Quotes

[voice-over at the beginning of each episode]
Carrie Wells: I'm Carrie Wells. Only a few people in the world have the ability to remember everything. I'm one of them. Pick any day of my life, and I can tell you what I saw or heard. Faces, conversations, clues - which comes in handy when you're a cop. If I miss something the first time, it's okay - I can go back and look again. My life is unforgettable.

What's Wrong with You People???
13 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How is it a fantastic show like "Unforgettable", that improves every week with wonderful character development, and a superb lead actress (Poppy Montgomery as Carrie Wells) fails to stimulate the US viewer? Yet ridiculous shows like "Amazing Race" or "Survivor" drone on year after year. I just don't get it.

Oh, wait... I *do* get it. Most viewers are not interested in any show that demands a bit of thinking. Hence the disappearance of such gems as "Life", "Dollhouse", "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip", just to name a few.

This imaginative show is quite reminiscent of "Monk", with a lead character who has a special ability - "a gift AND a curse" - and a cast of supporting characters who have to figure out their roles.

Dive in to this delicious soufflé - you'll love it!
