Good ending, I've decided. Very Philip K. Dick.
don't know who Philip K. is. Dick.
i've only seen the forst series
is going to be focused on Gene Hunt - whether it's a sequel or prequel no one knows... yet.
Set in the 80s.
so I didn't know..
it will be called Ashes to Ashes and will be set in the 80s. It will feature a hard hitting, no nonsense, sassy single mum alongside one of the the fellas who was in Life on Mars.
It sounds pretty awful, which is how i thought Life on Mars sounded.
Life on Mars sounded awful, but the missus persuaded me to watch it and I was hooked - although less for the actual storyline behind it all and more for DCI Hunt's antics.
EMPRESS NU TROUSERS
Second series: I stopped watching cos I did done got bored.
Was that your intention? Was it?
but I know what happened, and it sounds like a masterpiece of mainstream sci-fi/cop show madness. BASTARD!
Annie. Can't work her out.
I was prepared to be dissapointed, and that was the best ending I think possible. Very pleased.
how scarily similar is it to the story behing 'Deloused in the Comatorium'?? Evil Doctor and all! Scarily so, I tells ya.
the third episode of the second series of Care Bears.
I was hopeing they'd crank up the weirdness (not the new Stooges album) a bit, but it just seemed a bit scrappy to me.
I did a fear-poo when that little girl burst into his bedroom though!
finished now then?
there was something on bbc.co.uk about a sequel set in the 80s
It's gonna be about Gene Hunt in the 80s
Ashes to ashes
and gene hunts sidefick / partner is a WOMAN!!! and a SINGLE PARENT!!!!
that looks SHIT. what's the point? Is it more politically correct to make another series with another time travelling cop but make her a single mum? I just want to see Gene Hunt's hilarious 80s antics.
BOLLOCKS TO YOU.
time travelling cop worth bothering about
I feel GREAT now. :D
when he realised that the TV being switched off by spooky girl was Sam dying, my 9 year old burst into tears, and was inconsolable for a while
People in the office said he killed himself or something?
And had to get to grips with stuff, but he didn't like it because there was no excitement (everything was made not so subtly grey to put the point across) so he jumped off a building, got back, got laid, died (so he just stayed in't 70's
oh yeah, *spoiler alert*
if she was rank or hot.
thats all i needed, your reassurance.
Wait 'til the nipper watches Total Recall and Minority Report and see how they like THEM endings apples.
Spoiler coming up.........he sees the light in the tunnel if he moves willingly towards it he comes too, but he doesnt, he stays where he is torn, and then he imagines himself waking up and existing in the real world (he doesnt actually wake up, because he is imagining it the surgeon actually looks like morgan the copper (even though Samr would never have seen him)
Sam doesnt like the prospect and runs away from this vision of the future and decides not to recover/pull through he, chooses to stay and fades he ignores the last opportunity to pull through (radio in car) and the trauma of the operation coupled with his no longer fighting to return to the 'real' world results in him slipping away to the other side (when the girl turns off the telly) (UNLESS the girl switching off the telly just represents the complete severing of any awareness/connection wit hthe real world, i.e. a permenant non recoverable coma)
I think the barman is his shamen and gives him the advice he needs to make the decision he needs to make, with confidence (remember shamen dont just save people in this life, they also make the passing over easier for people too.
That he had a modern day girlfriend who'd been kidnapped/disappeared in the first episode and he wanted to go back and save her? That got a bit swept under the carpet didn't it? Maybe he found out she was dead and topped himself.
she 'let him go' leading everything neatly to him not really needing to return.
whilst he was in the coma
In the first episode he catches the man responsible in 1973, thus preventing that from happening.
'life on mars' oficially brilliant and wonderful and with no plot holes.
This definitely answers everything...
Is reading some sort of impressive thing up in Leeds?
If he was actually in a coma then he only caught the kidnapper in his coma 1973 not the real 1973 so surely his gfriend is still kidnapped.
(bear in mind i watched none of series 2 so don't know what I'm talking about really)
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go!
It's the freakiest show...
My Mum's been recording it for me so I can watch it when I'm over next month. Got to see the first two episodes last time I was over and very good they were too.
Got as far as reading your "good ending" bit Theo... will have to do for now :D
I watched it "live" and then went downstairs and announced "WOW!!! I would never have guessed that he was really a robot from the future who was also a ghost!" and my father clamped his hands over his head and told me to shut up and stop spoiling it for them. Fools.
Nonsense. What a let down. Should have been way more nuts than that.
And he could have died jumping off that building and that would be that.
although he didnt actually jump off the building, when he was back in the noughties it was just him imagining what it would be like to come back, he was actually in a kind of limbo in the tunnel.....he hadnt made a choice at that point
They made out he'd been there for ages. Like days.
Maybe I didn't get that. Still, he can't live in a coma forever. Surely they'll switch him off eventually. He didn't think about that did he!
from the Manchester Evening News you'll see the creator explicitly states that in fact he does return to 2005 and then commits suicide.
Also, his return will be integral to the sequel.
