What I'm Watching: Life on Mars

Life on Mars: Season 1, Episode 2 "The Real Adventures of the Unreal Sam Tyler" (C-)

That's going to do it for me with this show. It's surprisingly boring, and already super-repetitive after only one premiere installment. All of the characters (namely Michael Imperioli and Harvey Keitel) are far too outlandish to be taken seriously. This isn't 1973, it's a cartoonish version of the past. Jason O'Mara is an able lead, and he has Gretchen Mol supporting him, but that can't save this show from being very much corny and just as often uninteresting.
