It's regrettable that, in adapting the original British version of Life on Mars, the producers replaced its understated focus with swagger and overstatement; a fantastical premise is more persuasive if the moment-to-moment story makes sense--regrettably, the narrative logic here owes as much to 1970s cop shows as does the production design. Everyone twinkles to excess, wooing the audience and undercutting any sense of grit. The cast is a charismatic bunch who don't need to spend so much time with rueful smiles and approving looks. The producers knew they'd been canceled in time to resolve the mysteries in the final episode, which diverges significantly from the British version. Also included are a number of cheerful audio commentaries and featurettes, including a tour of the set with '70s icon Lee Majors. --Bret Fetzer

This is a series that ran for only one season in the US, as opposed to the original UK version's two. The episodes are almost identical until the end. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Charles F. Kartman

|Subtitles, "Life on Mars"||
Yes, it has subtitles. You'll need to go to "Setup" each time you start the DVD and activate them, but it's easy to do.

|Was our ending the originally intended? [Spoilers]||
It's funny, because when I saw the ending to the U.S. show when it first aired, I was OK with it. But then, as the hours went by, I felt less thrilled about it. Too bad. It was a great show with a few uneven parts (Sam turning into a sex hound with a complete stranger for one episode was way out... Read More
