How is it a fantastic show like "Unforgettable", that improves everyweek with wonderful character development, and a superb lead actress(Poppy Montgomery as Carrie Wells) fails to stimulate the US viewer?Yet ridiculous shows like "Amazing Race" or "Survivor" drone on yearafter year. I just don't get it.Oh, wait... I *do* get it. Most viewers are not interested in any showthat demands a bit of thinking. Hence the disappearance of such gems as"Life", "Dollhouse", "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip", just to name afew.This imaginative show is quite reminiscent of "Monk", with a leadcharacter who has a special ability - "a gift AND a curse" - and a castof supporting characters who have to figure out their roles.Dive in to this delicious soufflÃ© - you'll love it!

The other reviews criticizing her total recall, but yet taking time torecall something relevant to the case are bogus. She obviously needs tobe stimulated or have some pertinence to recall the memory. The factthat she should not see herself in the memories maybe valid but a sorryreason to dismiss the show. If someone has a special gift, who is tosay exactly how this gift works. I enjoy trying to figure out the casesand stimulating my mind versus watching mindless reality television. Itis 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 onlypart that I do not like about this show and many of the new shows isthe darkness used in shooting scenes. I do not understand the need forso much darkness and on the new televisions you can hardly see the darkscenes.The show is very refreshing change to reality television.

The premise of the show is a good one, and I feel that by making just afew changes in the main characters, I would look forward to watching! Acouple of reviewers hit the nail on the head. There is so little tolike about Carrie, and so little to respect in her boss. I feel sorryfor the more serious characters, plodding along, doing their jobs, andreceiving no recognition on the show. Now I'll be petty...why doesCarrie dress like an 18 year old, who shops at Discovery and dots (evenher "formal wear")?I guess I was hoping to find a replacement for Prime Suspect., whichwas an awesome and much more realistic show.

This is a great show mainly because of Poppy Montgomery. I loved herearlier show, "Without a Trace", and found her to be an interestingactress with a very expressive and sensitive face which displays manyemotions. She is also very soft spoken,not shrill, which is a greatchange from so many women police in the shows today. It's a good showand Poppy makes it a good show!! I'm not so sure I like the red hairthough, I think I preferred the blonde which she was for "Without aTrace"! Keep the show. I'm sure the stories will get better; andPoppy's character will grow and grow with her abilities and mannerisms.This is a winner!!

Well, because of the positive reviews for this show, I decided to giveit more of a chance and watched a few more episodes - BIG MISTAKE!!! Itis absolutely torture to watch! Anyone that has anything good to sayabout this MUST be connected to it somehow and have a vested interestin it doing good. CBS - do not look at any positive reviews of thisshow, it is really, really bad and you probably should replace it -even with reruns of a show that was fairly interesting. This thing isjust BAD, BAD, BAD! The writing, the acting, the way it's put together,EVERYTHING!!!!Everything about it was horrible. The first 5 minutes the actors put onthe worst New York accents and inflections ever on screen - then theaccents and bad New Yorker mannerisms were completely gone for the restof the show. Matter of fact, the female lead is bad at doing just abasic American accent much less a particular New York accent. The wholeshtick of the show of her never forgetting anything is so lame anduseless. The story line of the episode was about the most boring withthe utmost weakly written script I have ever seen on a cop show. Heldno interest at all!! There is nothing appealing or interesting aboutany character and only mediocre acting done by anyone in the cast. Yougotta be kidding me - DO NOT watch, is waste of an hour that you'llwant back.
LoveMyTwoFerrets (10 May 2013)
I totally love everything about this show ... the concept is fantasticand actually believable! All of the actors are superb, particularlyPoppy Montgomery, Michael Gaston and Dylan Walsh! Also, the skepticismshown by team members Kevin Rankin and Daya Vaidya are absolutelyperfect! In a lot of ways, Carrie is the female version of Patrick Jane from TheMentalist. I love the strength and vulnerability displayed by Carrieand Patrick Jane. Jane's wife and child were murdered by Red John andPatrick feels responsible because he taunted Red John on television.With Carrie, the murder of her big sister, Rachel, when they werechildren, was a traumatic event that is compounded by the fact thatCarrie she can't remember specific details of Rachel's murder and itremains unsolved. It haunts Carrie as an adult because it's the ONLYthing in her entire life that she CAN'T remember! Carrie's childhoodexperiences with cops and shrinks investigating Rachel's murder, makeher a better cop as she is more aware of the trauma being experiencedby both victims and witnesses alike. Good writing, good acting and good time slot are all high praise toCBS! I just hope they will give Unforgettable a fair chance to developa strong following. Having Poppy Montgomery with her Criminal Minds fanbase and Michael Gaston with his Mentalist fan base are an added bonusfor the show. Having the show follow solid shows like NCIS and NCIS: LAmake Unforgettable's ratings almost a guarantee. Thanks, CBS! Tuesday night totally belongs to you!

