Trivia

Harold Perrineau plays Detective Leo Banks, who wears a bullet proof vest wherever he goes due to being afraid that he will die at the age of 42. Perrineau was on the TV show LOST, in which there were 6 numbers that repeatedly appear in the show, one of which is the number 42. See more »

Goofs

The unmarked detective cars have red and blue emergency lights on the dashboard. (New York) State Law prohibits the use of blue lights on the front of any "official" emergency vehicles, including police cars. Blue is used by volunteer firefighters on their personal cars, and can be put on the REAR of police cars, but never on the front. See more »

Trying too hard to be wacky
21 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

NYPD Detective Casey Shraeger (Amber Tamblyn) is not so good at being hooker bait for the vice squad. Luckily she's pulled by Sergeant Harvey Brown (Terry Kinney) to beef up the depleted 2nd after a detective is murdered. She's assigned to detective Jason Walsh (Jeremy Renner) who just lost his partner. He owns a dinner but only opens it when he feels like it. Detective Leo Banks (Harold Perrineau) and Detective Eric Delahoy (Adam Goldberg) are another odd couple pairing.

This show tries really hard to be quirky. The voice-over with the dispatcher is just one of many, many weird touches to amp up the wacky. Renner even does a Bourne joke which is so odd looking back at it. This show could have worked if they didn't take 'the unusuals' so literally. It's just not wacky enough to be funny and all the craziness takes away the realism. This is a show that tries way way way too hard to be quirky.
