    Not creative, just another boring show. Should have kept Life on Mars.

  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.
