TV Review: Conspiracy 365, “January”

Based on the books of the same name by Australian author Gabrielle Lord and aired monthly FMC our delightful protagonist is fifteen year old Cal Ormond (Harrison Gilbertson) who is having a really bad week.His Dad dies a horrible crippling death unable to speak after a virus attacks him on vacation to Ireland to research the Ormond family history.

Cal’s father draws pictures for him but what is he trying to say?

At the funeral a crazy pyjama clad man runs to Cal warning him of the ‘Ormond Singularity’ and that if he doesn’t solve the puzzle he will be dead in 365 days just like ‘all the others’.  What does he mean? Cal is confused and super bestie Bogues (Taylor Glocker) is concerned that Cal’s going a bit nuts. Is he?

When two balaclava wearing goons break into Cal’s house and shoot his Uncle Rafe (David Whiteley) (his father’s twin, which I’m sure will mean something later) and his little sister Gabby. Rafe survives but things are looking grim for young Gabby as she slips into a coma. Things turn from bad to worse when the police begin to believe that lovely Cal is responsible.

Cal’s journey on the run begins.  He’s evading arrest and has set out a mission to find what the ‘Ormond singularity’ actually is and to prove his innocence in his families shooting. It gets mighty complicated as the two main antagonists are introduced: Vulcan Sligo (Rob Carlton) and Oriana De Force (Julia Zemiro) they know what the ‘singularity’ is and they want Cal to find it for them.

A death sentence, a dead dad, two evil villains with terrible names on his tail and the cops at every corner. Where can Cal turn and can he find the answers before he crokes it? The media has labeled him a ‘Psycho killer’ and with his face on every billboard in town Cal’s wild ride is just beginning as he and Bogues attempt to fight all the baddies and win.

Conspiracy 365 is a Circa Media Production and airs January 14th on FMC. Check out all the episode reviews here.
