One of the best TV series ever,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ashes to Ashes - The Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I will start by recommending that anyone who buys this also buys Life on Mars as it will add extra layers of complexity and understanding to what is an already fantastic show.
Ashes to Ashes is a cop show fantasy with brilliant characters, one liners, and plots. The "we're in the 80s" theme is shoved down your throat somewhat in the first few episodes and season one takes a while to get going (which led to a few Life on Mars fans being disappointed with this new show).
The ending of the series is heartbreaking and explains everything. You know that the writers knew where it was going to end from the very beginning. It makes re-watching the series an interesting experience as the clues are everywhere.
