UNSUB was federal CSI before CSI
16 October 2014 | by scrapbuddy2-1See all my reviews

My husband and I still remember watching every one of the few episodes this series had which were very cerebral but fascinating.

Years later we have still to find one that is as focused as this. CSI has a lot of the forensics (which is much more advanced these days)

Criminal minds has a lot of the victimology they used, but I never understood why this didn't take off.

Guess TV series had to wait for people's fascination with technology to spark the craze.

I would like to see this show again, maybe will come to Amazon Prime someday, I think it will look like the original Star Trek does now-- very limited in up to date usage of computers, labs, the use of the internet and ability to track things on a more national level with national databases
