Somewhere Between (ABC) – Premieres 24th July
A comedically bad drama here where after a serial killer has begun a murder spree the local government put through a decision to restart executing prisoners, including one who while suffering of a mental disability was convicted of murder.
It follows Laura Price a TV producer whose husband Tom is a district attorney working on the cases coming up from the local governments recent decision, and Serena, their effortlessly annoying daughter.
As Serena skives off from doing her homework she chats online to Ruby, a fan of her favourite singer and daughter of the man on death row, leading her to sneak off from home to meet up with her. Laura discovers this and finds Serena at Rubys school. On the way back Laura and Serena stop off in fortune tellers house as they watch for someone to fix a punctured tyre. In the house the teller informs Laura that bad things will be happening to her soon and that she can’t change the future.
Three months later as the serial killer continues his reign of terror, Laura is working on her crimestoppers show as her babysitter arrives, so one of the shows runners takes Serena to them but between leaving the building and getting to the sitters can the kid is abducted by the killer. Laura then makes an appeal live on TV pleading to the killer to return her daughter. During this time the brother of the disabled convict, a former police detective called Nico, while working as a private investgator is kidnapped by mobsters he was looking into.
Serenas body is then found floating in the river leading Laura to go to the scene of the crime to commit suicide. At the exact same time and only a few feet away from Lauras suicide attempt, Nico is being tied up and chucked into the river by the mobsters. As Laura drowns she wakes up on the beach to head home only to find she’s gone back in time 3 months, and that she can possibly change the future events.
All-in-all it’s a convoluted plot with some really bad dialogue and shonky acting. If you want watch a time travel show where family members are save from a killer you’re better off viewing Frequency.
