Life on Mars, Episode 3

This was another great episode. Sam Tyler is quickly becoming one of my favorite personalities on TV. The show is superbly acted, and the cast works together really well.

From what I can tell, this was the first episode of the American series that was completely different than the British series. It dealt with homosexuality and the fact that in the 70s it really wasn't accepted at all. In fact, when it turns out that the murder victim in the episode is gay, a few of the police officers decide to stop working on solving the case altogether.

The show continues to impress me with it's visuals and it's acting. But the thing that I love the most about it is the music. The theme songs and other music that they put to the show work perfectly with every situation, and really help give the show more of the vibe that it's actually the 70s.

We got a new idea as to what could be going on in this episode...when Tyler decides that maybe he actually IS from the 70s, and the idea of 2008 was all just a dream. This idea comes to a screeching halt at the end of the episode however, when Tyler sees himself as a boy in 1973...

Last but not least...this show has quickly become the show that I look forward to the most every week. With "LOST" not coming back until January at the earliest, this show has become my current favorite TV show...and I hope it sticks around for a good long while.