Do you know those shows that just keep getting better? The more youwatch, the more you can't stop watching. Poppy's acting skills arebreathtaking, and it's so believable, really. By reading the synopsis,you might think this show is some clichÃ© where the main characterremembers everything and is some kind of superhero. No. People like herdo exist in this world, and that's what makes it amazing. Thecharacters are amazing, well-thought and well-played by the actors. Theteamwork displayed throughout the series is really amazing and the waythey get to amazing conclusions simply by discussing their points ofview and discoveries is fantastic and believable, and their thoughtsare easy to follow. All in all, this is an amazing show and you'remissing out if you haven't watched it yet. WARNING: Ridiculouslyaddictive.

When I read about the show I built some expectations. Unfortunately,they weren't met by far. I went through two episodes, trying tounderstand the means this show is supposed to draw attention andprovide amusement of any kind, then I finally gave up.The concept is interesting, but its potential was wasted. The plot islazy and boring - basically you have to watch like 90% of developmentwhich has only one purpose to kill some time. When 'the magic' breaksthe case it's too late. The damage was done.I do not want to discourage anyone. Watch it and see it for yourself.Maybe what I couldn't get or use will work for you.
Jason Evans (05 May 2013)
This programme works off a premise that seems to be plucked from aCatherine Tate sketch. I don't recall the protagonist's name - so Ishall call her Memory Lady. As a child, Memory Lady was bitten by aradioactive elephant and consequently gained the power to never forgetanything. Ever. Well, apart from her sister's murder (something whichslightly undermines her superpower). Anyways, after being rejected bythe X-Men for having the naffest superpower ever, Memory Lady hasdecided to join the New York police where she uses her magicmind-powers to fight crime.Of course, some might think it's a bit of a flaw to have a cop-show inwhich the police have a super-powered advantage over the criminals:after all, Law and Order SVU wouldn't work quite so well if Benson andStabler could shoot fireballs and read minds. This is why - like allsuperheroes - Memory Lady has been given a weakness: whilst she's verygood at remembering things, she's not very good at noticing stuff. Thefirst time I saw Memory Lady in action, she received a phone-call froma serial killer informing her that he would be claiming another victimin fifteen minutes time. After the call ends, Memory Lady and hersidekicks spend around two minutes fretting over how on Earth they aregoing to locate him before Memory Lady remembers that she is good atremembering stuff. She remembers back to the phone call, and recallshearing a train-station announcement in the background: "He's in atrain station!" she exclaims excitedly. Now, if Memory Lady had had thesense to be paying attention during the phone call, then she could haveimparted this information two minutes earlier - quite a time-advantageseeing as they only had fifteen minutes until the next murder.This weakness reveals itself again at the climax of the episode: whilstin a showdown with the suspected killer on a ferry, Memory Ladyneglects to notice the clues dotted around the boat that hint to hisidentity and show the he knows she's there. Memory Lady manages torecall seeing these notes a mere five hours after the event.I don't know whether this show is going to go on to better-develop thepremise, but in the episode that I saw it was utterly irrelevant. Itwouldn't take a mega-memory to hear the background noise in a telephoneconversation, or spot a note containing your name in giant letters thatis right in front of your face. Still, despite this, it was actuallyquite watchable - and the ludicrous idea behind it sort of gives it acampy charm.

