I'm happy, hope you're happy too

Haven't quite finished the second series yet (still have 2 more episodes to watch), but I am thoroughly enjoying it. The drama is fast-paced and excellently written, the jokes are laugh-out-loud funny and the music is a welcome addition. Furthermore, the characters are lovable and well-rounded - I don't think there's a single (recurring) character I don't like in this series.
After watching Life on Mars and loving it, I was not able to see Ashes to Ashes until now. Let me tell you, the wait was worth it. Ashes to Ashes is the perfect follow-on to Life on Mars, and I love the references to Sam Tyler which are littered about the series. The story arcs are well conceived and the individual storyline of each episode is fulfilling, unlike many dramas, which leave feeling that the story could have gone further.
Overall, I would strongly recommend seeing this (especially if you saw and liked Life on Mars!). I look forward to watching Series 3 ASAP!
