Granny Tyrell

Life on mars

I just started checking out some (not that) new TV-shows, I heard about lately. Supernatural for one, but I think, I´ll get to that, when I´ve seen more of it, and Life on mars.

Life on mars is a bbc show about a cop,Sam Tyler, who has a near fatal car accident, that sends him into a coma. His consciousness is transported to the seventies, where he is still a cop and starts to solve crimes, that are somehow related to his future. Sounds strange, but is actually really good stuff. The leading actor is the guy who played the Master in the Doctor Who season final, John Simm would be the name.

The show has the british thing going. Lot´s of plot an qick dialog packed in a short amount of time. Not overly much drama or political correctness, which is fun mostly because of Tylers completely anti-correct partner/boss.

If the overall plot evolves nicely this could definitly be a show to hook me.
