I really enjoyed the story.

But with television/streaming overload, I'm kind of glad I can cross a show off the seemingly never-ending list.

Yup for every show like this and No Tomorrow that gets cancelled, there will be 10 more new shows to replace it.

I liked Frequency, but I know a few months from now I probably won't think about it as something else will occupy my time.

On the plus side, Raimy managed to bring back her Mom in 2016. Also looks like she and Daniel are back together.

On the other hand, doesn't look like things are going to be wrapped up nice and tidy. Looks like Deacon Joe has that apprentice who has been stalking Julie.

I have a feeling that next week's finale won't have any kind of closure to this story arc.

This is one of those canceled shows that would have seen a DVD release ten years ago.

I'm guessing that the CW finally gives up on Peyton List fronting a show. They've put her in everything hoping she'd carry a series. She must have very powerful friends high up the executive chain to get so many chances.

I actually wish we'd gotten a second season of The Tomorrow People.

Not possible, unless the son has been murdering nurses since he was 9.

I don't think the demise of The Tomorrow People or Frequency has anything to do with Peyton List. Blame dumb US audiences and Nielsen (which, I'm told, throws out "outlier" viewing reports, as if non-mainstream viewing habits are not data).

I thought Journeyman was a tremendous series, for example, but it too bit the dust quickly.

I guess I forgot how long it's been happening. So why does the son have the pics of her mother if nightingale is in jail? Was he taking up the mantle?

That's not how television executives view it. Lead roles are coveted and most insiders believe a certain actor can make-or-break a series in the ratings. A lack of ratings are often blamed on the chosen leads.

Fair or not, it's very unlikely Peyton is given another leading role on a network series. She's also aging out of the CW's intended demo.

I honestly have no idea where they are going with that. One possibility is that while the son has been on hiding under an alias he still regularly shows up to the cabin in the woods to attend the Nightingale seminars on how to stalk and murder nurses. But even that is a stretch. Either way, they might address this in the final episode and leave it hanging.
