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.

    Unbelievable – TV networks are clueless when it comes to keeping good shows on the air. I guess they think we are a bunch of airheads that want to watch Big Brother and nanny reality shows instead of listening to snappy and witty dialogue!
    They never even gave it a chance!

    The Unusuals cannot be gone forever … I looked forward to that show every week … I still had questions about most of the characters’ backgrounds and what made them tick … PUT IT BACK ON THE AIR ! ! !

    it takes more than 6 episodes to build characters and an involved story line.

    I really liked this show but if it is not reality crap the show won’t last. Wish ABC was different but what a shock it is like all the other networks, it doesn’t know a good show when they get it.

    Why is it when out of the clear blue, a great TV series rises up above the majority of the crap that’s out there, with great characters, great story lines, best “real” photography since NYPD Blue – – and you cancel it! There can’t be too much intelligence in the decision-making crownd to do something as short-sighted as this. It is way too good to be cancelled. Please keep running it.

    Please don’t cancel this show. It is well acted and the characters are just now flushing our their personalities. Nobody wants to watch Jay Leno every nite @ 9.

    Don’t cancel the show. You need to give it a little more time. You put it in the time slot of an already failing show with barely an advertising and expect people to be aware that a new show was there. Most people probably didn’t even have the time to re-program the Tivo’s and DVR’s. Come on “GIVE IT ANOTHER CHANCE”. This cast is awesome.

    I’m so sick of these trailer park reality shows at are on all over the airways.

    Please, please, pleeaassee don’t cancel this show! I absolutely love these charachers. What will happen with Delahoy’s brain tumor? Will Banks ever feel safe? Will Alvarex get the stick out of his ass? OMG –Walsh & Casey are great as partners (love that Jeremy Renner)….Come on you tv execs….get a grip! You finally succeed in uniting the real and the surreal, the quirky and mundane–and you’re cancelling it??? Dumb, dumb,dumb!

    Great show. I’ve never watched so much TV. The Unusuals and Cupid have kept us going for the last little while. Now we find out they are going to be canceled. Boo, hiss. Why should I watch any new shows if they are just going to get canceled too. I want my Unusuals!
