    Does anyone know the name or the artist of the song that ended Tuesday night's episode? It included the words "go and put on your favorite song" and "Lord, Lord, Lord can you see me?" Great show by the way.

    So far, this show is doing great, I hope ABC doesn't drop before it gets to spread it's wing. There is alot of talent and lots of potential, so far so good.

    So, I just watched my first episode of this show and I have to say, I love Delahoy and Banks! They are by far my favorite team and I loved the way this episode (Crime Slut) ended; so sad and gives us a little insight into Delahoy's character. I also like Cole because he seems so clean cut but OF COURSE, he isn't I'm excited for next week!

    Please, Please, Please, don't cancel this show. Every episode has been better than the one before, and I'm really starting to love it.

    Repeat question: Does anyone know the name or the artist of the song that ended Tuesday night's "One Man Band" episode? It included the words "go and put on your favorite song" and "Lord, Lord, Lord can you see me?" Great show by the way.

    This is a great show with a lot of potential. The pilot was kind of strange but once are into it the show promises. The more episodes the better it gets.

    This show is really growing on me. I had my reservations after the first episode. The forced quirkiness and the annoying dispatcher were just too much. However, episode 3, One Man Band, was really very good. Crime Slut wasn't bad either. Here's the thing though: I'm only really interested in about half of the characters and half of the stories. If the show was centered around Banks and Delahoy (and maybe even shortened to a half-hour) I think I would like it even more. Their stories in episodes 3 and 4 were much more interesting than any other stories, with the exception of Cole in episode 3, but he's way more mysterious and less relatable than Banks and Delahoy.

    Anyway, it looks like the show is finding a good balance between quirky comedy and cop-show. If the remainder of the season is as good as episodes 3 and 4 I really hope this show is given a chance.

    I've watched every episode and so far, none has disappointed. It's a shame that the ratings aren't great IMO is the best new show this season other than the Mentalist.

    I love it too. I've watch 4 episodes and it gets better each one. Everyone who likes crime drama should try cuz it gives a light hearted spin on this type of show that adds variety. Where else can we go to keep voting and word out to help it stay on air?

    I'm really diggin' the show, myself. There's so few things that the girlfriend and I can watch and enjoy together, and this is one of them. By virtue of that I'm sure it's fated to be cancelled, but I sincerely hope not. This show's pretty great.

    This show has been ok. I actually thought it would be a lot more comedic/quirkier than it currently is. It does have some potential and I do intend to keep watching it.

    I wasn't sure what to think of the show after the first two episodes (I kept falling a sleep during the pilot episode at the 20 minutes left mark) however I stuck with it and so far episodes 3 & 4 have been my favorite of the series so far, episode four being the best. I have one more episode to watch and i'll be caught up with the series, and I gotta say I'm looking forward to it.

    I also love The Unusuals. The characters are great. I didn't think Amber Tamblyn can pull off being a cop, but I was wrong. Bonus points for the catchy opening theme, too.

    If ABC needs to cancel a show, I hope it's Castle.

    I love the energy of this show; in fact, I LOVE everything about this show. It is the best cop show to come along since Hill Street Blues. The New York street scenes are alive, there is a variety of interesting characters, the music is great, the scripts are funny, and the cast is excellent. What else can you ask for?