I actually really really loved the concept of this show and am a hugefan of Poppy -- she is perfect for the part. I like how she has thisout of body experience (which it really isn't). It just shows you howshe puts her theory together by using her fantastic flawless memory - Iwill continue watching this show - CBS needs to give this show a chancebc its totally different from any other detective series. I also likeher backstory about her sister Rachael - it shows how vulnerableCarrie's character is and why she is not anxious becoming a detectiveagain. But, w/her abilities of course she would help out a lot. I alsolike the whole cast, Dylan Walsh is perfect as her ex boyfriend/partner-- ppl need to give this show a chance and not give up so easily, bc itwill progress and become even more interesting.
Sharon Krawczyk (04 May 2013)
I decided to record this show because I liked Poppy Montgomery when shewas in Without a Trace. I wasn't sure how the concept of this showwould play out and if it would be interesting to watch, but I was notdisappointed. The pilot had me hooked right away. It was filled withsuspense and kept me interested through the whole episode. I couldn't wait to see the 2nd episode. I really enjoyed the 2ndepisode too and the twist that was added as far as characterdevelopment. This show has great potential and I hope it stays on the air andcontinues to be good. The chemistry between the two leads is verystrong. I can't wait to see more.
smitty-45 (03 May 2013)
The show does not feature an ensemble as in "Without a Trace." Poppy ison camera way too much. And when she's flashing back with herphotographic memory everything goes to slow-mo and let me tell you bythe end of the show you've seen that enough. With the exception of thelead, the characters are not developed and are uninteresting. We knowthat her love interest is still in love with her - but what the viewercan't shake is why? What's so great about her character that this greatguy thinks she so fabulous? She seems pretty boring to the viewer.Additionally, although the leads former love interest is a terrificactor - he has no chemistry with Poppy. I think that Poppy was offeredher own starring show and couldn't resist. Although a terrific actorPoppy doesn't really have a large enough array of acting tools orenough personal charisma to carry an entire show - in this pilot she'sexpected to. She has an air of indifference (especially toward men)that make her in a starring role - a let down in general. I would loveto see her back in an ensemble - but I won't watch this snoozer again.
nowego (30 April 2013)
I am a fan of The Listener so another show with similarities is fine byme, I am not sure what the other reviewers were watching but it couldnot have been the same show as I watched. The one I watched was quitegood and I really liked Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh. I can notrecall any other shows that Poppy Montgomery has been in but I likedDylan Walsh in one of my favourite movies, The Lake House.Poppy Montgomery plays a former Siracusa police detective named CarrieWells, who suffers from hyperthymesia, a rare medical condition thatgives her the ability to remember everything she sees and hears, only avery small number of people in the world have been documented assuffering from it. Her neighbour is murdered and as part of theinvestigation, her former boyfriend and one-time partner discovers sheis a witness and asks her to join his homicide unit to help solve thecase.By day she is a volunteer at a aged care facility and by night sheplays blackjack to support herself.During the show with repeated flashbacks we start to discover that hersister was murdered and that she is still trying to find out whomurdered her.I thought the pilot was quite good and not being from the USA I did notcare that the accents were not genuine as some of the other reviewershave complained about.I recommend it to anyone wanting to watch another police show with afew special abilities thrown in.I gave it an 8 and will continue to watch it until it is canceled likeso many other good shows these days.
Albertina-132-952021 (30 April 2013)
Great show people!!! if you read my review, just watch one show and youwill get hooked. Is an amazing police show different from all others .I love Poppy Mongomery I watched her in Without a trace and was veryhappy to find out she was going to be the main actress inUnforgettable.I like the chemistry between Carry and detective Al Burns. I hope wecan see more of that relationship soon. It is interesting how Carrieuses her ability to remember everything to solve crimes. The writing isgreat and the whole cast works great together.I hope that they renew this wonderful show as it is a refreshingdifference from all other police shows. CBS should keep the show andput some heat by taking advantage on the chemistry between Carry anddetective burns Lots of potential for this show Ireally hope to see asecond season.
Maryanthompson (28 April 2013)
