    Just a heads up really. Ashes to Ashes, the follow up to Life On Mars, starts tonight at 9, on BBC One.
    Personally, I can't wait. I finished re-watching Life on Mars last night, ready for it. So who else is psyched for it?

    I've got no idea what it is, nor do I really care, but the adverts for it are on all the time and it's beginning to annoy me...

    Wrong thread for you and if you live in the UK and dunno what Life on Mars or the spinoff Ashes to Ashes are then my only question is...

    Have you been living under a rock :eek:

    I cannot wait for it but will have to record it and watch it when I get home cause I have 6 a side footy tonight from 8:30 till 10:30

    Gene Hunt, a man so tough that he once blocked a round house kick from Chuck Norris, and then proceeded to punch Norris so hard to the solar plexus that Norris not only fell on 'is arse, but his tears were unable to cure cancer for 18 months.

    Did anyone see the Newsnight Review of it last Friday? Pretty much slagged it off big style, saying it was full of historical errors and just generally bad

    But then again, what do they know? :)

    Don't they practically slag off anything that's popular though? I think every time I've seen it they have.
    Every other review I've seen says it's not quite as good as Life on Mars at it's best, but there does look to be better to come.

    Exactly. They always have one person who's okay, and the other two are always total wankers

    I know of Life on Mars, but I've never seen it. I've been without a TV for the past two years when I'm at uni. No point paying for the licence when there's noting other than MotD or TopGear I'd watch, and I can see games live in one of the many pubs next to my flat or down the union. £125 quid + price of a TV for TopGear isn't worth it.

    That's understandable... But I'd recommend watching it to anyone, just on the strength of Life on Mars, which was excellent.

    Well, it'll be 4 here when it airs... so I have to hope that someone does the cap and up routine by the time I get home tonight. ;)

    Any opportunity to spend time with Philip Glennister is a good one. Looking forward to Gene firing up the Quatro. :angel:

    So, who saw it then?

    I dont wanna mention any spoilers, coz I know all you nancy boys gets yer knicker's crossed whenever someone mentions any. :p

    As for A2A...Im still trying to form a single opinion, but my one word comment would be....heh?

    More confusing than LoM was and not as entertaining, but it has potenial, now where over the "time hump", I think it could get decent.

    Well that was just as good as I'd hoped. With some classic Gene Hunt lines. I was glad to see that they didn't just ignore Sam, and why he wasn't there. :thumbsup: from me.

    It was good enough for me to watch next week, but nowhere near as good as life on mars, they spent far too much time in the present before she went back, and I know it sounds petty, but the girls mole really bugged me.

    I liked it, although both Gene and Ray seemed much more subdued, hell Ray was practically nice!

    Nice to see mention of Sam, and by God Keely Hawes is sexy!

    It didn't feel as well put together as LOM, but that might just be because 1981 is more recognziable to me than 1973 as I was ten or eleven rather than two or three!

    I like the explanation for time travelling far slower in the past than in the present. Finally the end of LOM makes more sense!

    Best bit? Zippy and George obviously :D

    It was pretty good, I liked the zippy and george bit best as well.

    Its trying to one-up Life on Mars with its action scenes and their behaviour though, its not really necessary.
