is resolved.

    Frank and Raimy Search for a Mystery Woman

    On this episode of Frequency, "Interference," as Raimy and Frank look into Larissa Abbott's past, they uncover more clues that could lead to the Nightingale. Frank and Julie don't know how to move forward.

    Satch and Raimy receive DNA confirmation that Larissa Abbott was the Nightingale's first victim. They wonder what the connection between Larissa and the killer was. Her brother threw away his sister's stuff in 2001 which leads Raimy to ask Frank to try and take a look back in 1996. The only problem is her family doesn't know she's dead yet and won't for another five years. Raimy warns her dad he can't say anything. Their best bet is for her to work the leads in 2016 so they don't change the course of history. If Raimy can find the Nightingale, he'll never see Frank coming.
