Life On Mars
Normally I don't shill for TV shows. But this one has captured me so much that I'm willing to do that.
A policeman, Sam Tyler, is involved in an auto accident in 2008. When he wakes up he is in 1973.
The beginning of last night's episode was some of the best television production that I've seen in a long time. No, I can't describe it. Well, I could, but if you haven't seen it, my description would take away from the actual show. I don't want to ruin it at all.
Next Wednesday night is the series finale. I'm not one of those who will sign a petition to keep it on the air. I think that ABC and the producers did a the right thing in keeping it to a single season.
I like period pieces. I like time-travel quandaries. I like good acting and smart writing. I like this show.
