No Life on Mars

I watched last night's series finale of the American version of Life on Mars. While I've enjoyed the show, the times I've seen it, I lost interest in it about half-way through the fourth episode of the series. It just didn't measure up to the original UK version of the series. Philip Glenister's portrayal of Gene Hunt in the original series was just superb.

All I will say about the series finale of Life on Mars USA is that the end of the the show illustrated the difference between the U.S. and UK versions of the show, and was very American in style. This just confirmed that I really loved the UK version of the series, and the American one was just a somewhat hollow reinterpretation of the original.
