Agreed. Shame that Frakes hasn't gotten more big budget Hollywood work in his career. (I recall a rumor back in the early 2000s that he was in the running to direct the new Superman movie. That would have been cool.)
The interesting one -- he was attached to the Total Recall
sequel in the mid-90s, when it was going to be an adaptation of "Minority Report" but set on Mars.
From what I understand, he's content to be television director. He works steadily, he's always in demand, and he has his pick of series.
On a Who
note, I was surprised that he didn't direct an episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day
. So much of that production seemed like an effort to get as many American genre actors and icons on board as possible, and Frakes would have made sense behind the camera.
