“Life on Mars” is an amazing David Bowie song. It is an even better television program on BBC America. I just saw the pilot and it was just wonderful. I can’t really say why. Perhaps it was the acting? The story? I really don’t know.. All I can say is that I loved it and I want more. In some ways if reminds me of the Sopranos episodes this season where Tony was in a coma, in some ways it reminds me of The Matrix and in some ways Quantum Leap.
The pilot is showing again tonight at 9PM on BBCA and those of you who can get BBCA should make an effort to check it out. The pilot is really important since it sets the story up. If you plan on checking out the show at all, I reccomend that you don’t miss the pilot.
