OMG. I just watched last episode of Life on Mars.



Mind.

Blown.

Brain.

Gone.

For ever.

This just might be the best episode of anything, in history.

Only coherent enough for caps. Meta to come.

OMG.

I am up through ep 5 of Life on Mars, season 2.



So amazing. So trippy. I keep wondering what Sam's true situation is. Is he really in a coma? He keeps hearing things, but it could just be his mind trying to come up with some explanation for random phenomena which are happening to him (i.e. he is in a coma, true, but he is not hearing things, but imagining them).

Of course, his being in a coma makes so much sense: he can wrap the cases and solve things (unlike in waking life, when we see, there were failures which haunted him horribly, as I am sure there are for any detective). He is a bit of a loner, but he does have a close knit team, push-pull or not. And there is Annie. And his cases really reflect what's going on in his brain. He dreamt about his aunt, and next thing the case involves people who work the same job. He hears he is ODing, in coma world, and the hospital screwed up, and the case is about police screwing up. etc etc etc.

I have just watched ep 4 of season 2 of Life on Mars.

OMG OMG.

Seriously, this is going into my top 10 series ever. I have tons of meta, I have tons of shippy squee (Annie/Sam, OMG, the adorableness), and I have so much admiration for how this is both one of the most mind-bending things I've ever seen, and yet is grounded and funny and sad. But above all, I have SO MUCH love for Sam Tyler, who is both one of the most functional and awesome and at the same time one of the most messed up (especially if this is supposed to be in his head) characters ever.



Also, swingers (topic of ep 4's murder) suck. I was almost physically uncomfortable. But it was worth it to see Sam and Annie all fake-coupley and Sam be all protective and jealous. Heeee. And oh God, Gene Hunt is so id but I love him. I do have meta on alienation and sexism (Sam is popular with women because he is the only one who sees them as people, the rest of the cops see them as sex-objects, nothing else) and mirror narrative. But it's late so I'll post a few caps instead.

A few largely shippy caps. Mainly because it's such a treat to see Sam smile because he is so intense and messed up so much.

Caps caps caps here )

I am continuing with the brilliance that is Life on Mars and have finished ep 7 of Series 1. I have to say, LoM really is one of the most original, mind-bending, awesome shows in ever. And hey, it can make me laugh so hard that I have to pause the ep, and sniffle like a ten year old.



Screencaps and meta from eps 6 and 7 )

Picspam: Eps 6 and 7 here )



In other news, I got my Blackpool DVDs today. EEEEE! That and Our friends in the North with Christopher Eccleston. I'll be a happy obsessive.

ETA: Just finished ep 8 of Life on Mars and OMG. It broke my heart and was so perfect and OMG.

Screencaps behind cut )

ETA2: I just found out that people write Gene/Sam. I think something in my soul just died.

Promise to reply to everyone by tonight!

But now, I bring you a picspam of my new favorite thing: Life on Mars.



LoM is a British, 16-ep show, starring John Simm (OMG), as a modern day Manchester detective, Sam Tyler who, in the middle of a crisis (a serial killer has got his girlfriend), is not paying attention and ends up getting hit by a car. He wakes up in Manchester of 1973. Or does he? Is it time travel? Is he insane and is actually hallucinating modern-day stuff? Or is he in a coma, and this is his mind occupying itself? The show does not pick one, and in fact, there is continued playing with all these possibilities. Meanwhile, Sam has to come to terms with his new environment: an economically falling apart city and job in a police department that is not only without modern equipment, but routinely beats up suspects, is sexist about women and racist about minorities, etc etc.

It's an amazing show. Clever, intense, so well written. And why have I never heard of John Simm before (except for his playing the Master on Who, of course. I was totally inot him there, so wanted to check out this). I know, because I am an American. Oh well. The show is basically all about him, and he is by turns funny, intense, hopeful, heart-breaking. Sam Tyler is amazing, but he is also very human. His determination, no matter what, and all those vulnerabilities are catnip to someone who likes her fiction in a fashion I do.

Anyway, here is the picspam:

LoM, from first four eps )

Next up: picspam of last three eps of S3 of Doctor Who. And LoM meta.

I just watched the first ep of Life on Mars.

It was incredibly awesome. I am in love.

Meta coming.

Also, John Simm >>>>>> everything. That intelligent, tormented intensity is beyond hot.

Watching 'Doomsday' bits in the morning (for screencapping) is a bad BAD idea. Your face will end up blotchy like hell. FUCK. Starting with end of S2, the Doctor's arc is losing what he cares about: woman he loves in Doomsday, more and more of himself in S3, culminating with the last person of his kind, a friend/foe in LotTL. It's all about how completely isolated and lonely he is, isn't it? A catalogue of loss.

My new show to watch is Life on Mars with John Simm. After being involved in a car accident in 2006, DCI Sam Tyler wakes up to find himself in 1973. Is it real, is it a coma? Who knows. But he has to adjust.

MV:



Oh, and it seems I have to lay off the word 'soulmate,' at least in the Who fandom, as they have TPTB on their side. I found some quote where Russell T. Davies referred to Doctor/Rose as 'soulmates.' But I still hate that word the way Cybermen hate Daleks. *sticks tongue out*

In other news, Does anyone else have a favorite rainy weather book? It’s been rainy and gloomy here today (though I had an awesomely geeky lunch with Mr. Mousie, eating soup and discussing Doctor Who. Few better ways to spend your lunch).

But anyway, my favorite rainy-grey-day book, the book that I want to curel up with on the couch, drinking tea, is Charles Dickens’ Nicholas Nickleby (I am a huge Dickens fan, and it’s proof of how much I love Mr. Mousie, that I still married him despite his dislike of Dickens :P).

Rambles on NN and OMF )

In other news, I am amused that amazon.co.uk keeps trying to suggest Touching Evil to me as a DVD I might like (probably because I have other Robson Green series in there). Heh. Fat chance. I saw some of it because [livejournal.com profile] fire_snake liked it, and it was very very excellent, and it is one of the very few things I have up because it was much too depressing and angsty! True, the subject matter (the characters work in a serial killer type investigative unit) wasn’t chirpy to begin with, but the whole modus operandi for the show seemed to be to punish Robson Green’s character for any happiness he might have had. Sort of a ‘hah! You forgot for a second the utter desolation and horror of your existence! Time to do something horrific to remind you of it, like killing a cute child you feel responsible for. You need to know life’s not sunshine and puppies. Unless it’s puppies boiled by sunshine into a gloopy mess. Forget any hopes you might have had for surcease of pain for longer than two seconds, puny mortal!’

Seriously. I got off the angst train shortly after they killed a character I liked in some season because seriously, it was fictional equivalent of fingernail pulling. Excellent series, but enough to make you hit your head on a wall.
