The Unusuals'The Unusuals'
(10PM, ABC) series premiere
The title pithily sums up the quirky, secrets-keeping detectives of the NYPD's Homicide unit, where Det. Casey Shraeger (Amber Tamblyn) is transferred to after working undercover as a hooker in Vice.

She's paired with Det. Walsh (Jeremy Renner), who's obsessed with tracking down the murderer of his former partner. The rest of the motley crew includes Delahoy (Adam Goldberg), who wants to get killed on the job and his partner, Banks (Harold Perrineau), who's so afraid of dying on the job that he won't remove his bulletproof vest.

Then there's super religious Cole (Josh Close), who's trying to keep his shady past a secret from his partner and his boss.

Billy's got a sneaky snake on his hands when a poisonous reptile slithers into a tattoo parlor. And when you're allowing someone to poke you with a tiny needle over and over and over again, well, that's just not a good time to have that person get a pop-in visit from a snake.
