Quotes

[voice-over at the beginning of each episode]
Carrie Wells: I'm Carrie Wells. Only a few people in the world have the ability to remember everything. I'm one of them. Pick any day of my life, and I can tell you what I saw or heard. Faces, conversations, clues - which comes in handy when you're a cop. If I miss something the first time, it's okay - I can go back and look again. My life is unforgettable.

I finally figured it out
6 April 2021 | by Top_Dawg_CriticSee all my reviews

Something about this show had an annoying tic, and I couldn't put my finger on it. Well, I finally figured it out. Think; you just changed your babies diaper, and all of a sudden you hear a giggle, then they get all serious, stare into space, and do a little pucker thing with their lips. They are peeing! THAT is the look the beautiful Poppy Montgomery makes when she's remembering a detail. And I just can't get past that. It's a decent idea/concept, but going up against the likes of The Mentalist, this starts to look like a comedy. Great performances, decent directing, but there's nothing new and different in the stories of similar shows. Then add that look... I can't watch this show any more. It's a generous 5/10 from me.
