Unforgettable is a crime drama television series that aired on CBS from 2011 to 2016. The show revolves around the story of Carrie Wells, a former Syracuse detective who suffers from hyperthymesia, a rare medical condition that allows her to recall every detail of her life. Poppy Montgomery plays the lead role of Carrie Wells, and the rest of the cast includes Dylan Walsh, Jane Curtin, Kevin Rankin, Michael Gaston, Daya Vaidya, James Hiroyuki Liao, Dallas Roberts, Tawny Cypress, La La Anthony, E.J. Bonilla, Kathy Najimy, Deanna Dunagan, Britt Lower, Omar Metwally.

The show's first season begins with Carrie Wells living a quiet life as a nursing home employee in Queens, New York City. However, her life takes a 180-degree turn when her former partner and ex-boyfriend, Al Burns (played by Dylan Walsh), approaches her to help solve a murder case. Carrie reluctantly agrees and is soon back in the fold, using her gift of hyperthymesia to help Al and his team solve some of the most complex cases in New York City.

The show's formula is straightforward and follows a traditional crime procedural structure. Each episode features a new case that the team must solve, and Carrie's unique talent for remembering every detail of her life often leads to a breakthrough in each investigation. The show's writers manage to keep the cases fresh by adding new twists and turns to the storyline, making it a must-watch for crime drama enthusiasts.

Along with the crime-solving aspect, the show also delves into the personal lives of the characters, making it an engaging watch. Carrie's backstory is explored in depth, giving the audience a glimpse into her past and her struggles with coming to terms with her gift. Her relationship with Al Burns is also explored throughout the series, with their history and feelings for each other always lingering in the background.

Moreover, the supporting cast is brilliant in their respective roles, adding depth and nuance to the show. Jane Curtin plays Dr. Joanne Webster, a medical examiner who works alongside the team, and her wit and sarcasm often provide a light-hearted touch to the otherwise grim proceedings. Kevin Rankin plays Detective Roe Saunders, the team's resident tech-whiz, and his quick thinking and technical expertise often save the day. Michael Gaston plays Mike Costello, Al's boss, and his nuanced portrayal of a tough but fair leader is impressive.

Daya Vaidya and James Hiroyuki Liao play Detectives Nina Inara and Jay Lee, respectively, and they both bring their unique skill sets to the team. Dallas Roberts plays Eliot Delson, Carrie's neighbor and a writer who usually ends up embroiled in the team's cases. Tawny Cypress and La La Anthony play Cherie Rollins-Murray and Delina Michaels, respectively, and their roles add a new dimension to the show.

The show's production values are top-notch, and the cinematography effectively captures the grit and grime of New York City. The show's theme music, composed by Michael Wandmacher, is catchy and complements the tone of the series perfectly.

Overall, Unforgettable is a well-crafted crime drama that keeps the audience engaged with its compelling storylines and strong character development. The show's unique spin on the traditional cop procedural format, along with the standout performances of the cast, make it a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Unforgettable is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (61 episodes). The series first aired on September 20, 2011.
