When the scientist who helped Carrie understand her memory abilities is murdered, she must track down other people with the same skill in the hopes that one of them holds the key to finding the killer.
The murder of an urban explorer leads Carrie and Al to not only search for the killer, but to pick up the trail of clues the victim was following on the hunt for a treasure supposedly hidden under the streets of New York.
Carrie catches a deadly assassin who has eluded her before, but must put her personal vendetta aside when it's revealed that the woman has vital information to prevent a terrorist attack on New York City.
Eliot agrees to let Carrie and Al use his Hamptons beach house in exchange for their help with a local murder investigation, but uncovering the secrets of the tight-knit community prove to be a challenge.
The second season was a bit of a surprise to me because it changed locales, and most of its personnel, from Brooklyn's police force to a special investigatory force in Manhattan. I miss a few of the characters from the first season. Still, with Carrie's special memory, it's understandable that she, and her partner Al, would move up the ladder.
The episodes provide plenty of action, on a larger scale than just "murder of the week," which is to be expected with the "special investigations" focus of Carrie and Al.
I have finished Season 3 as well, and enjoyed it. I'm glad to hear that Season 4 will be starting on A&E at the end of November.
Carrie and Al are an unusual mix and work so well together in the excellent series. This is one of the few TV series that I do not want to miss! The series does not center in on the violence and gruesomeness but rather on the solving of the cases - this makes it much more interesting and pleasurable to watch. I highly recommend you watch Unforgettable: you will probably be hooked after just one episode!
It would be nice to have increased memory but to remember everything, I think not. Poppy does an excellent job in portraying Carrie Wells. I can understand to some degree as to why they changed their local from Queens to Major Crimes. It allows the writes to open up the area in which they can work. However, the cast of Season 1 was excellent and I took a positive interest in their stories. I would like to see them worked into Season 3, if there is a Season 3. The primary players in Season 2 are also a good group but there has not been sufficient epos ides to really get to know them. I would recommend seeing the first episode and believe the percentage is high that you will become a permanent viewer.
Unforgettable is my favorite show. Carrie's memory abilities are fascinating to me on an intellectual level, I enjoy crime solving shows anyway, and it's a show I can show to my children. All plusses in my book. I will say that I liked season 1 better than season 2, simply because I found season 1 to be believable and sometimes I question things about season 2. For example, sometimes Carrie's boss lets something she's done slide when she probably would get in trouble for her action in real life. However that doesn't dampen my enthusiasm for the show.
I always love drama's and this one is very entertaining. The second season was good a slight change in the cast from a basic detectives in a precinct to a select group in a major crimes unit. It is based in NYC and they all work very well together. I like this part of a police drama better the team seems to have no hidden agenda or someone behind the scenes working to plague the entire unit or undermine the rest of the team. As I said the show is very good a slight change from last year but well worth watching.
Just another take on a good detective show with people much too good looking to be real, but isn't that what Hollywood is all about? I personally find Poppy Montgomery very attractive, a decent actress and I'd watch almost anything with her in it. I think she has one of the best smiles in all of Hollywood.
I love this show, it has quirky actors that play their characters so believably, especially Poppy Montgomery who plays Kerrie with hypermnesia - remembers everything she has ever seen! She gives her character real attitude - "Don't try to tell me what to do as I'll do what I think is right!" and she usually is - right that is! I really like the way her hypermnesia is displayed by replaying what she saw (and you saw) previously as she reruns what she saw, but with her current time self following her remembered self through what was seen, but the details now having a new meaning - Brilliant!
So good and exciting, I hadn't been able to watch all the episodes of season two. Now I can, just waiting for the other seasons to go down in price....interesting series and it's based on a real person, amazing!
