Life - 10/17/07

Just watched all 3 of these last night, wish I would've watched them sooner! Good show, and Damian Lewis is easy to like.

I'm actually keeping up with more new shows than ever, most all of these new 1 hour dramas are pretty good (Journeyman, Pushing Daisies, Life, Cane, Bionic Woman). At least IMO.

Finally someone starts a Life thread BEFORE it airs (I've been starting them after they air because it's been a slow build for people to catch on to this show, but it's one of the more interesting new shows to me from the get-go).

"What do you have up there? A Costco?"

Did Crews just throw away a CrackBerry?

Didn't realize until 15 minutes in the episode that the homeless guy is played by William Sanderson, who is best known as Larry on "Newhart" - "I'm Larry, this is my brother Darrell, this is my other brother Darrel."

I recognized him as J.F Sebastian from BladeRunner!

Yeah, but it was an old version, something like a BB 7280 or earlier.

Good show tonight. This and Chuck are probably my favorites of all the new shows.

That was a great dual interrogation scene. Reminded me of the good ol' days of Homicide in the box. Very good directing and editing in that scene.

W-A-T-C-H
G-U-N


This show really works well as a straight cop drama. I like the added mystery of the Crews backstory which you really have to pay attention to and follow each week as they plop in new pieces of info. I'm not sure how long a mainstream audience will stick with that part of it though.

History says that this kind of intelligent program will not live long.

I always think of him as E.B. Farnum from Deadwood. They already have Calamity Jane as their Sergeant, they just need to get Swearengen in there as a murder suspect in an episode.

I was kind of sleepy when watching the preview for next week, but it looked like
Spoiler:
Wolcott - or the Dr. from John from Cincinnati -
is playing a "bad" guy.

The tension between Charlie and his lawyer was almost too intense and melancholy at the same time, especially since it came at the very end of the show.

Damien Lewis mannerisms as Crews is one of the reasons why I enjoy this show so much. I just hope that this show doesn't get cancelled without telling us who framed Crews and why.

Much better than last week's episode. I liked the overall story and thought the ending was great. I hope this show sticks around...maybe if more people catch up online....

I am really enjoying this show as well and hope it does not get lost. This reminds me of John Doe (with better acting) where we will see a major plot point at the end of the season as to who is framing Crews and then no more series. Seems like most of my shows have been doing this to me but it seems like there is interest in this one. I hope I hope I hope

This is my favorite show of the new season, even though I think the show has a lot of room for improvement.

I noticed him to but for some reason I remembered him playing Larry on one of the last episodes of Coach.

Good episode and I’m enjoying Roger Aaron Brown's (The District) parts.

I like this show but I hope we never see homeless guy again. Hated his character.
