Last week's premiere was very enjoyable. In the show,
little kids are following some unseen voice, an invisible
friend or pal who urges them to play a game, which results
in killing or injuring their parents. An FBI agent, who's
grieving for her husband, investigates the incidents because
all of the parents are involved in some kind of high level
government security. She found out in the premiere
that her husband is not really dead, and the audience found
out that he's somehow related to what's going on with the
kids. It was very interesting and how the kids act is really
creepy. At the very end of the pilot, her deaf son got his
hearing back because of his secret pal.
I look forward to seeing what happens next. There are so
many questions to be answered. If they're plausible and
interesting, than this will be a great show! That's always
the question with these type of shows...how it turns out is
the key, and whether the audience sticks around (if they
take too long to let us know the answers to the secrets).
I'll be watching, how about you?
Apparently the show is based on a Ray Bradbury story
called "Zero Hour." I probably read it, but a long time ago,
so I don't remember it. It was also part of "Ray Bradbury
Theater" back in the 80's.

unthinkable. The Whispers is produced by Steven

In the country's center of political power, Washington D.C.,
several kids have been talking about their imaginary friend.
What the parents don't know is this friend is not as
imaginary as they assume. And when the mysterious games they
play turn dangerous, FBI child specialist Claire Bennigan is
called in to investigate. Is this just a case of children
being led down the wrong path? Or is it something far more
unsettling... as she searches for the answer.
Halfway across the world, in the middle of the Sahara
Desert, Defense Department operative Wes Lawrence unearths a
strange, haunting geological phenomenon. Are these mysteries
connected? The answer will force them all to face their
greatest fear. That perhaps the enemy... is already in their
homes. As the clock counts down, it's a suspenseful race to
save not only their families, but the world. Before it's too
