Have to say, I am really enjoying the BBC’s new cop shpw, Life on Mars, its all about this detective who gets hit by a car in 2006 and wakes up in 1973. So either he has gone back in time or he is in a coma and this is all a dream. Cue lots of 70′s music, fashion, and hairstyles, not to mention bent cops and un-PC attitudes, and car chases through cardboard boxes. Retro man, it is the only way to go.
I know, that doesn’t make it sound all that great, but in reality this is a really funny show, with some great characters. Personally I just love DCI Hunt; he is just horrible and yet still manages to be a good guy, just about. “You are surrounded by armed bastards”
We’ve just had episode 4, of eight, but I hear a second season in being looked at.
Also, was some miles from the city, and I noticed FM has a little Last.fm chart, so I stole the idea. But in order to make the image (right col. down the bottom) legible I had to mess a little with the layout. So if you viewing has been altered and made icky let me know, I’ll regress.