I think Poppy Montgomery is a terrific actress and I have followed herthrough Without a Trace and in movies and now in Unforgettable. It's sogreat that she is still a "bankable head-liner" for a weekly series.Her personality is perfect for a drama and she comes across as abelievable character.I have just a couple of issues with this show/Poppy's portrayal of thischaracter. Why does she always wear tank top (undershirt) tops? What'swrong with sleeves?Why does she have such RED hair? Unless it's her natural colour, it istoo red!Why does she always have sad eyes? She can make a normal face, butseems to always have close-ups showing her with the saddestexpressions! Minor complaints only. I watch the show even though these issues getannoying after a while. Long live Poppy Montgomery!
meileen1942 (27 April 2013)
I really liked something a little different than the usualpolice/medical examiner shows. This added quirk could just make it muchmore enjoyable. It seems well-cast and just needs time to develop thepremise and the cast into a good show. At least give it more than oneepisode before pounding it to death. I find that most of the situationcomedies given to us to watch (such as Two and a half Men) are muchmore inane and unwatchable, some after a number of seasons. I thinkmost of the posts on this new show are like critics have always been:unable to give a show a season to prove itself. It takes a bit to grow,like most things. I do admit that having the lady appear in her ownflashbacks is a little odd, but perhaps in the future they could handleit like they handle the flashbacks of Gibbs in NCIS; sort of make thema little fuzzy around the edges so you would know what they are. But Ithink Poppy is worth at least giving a chance to see how she is goingto handle things. Hope they find a few happy things to put into herlife. She had a lot of heaviness in Without A Trace. She needs to finda little more joy in this character. (Writers.....listen up!)
raisleygordon (27 April 2013)
Because this is such an interesting premise (a woman uses her memory asa means to solve crimes), I decided to at least watch the pilot.Unfortunately, here is a show that doesn't translate from paper to TVscreen. Somehow, the characters and story just never gel. PoppyMontgomery doesn't bring any of her acting talent from "Without aTrace" with her. But then again, that was just a role played oppositeother actors. Unforgettable is inaptly titled: there's nothing hereworth remembering, or to make me want to watch a second episode. I'd besurprised if this lasted even a full season.3 out of 10
HDbahn (26 April 2013)
I might have been able to enjoy this show except for an obvious flaw inthe depiction of the main character's memories. Several scenes wereshot in flashback accompanied by her "third person" body looking at thescene from a non-existent perspective. You can't see yourself inmemories, or anything else from outside your body. I guess thisdirector was last in class and trying to follow the gimmicks of WithoutA Trace (disappearance fades) and Cold Case (flashback wipes). Thissort of reminds me of how stupid I thought Ghost Whisperer was when youhad to sit through a ghost talking to Melinda, and then Melindarepeating the tale to a third party. That's not an analogy for thisdirecting gaffe, just an observation of how to annoy viewers!
Alexander Krondiras (25 April 2013)
...there are some mistakes which I cannot ignore. The way she thinksback to use her flawless memory is one. How can you have an out of body3 dimensional experience when all you could see where things in frontof you? They should just stuck to the POV (point of view) recollectionof hers rather than Carrie seeing herself from the side as if she'swatching the show. Also I'm on the 4th episode now and a character whowas involved in the case in the 3rd episode just walked in and Carrieis asking who he is! Anyway I do like the characters, the police part of it as well as howshe deals with her "gift" like people did in the first season ofHeroes: Her normal life is heavily impacted no matter how much of ahelp she is as a detective or a witness to crime scenes.Sack the person in charge of continuity and make sure things are notover-simplified (the lack of POV view etc) just so it can appeal topeople with a lower IQ :P
gareth-91 (24 April 2013)
Have just seen episode 2 here in the UK. I enjoyed this, a gutsy womantrusts in herself. I can see it's quite new as the actors aren'tsettled into the characters yet. But it's also someone who has had atrauma, so she's been there. Worth a lot more than all sorts of paperqualifications. There will have to be other things introduced into it,or just the memory thing could get a bit boring. But I find what's moreinteresting than the total visual recall thing is her attitude of ,'Iplay by my rules", this girl is not going to kiss ass. Whew, what arelief. So, if there could be some more nice complex plots that slowlylet us get to know Carrie and the other characters that would be great.I love in Bones how it took so long for people to get to know eachother - it felt real.
Review total: 20, showing from 1 to 20
