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.

Me? Bizarrely, despite seeing the whole thing, and despite an interest in the spin off, I'm still not sure if I liked it.

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.
