is there life on mars?

New fandom! (of course I could have guessed this one *g*)

Wow. Oh, wow.

I want to wrap Sam Tyler up in a blankie and take him home with me. Can I, please?

The pilot for this show absolutely blew my socks off. The mix of detective drama and high-concept mind-bending scifi (?), all mediated through fascinating characters in a period setting, and the dark chocolate icing of John Simm's astonishing acting. (Liz White and Philip Glenister are no slouches either, but John Simm... *faints before the awesome*)

I'm almost done with series one. I really kind of want to see series two, but it's not due out here in the US until November. Ah well.
