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.

Trivia

In the unaired pilot episode, Captain Richard Page was named Captain William T. Page, but played by the same actor, Richard Gant. See more »

Goofs

The Chicago Police Uniforms in the show are perfect except for the Left Shoulder Patches, which 'should' read Chicago Police, but instead are a fictional patch that reads 'Police Department of the City of Chicago'. This is common when any show films in Chicago (even when most of the filming is done in Canada). Chicago has a rule that no representation of their real Police Patch can be shown without express permission from the city. Since most movie productions don't want to hassle having a bureaucrat 'approving' all of their scripts, most depictions of the "Chicago Police Department" have bogus patches versus the real thing. Thus this is an intentional "mistake" but one that sharp eyed viewers will pick up. See more »

What were they thinking?
6 February 2003 | by (BROOKLYN, NEW YORK) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best shows on the air. It had a talented and likable cast. Snappy and hilarious humor abounded on this show. I even adored the camera work. I loved the shots going from the street, thru the back of the dry cleaners and down the stairs to the units secret headquarters. You saw those shots more often during the shows original short term run when Sean Whalen played resident historian on the show. I have been a fan of that hottie Michael Landes since his days as "Jimmie the photographer" on Lois and Clark the New Adventures of Superman. I was so happy to see him on this show. He can act, he's got great comic timing and he's got the wise-cracking, smart-aleck persona down-pat. Although he had great chemistry with the curvy, tough yet vulnerable "Kate", he seemed to have even more so with Carl the gnome. I loved watching them share screen time. In my opinion there was no better episode than the premiere. You have to see it to truly appreciate what they were trying to do with this series. Of course UPN being UPN canceled this show. What were they thinking? Probably the same thing they were thinking when they canceled NOWHERE MAN, one of the best and most mysterious shows EVER. They replaced that show with "Homeboys in Outerspace". I can't even put my outrage into words. UPN makes some really crap--- choices. Anyway I hope to one day be able to either tape these shows off of cable or buy their collections. GREAT STUFF!!! Feel free to write to me.
