The new crime series Unforgettable is based on a short story, and while I haven’t read it, I bet it’s a good one. A person whose memory stores everything can use it to unravel crime, but cannot unravel the mystery from her own past.

Problem is, a short story doesn’t necessarily equate to a good series. What we end up with is “detective with special trick solves crimes while unraveling the dark mystery from her own past”. So basically, it’s The Mentalist without the fun. The Mentalist isn’t that great with the fun. This just felt like pointless gimmicky downness. Not for me.
