Ashes to Ashes - BBC Series 3 (New Packaging) [DVD&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Philip Glenister
The Ashes to Ashes/Life on Mars saga comes to an end...in a way. Like so many others here, I cannot reveal much without giving away plot points and I want you to be as surprised as I was by the last episode. I will say that it is a very satisfying ending and does help make me smile when I think of Sam Tyler and Annie from LOM (no, they do not appear here, but...no I cannot tell you).

Each of the stars gets an episode to shine in as the story nears its conclusion, and I am glad they did.

Sequels that are considered better than their original are very few. Godfather Part II is the only one I can think of. However, Bride of Frankenstein could likely fit in in that slim category. Production values were much higher than the first, settings improved, and a great deal of weird and humorous characters thrown in. While thaty humor could spell disaster for a horror film, Bride of Frankenstein succeeds. It soars to great heights in the fright films' echelon, a must-see classic. Whether you only want to see Elsa Lanchester's Bride's swanlike hiss, or the looney tunes Ernest Thesinger's experiments with tiny people, you will ievtably watch the whole film unfold yet agaiin.
