The only show I’ve made a point of watching week-to-week outside of Lost of late was The Unusuals, a mid-season replacement cop show with great cast dynamics, interesting characters, playful dialogue and unusual storylines. Tonight’s episode, apparently, will be its last, as I guess it’s not made as big an impact on others as it did for me. But I’ll always remember this show for it’s “moustached brotherhood” episode. I think cancellation was incredibly premature, given that two of its ensemble, Amber Tamblyn and Jeremy Renner are both in prominent films later this summer (Peter Hyam’s Beyond A Reasonable Doubt, and Kathryn Bigelows buzz-worthy The Hurt Locker, respectively) which could’ve helped bring more of an audience to the show.
I’m most disappointed that I’m not going to find out about how Eric Delahoy’s (Adam Goldberg) brain tumor turns out, or for that matter, whether Leo (Harold Perrineau) makes it to 43, or the deal with Sergeant Brown’s astronaut past or… And I’m going to miss you most of all, Eddie Alvarez. Another in the long line of awesome cancelled shows with unresolved storylines. Any chance of a rescue HBO? Showtime? FX? Dang.
