Life on Mars

I saw the end of this excellently crafted series today. I can certainly understand fogod42's reaction to what was an entirely appropriate ending.

Compelling viewing? Certainly.

Excellent characterisation? Check

High production values? Yep.

Well scripted with a black sense of humour popping up every so often? Got that. 

But I'm not sure if its a show I can watch again. Fortunately, I'll get the chance to starting next week on the ABC (Sundays 8:30 apparently). 

If you haven't seen it, Life on Mars is certainly one of the most intelligent cop shows I've seen in a long time and definitely recommended. At least once.
