I’ve been listening to David Bowie‘s music a lot lately. And if you remember, I’ve talked about Life on Mars series a while ago. Mmh, this post is from October, so it means I’ve been Bowie obsessed for almost 4 months (omg, I should get a life). On that post I talked about the first episode of this series, saying that we gave up after watching it.
Well, I should tell you that I’ve recently finished this series and didn’t help with my Bowie‘s obsession. I wanted more, and one day, almost by accident I found out that there’s a sequel called Ashes to Ashes, yes, like the song.
After watching the first episode I was not sure what to make of it. Tyler’s world was still there, having evolved into the 80’s, Gene Hunt speech was witty and cheeky as always but Keeley Hawes‘ acting was not so convincing and at first this just seemed a little bit of the same as Life on Mars. But you know that, unlike Koen, I persevere (and I need to fill my lonely lunch hour) so I watched the complete season 1. And I became obsessed. I guessed something about the finale two episodes in advance thanks to my too good face memory, but that only increased the last twist impression.
Seriously, if you are into Bowie, 80’s music, if you’ve watched Life on Mars and you’ve enjoyed it, you have to try this series. At least you’ll have a good time watching it. And the clown will scare the hell out of you.
