    I can't believe that ABC replaced Life on Mars, a brilliant and witty show, with The Unusuals. Shame on you ABC!

    Just like some of the critics said, nothing new, nothing interesting. Just a complete mess with a few good actors but it doesn't save the show. Some of the actors aren't believable in their roles, especially Amber. All in all, another unoriginal show that probably won't even last its first season.

  1. The oddball overload bugs at first, but the incredibly likable cast makes The Unusuals unusually promising.
  2. That's a lot of eccentricity, but creator/writer Noah Hawley meshes humor and pathos with deft plotting and dialogue.

    Look a little closer, though, and what you'll find is a truly strange cop dramedy with lots of sharp dialogue, jocular banter and offbeat scenarios.
