Across Space And Time
The premise of Frequency is refreshingly different among similarly themed sci-fi web series.
The project centers on two exceptional women who find themselves inexorably drawn together from across space and time.
The show is set in a world where certain individuals have access to extra-sensory "frequencies" which give them special powers such as: mind control, healing, and telekinesis.
Frequency takes place in two time periods: 1986, and the present day.
In the present day we meet Claire Du Maurier (Meredith Sause), a powerful clairvoyant. Guided by her visions, she is driven to try to prevent the catastrophes she sees.
In 1986 we are introduced to Deanna Shelley, D.D.S. (Lisa Gagnon), a free-spirited dentist who is also a telepath.
Deanna and Claire's destinies become intertwined when they encounter Travis (Anthony Hughes), an enigmatic time-traveler with a connection to both women.
Sci-Fi On A Different Frequency
Produced by KV Works, Frequency is a intriguing mix of sci-fi, action-adventure, and romantic drama told from the LGBT perspective.
This makes for terrific and unique storytelling, especially since science fiction centering on LGBT characters still remains far too rare.
Fortunately, the project is part of a new watershed of speculative fiction being told by diverse, underrepresented cultural voices.
Beyond The Typical
Written and produced by women, the show features a script of uncommon complexity.
The series' main hallmark is the performances of leads Ms. Sause and Ms. Gagnon. Both women have great chemistry and charisma.
The cinematography is also a standout. Being shot on location in North Carolina gives Frequency a regional flavor that helps set it apart from similar projects.
The series also has gritty action scenes that are well choreographed and executed.
My only major criticism is the narrative can be difficult to follow at times.
While individual scenes are often quite compelling, connecting plot lines are sometimes muddled by character motivations and reactions that can seem illogical.
Overall, the series is an engaging watch with fascinating characters you quickly become invested in.
