The producers did a stellar job on this series. Inspired by the British version. This one took quite a few right and left turns from the original, but is still absolutely great to watch. Some of these episodes are really intense.

The original British version of LOM also has a sequel, entitled "Ashes to Ashes". All of it is prime fare, and very worth while to spend some time on.

Put all the Emmy's in a box...

"...and give them to the actors and writers behind Life On Mars. That's my prediction...another case of "posthumous award giving". The observation has been made that the American LOM has been adapted from the British version but I understand that the US production followed the original storyline for a while and then took a few radical turns. Variations on a theme, I guess, but it has been quite a ride. I assumed that they would have to bring this story to a conclusion within a couple of seasons because the premise just couldn't be strung out forever but ABC sure isn't doing it justice or doing us any favors by cutting it short and telling the producers to wrap it up prematurely.

If you didn't love Harvey Keitel before this series then you owe it to yourself to watch all of these episodes. Michael Imperioli absolutely rules as Ray...I swear that I knew this character back in the Seventies...really. Gretchen Mol is just enchanting. Jason O'Mara makes his lost-in-time character so sympathetic that you can't help but worry about where he'll end up in the end.

So long, Life On was all too brief but it was wonderful."

"Just like a person who dies at a young age, this show was dropped right as it was hitting its stride. I watched this show from the very first episode and LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it. The acting was superb. Michael Imperioli and Harvey Keitel were brilliant, as were Jason O'Mara and
Gretchen Mol. Since I grew up in the 70's, I was amazed at how effective the writers were able to capture that time period. I couldn't wait each week to see what song choices would be selected for each episode. I was
crushed when it was cancelled but have to give credit to the writers for
closing up a very complicated plot in 10 minutes. The ending, while rushed, did answer many questions for a very clever show. I will
certainly buy the DVD to have something decent to watch since network
television cannot keep any quality shows.
Awesome acting!

"I loved this show when it aired on ABC. I never missed an episode. I laughed many times and was very impressed by how it really looked like 1973. The actors? They looked like they belonged in that era. And though I have never seen the British version, I applaud the Amercan version. Sad to see it go, but I will definitely get the DVDs to watch any time I please. No matter how crammed the ending may seem. I think it tied it all up neatly instead of leaving you hanging as some other shows do."
