BACKSTROM is a subversive and comic crime procedural about an unhealthy, offensive, irascible – albeit brilliant – detective who is brought back from exile to run the Portland Police Bureau's Special Crimes Unit (S.C.U.).

Detective Lieutenant EVERETT BACKSTROM (Emmy Award nominee Rainn Wilson, “The Office”) is a man with no filter. After a five-year exile to the traffic division for offensive behavior, he has returned from disgrace to lead Portland's newly minted S.C.U. Tasked with navigating the city's most sensitive and serious cases, he must solve each crime as he tries, and fails, to change his own self-destructive behavior.

One thing I like about this show is the lead character.Somewhere he reminds me of Dr. House. He is sociopathic, arrogant, sarcastic, messy, kiddish offensive and Rainn Wilson did the role convincingly. Though I miss a strong "main storyline". Otherwise the show is just ok.
