Tales from a parallel universe

Susie and spent today finishing up getting caught up with Life, which I mentioned earlier. It really is a great show, with superb characters.

Then we started in on the US version of Life on Mars. Wow. I gotta say, not so much. If you are in the states, and you've been watching this show and wondering what the big deal is, I gotta tell ya, the US version doesn't hold a candle to the UK version. In fact, it almost makes me think of Turkish Star Trek.

Go ahead, click that link. But be warned: it's EXACTLY what it says it is. In fact, this episode is their version of "The Man Trap," which was the first episode of Star Trek ever aired on television.

But if you get the chance to see the original BBC version of Life on Mars, please do. It's so much better.
