The Global Frequency
- Hey all, haven't heard from the lists for a bit. Haven't had the chance
to read much Cussler or adventure since I'm reading the Brother Cadfael
novels. However, for fans of the techno-thriller genre I have a
recommendation. I just watched the unaired pilot for a show called
"Global Frequency". Based on a 12 issue comic by Warren Ellis with a
different artist every issue, it's the story of a covert organization
working to solve the problems created by governmental secret programs.
This is the only time I've ever watched a show with people typing on
computers as a main point and not been bored. It's fast, suspenseful
and has a good cast including Michelle Forbes and the always adorable
and great Aimee Garcia. If you can get ahold of it online I can't
recommend it enough. It was not picked up and WB says it won't ever put
it out on dvd because of it's popularity on torrent.

martyrs. And if that was wrong, thank you Mike for never being
right."-Karl Kessel, on his friend Mike Wieringo.
