"Fire up the Quattro!"

I enjoyed the first episode. A few observations:

1) Definitely a different feel than LoM. I'm not just talking about the 80s, but the characters feel different as well. It may be that they have grown, but they feel a little subdued.

2) I feel like it's a LOT more creepy. That clown thing/guy is freaking me out!

3) I enjoy KH character and her interaction with Gene. Her approach is a nice counterpoint to Sam and Gene. Her analysis "reveal" on the whiteboard was scary.

I'm definitely looking forward to the reamining 7.

Lastly:
Spoiler:
So does this mean that Sam is dead/dead? One reason that maybe not - didn't his file say prolonged comma, despite her saying he killed himself?

I've seen him. He's like fire, and ice, and rage. Like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever. He burns at the center of time and sees the turn of the univrse.

Spoiler:
I wonder... Ray said that Sam "died" last year, which would be 1980. Possible that he was in the coma for seven years (1973-1980), and then when he died in real life, he also died in the LoM/A2A world? If he only died recently in the real world, it might explain why Alex was looking at his file. But if he was in a coma for seven years, it would mean that the show began in 2013...


Anyways, I finished the first series a few weeks ago and while IMO it's a bit disjointed compared to LoM, it's still quite good especially as they continue to develop Gene Hunt as a character... especially in the last episode of the season.

Re: Ashes to Ashes - The followup to Life on Mars

Er, wasn't sure whether to bump this thread or start a new one (didn't see a newer thread for A2A).

Promos are out for the third and final series of Ashes to Ashes, starting this Friday.

Re: Ashes to Ashes - The followup to Life on Mars

Thanks to the thread about The Inbetweeners, I've been hooked on British TV lately. I watched most of the 1st season of Life on Mars when it was on BBCA but I'm going to go back and rewatch it then catch up on Ashes to Ashes.

Funny that American networks will copy the premise of British shows but very rarely copy the "quality over quantity" theory of seasons with a limited number of episodes and only a few seasons of a show. Guess milking every last nickel out of a show trumps ending a series before its just a shell of its former self.

Looking forward to the return of the Quattro.

I just wish this show didn't have all the voices from the future crap

I never managed to finish Series 1 and it still isn't on Netflix.
