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.

Refreshing change to reality TV
2 November 2011 | by patreicheSee all my reviews

The other reviews criticizing her total recall, but yet taking time to recall something relevant to the case are bogus. She obviously needs to be stimulated or have some pertinence to recall the memory. The fact that she should not see herself in the memories maybe valid but a sorry reason to dismiss the show. If someone has a special gift, who is to say exactly how this gift works. I enjoy trying to figure out the cases and stimulating my mind versus watching mindless reality television. It is not the best new show out there but it is definitely worth watching. I would compare it to Monk which an extremely popular show. The only part that I do not like about this show and many of the new shows is the darkness used in shooting scenes. I do not understand the need for so much darkness and on the new televisions you can hardly see the dark scenes.

The show is very refreshing change to reality television.
