    Darned. I thought it was good and had lots of potential. Also a great cast.

    I had all of them archived on the DVR, finally watched the first episode about 3 weeks ago, didn't care for it too much, and then this week started to run out of room so I deleted the whole folder. Finally, I feel good about not investing myself in a show that wasn't picked up .... (See: Eli Stone, Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money, Terminator:SCC ... I could go on.)

    Hmmmm... I seem to remember predicting this when this show came in to replace Life on Mars.

    I starting watching it and Southland. I chose Southland over The Unusuals.

    We liked The Unusuals. Wasn't yet quite as enjoyable as Life or Life on Mars, but I thought it had potential. Too bad, because I definitely would have recorded it along with CSI:NY next year in that time slot, now that Leno will be replacing L&O at 10. /steve

    We killed our "Life on Mars" timer after three or four episodes ... never could get into premise, and Gretchen looked misplaced in her own time. We started watching "The Unusuals" and immediately loved it. We'll be so sad to kill that timer. Way to go, ABC.:nono2:

    I have 2 or 3 waiting to be watched, and am also running short on space on that particular DVR (one of the few I haven't put a bigger drive in), so I'll probably delete the rest as well.

    I was recording Southland and The Unusuals - really like Southland. I found The Unusuals to be ok to watch if there wasn't anything else available, but it didn't really have a strong hook for me. I'll finish out the run, but with every character having a "quirk" the show just didn't seem to know what to focus on - like they couldn't decide whether they were trying to make a more serious verision of Reno 911 or a dumbed down version of Barny Miller.

    That may be the very reason we like it. It's both funny and irreverent without resorting to slapstick.
