Storyline

With the exception of vampires, every monster from folklore and mythology is a missing link between apes and humans, and they all seem to love Chicago. To combat the threat, Chicago PD formed Special Unit 2, known to the rest of the department as a deep-cover plainclothes unit they should steer clear of, to hunt them down and eliminate them. Officer Kate Benson, who has always been seeing things out of the corner of her eye since childhood, gets recruited into the unit when she discovers people are being kidnapped by real-life gargoyles for food and is paired up with trigger-happy Nicholas O'Malley.

Still Watching It
5 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I started watching SU2 on the first night it aired..saw all 19 episodes...recently bought it on DVD from Ebay. great show..as the other commenter said, there was great chemistry between the two stars..unfortunate we never saw them get together..Carl the Gnome was hilarious and so was Jonathan Togo. we're lucky it ran for a second season. hope they (officially) come out with it on DVD. great monsters and special effects, the plots were strong and believable. love this show. too bad i haven't seen Alexondra Lee or Michael Landes in anything recently. email me at lastlime@gmail.com if you have questions.
