Life On Mars [synopsis alert]
Apparently the US Version of “Life On Mars” has concluded, and apparently it was decent enough. So no one tell me what happened or I’ll send you back 35 years!
Being in New Zealand and all, I have to wait you see. But was it Wizard of Oz or Jacob’s Ladder good?
LIFE ON MARS – “Tuesday’s Dead”
Sam Tyler finds it difficult to separate a life-and-death hostage situation taking place at County Hospital from his own strange circumstances. Stressed about a phone call where he seems to hear his mother’s voice -in 2008- begging him to wake up, he and the rest of the squad are ordered to diffuse a potentially explosive face-off in which a crazed gunman is trying to force a doctor to reverse a dangerous operation on the renegade’s brother.
Sam, Ray, Annie and Lt. Hunt are all targeted in the madman’s cross hairs, but as Sam and the 1-2-5 attempt to resolve the confrontation, he suddenly realizes that the clock ticking on the gunman’s demands parallels another deadline that could spell the end of Sam Tyler.
Dun Dun Dun…
