A WORK OF GENIUS,
This review is from: Life Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
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.
