5.0 out of 5 stars Still Something Different... April 19, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The quirky NBC crime drama "Life" gets a second season, featuring understated British actor Damian Lewis as LA detective Charlie Crews, who spent 12 years in prison for a mass murder he didn't commit before returning to duty anchored by the Zen Buddism he learned to survive his incarceration. His partner is detective Dani Reese (Sara Shahi), recovering substance abuser and daughter of the policeman who may have helped frame Crews. The pair are assisted by Bobby Stark (Brent Sexton), Crews' last buddy from his former days on the force. Their new boss is Lieutenant Kevin Tidwell (Donal Logue), a transfer from New York who seems out of place in laid-back LA but who learns to appreciate Crews and Reese for very different reasons. Adam Arkin returns as Ted Early, once Charlie's white collar criminal cellmate.

The new season follows a familar formula: the detectives each week are handed a new case that proves far more complicated than first appearances. Crews' Zen Buddist approach invariably provides unique, unexpected, and often humorous insights to cases involving, for example, a murder during a student prison experiment, the landing of a plane by a dead astronaut, and the suffocation of a rock star impersonator.

The weekly cases also allow the viewer to watch the slow blossoming of the relationship between Crews and a once skeptical Reese. Crews is by turns a quirky but kind searcher for truth and a shockingly tough cop, a combination Reese learns to value. As Reese learns the truth about her father, she and Crews will discover they have more in common than just a badge.

In a parallel story arc, Crews secretly unravels clues to the conspiracy responsible for his frameup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life - NBC's Most Underrated Show on TV April 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first season of Life was strike abbreviated and just enough to get you hooked on the premise, the characters and the writing. But Season Two of the show was like opening a gift - both in terms of the acting, writing, technical direction, choice of interesting LA venues and wonderful camera work; and advancing the story arc of Crews wrongful imprisonment's genesis. The relationship of Crews and Reese has become stable and supportive, that's not to say that Charlie Crews (Damian Lewis) still doesn't irritate, exasperate and often amaze Dani Reese (Sarah Shahi), but they are balanced and he's not constantly rescuing the "maiden in distress". This season you get to see the cracks in Charlie's Zen armor and the effect his trust and confidence has on a very distrusting Dani. And as much as it pains me to admit it, Captain Kevin Tidwell (Donal Logue) has proven to be more than a comedic foil. He's a real person who adds to the story and helps the team through the season, whilst continuing a irregular and illicit romantic relationship with Dani. But he's good for her and that relationship moves Dani toward the season finale reveal that most viewers were looking for with Crews. It's about how you find your faith again, the renewal of trust and the connections we make and the importance and wonder of love (in all forms).

The appearance of wonderful guest stars doesn't take the focus off the central relationship in the series, that of Crews and Reese.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Zen Crime Show May 24, 2009
How often can you say that? I'm usually happy with anything that's not Reality TV. But this show leaves you craving more. Even though the Second Season wraps up some of the answers of Charlie Crew's conspiracy theory, there are still a lot left. I'm hoping NBC lets USA pick up a new person for their 'Characters Welcome' add. I can't imagine not seeing this show for a few more seasons. I would love to see Charlie and his first partner, Bobby, work together on some more cases. And now that Shahi has had her baby, she can get back to work as Charlie's best partner, Dani. Regardless, Season Two is great to watch over and over. If you haven't got Season One yet, make it a dual purchase. It's worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOW TO KILL A GREAT SERIES August 11, 2009
If you ever wonder why NBC is the cellar dweller, wonder no more. They take very good shows like this and Journeyman, jack them around on the schedule, underpublicize them, and there you have it. One of the best cop shows on TV, and now it's gone.

You can see and feel the frustration in the last few shows on the actor's faces.

There are several eloquent and detailed reviews here, so no reason to go over the same issues.

Cheers was a new show that was at the bottom of the ratings. Brandon Tartikoff the NBC honcho at the time, saw the quality of the show and stayed with it. Cheers turned out to be a blockbuster hit in it's second year. Life never had a chance. We watched every episode but what a chore trying to find it!

TOO BAD for us and NBC....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great crime drama
Season 2 of this crime drama series continues to build the characters and weave in additional storylines. It captivates its audience and keeps them guessing the whodunit angle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series! I wish they'd gone more than 2 seasons
This season was great, but the ending was a bit abrupt. I'm guessing they lost Damien Lewis to "Homeland" and had to wrap it up quickly. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky
This series holds up OK considering it first aired in 2007. I like that each episode has a start to finish story, while the underlying plot weaves through the whole series.
