    This was a show that I could laugh with, and when I was done with an episode, I felt happy and silly. I am TRULY saddened that their was only one season. I’ve recommended to so people. I won’t be recommending it any more. You know there is a lot of crazier stuff in this world, why can’t we have a silly fun show to get into.

    • Ken Fox says:

      I totally agree. Felt the same way. Just looked forward to feeling good before every episode. Idiot people in power only know how to look at numbers and lack the creativity or talent to build and market an audience. Morons.

  2. Jamie says:

    I liked both of these shows. I’m so sick of Networks doing this to me. I am going to stop giving any new shows a chance because why bother. The networks will just cancel them.

    I thought Frequency was fantastic. Putting the whole premise aside, there were a few plot points that defied logic, but otherwise it was terrific entertainment and it kept me on the edge of my seat. The acting was top-notch. Plus, I would watch anything with Devin Kelley! That’s no slight against Peyton List, she and the whole cast were terrific too!

  4. Professor M says:

    I binge-watched each of these shows on Netflix and thought they had potential. I liked the originality of the concepts though there were some bumps in their development. I liked the actors a lot. At the very least these shows should have been allowed to play out the main plot to make a coherent whole for posterity. Netflix, please pick these up and let them finish! A half a season would do it. Network TV just doesn’t get it. The rules have changed. My best wishes and thanks to the cast and crew of each show.

    Both show was doom from the started. They got the wrong time along with so-so plot.

  6. Paula Stiles says:

    Odd timing. I’d thought that if they waited this long, they would have waited until the upfronts.

    I hope this frees up Jeremy Carver to return to Supernatural. The show really needs him back.

  7. Fernando says:

    Yes!!! I knew it, these two shows had horrible, horrible concepts and scripts. Good actors, nice production value, but the concepts shouldn’t have been green lighted.

  8. Dunstan says:

    All the good shows are on pay TV. End of story.
