TV show description:
Detective Casey Shraeger (Amber Tamblyn) starts her day as an undercover hooker working for the NYPD vice department but is suddenly and unexpectedly transferred to the division’s homicide unit. The young officer finds herself thrust into a crazy world that’s full of dark humor, bodies, and bullets. Casey’s immediately partnered with Detective Jason Walsh (Jeremy Renner). Their first assignment together isn’t any easy one — find the killer of Walsh’s former partner.

As the pair seeks out the cop killer, Casey begins to realize that the force is full of secrets and that’s just fine considering she has a few of her own. It’s also a place where it helps to have a twisted sense of humor, since every day could be your last.

Partners Eric Delahoy (Adam Goldberg) and Leo Banks (Harold Perrineau) are polar opposites. Delahoy has a serious deathwish while Banks is so cautious that he refuses to remove his bulletproof vest.

Detective Eddie Alvarez (Kai Lennox) is a practical joke-playing social climber who has no problem stealing cases if they’ll get him some front-page coverage in the papers.

Meanwhile, Detective Henry Cole (Josh Close) is a religious guy who’s trying to keep his secret past from both his streetwise partner, Allison Beaumont (Monique Gabriela Curnen), and Sgt. Harvey Brown (Terry Kinney), who is struggling to rid the 2nd precinct of corruption.

    I just watched all episodes. I wish it could come back. What was I thinkining in 2009, I wish I would have known about it to support it. I like it.

    I checked this show out and I was sold in 1 and a half episodes. Great cast and cameos full of TV and Movie’s greatest hidden treasures…and Jeremy Renner, of course. This show needs a comeback more than Family Guy did. I would buy this by the season for sure!!

    I just had the good fortune to watch 9 episodes of the unusuals. I think it was very creative and well done. every actor fit their part perfect. what a shame it was cancelled.

    I agree with Julia just got a copy of it two days ago and have watched the whole thing. Thought Julie summed up the whole show up very well, so I won’t repeat it.

    I’m sure bringing it back will not be possible, but just wanted someone to know how much I enjoyed it. Sure would like to know what happened to all the characters. Oops, maybe I got just a little too involved.

    Anyway, thanks for at least one year.

    BRING BACK THE SHOW. I discovered the Unusuals only two days ago since I have not had TV/cable for 5 years and typically do not watch any criminal series. But this show was great – funny, smart, with good acting, nothing cheesy. I do not understand why the show did not make at least another season.
