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.

I LOVE IT!!
29 July 2003 | by (Wells, MI) – See all my reviews

I loved this show! I would watch every episode, it was so GOOD! And the characters were great together. I like Carl the Nome, he was always funny and getting into something. It's to bad they canceled the show, I thought it was a great hit, and I miss. One of the many shows I watched and really liked, and by fact i don't watch TV much, because most all of it sucks. Everything is the same, but this show was different. I really really liked it. I give it a perfect 10.
