5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 6 Feb. 2007
By 
This review is from: Life On Mars : Complete BBC Series 1 [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
In a TV landscape filled with third-rate non-entities in desperate career-reviving "reality" shows, came this; this (and doctor Who) is proof positive that it is possible to make intelligent entertaining mass-audience drama in these mutli-channel times.

John Simm has just the right mix of intensity and bewilderment as Sam Tyler, a 21st Century man caught in a very different world, while Phil Glenister must be having a blast (in the TV role of his career) playing Gene Hunt, a mix of all those hard-nosed 70's TV cops. and then, just when you think it's all "so far so, stereotypical", the rug gets pulled from under you and your expectations are totally confounded when characters react in the most unexpected but believable ways.
