5.0 out of 5 stars THE PATH TO ZEN - ENDS HERE! 23 Aug 2009
By Mr. William Oxley VINE VOICE
The second series of 21 episodes is the last series as NBC have canceled LIFE! We can only hope for a miracle resurrection.

Damian Lewis plays fruit loving Zen disciple Detective Charlie Crews, the beautiful Sarah Shahi as Dani Reese (in real life due to her pregnancy she is temporarily replaced by Gabrielle Union as Jane Seever), and the cool Adam Arkin as his live-in friend Ted Early (he deserves more air time!). The new police boss is Donal Logue as Captain Kevin Tidwell who is really well cast but definitely needs a haircut.

Like all the good recent dramas (Dexter, The Mentalist) there is a thread running through each series that slowly gets revealed. Who were responsible for framing Crews for murder? In the second series he continues to get closer to the main protagonists in the conspiracy that may include rogue cops, FBI agents, and Russian mobsters. Maybe too close.

The series continues to be original, involving, and well acted. The highlight of each episode is the way that Crews comes up with the answers due to his alternative look on life and people. Do not miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show - very sorry if season two is the end 11 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Life is a fantastic show. Damian Lewis' wonderful performance ensures that it transcends the usual cop-show routine and becomes something truly unique. Charlie Crews is a refreshing different cop and very cool in his own way. The scripts are of consistently high standard with witty dialogue and interesting characters. The new captain is a great addition to the show and his unexpected, yet ultimately convincing relationship with Dani is one of the shows little joys. I assume that the writers only found out that they wouldn't be renewed for a third season part way through producing season two as certain plot lines are seemingly abandoned (Charlies relationship with his wife for instance) as the writers concentrate on wrapping up the main story threads. It's a lovely show though with a satisfying finale. One of the best US shows of the last couple of years and well worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WORK OF GENIUS 27 April 2010
By Tony
I've watched both series on DVD. It may not have got the viewing figures NBC wanted but that says more about the intelligence (or lack of) of the American TV watcher than it does about the quality of this programme. It's brilliant from the acting of all the main protagonists (Lewis is astonishing), to the music, to the quirky stories.

I'm not sure if a third series was needed as the loose ends were pretty much tied up. It's now a thing of beauty like Life on Mars. The final episode of series two had me enthralled from start to finish as I had no idea what was going to happen (it had the feel of a movie) and the last five or six minutes at the orange grove were breathtaking and I had to watch that section several times over as soon as I finished it because the revelation right at the end if you can call it that (I won't spoil it) had me close to tears and I had to watch it again.

You should see this. TV doesn't get any better. Take note ITV, BBC and Channel 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series, fun to watch 15 Aug 2011
I wanted Life on DVD because I missed some of the episodes on TV and I was missing some links for the final solution of the "Set Up" that brought Charlie Cruise into prison.I loved every minute of it. Damian Lewis is a great actor. He speaks a perfect American accent, what brings me to the only negative point. I'm German and much better in understanding British English, so subtitles would have helped a bit, but after some Episodes I got used to it.
The Zen philosophy of the series comes from Alan W. Watts.

My favourite quote:
"We are none of us alone, even if we exhale it is inhaled by others. The light that shines upon me shines upon my neighbour as well. In this way everything is connected to everything." ( Life Season 1, "Farthingale")

4.0 out of 5 stars Total shame 26 April 2010
Why is it that the suits always can the gems?
This is a cracker of a series , and thoroughly deserved a third season....

Damian Lewis is a brilliant lead, and the whole thing is brilliantly written...

3.0 out of 5 stars not as great as series one, but it does pick up 19 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Husband and I loved series one, thought it was a genuinely brilliant show - great script, great stories, great characters. Series 2 started off very disappointing. Writing was really pretty awful, but thankfully we stuck it out, as it picked up towards the middle of the series and (almost) returned to the top standard of series one. All in all we felt it was worth watching given how much we loved series one, despite the dodgy start to the season.

3.0 out of 5 stars But not as we know it 22 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not as good as the first series, but possibly this is due to being used to the characters now. Still, an excellent series with 'interesting' stories and characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant series, lacking sound quality... 1 April 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this after seeing a couple of the episodes on satellite TV (which I now know were from Series 2) and loving them. The episodes in this series are as good if not better. I loved every minute of every one. I bought this in spite of the fact that I am slightly hard of hearing and other reviews had said that the sound wasn't clear and there were no subtitles. This is the case, but I was able to rewind the few instances when I could not get the sense of what was said, or when I missed one of Charlie's brilliant "thoughts". While it was certainly a failing to produce this DVD with sub-quality sound and without subtitles, I'd thoroughly recommend still buying it if you like slightly off-the-wall humour in a not-too-serious drama series.
