Advertisements I keep trying to struggle through episodes of Unforgettable but even from the time I saw the previews I did not see how this perfect memory would help a police officer much, especially a detective, and I was right. She goes into some weird trance at looks at things she is already looking at, the whole thing makes no sense. Of all the jobs in the world that might really benefit from a perfect memory, a police detective is no where in the top 10,000. A waitress would get more benefit from this skill. I admit I have been choking these shows down like bad medication and the first episode I barely paid any attention. Episode 2 was only slightly more to see enough times how her "memory" works, and they just show her in an area, and then she goes slow mo looking at the same area again. Again, how is perfect memory good for a police detective? Her job is to investigate and figure out what happened where she was not and when she was not there. She can use a notepad and a taperecorder. There are so many more jobs where a perfect memory would be more suitable. Heck she was a nurse, that job benefits more from her perfect recall than her being a police detective.
