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.

Annoying main character
5 May 2014 | by Louisejohnson669See all my reviews

Difficult scoring as the program is excellent, I really enjoy the idea of it but the main character is the most annoying person I have ever seen! Her memory skills are amazing and makes for good twists in the story however her attitude and the way she is always right and dismisses people is unbelievable, rude and quite frankly unrealistic. The writers have tried to give her some faults (gambling and being a maverick) to make her more human but fail miserably.

Even with her memory she wouldn't be right this often and why should having a flawless memory mean you can do whatever you want without consequence?

The concept would get a 10 but the main character would get a 2 (and that's generous)in the scoring.
