Life after Mars

Well, that's that then. Life on Mars (both series) succesfully watched. Not 100% sure what to make of the last episode, but at least I don't have to run out of the room, re-tune the radio or avoid chatter when it's mentioned anymore.

I really enjoyed both series, if only for Gene Hunt's politically incorrect banter and the curious, can't quite-put-your-finger-on-it attractiveness of Annie, the WPC turned inspector, you always knew Tyler would end up giving her the benefit of his nightstick... (to quote DCI Hunt).

I'm not sure what we'll watch at home now, since Katrina and my tastes differ so wildly and it's rare to find something we both enjoy equally. The next series (Ashes to Ashes) is supposed to be set in the 80's and thats a bit crap really (being a 70's child, born in the 60's) since I just about associate the 80's with relatively crappy music.

I watched the European cup semi earlier and it was good to see the grimacing fans and players of Chelsea at the end, perhaps it'll keep pictures and discussions about the glorious demise of Leeds Utd off the back (and front) pages for a little while.

I think doing a follow on series to Life on Mars might be going a bit too far !! I'm a 70's child aswell,being born in 1967, I' loved the 70's !! This is a great book called the 70's Scrapbook, has loads of retro junk in it http://tinyurl.com/37wn47 this link is to Play.com
