Anyone watch 'Life on Mars' last week?

I know, I know, I'll get back to the dog stuff, I'm busy with work and training the dogs and having ongoing panic attacks about Strummer's upcoming USDAA debut this weekend. We're so ready. We're so not ready. NO, we're ready dammit! Oh woe is me, we're so not ready. That sort of thing.

Anyway, I usually fall asleep watching 'Life on Mars' and miss the ending which is not usually a big deal since I only see the first 10-20 minutes before conking about. But last Weds. I made it 40 minutes and got into the plot enough to be irritated when I woke up just in time to miss the ending. Anybody watch it? I fell asleep just after whatsherface got picked up by the FBI and Sam and the cop with the big mustache/sideburns roughed up the bartender at the party at the toy factory. Who framed Sam? Who really killed the gangster? What happened to the hippie neighbor-abducted by aliens or maybe the FBI or a figment of Sam's imagination all along? Is there a website somewhere that recaps tv shows for middle aged dog agility ladies who can't seem to stay awake past 9:30 p.m.?


  1. I TIVO'd it. But havent' watched yet. Will let you know when I do. Isn't it available online? Hulu or somewhere?


  2. Wow, t.v. shows on the internet, what will those crazy kids think up next? Not only can I watch the show I missed but I can watch the whole season. Crazy man, crazy. Now, when will I find the time, that's the problem. I wonder if it will let me fast forward so I don't have to rewatch the whole thing. Really I just wanna know whodunnit and what happened to the hippie chick.

    And why the heck am I paying for cable when I can watch it for free on the computer?

    I think tomorrow I'll start recording on the VCR right at the start of the show so if I fall asleep I can watch it later. Ghetto Tivo I guess you call it, wish I'd thought of that sooner. I did notice they're cancelling the show so tomorrow night will be the grand finale.

  3. I found the ending very disappointing. The FBI agent was not really an FBI agent. He framed Sam. The hippie lady neighbor reappeared, I think saying her boyfriend took off with her furniture - but we still don't know if she's real or not. Sam almost jumps off the roof, at the encouragement of the fake FBI agent, who has read Sam's file and is telling him that is how he can get home -- Sam does not jump.

    That's all I can remember.

  4. Bummer that it got canceled. It was a good show.

  5. Thanks Jen, you rock! Now I don't have to try to rewatch it. Fake FBI agent-I didn't see that coming. I suppose his motives will be revealed in tonight's grand finale.

    It is a shame that it got cancelled. I'm not a big t.v. person but I liked that show. The British version was way better but this was still better than 90% of the drek on t.v. If you get BBC America the British sequel called Ashes to Ashes and set in the 80's with a woman detective airs on Sat. nights (and probably reairs at other times/days). Again, not as good as the original but still better than most of the crap out there.
