Relating to the Emmy award-winning TV show Life on Mars (UK). And how the American remake is inferior to the original.
Due to lack of new Mars-Ashes canon, related shows will be posted: Mad Dogs, Case Histories (by Monastic Productions) and NBC's Awake (LOM-esque US show coming soon this fall). Jason Isaacs stars in the latter two.
GENE: He didn’t do anything, did he? It’s the way of the world. SAM: A world which creates coppers like Ray. Awash with institutionalised corruption. You know, people like Rathbone need to be surgically removed from the force. GENE: We can’t change this world, Sam. Only learn how to survive in it. SAM: I don’t give up that easily. GENE: Good.
Life on Mars 1.07
I had some time on my hands this morning while I waited for Apple’s WWDC Keynote to begin so I decided to watch episode seven of LOM. (These are the days where I wish this show had episode titles.) I often forget how much I enjoy this episode because Chris Chibnall, and he has written some of my least favorite Doctor Who and Torchwood episodes so I carry on bits of a grudge to show to show. Anyway it had a lot of great moments where Sam and Gene come to a mutual understanding of each other, though Sam got basically tricked into completing a proper investigation. It’s sweet in that weird Gene ♥ Sam Life on Mars-y way—real sweet.
