Carrie Wells is a former police officer who has just witnessed a murder. She is has a hyper thalmethesia in which she can remember everything except her own sister's murderer. Her former lover, Al, asks her to consult on the case since she is an expert witness and she is looped back into the police work. The plot was rather simplistic and didn't provide much sophistication in plot.
The pilot episode set up alot of the show but it was really slow and the play backs for thin details are quite boring. It would be more fair of the producers to allow the audience to see the clues as well in the original shots and then run the slow motion play backs. The music was good during the show but the humor was a bit off. I couldn't tell whether it was a serous crime drama, a comedy or love story. And some times that works when a show is established but right now 32 minutes into the show it is unbalanced. The fact is if the main character suffers from hyper thalamensia she would be more haunted by all the negative images in her life which would plague her existence.
I love Poppy. I love the Aussies and I would really want this show to work. It just has to establish itself, move the pace along, offer the audience the details in the original shots and quicken the playbacks.
I will watch this show a few more weeks as I think it has promise. The performances were good.
