The last thing TV needs is another overwrought police procedural. Fortunately, ABC's The Unusuals lives up to its name: Nothing is ordinary in the NYPD's 2nd Precinct. Detective Banks (Harold Perrineau) is so sure his days are numbered that he wears bulletproof pants. His partner, Detective Delahoy (Adam Goldberg), has a death wish but just can't manage to get hit by a stray bullet or subway train. And Detective Schraeger (Amber Tamblyn) is a vice-squad transfer trying to keep her Park Avenue upbringing under wraps. While this is not another Law & Order, it isn't Police Academy either—instead, think Hill Street Blues redux. The quirky characters, the sight gags, and the radio calls for suspects wearing only capes make the dramatic plot twists—the homicides, swat busts, and even missing-cat cases—all the more potent.
