| Unsub
This television series of eight episodes was so far ahead of its time I am not surprised that it did not last more than a few episodes. I do not feel that it was the inspiration for the Crime Scene Investigation shows. I feel that the new series Criminal Minds might have been a clone - right down to the team plane. The one similarity to Crime Scene Investigation is the lab connection. Criminal Minds doesn't appear to show a lot of lab time. Unsub was a very dark show but excellent television. I got to watch old old taped copies and wish the series would come out on disk. David Soul had visibly matured from his Starsky & Hutch persona and was very believable as head of a country wide forensic team. Many parts of the show were much more realistic than Crime Scene Investigation (no blonde women with flowing locks gathering evidence at the scene of a crime) these people went in with booties and head coverings. Their cases were also much more grisly than the Crime Scene Investigation shows...comparable with Criminal Minds...not quite up to Bones. It was also made at a time when most television shows were still more eye candy than realism. David Soul showed his chops as an actor in this series.
