If you know me at all, you know I’m a big fan of detective shows. I love (almost) all drama related to crime, forensics, etc. Anytime there’s a new show in this genre on the air, I’m in. Some (ahem, Charlie’s Angels) don’t quite make the cut but I’m usually willing to give ’em all a try. With so many shows in this genre, it’s tough to keep up with them all and occasionally a great one slips through the cracks.
Enter: HULU Recommendations! THE UNUSUALS popped up in my recommendations; with an empty queue and some time to kill I tuned in for the Pilot episode. The ensemble cast includes Jeremy Renner and Amber Tamlyn and originally aired on ABC in 2009. Here’s the Hulu description: “Like a modern-day M*A*S*H, The Unusuals explores both the serious drama and comic insanity of New York City police detectives.”
I love this show! The 10 episodes that were filmed before the show was canceled are available online. Highly recommended.
