Halfway through the drama, I liked what I saw even if I saw it already. The only peculiar thing in the drama was the use of the haunted radio that linked the main police officers from the past and present. But I have religiously watched Criminal Minds, Dexter, The Mentalist and the rest of police procedural hollywood tv series so there’s nothing surprising that I saw with the criminal files they tackled. It was more of me waiting if the writer will niftily tie the loose end and connect the relevance of the supernatural twist as a whole.
While the story conflict was resolved, I didn’t like the open-ended closure. I followed the thrill and analyze the situations like I was also a police officer, and then I was given something to ponder on in the dying minutes of the drama. I was like what was that? You already baked a satisfying conclusion, why cool it down and put it in a fridge? But for the record, that’s my only concern about “Signal”. Over all it was excitingly projected. The runs on how they made the cases simultaneously being solved from different timelines were easy to follow and the main actors exhibited great chemistry.
Signal tells about two police officers from the past and present communicating through a broken radio in solving cases that were happening in the past and were re-opened from cold cases vault in the present. The cases involved led them to discovering the connection they had in the past and the clues from the present to be given, so the future can be changed to save them and their loved ones. It’s a crazy timeline but when you watch it you won’t be lost. Plot like this isn’t supposed to be described in details so I’m just going to warn you that the ending is the only thing that I thought felt lacking, but the narration all throughout was well directed and engaging.
If you are up for quick fix of cop drama with a supernatural serving, plan your next binge-watching activity and set it to the radio frequency of Signal.
