Al tells Carrie at the scene that he and a former colleague worked on two murder cases that were similar to the one they are now investigating.

The second season of the CBS crime show “Unforgettable” called “Til Death” became active last night. The series about Detective Carrie Wells, played by actress Poppy Montgomery, started again – a series that has had its ups and downs remaining on the air.

This is what Montgomery stated in an interview on tvguide.com -

"Oh, my God! I can never keep [our schedule] straight!"Poppy Montgomery tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "Carrie could, but I can't! Oh, we were on last summer. Now we're airing in April. Then we come back in June. And who knows after that. I'm just glad we're back on again!"

Detective Carrie Wells has a symptom called hyperthymesia, which Wikipedia defines as “ the condition of possessing an extremely detailed autobiographical memory. Hyperthymesiacs remember an abnormally vast number of their life experiences.” She uses this technique in solving murders.

Cast members also include actor Dylan Walsh (who plays her partner Al Burns). Walsh was seen in the 2002 movie Bloodwork and in episodes of Castle and Law and Order: SVU. Actress Jane Curtain plays the medical examiner. Curtain has appeared in films but she is best known as one of the original members of Saturday Night Live; and in other popular television comedies Kate and Allie and 3rd Rock from the Sun.

The Red Road

This is an interesting series that premiered Feb. 21 on Sundance TV. The new series has received rave reviews. The program consists of characters with secrets, lies, murders and cover-ups. People who use these elements to try to get what they want. It’s a world where Native Americans and whites collide, where young interracial love is threatened and forsaken. A world where a policeman does not tell the truth about his wife, a former alcoholic who’s involved in a hit-and-run and is diagnosed as a schizophrenic.

The main Native American in the story, a Lenape Indian, is out of prison and continues his treacherous path to start a drug operation. He won’t let anyone stand in his way. He knows about the policeman's wife situation and uses it to carry out his task.

The main actors in the series are Martin Henderson (who plays the cop Harold Jenson); Philip Kopus ( who plays the Lenape Indian Jason Momoa); Julianne Nicholson (who plays the cop’s schizoid wife Jean Jensen); and Tamara Tunie (who plays Marie Van Der Veen).

If you liked the Sundance series “Top of the Lake,” and “Rectify” you'll like this too. If you have not seen The Red Road, it will air tomorrow between 4 – 10 p.m. (episodes are back-to-back).
