Life On Mars

Anyone?
Just to see Harvey Keitel on network television was enough of a shock to start watching this show. After 8 or 9 episodes I can say without a doubt I'm hooked. Sure, it's not The Wire or The Shield or The Sporano's and it is network t.v. but it's pretty good show and certainly worth a shot.

This is one of my favorite shows, I think it has a little of everything it. I also like the
70's vibe going on it, it makes me laugh that I can remember the time clearly and what a difference there is today.

It is a terrible copy of a good BBC program.

Last weeks episode was one of the worse writing fiascos, I have ever seen.


It is a shame seeing good actors, Kietel, Imperlioli in suh a poorly executed show.

Oh, there's a copy of the UK version? Because the UK version was bloody amazing, doubt it could be topped unless they did it differently somehow

Yeah, I've refrained from watching the U.S. version because I thought the original was one of the most original things I'd seen in a while. Funny, suspenseful, and ultimately very moving.

Unless a fan of that recommends the new one to me, I'm staying away.

The first ep. of the US version just aired on Australian TV.

And what a terrible re-make, the hummor doesn't translate well at all.

And the music in the American one doesn't do anything for the show.

I've been surprised by this one, I was expecting it to be terrible but it's not too bad so far

Ditto that. I do NOT understand why everything has to become a "*insert nationality here* version," it irritates me beyond belief.

It only gets worse.

The episode last night had this scene in a biker bar.

It was painful to watch, the bikers looked like a church choir, that some one glued some cheap fake beards on,
and then they bought a couple of brand new bandannas,
and wrapped them around a couple of foreheads, and wallah, we have bikers!!

Geez, a high school production, could do a more believable scene

I did not enjoy the film Traffic as much as many
because, I was had watched the BBC series Traffik - it far outshines, the film.

I think I saw one episode of the BBC - Life on Mars
it was outstanding, truly top notch


Then I read they were doing an American version,
so I stayed away and waited for that.

What a huge disappointment.

I've always wanted to see the British one. I watched the first part of this season, and I liked it well enough. Haven't caught the 2 latest.

I lived through that music, it is good

they are just using it wrong

last week they played Cream - White Room

that is more of a 60s song than a late? 70s song.


and if I had not seen the BBC version, I might not be as critical of this one.

That said, the writing is bad, bad, bad and Imperlioni and Keitel are embassasing themselves in the mess.
